“As I read Paula Bates’ novel, The Atlantean Legacy, it resonated deep within me. I could feel the beauty of what is currently unfolding on many levels. The energy of her words creates a visual image within the mind of the reader which gives form to the cellular memory held deep within. As this energy awakens and takes form within the mind, we bring to conscious awareness that which has been unconscious, thus allowing us to now communicate and share with one another through a common experience – the book. As when Avatar came out and we were able to remember the beauty of our Universal Connection through the visual representation of the ceremonies and celebrations, The Atlantean Legacy will offer the same opportunity for connection, both inside and out.”

“What a delightful, sensual, colorful, fun, exciting tale Ms. Bates has woven here. The descriptions of her Atlantis are masterfully vivid, and I so enjoyed getting to know Akana. The book gave me chills a couple of times…it would make a great movie with action and depth – all the romance and spiritual phenomenon that women love especially. Makes me want to visit Atlantis myself and visit the Spiral of Space and Time.
The book is full of light and love. It is an ideal feel-good novel with mysterious twists and visions that probably do come from some other world in space and time.”

A gripping story about a place wreathed in myth, mystery and debate, the fabled Atlantis comes alive in this tale of adventure, destiny, and human longing. Told through the eyes a young woman who inhabits this long-ago world, The Atlantean Legacy brings life and substance to a place I have always wondered and dreamed about. The descriptions of Atlantis, its inhabitants, and the events in this story held my rapt attention and fired my imagination. Exquisitely told, beautifully described, this book will hold a favorite place on my list of books read! I look forward to more stories from Paula Bates!

The story pulled me in and I didn’t want to leave. So much information on Atlantis and so much familiarity. I wonder how many other people will feel the closeness to The Atlantean Legacy. More please, tell us more! When is the next book coming?

I found Atlantean Legacy written by Paula Bates difficult to put down once I began reading. Bates’ development of each character created a personal relationship between them and the reader. I found myself wrapped up in Akana’s life within the story and I found myself sharing the same emotions she felt. Bates skillfully developed a believable setting for Atlantis within her book. Through her energetic writing, I found myself living in this world. Bates’ thorough research of the mythical Atlantis aided her in developing the first book in a series which will be eagerly awaited by her readership.

After the fall of Atlantis, surviving Atlanteans make their way to Khem (ancient Egypt) and in the midst of an alien culture, re-establish their homeland and religious rituals. As they set about displaying to the natives the incontestable power of the Atlanteans, the pain, anguish, and deep despair generated by the loss of everything they ever knew drags them down into the mire of their shadow selves. Their lives seem to be spinning out of control, as they are propelled towards a riveting climax of the story begun in The Atlantean Legacy, a time before Atlantis had sunk beneath the ocean waves.
Purchase “Atlantean Echoes”
“Atlantean Echoes is a mystical love story entwined with ancient healing mysteries, passion, and despair. It explores the depths of abuse and the heights of forgiveness, and reminds us to surrender to our divine truths. This book is rich, raw and mysterious. Open to its wisdom!”

In her book, Atlantean Echoes, Ms. Bates weaves the many layers of spirituality with human emotions and needs flawlessly, and with illuminating honesty and compassion. The twists and turns of the story are grounded by these human needs, anchoring the reader firmly in the reality of the story. The complexity of it comes into play when the imperative needs of the gods intertwine with human lives. And all of this is played out in the dawn of Khem’s creation by the grace of the gods partnering with humankind. The shimmering beauty of the time and place is breathtakingly brought to life by the specific details of everyday life that evokes archetypal memories. The author’s vision of Atlantis’ seeding of its gift of human and god interaction into Khem, bringing us into our modern day via Egypt, is sheer genius: we all get the chance to integrate this splendid creation myth into our own individual spiritual lives. What a gift Ms. Bates has given us!
And fortunately for us Ms. Bates’ gifts as a writer are superb. She has crafted a beautiful, well written story that crackles with intensity, color and light. The dynamic of feelings morphing into action moves the story right along. You won’t want to put the book down. It is absolutely riveting!
As with “The Atlantean Legacy”, Paula Bates again delights her audience with a peek into a pre-Pharoanic Egypt with the provocative “Atlantean Echoes.” Here the Atlantean diaspora unfolds in wondrous detail drawing us into a lush world of magic and intrigue. Spellbound in the midst of a fascinating and royal court, I did not want to story to end and cannot wait for the next installation.
