One man's quest to find the ultimate treasure and give it back to the world....


Egypt, 1938

A leading archaeologist vanishes while exploring a newly discovered chamber inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Mediterranean Sea, Present Day

Ex-U.S. Navy specialists Carter Hunt and Jayden Takada are working one of their first jobs in civilian life--repairing a subsea data cable for an international telecom company-- when their mini-sub is attacked by persons unknown wishing to stem the flow of information in and out of Egypt. They survive the encounter only to receive a call from Hunt’s ex-girlfriend, Dr. Madison Chambers, an archaeologist currently on an excavation at the Great Pyramid of Giza.

She has a most unusual request—she needs someone to scuba dive inside the pyramid. Hunt agrees to help, but soon finds out that the same people behind his close call on the data cable are also interested in what has been found in the pyramid.

Before long, Hunt and Takada find themselves on the run from a shadowy criminal enterprise that will stop at nothing to obtain artifacts that appear to lead to nothing less than the lost city of Atlantis.

A trail of clues looks like it will lead the accidental explorers to legendary riches of unfathomable worth, but will they be able to safeguard them from those who would do anything to control ancient secrets?


Ancient mysteries, global conspiracies, and nonstop thrills! Books like these are the reason I love action-adventure! Fans of Clive Cussler and James Rollins will find treasure within the pages of ATLANTIS GOLD!
~David Wood, author of the Dane Maddock Adventures


The perfect combination of great research and impossible to put down writing.
~Jeremy Robinson, international bestselling author of Apocalypse Machine and Project Nemesis

Chesler melds science and adventure with the brilliant command of the late Crichton.
~Douglas Corleone, author of Robert Ludlum's THE JANSON EQUATION
Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1)

Another good Chesler book. I enjoy his creature books the most I think, but I am actually pretty excited for this series going forward. It is obviously told in the tradition of the Clive Cussler books, which I also enjoy. For an indie author, I feel Chesler is top of the line. His novels rival Cussler's in storytelling. Who doesn't like to read about underground pyramids and the Lost City of Atlantis?

It also reminds me of the Dane Maddock series, which Chesler has contributed to, but I think I prefer these characters.

You've got your evil characters who are only after the money, then you've got the heroes who not only have to avoid being killed by the greedy villains (much like two factions in the Brendon Frasor Mummy film), but have to escape from life-or-death situations and discover the undiscoverable.. in this case: Atlantis.

The cover alone makes this tempting, but Chesler's penchant for top-notch adventure tales continues to impress. You won't find a better indie author out there right now.

Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) Well, I guess Rick Chesler can’t put gloriously hungry chompy things in every book. (Imagine my very sad face right here.)

In Atlantis Gold, Chesler takes a break from creature features to bring us one seriously pulse pounding adventure. It’s simply an adrenaline rush! With shades of James Rollins adventure novel, Chelser still makes the genre truly his own with characters you love and non-stop action that takes the reader around the world.

The archaeological mystery here is extremely well done. I was riveted. I so wanted all of this to be true! We also have a compelling villain – I want to know more about this person’s story!

This is the first in what promises to be a very exciting series and I’m fully on board for the ride.

Note: at the time I’m reviewing this, it’s available on KU, but totally worth buying outright.
Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) Meh. The author needs a better proof reader. I'm glad I didn't pay for this book. Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) What an excellent tale of adventure with some exciting new characters. This Rick Chesler story is a little different, as we don't encounter any epic sea creatures, but it certainly was an intense read. I loved the mystery in the story and can't wait to learn more about all of the characters we met! Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) Atlantis Gold by Rick Chesler is exciting and jam-packed with adventure as to ex-Navy men and an ex-girlfriend search for the lost city of Atlantis. The book is written in the vein of a Clive Cussler book with its many twists and turns, and thrills that will keep you turning pages.

Atlantis Gold is the genre I enjoy reading and this did not disappoint me. I'm looking forward to reading more of Chesler's books that are packed full of scientific research and exotic locations. A five-star read.
K.D. McNiven Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1)

Overall this was a worthwhile read. His dialogue writing leaves room for improvement and his set up for certain observations was too detailed so you knew what was often coming before he then stated the obvious. The many typos were also a distraction. The action is engaging, however, which is what I came for and things really start popping off around 2/3s of the way in. Sadly the ending was too rushed and created a meh feeling at the end.

I found the ending to be very flat. Why did nothing happen to Daedalus or his crew? I was hoping that when the trio made it back to Key West and get the Atlantean notoriety they would turn in Treasures Inc for blowing up part of the Bimini Road (especially without any permits), they'd at least tell others about the golden pyramid down there, or like my wife said, have D and Carter have a truce that D wouldn't have them killed in exchange for not turning the baddies into the authorities. Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) There are only a handful of books that I wasn't able to finish in the last 40+ years, and sadly this book is one of them. I really wanted to like it as this was in a genre I read a lot but I was only able to get a third of the way through. The mediocre writing and the lack of basic research of the real life locations and activities in this novel made it impossible for me to finish it. Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) Atlantis Gold - a review by Rosemary Kenny

LiDAR satellite imagery has made a great improvement to finding buried archeological sites and artefacts as we learn in Atlantis Gold, book 2 in Rick Chesler's Omega Files Adventure series.
MC Madison is an authorised archeologist on a dig in Egypt, when she locates a collapsed chamber (by using LiDAR), in the Great Pyramid. It's been flooded by a trigger trap, activated by an ancient tomb robber. Being a brave and intrepid woman, she promptly scuba dives into the depths and recovers an object hidden between fallen rocks, with the help of trusted friends she has to summon to get her out - their trophy is a bronze alloy head, that when examined reveals a formerly unseen kind of crystal formation. What could it be - and where will Rebecca and Carter go next? What happens to Madison after their return to her camp?

The non-stop action, discovery, betrayal and deadly danger, leading to ultimate triumph and a fabulous finale will set your heart racing and keep you on the edge of your seat...don't wait - grab yourself a copy today and tell all your friends! Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) When archeologist Dr. Maddie Chambers finds a chamber filled with water underneath the Great Pyramid in Egypt she calls her friend ex-Navy Seal Carter Hunt to dive down and investigate. After he and his buddy Jayden Takada bring up an unusual bronze head their camp is attacked by professional artifact thieves, they’re barely able to hide the head from them but Dr. Chambers is taken instead.

I always love to read stories that are connected to Atlantis in some way and this one was interesting. Some of the info at the beginning made me feel like there should be a previous book. The clues were different, but a little too vague. They made a lot of lucky guesses and action.

Footnote: 1) It’s funny. The book I read previous to this was about a computer expert who had discovered LiDAR and designed a mapping program using it. Yet this book was written first and they already have been using it for a while.

2) They are planning to pay him with Paypal but hadn’t even gotten his name until the end?

Fave scenes: Hunt & Jayden checking out the break in the underwater cable, descriptions of the Atlantis Resort, the ancient airlock and landing in the ‘glider’.
Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1) Not impressed

Professional scuba divers getting excited, making dumb decisions, and running out of air....twice! Scuba diving to extreme depth and having lots of time. Also not impressed with the archeological procedures. BTW, the Bimini road has been satisfactorily explained as a natural occurrence. Atlantis Gold (Omega Files Adventures #1)
