Product Description

Product Description

Read the novel that started it all: The Atlantis Gene is the first book in A.G. Riddle's bestselling Origin Mystery trilogy (currently being translated into sixteen languages and in development to be a major motion picture).
_____________________________________________________

THE GREATEST MYSTERY OF ALL TIME...
THE HISTORY OF HUMAN ORIGINS...
WILL BE REVEALED.

_____________________________________________________

70,000 years ago, the human race almost went extinct.
We survived, but no one knows how.
Until now.
The countdown to the next stage of human evolution is about to begin, and humanity might not survive this time.
_____________________________________________________ 

The Immari are good at keeping secrets. For 2,000 years, they've hidden the truth about human evolution. They've also searched for an ancient enemy--a threat that could wipe out the human race. Now the search is over.

Off the coast of Antarctica, a research vessel discovers a mysterious structure buried deep in an iceberg. It has been there for thousands of years, and something is guarding it. As the Immari rush to execute their plan, a brilliant geneticist makes a discovery that could change everything.

Dr. Kate Warner moved to Jakarta, Indonesia to escape her past. She hasn't recovered from what happened to her, but she has made an incredible breakthrough: a cure for autism. Or so she thinks. What she has found is far more dangerous--for her and the entire human race. Her work could be the key to the next stage of human evolution. In the hands of the Immari, it would mean the end of humanity as we know it.

Agent David Vale has spent ten years trying to stop the Immari. Now he's out of time. His informant is dead. His organization has been infiltrated. His enemy is hunting him. But when David receives a coded message related to the Immari attack, he risks everything to save the one person that can help him solve it: Dr. Kate Warner.

Together, Kate and David must race to unravel a global conspiracy and learn the truth about the Atlantis Gene... and human origins. Their journey takes them to the far corners of the globe and into the secrets of their pasts. The Immari are close on their heels and will stop at nothing to obtain Kate's research and force the next stage of human evolution--even if it means killing 99.9% of the world's population. David and Kate can stop them... if they can trust each other. And stay alive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Atlantis Gene 24 July 2013
By M.A.C.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book quite difficult to read. The constant switching between chapters rather fragmented the story but I persevered!
Eventually, after several chapters, the story started to unfold and some semblance of the story emerged. It is a novel concept and takes the reader on a journey to various parts of the world,most of which are real. I liked the idea of time distortion but the story got confusing towards the end and I lost the plot completely with regard to the main characters and their role.
Please don't be put off by my review, I enjoy a good science fiction cum thriller but for me,this one fell down on its continuity, hence the three stars.
M.Clements. England.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good first novel 30 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I admit to having this book for a few months before really getting into it. I read the first few chapters which didn't excite me and started reading other stuff. I started reading it again and then just had to finish it. If you like action, good goodies, caricature baddies, time portals and have a an ability to suspend credulity, then give it a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner 9 Jun 2013
By Sue C
Format:Kindle Edition
Couldn't put this down once I'd started. The story has huge scope and imagination and I can't wait for the next installment. I found it listed under sci-fi, but it's also a fast-paced thriller, with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. Great plot and characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review: The Atlantis Gene by A.G. Riddle 2 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
In the post Dan Brown DaVinci Code world, there’s a big market for conspiracy theory thrillers. I’ve read many of them – perfect holiday fodder. Fast paced, exciting, they’re ideal when you just want to be swept along for a grand adventure without having to think too hard about it. The Atlantis Gene satisfies all the needs of this corner of the market, while boasting some neat sci-fi concepts.

The plot is suitably convoluted and with enough ‘dun dun dun’ moments that I would have been turning pages rapidly, had I not been listening to the audiobook version. The trick with stories like this is to blend enough plausibility amongst the fantastical so that the reader isn’t thrown into the ‘This is stupid’ realm of suspension of disbelief. Riddle managed to keep me walking the tightrope of ‘is this for real, or is he just making it up?’ long enough that when Nazis in a submarine buried under the ice for several decades came up, I was totally prepared to roll with it.

Kate and David were likeable characters, too – a good dose of chemistry between them, and enough vulnerability to keep them human. Even Field Agent David wasn’t a superhuman machine repelling bullets, which I liked a lot – too many heroes in these sorts of stories magically dodge so many disasters it gets a bit laughable

I’ll admit, there were some sections that I probably would have been itching to skip over, had I not been listening to the audiobook version. There’s a section in the middle where Kate spends several chapters reading someone else’s journal.

3.0 out of 5 stars To a point 30 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This started off in a pacy, fast manner but then quickly became confusing flitting about all over the place for no reason other than to confuse the reader. The characters and story were thin - Dr Warner would be in therapy for years after what she has endured! & her accomplice has had more cliched escapes than James Bond could ever imagine. After a while i gave up wondering what the Immari corp was up to and I know there's a sequal so the heroes escape. I could not enagage with the story or develop and interest in the characters they are so shallow, and quickly lost interest & then hit the delete button.
