The Atlantis Gene: A Thriller (The Origin Mystery,&hellip by A.G. Riddle
I so wanted to like this book, and to an extent I did.

I finished it whilst on holiday but it was one of those books where I just couldn't wait to get it finished to get it over and done with.

That said, I still enjoyed the book, and am still surprised that I am enjoying the series considering that this is not a genre I read, and was bought as part of going outside my reading comfort zone.

I'll still buy the next in the series as I am invested in it now.

The characters are great, the series story is good so this is definitely a series to buy if you want something a little different from the vampire, werewolf, zombie fiction, but it will… Read more
