A decent Dan Brown-esque holiday read. The plot gets convoluted at times, the series ticks just about every major cliche in existence, and in many respects it is questionably written. The romance angles in particular are like something out of a teenage romance novel and the dialogue at times is just awful. I struggled to believe the development of the main relationship just because it happened so quickly and was handled so clunkily, with both parties acting like lusty teenagers despite being in the middle of a war. The main alien enemies in the book are not explored deeply enough, with them really only emerging in the latter half of the last book so we never really identify with them as a huge threat.
The story does jump around a lot between geographies and characters, so if that tends to bother you bear it in mind (any Game of Thrones fan should be desensitized to that!).
Like so many other books these days, these novels make me question this current obsession with trilogies. It seems to me that the author decided he wanted a trilogy and then wrote his story to fit that structure, with not enough substance to justify it. The story sags at times, particularly the first half of book 2, and it could no doubt have been trimmed to make it a much more gripping story.
SMALL SPOILER ALERT HERE...
Similarly, I actually felt at the end that the author had short-changed me as a reader. I was expecting revelations and theories on the actual origin of the human race. But we don't get that, we only get a story on how the human race evolved from early stage, but not where it came from in the first place. This would have been a much more interesting and challenging angle.Read more ›
Story: Sci-fi based, complex and compelling.
Characters: Interesting and well developed .
Writing style: Well written, easy to read. It flowed well.
If you're a Stars Wars fan then this would appeal.
I throughly enjoyed reading the Atlantis series from the historical facts that were intermingled with fiction to the futuristic space wars.
Spelling wise it is pretty good, there is the occasional error - eg "it honed in on her" rather than homed in, but not so many that its annoying.
What I really liked is that author managed to keep it to 3 books, so many series these days just go on and on, artificially padded out seemingly just to get more money from book sales.
Mr Riddle has another book coming shortly which I will definitely look out for after the quality of this series.
I continued to read in the hope of an improvement but unfortunately time could have been better spent. This book has had good ratings but for me the style in which the author 'saves the day' as events unfold or characters are going to die but the near-impossible happens makes the trilogy forced in its story-telling and breaks the bubble of the world he is trying to create in your mind.
This trilogy in the end was not for me.
