The Atlantis Plague by A.G. Riddle is the second book of a trilogy where we learn that the evolution of mankind is nothing but an experiment and the manipulation of our genetics for someone else’s purpose.
How’s that for happy?
In this second chapter of “The Origin Mystery” series, author A.G. Riddle cranks up the story with what feels like an improved and solid writing style, making this second chapter a whirlwind of fun.
I’m not saying that the first chapter, The Atlantis Gene, was terrible. Not by a long shot. In fact it was an easy read that tugged at the threads of human history while tossing in secret factions of humanity locked in a battle for the survival of the human species as we know it.
As the first chapter ended on a cliffhanger of sorts, Plague picks up the pieces of the story and moves the plot along at a brisk and intelligent pace.
Riddle took what reviews and inputs he received from fans and whole-heartedly applied them because the writing style of Plague was different enough to catch you off guard from the style of the first book. It was a new and improved version of the writer.
The first part of this trilogy has a few surprises and twists but once those cats are out of the bag, it is all story and moving it forward through this second chapter.
Again, a great read if you like humanity facing its own demise, while tackling historical facets that add credence to the story.
And if, by the end of the story, you are curious about the events that Riddle talks about, he’s included a link in the back of the book to his website that compares his fictional events to the referenced actual events. A facts versus fiction reference that is sure to entertain the curious of mind.
If you enjoyed the Atlantis Gene, there is no doubt in my mind you will truly enjoy The Atlantis Plague, a race against time and evil, in the hopes of staving off what could be an inevitable demise of humanity.
