And if so, could the giver of such power have been from an even more powerful race than our own? Riddle's The Origin Mystery series tackles these questions quite cleverly. Set in the present, the first two books, The Atlantis Gene and The Atlantis Plague, take the "Great Leap Forward as an extraterrestrial gift" concept and run with it, literally, through an amazing story of plot twists and turns.
David Vale, a former CIA agent turned private mercenary finds himself in the position of protecting scientist Dr. Kate Warner from her own family and employers, while the world suffers from a plague worse than the Spanish Flu and the Black Death combined.
These books are intense page turners filled with action. I often found myself virtually winded, wondering when things would slow down and the poor couple might have a moment of peace!
The science in these novels revolves around DNA and genetic manipulation as well as brain wiring and consciousness. Riddle has done a very good job of being as accurate as possible, while adding in his own imagination to fill in the holes in his own unique way. Is it possible that the "junk" DNA holds the keys to the mystery of why some genes display, or get turned on, and others stay unactivated, lying dormant for a lifetime? Riddle uses these questions to create a very plausible, yet sometimes complicated, story about genetics and the role it plays in human evolution.
That pushed his numbers through the roof and earned him many reviews and some well-deserved success. Riddle is an author to watch. The story of The Atlantis Gene is one of those far-fetched science thrillers with time travel and aliens I think and other stretches of the imagination that I enjoy immensely.
The story is complex in a good way, the writing is tight and easy to read, the concept is out there. The human family tree is at the core of this story and he does a masterful job of educating you with background like Toba Catastrophe Theory and its effects on human evolution.
The main characters are likable enough and the bad guys, while as confusing as all get out, are definitely evil. The surprises are muted but sensible when encountered and there are no gotchas where the author pulls a plot twist out of thin air. There was one odd diversion in the story. In bed. Wanting relief from a long day. View all 3 comments. Aug 06, Montzalee Wittmann rated it liked it. Riddle is a very interesting read.
I got the audible version from the library. It had so many side stories going and I thought sure it would finally come together at the end but it did to some degree but the rest will be in the next books.
I was hoping that more of the story would be in this book about what the secret would be about. I might continue the next books but I was a bit disappoint that this didn't have more. This was very action packed, full of intrigue but the stuff I was interested in will probably be in later books. It hinted at it briefly in here. So, I did enjoy it and it is worth the read just wanted it to stretch some of the good stuff in more of this book.
No, no, no. Don't be misled by four thousand five star reviews on site. Don't read this book unless The Atlantis Gene takes about a hundred plot bits - everything from Indiana Jones-type evil Nazis to and Roswell to James Bond spies cross and double crosses, plus the Biblical Flood, Atlantis, eugenics, an Ebola-like flu, an No, no, no.
The Atlantis Gene takes about a hundred plot bits - everything from Indiana Jones-type evil Nazis to and Roswell to James Bond spies cross and double crosses, plus the Biblical Flood, Atlantis, eugenics, an Ebola-like flu, ancient alien influences and a Tibetan monastery Holy Shangri-La, Batman! There's also tapestry depicting humanity's future, black goo that cures everything, autism research, people who age way slower than the rest of us, and a diary that holds secrets.
But wait, there's more! Just too, too much more. What isn't evident is an editor. On page 66 "She Somebody get these people a comb! You'll also find some expendable good guy who solves the first major puzzle, transfers a couple millions dollars as instructed, creates his own secret message AND destroys the computer with evidence - all in time to be fatally shot.
This is followed by a lovely description of how he looks down at the bullet holes in his chest and the blood flowing from his mouth. Then Our Hero, after going all Rambo on a gang of warrior bad guys, snaps the last one's neck and then stays on the floor gazing at the ceiling and considers two flies chasing each other. Me, I'd go crack open a Bud. Here are incredible moments of foresight. Guess what.
About two minutes later a certified bad guy will grab her and put a bag over her head. The book is long, but the chapters are short and they get shorter, down to a couple paragraphs, toward the end.
I enjoy science fiction and will gladly surrender my disbelief if an author creates a world worth the effort. In this one the hero super-agent David has several million in secret accounts, a secret hideaway with a bomb shelter, a secret mini yacht, and a stashed secret plane which he and the intrepid blond scientist who requires repeated rescuing fly into China, crash land, and gain access to a super-secret installation where hapless Chinese are being murdered daily in dozens by dastardly evil doers.

Thus, I did not finish it and after only 50 pages decided to put it down. So I will not offer any serious critique other than a rationale as to why I did not connect with it.
If you find this annoying, i agree with you, yet as my least favorite saying goes: Honestly, I felt rushed and did not fully understand the landscape of the many different settings the author takes us to in such a brief number of pages. Other than a setting which is listed next to the chapter number, there was inadequate language offered to create a meaningful visual of where the characters are in space and time.
We are instead ushered quite quickly to conversations between characters of different organizations which aim to reveal much too quickly the plot of this book.
Which I have to say is intriguing. But the devil is in the details, which most authors seem to err on the side of too much and readers get bogged down in a hundred page description of some weapon Clancy comes to mind here. Conversely, this book offers too little in the way of details to help us the reader give a shit about what's actually happening. Apologies, but I'll move on to something worth my time. This was not it. The first word that came to mind after finishing this novel was "Ambitious".
Perhaps a bit too amibitious. There were many sub-plots requiring a set of characters or at least name changes for the characters. There were interesting people the boy in the monastery who were brought in, seemed pleasant, and then forgotten.
Then there was the main trunk of the story line And we see all these tubes with Atlanteans, but we fail to have any description of what they look like. There was way too much going on. The Immari themselves were not believable from an economic point of view. Worthless in And thrown in? It was really too much.
I gave this novel a 4-star rating, primarily because the editing and storytelling was in concise, clear, grammatically correct prose. Thank you for that. And also because it was a first novel. Had this been an established writer, it probably would have earned 3 stars. May 21, Jody rated it really liked it Shelves: Full review now up! All of the ingredients used to make up The Atlantis Gene story worked really well for my tastes.
While I do enjoy reading in the thriller genre, it's not one that I visit a lot. Riddle has convinced me I need to start clearing my calendar a little more often for this genre. The basis of this story is one that peaked my interest, even before reading the synopsis of the book. The origin of humanity.
Where did we come from? How did we evolve to how we are today? These are qu Full review now up! These are questions all of us have asked ourselves from time to time.
Riddle's take on this subject is done with a very clever mix of secret societies, medical research, and ancient civilizations. The pace of this story is pretty quick throughout. By quick, I mean a lot of the chapters are 2 to 3 pages then switching back to another POV. There is well over chapters in the book, and the book is under pages, so you can do the math. There is a section regarding a diary that did drag out a little, but that was the only slow section. It is a vital part of the story, so drag may not be the appropriate word.
Just slower than the other sections of the story. The characters were well developed and realistic. They each had flaws and made their fair share of mistakes. To be honest, I was more invested in the story than the characters, so for me this was a mix between character and plot driven. I believe I just approached it differently due to the subject it involved. But, you may see it differently than I do. I had high hopes for The Atlantis Gene , and it didn't let me down.
I can see why it is a million copy bestseller. I believe all readers can find something in this book they can relate to. I certainly did! May 31, Nick T. Borrelli rated it liked it. Definitely not the level of techno-thriller as say a Lincoln Child, James Rollins, or Michael Crichton but okay for what it is.
The book was interesting enough to keep me reading but ultimately failed to satisfy me as a book by one of the others who I mentioned.
I think it was due to the fact that the chapters we're so short and the action seemed to jump around from one storyline to the next much too quickly. I never got a chance to become invested in any of the characters or what was going on w Definitely not the level of techno-thriller as say a Lincoln Child, James Rollins, or Michael Crichton but okay for what it is.
I never got a chance to become invested in any of the characters or what was going on with them. Not special enough in my opinion to warrant continuing with the series. The Origin Mystery trilogy is four stars or near to it.
The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. I read all three books before writing the reviews, and I gave the first book in the series, The Atlantis Gene four stars. There is something for everyone in this trilogy. Le Guin getting together to spin a yarn.
The trilogy has its flaws, so I'd qualify the recommendation by stating it's for readers of the science fiction and The Origin Mystery trilogy is four stars or near to it. The trilogy has its flaws, so I'd qualify the recommendation by stating it's for readers of the science fiction and thriller genres. This is the debut novel of an indie author, but it was good enough to be downloadd by CBS Films and for the author to be picked up by HarperCollins for his next novel.
I was very entertained by non-stop action, conspiracies, factions, and conundrums throughout the book. There are terrorists, secret agents, geneticists and double agents. I thought The Atlantis Gene was a medical thriller at first. Then it was an espionage novel. Then historical fiction, or is it a medical disaster story, or a political thriller. Wait an alien artifact! Is it a science fiction novel? This is a complex story. Although we are primarily concerned with Dr Kate Warner and agent David Vale, there are lots of characters, lots of factions, and lots of settings, perhaps too many.
The story moves so quickly, there isn't enough time for character development, a problem that will come back to haunt the author and reader in later parts of the trilogy. The protagonists are trying to untie a Gordian knot of intrigue and secrets that goes back hundreds, possibly thousands of years. It may actually answer "where did man come from," and "what is the meaning of life. Riddle ties together seeming disparate science and historical facts to theories woven into the storyline.
He does it with such ease, despite anachronistic and plausibility flaws, the story becomes that much more believable. If you love complex plots, non-stop action, tangled conspiracies, and long stories, this trilogy is for you. This first book is a thrill-ride, but it sets the stage for even bigger things to come. If you are looking for something simple and straightforward, you aren't going to enjoy this trilogy with its complex cast of characters and stories within stories.
Truth is stranger than fiction The author's website for the facts versus the fiction for the history and science used in The Atlantis Gene Really simple, plot incomprehensible Really simple, plot incomprehensible Thankfully I didnt pay a cent for this, but I did waste my monthlly site Prime freebie loaner book for the month on it.
This book is poorly done on every level. It's poorly written, it stereotypes Indonesians, Chinese I made it to 25 percent, but knew after a couple chapters that I was wasting my time. I have no earthly idea how so many have given 5 stars Really simple, plot incomprehensible Really simple, plot incomprehensible Thankfully I didnt pay a cent for this, but I did waste my monthlly site Prime freebie loaner book for the month on it.
I have no earthly idea how so many have given 5 stars to this drivel. My advice when checking out a book is to read the one and two star reviews. They typically give a more reasoned review. Tolkein, Asimov Books like this??? A few years ago they'd never have made it if not self published View 1 comment.
I borrowed this book for free using the Kindle Lending Library. While I gave this book 1 star, I think this author has potential. The overall concept was ok, but the work just felt unpolished. The sci-fi aspects were well explained, and the plot was fast paced, but the dialogue was cringe worthy.
I think in an effort to explain the science but keep the pace moving the author sacrificed character development.
My main problem with the book is I couldn't care less what happened to any of the people I borrowed this book for free using the Kindle Lending Library. My main problem with the book is I couldn't care less what happened to any of the people.
Author A. Riddle inaugural novel starts out pretty fast.
Make that somewhat insanely fast. He throws things at the reader in rapid succession. But stick with it and pay attention. Comprehension will dawn.
The characters begin to make sense and A. Every little plot twist gets attention. All the elements he packs into the beginning of the mystery will make sense. The grand scheme begins to make a little too much sense, making me wonder if there isn't some kind of Immari or Author A.
The grand scheme begins to make a little too much sense, making me wonder if there isn't some kind of Immari organization manipulating everything from international politics to economic markets. Hero David Vale is a badass. But he's an unlucky badass, always getting thumped somehow. The baddies, especially Dorian Sloane, is intense and a remarkable opponent.
He's smart and seemingly has the upper hand at every turn.
Kate Warner isn't some wallflower either. She doesn't just scream when the going gets tough. It took me a week to read this, and I had to put it down occasionally because I just couldn't take the pace.
And I love this type of novel. If you're looking for a thriller with a bit of sci-fi angle, this is definitely worth considering. Sep 27, Timothy Miyahara rated it really liked it Shelves: I always hate to criticize an indie author's first published work. I know some of what it's like to put yourself out there for the public to notice and critique, and it's not an easy thing to do.
So, first, kudos to the author for finishing and publishing. The concept behind this story is intriguing. While I think he's going off a bad idea of the Atlantis myth, he at least goes all in with it. And the science behind things, to my non-studied brain, seemed plausible and I didn't find myself rollin I always hate to criticize an indie author's first published work.
