The Atlantis Gene
Books | Fiction / Science Fiction / General
THE BATTLE TO SAVE HUMANITY HAS BEGUN. Off the coast of Antarctica, a research vessel discovers a mysterious structure buried deep within an iceberg. Entombed for thousands of years, it can't possibly be man-made. But a secretive and ruthless cabal think they know what it is... and what it means. The Immari have spent millennia preparing for the return of humanity's ancient enemy. Faced with an extinction-level threat, they believe mankind's only chance of survival will mean sacrificing 99.9% of the planet's population. It's a price the Immari are prepared to pay. Geneticist Kate Warner and intelligence agent David Vale may have a chance to avert the looming catastrophe, but only if they can decode the secrets of the Atlantis Gene and unlock the truth about humanity's origins.

"Intricately woven mind candy for those that love a complex plot with lots of action! This book is a really good read. There are multiple things going on that at first I couldn't imagine how they would all come together, but they do. Those who stopped in the middle because of complexity completely missed out. Cool surprises I didn't see coming! I didn't care for the romance part, but it does not take away from the story or get intolerable. The suspense kept me turning pages. It ends on a cliff hanger and I can't wait to start the next book! I marked the pace as steady, but the last half the pace is fast."
"Bleh, no short synopsis this time. I really wanted to like this book, but the ‘thriller’ bits definitely outweighed the ‘sf’ bits, to the point where I got tired of reading about spies and started skimming forward. Maybe book 2 would be more my thing, but I’m not convinced that I want to buy the second book on such a thin liking for the first book. The writing was also very uneven, and at least at the beginning, would have done well to have been edited significantly. <br/>"
"Awesome trilogy, definitely one of my top 5 favorite "
"This book was written in 2013 but the parallels to current pandemic are a bit startling , some of his writing is based on the origin of humans which is fascinating and true. Where the book branches into fiction off of our history is very creative and sometime quite dark with reflections into our current societies . I enjoyed this book and would recommend to anyone who likes this science fiction. "
