THRILLER REVIEW: The Atlantis Gene - A G Riddle

Release Date: 29/04/15
Publisher:  Head of Zeus


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.


Whilst I do love to spend time with a good thriller, there are times when you find yourself wondering what the hell happened and sadly left wondering how the book managed to get published. For me, this is one of those books as to be honest with you, I felt that this book was a little bit too predictable, had way to many coincidences within and when added to a huge amount of conspiracy theory alongside Aliens, huge cover ups and of course the obligatory Nazi’s.

All round, it felt convoluted, badly written and all round was a book that I really had to dig deep to finish, so much so that I wish that I could get the time I spent on this book back.
