Far out.. no really, way too far out there

By the time I started this third book in the trilogy, I was already lost. each book had gotten more and more complicated, and what annoyed me the most, was that this book wasn't really even about earth, or humans at all, if I had known, I probably wouldn't have started the series at all. and with each chapter, the author added more and more point of views, more and more pieces to an already unfinished and confusi

The Atlantis World is the climactic finale of The Origin Trilogy. In his debut books, A.G. Riddle created a fresh, diverse and complex story tying together multiple fields of science and history that would make the head spin on a conspiracy theorist. The Atlantis Gene introduced our protagonists, Dr. Kate Warner and MacGyver wannabee David Vale, as they fought an unseen organization while running for their lives. Together, they and their allies raced for a cure to The Atlantis Plague, a global ...more

SPOILER ALERT ***Last of the trilogy. Still a lot of action and some funny scenes, but the scale is too large. At one point he writes of billions of ships... Really? Billions? And Dorian kills Ares with a single punch, repeatedly... Does that really happen, especially since throughout the series Dorian never mentions his special ninja skills. It felt like there was a sprint to the finish and that it was rushed. But still it's an easy read. ...more

Holy. Moly.

This was it. The ending of all endings. Yet also, a beginning. So dramatic was the ending that I literally read it in about 3 hours. I could not wait to find out what the overall end game was going to be. Kate and David, Dorian and Ares. What great characters A.G. Riddle created. I was able to hate, yet have overwhelming compassion for both Dorian and Ares and yet still want the ending to be in Kate and David's favor. They deserved it. And I LOVED Milo. He was the light in the dark ti

Thank god I finally finished this series. All I can say at this point is that it really showed little improvement to me. Again just like in the first two books it kept repeating "brain wiring" and I swear every time I saw it I wanted to rip my hair out. About halfway into the first book I was irritated with it. By the second book I pretty much had a scowl on my face the entire read. This book was thankfully a quick read but provided no relief. I hated it about as much as the other two. My only i ...more

The fact that this series is so highly rated makes me sad for humanity. The first book was okay. The second blah. But this one...this one sucked the very joy out of my soul. If I can do anything to be remembered as being of any worth to the rest of mankind, it would be if my review could prevent at least one of you from wasting your precious seconds reading these books. If just one of you continues your life unscathed by the words of a writer who has never heard the phrase "show don't tell", the ...more

This book was not good. I slogged through it and if it was not the third book in the series, I would have pitched it. I read the first book, Atlantis Gene and it was OK, but the second and third book went downhill. The storyline became muddled and confusing. Almost like a mix of stories going back and forth. I thought the climax was building into a good versus evil battle, but that fizzled into a bland ending. Some Star Trek fans of Star Trek Voyager claim this story is copied from an episode of ...more

This series has something for everyone.

I especially liked the technology. I don't think the author wrote about anything that is not possible if we survive the challenges to our civilization at this time. His characters were real, his many faceted plots were good. He kept my interest through the entire series. Most also important to me the author is honorable. He did not gain interest in a free book and increase prices on the follow-up. books in the series. Thank you.
Excellent end to the trilogy

this was a great ending to the trilogy that tied everything up on a grand scale. if you have read the first book, you owe it to yourself to complete the set. you won't be disappointed.

This book concludes a wild and crazy series that was by no means bad, but not exactly something I'm going to reread. When I started, I thought it was going to be a Clive Cussler-y story about Atlantis. Instead, it was a science fiction space opera. It still had to do with Atlantis, but not in any way I saw coming. Book three takes things fully into outer space. A lot of the book takes place in flashback memories, finally giving some context to what did not make much sense in book two (and which ...more
Alright, so this is the final book in the trilogy. Up until now, the books have been focused on good humans vs. bad humans, both influenced by an alien race. In the beginning of this installment, the author does a good job of making you question who the good guys really are. This whole time we've been led to believe that David and Kate are the good guys because their motives are purer, but are they really doing the wrong thing for the right reasons? Likewise, Dorian and the bad guys might be doi ...more

3 words- A May Zing!!!

I wanted to read the trilogy before writing the review. A. G. Riddle is an inventive, creative author. From the first book, "Atlantis Gene", I was hooked. But as with most series, I was certain the story would lose steam. It never did! I hope this series gets a movie deal. What a great movie this would make, in fact, I want my son to read it,(he is a filmmaker) !

I recommend that this series is a must read to anyone who likes science fiction, futuristic drama, or a really g

A perfect end to an amazing journey

The last book in the Atlantis gene trilogy exceeded all my expectations. A.G. Riddle does not fail to give adventure and thrilling excitement to the conclusion of this story. I was pleased with the ending and thoroughly enjoyed this book.

The Atlantis World continues the story line of Dr. Kate Warner and David Vale as they try to unravel the missing memories of the fallen Atlanteans. As you journey with Kate and her enemy Dorian Sloane through both time and spac
There were so many plot twists and turns in this final book that my head was spinning. It was hard to keep up with all the characters and science and general story. So while the trilogy in general was good, I think A. G. Riddle has come a long way in his writing.

Good ending to the trilogy

This story had lots of twists and turns to get the whole truth out. It was not as readable as the first two but still satisfying.

The final book of the trilogy and a lot of mystery as to where the story would go and the start is a MAJOR bummer! Honestly it took the excitement for myself out of the story for a while, luckily you will get past it and back into what was good about the rest of the series. The same weakness I found in the first two books are here again, weak dialog, some generic tropes and ideas. To Riddle's credit, there is one sci-fi element that I absolutely love and I'm not sure if the influence is from som ...more

In the final book of the series, The Atlantis World attempts to explore the popular myth of the origins of the human race. With powerful enemies from earth, pursuing Kate and David, they may have to seek help from unearthly allies.

Yes, at times, I had a bit of trouble suspending my disbelief, but fortunately, it did not take away any enjoyment I got from the story. I was still able to care about the process of the story, its delivery and its conclusion.

Like its predecessors, The Atlantis World w

A real page-turner, this one. It kept good pace and a few of the characters, the main ones, are familiar through the series. There is a lot of tension and suspense and the story keeps momentum. There were a couple of minor characters that drifted off towards the end, almost like they had been forgotten, but on the whole, a gripping read.

Too much of a good thing.

This book was harder to read than the first two. I found myself skimming the pages instead of reading every word. I just wanted it over.

Not the best in the trilogy

While the first 2 books were clear and concise, the book was jumping around all over the place. Half the time, I didn't know who the author was talking about. Then the author got to the aliens. All I could think was: Why?! The 1st 2 books were really good though.

It was ok.
Dorian & Ares scenes were boring, including the history lesson even though it is vital to the present situation.
Only when Kate & her team were space hoping and the Exiles came to their rescue were the good parts.

It was ok. I totally didn't like Dorian and Ares scenes. Also the history lesson even though it was vital to the present situation.
Only liked Paul & Kate scenes when they were with the others & figuring things out, especially at the end when the Exiles came to their rescue.
