As the second installment in The Origin Mystery Series, The Atlantis Plague continues the story A.G. Riddle began in The Atlantis Gene. Geneticist Dr. Kate Warner is humanity's last hope for survival. The hoped-for cure for the Atlantis Plague, Orchid, has failed. Those who survive are either evolved, lacking emotions but with increased intelligence and physical strength, or devolved, vegetative and weakened intellectually and physically. This sidekick traces the two major themes, history repeating itself and people as machines lacking humanity, through the sometimes convoluted plot of The Atlantis Plague.
The Immari are invading Europe, martial law is in force, and a billion people have died from the plague in the last 24 hours. Kate is blamed for a pandemic and must battle powerful pharmaceutical corporations and an alien culture while saving her own life, as well as those of her father and the man she loves. This sidekick of The Atlantis Plague explores the dynamic interaction of these characters as the reader constantly watches struggles, deaths, resurrections, and sexual encounters through all 98 chapters. The Atlantis Plague will not disappoint Riddle fans, and it will appeal to any reader who enjoys plenty of action and a quickly moving plot.
