    Description

    A global cataclysm beyond imagination...a mysterious signal from space...and one last hope to save the human race: The Atlantis World.

    As the clock ticks down to humanity's extinction, a team of scientists will risk it all to unravel the secrets of the past.

    Northern Morocco: Dr. Kate Warner cured a global pandemic, and she thought she could cure herself. She was wrong. And she was wrong about the scope of the Atlantis conspiracy. Humanity faces a new threat, an enemy beyond imagination. With her own time running out and the utter collapse of human civilization looming, a new hope arrives: a coded message from a potential ally.

    Arecibo Observatory: Mary Caldwell has spent her life waiting, watching the stars, looking for signs of intelligent life beyond our world. When that day comes, Mary finds herself in the middle of a struggle older than the human race, with far greater stakes. She must decide who to trust, because there's nowhere to hide.

    Antarctica: In the wake of the Atlantis Plague, Dorian Sloane finds himself a puppet to Ares' mysterious agenda. As Dorian prepares to take control of the situation, Ares unleashes a cataclysm that changes everything. As the catastrophe circles the globe, Ares reveals the true nature of the threat to humanity, and Dorian agrees to one last mission: find and kill David Vale and Kate Warner. There will be no prisoners this time. The orders are seek and destroy, and Dorian has been promised that his own answers and salvation lie on the other side.

    With Dorian in pursuit, Kate, David, and their team race through the ruins of the Atlantean ship left on Earth, across Atlantean science stations throughout the galaxy, and into the past of a mysterious culture whose secrets could save humanity in its darkest hour. With their own lives on the line and time slipping away, Kate, David and Dorian are put to the ultimate test.

    Great conclusion to the trilogy

    In the Atlantis World, everything finally comes to a conclusion. The alien threat is revealed, and humanity is at the brink of destruction.

    I reviewed the previous two books, and while enjoying them, I didn't think they were super great. But this book was a welcome departure from the first two. The beginning is still a bit slow with boring stuff on Earth, but eventually the book delves fully into the history of the Atlanteans, who the great enemies are, and what the plan was from Ares, Kate, and Janus. It finally delves deeply into science fiction with space battles, ships, advanced races, and more. I even felt myself understanding and rooting for Ares and Dorian part of the time.

    It was still a bit slow at times (mostly in the beginning parts) and a few characters were somewhat useless and unnecessary (Paul Brenner's "girlfriend").

    Overall this was a really enjoyable ride and has a definite page-turner quality. Well worth the read (or listen).

    For the audiobook, the narrator did a fine job and I didn't recognize any misses or problems.

    NOTE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Too much for a satisfying conclusion

    The Atlantis World is the 3rd (and hopefully last installment) for Riddle's Atlantis series. Most of the action takes place off world as characters hop from portal to portal piecing together the alien backstory. David and Kate attempt to recover Kate's latent memories conveniently dispersed to distant portal locations. Dorian is hot on their trail. What transpires is mostly a series of memory dumps by Kate and Dorian at each portal that provides the alien background info for how they came to be on Earth with divergent agendas. Added to the mix are two other sets of remnants of different alien civilizations (the sentinels and the serpentine armada). Dorian gradually arrives at the realization that Aryes has been using him and simply kills him over and over again with little purpose, while David and Kate unknowingly employ the Independence Day strategy to defeat whatever turns out to their ultimate enemy.

    The sci-fi elements are mostly alien civilizations that are never fully detailed or fleshed out. Why an advanced, intelligent race would need to freeze and thaw someone for decision making every couple of hundred years never made sense. The alien uprising / revolution was also poorly presented (after thousands of years, this society could not effectively deal with this issue?). Finally, most unsatisfying is that much of the tale breaks a cardinal rule of story telling in that the multiple memory dumps merely tell the backstory instead of showing the action.

    The narration is passable and renders as good a job as possible with a weak storyline.

    This post-apocalyptic trilogy is complete!!

    The novels in this series are slow moving which leads me to boredom. All three novels are pretty good and have great narration. With so many 4 and 5 star novels of this genre available, I cannot recommend this series.

    Just Awful. Zero stars.

    The plot is nonsensical and ridiculously convoluted. The narration is terrible. There is not a single character that you really care about. Avoid this like the plague.

    Hurried ending

    A hurried and unsatisfactory ending to a mediocre series. Left a bad taste in my mouth.

    A so-so conclusion

    I'm so torn about this series. Despite the fairly poor writing, consistent science fiction cliches and blatant references to existing series, the overall plot kept me going through all three books. The ending of the series felt rushed, with a lot of major twists happening all at once. Introducing the intergalactic war in the last few chapters along with the major revelations that resolve many preexisting questions from the previous books gets to be somewhat overwhelming. All in all, a decent ending to the trilogy.

    For the audio version: same problems that the other two books in the trilogy had: Bel Davies has such annoying tendencies when he reads. I had to listen at 1.25x speed to get him to sound at all normal.

    I just wanted it to end...

    I listened to books one and two, which I enjoyed but this seems to go off on a tangent. I'm glad it's over. and I can delete it from my device.

    Too much of the same

    By the time I read this third book in the series I already knew it was the same store over and over; a few different couples in the same places over and over. It was too hard to separate the places and worlds. Just too confusing but simple.

    Self-Publication is Not Always a Good Idea

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The author needs to be less in love with every word he writes.

    Any additional comments?

    The whole series would greatly benefit from the services of a good editor.

    I'm glad I slogged through the second book

    The third is the best of the three. The background history of Atlantis and the shadowy motives of the characters in the first two books are revealed. Well done.

    It was good, but the second one was better

    The second book was better, this one was more about the history and much less about their adventures it felt for me.
    the speaker again was very good.
