This is a superb conclusion to an excellent Sci-Fi thriller/trilogy ... especially for those readers who are open-minded enough to consider that an advance civilization did exist according to historical records. The first book in the trilogy is as expertly constructed as any David Speight thriller you will ever read. Great characters, action, a fresh perspective of our human history, drama, plots & subplots. While the second book served an important purpose in carrying through on the main themes. This final book is outstanding from the first page to the last. Speight is a great historian/writer/researcher. Check this book out! Highly recommend.
I found the narrative sophomoric and absurd. I would have expected this level of writing at a Middle School level, not as adult Sci-Fi. The dialog is ridiculous, with speech tags abused on every page. The characters don't "say" anything: instead they huff, snarl, grin, deride, and yelp. The book is also badly in need of editing.
But what annoyed me the most, and led me to stop reading by Chapter Three, was the "language" created by the author. The reader is instructed to refer to the glossary at the back of the book for translations of such Atlantean terms as looking scopes, personal telescopes to see far away objects, and scrollette, a small short scroll with few pages. Really? If an author feels the need to create an alternate language to tell a story, he/she had better consult a linguist to ensure that it's unique and believable.
Although some people seem to have enjoyed this book and its two predecessors, I had trouble slogging through the few chapters I read. It was a relief to put it aside and move on to more adult fare.
I loved the spin this trilogy put on the mythical Atlantis. It brings out mystical, historical and even biblical characters. Add in the advanced technology this Atlantis has and the well developed characters and you have a series worth reading. I wish that there could have been more books, as I will miss Aedon and his adventures. All good things must come to an end I suppose.
Highly recommend the entire series. You can tell the author really took the time to polish each book to a shine. Even including maps and a *dictionary* that contains all of the weird Atlantis words that we aren't familiar with.
I have read David Speight's Fall of the Gods and I was hooked and wanted to get a chance to get started on the next one.
When you get immersed into Atlantis, it becomes a part of you in a sense. Every great civilisation has a great flood or a disaster or epic proportions. We cannot deny the existence of other advanced civilisations but furthermore we have to realise our full potential and discover that we are capable of greatness.
The journey of Aedon is just amazing and David has managed to develop an exceptional storyline based on big kernels of truth, both from history and science.
I truly enjoyed this book.
