Humanity's last stand—at the end of the world
Antarctica: Humanity barely the Atlantis Plague. Now Dorian Sloane and Ares are ready to finish the job.

Their only hope lies in a mysterious signal from space and secrets long buried.
About the Author
A.G. Riddle spent ten years starting internet companies before retiring to pursue his true passion: writing fiction.
His debut novel, The Atlantis Gene, is the first book in The Origin Mystery, the trilogy that has sold over two million copies in the US, has been translated into 18 languages, and is in development to be a major motion picture.
His recently released fourth novel, Departure, follows the survivors of a flight that takes off in the present and crash-lands in a changed world. HarperCollins published Departure in hardcover in the fall of 2015, and 20th Century Fox is developing the novel for a feature film.
Riddle grew up in a small town in North Carolina (Boiling Springs) and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. During his sophomore year of college, he started his first company with a childhood friend. He currently lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife, who endures his various idiosyncrasies in return for being the first to read his new novels. They welcomed their first child, a daughter, on September 2, 2016.

This entire story in book three is seemingly likened to civil war stories between the Atlantians and all other alien and human life forces. It got real boring REAL quick. Where book 2 was disappointing, book 3 was barely tolerable. If you've read book one and book two, you'll remember that in book one the alien space ships had suspension/stasis tubes that healed and kept the inhabitants in suspension for hundreds to thousands of years and they awoke at the same age, just different times...in book 2, the tubes became resurrection/cloning tubes with varying outcomes for the inhabitants from multiple cloning of dead people/aliens to people exiting the tubes with just the memories of other dead aliens...in this book the memories are killing their hosts so our main characters traverse the galaxies via ancient spaceships, portals and worm holes. Too laughable to even comprehend...this goes on and on and ON... Interestingly enough, the humans in the group seem to have no adverse effects from space travel...no need for oxygen or any special protective equipment...they just pass from one spaceship, planet or space station through an alien portal and enter another. No harm, no foul.
Oh, and in case you're wondering...Kate's presumed dead infant that she discovers is alive in book one, is never mentioned in book two...is once again mentioned in this book...briefly at the very end! No effort to find her own infant but a lot of effort to find missing memories of the alien whose partial memories were "cloned" into her. Seriously...
Human civilization is still reeling from the massive flood unleashed by Ares and is not much of a factor in the story.
Throughout the book, Dorian Sloane (the embodiment of Ares) is chasing Kate Warner (the embodiment of Isis) and David Vale to kill them. At each stage in the pursuit, we learn more about the Atlanteans and the enemy that destroyed them. A new faction, the Exiles, also appears.
While it's nice to have all the mysteries resolved and all the pieces of the puzzle revealed, most of the book is pretty much just a replay of the Atlantean memories of Ares and Isis. Sure, there's the ongoing chase between Dorian and Kate/David to add a bit of tension, and there's the climax where Ares' plan against the Serpentines comes to fruition, but in my opinion it isn't really that good of a book. Obviously you have to read it to get closure on the series, but... bleah.
