Publisher's Summary

A PANDEMIC 70,000 YEARS IN THE MAKING WILL CHANGE HUMANITY...FOREVER.
In Marbella, Spain, Dr. Kate Warner awakens to a horrifying reality: the human race stands on the brink of extinction. A pandemic unlike any before it has swept the globe. Nearly a billion people are dead--and those the Atlantis Plague doesn't kill, it transforms at the genetic level. A few rapidly evolve. The remainder devolve.
As the world slips into chaos, radical solutions emerge. Industrialized nations offer a miracle drug, Orchid, which they mass produce and distribute to refugee camps around the world. But Orchid is merely a way to buy time. It treats the symptoms of the plague but never actually cures the disease.
Immari International offers a different approach: do nothing. Let the plague run its course. The Immari envision a world populated by the genetically superior survivors--a new human race, ready to fulfill its destiny.
With control of the world population hanging in the balance, the Orchid Alliance and the Immari descend into open warfare. Now humanity's last hope is to find a cure, and Kate alone holds the key to unraveling the mystery surrounding the Atlantis Plague. The answer may lie in understanding pivotal events in human history--events when the human genome mysteriously changed. Kate's journey takes her across the barren wastelands of Europe and northern Africa, but it's her research into the past that takes her where she never expected to go. She soon discovers that the history of human evolution is not what it seems--and setting it right may require a sacrifice she never imagined.

Poor research by the author

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Neutral on this, the story arc is good but! The author simply has not researched Europe, Racoons in Spain! Really and there are so many inaccuracies is distracts from the story.


Would you ever listen to anything by A. G. Riddle again?

Probably not


What about Stephen Bel Davies’s performance did you like?

Adiquate, again the actor has made no effort to get even a UK English let alone local pronounciation of place names. For example the Maltese are taught exclusively in English from primary education onward. There is no reason for any accuracy.

Heavy going but worth it in the end

Would you listen to The Atlantis Plague again? Why?

It took me a long time to get through this needing to read a few other books in between as it can get very drawn out in the middle not seeming to go anywhere just round in circles but at about 3/4 through the story picks up and comes to a conclusion


What did you like best about this story?

Its the second book in the trilogy and moved the story along


Which character – as performed by Stephen Bel Davies – was your favourite?

Al the characters were good and consitant


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No


Any additional comments?

the book is part of a trilogy this is just and excuse for procrastinator I am sure the whole story could have been condensed a bit and I will think twice before downloading the third episode.
