The Atlantis Plague: A Thriller (The Origin Mystery, Book 2)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The Atlantis Plague is the second book in The Origin Mystery, the blockbuster trilogy that has sold a million copies in the US, is being translated into eighteen languages, and is in development to be a major motion picture.
A PANDEMIC 70,000 YEARS IN THE MAKING...
WILL CHANGE HUMANITY...
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 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.
"The human race must remain as one. All other roads lead to ruin."

"Evolution is inevitable. Only fools fight fate."

THE ATLANTIS PLAGUE is a story of human survival and perseverance in the face of extinction. This global adventure takes readers back into the world of The Origin Mystery, which began with A.G. Riddle's debut sci-fi thriller, THE ATLANTIS GENE. THE ATLANTIS PLAGUE delivers the same kind of little-known science and history readers applauded in THE ATLANTIS GENE and deepens the core mystery many can't stop talking about. The series is currently in development at CBS Films to be a major motion picture.

for nearly three months now.” Experts speculate that the Immari are simply nibbling at the fringes of Europe—that by taking a province the Allies can’t defend, they’re testing the Allied resolve and the will of the people. In essence, the Immari are taking the pulse of Europe. Dr. Marcus elaborated on this point: “This is War Strategy 101: the aggressor takes a small step across the line, then waits for the result. Does he get appeasement or retribution? Our reaction determines his next move.

Then it came to an abrupt halt and its air brakes squeaked loudly. The rumbling engine died a few seconds later. A wave of panic seemed to sweep the trailer’s inhabitants. They were all on their feet and rushing the door a split second before it opened. The light from the setting sun revealed the scene beyond.

Was there anything they could do in that amount of time? “Get the group on the line,” Paul said. It was time to throw a Hail Mary pass. CHAPTER 31 David Vale had tried the doors and control panel more times than he could count. He had even gone and stood in the tube, hoping it might activate an escape route. The room hadn’t changed since he had awoken. He could
in Britain and around the world speak English—a Germanic language—is because of the plague… and the Angle and Saxon triumph after. It wasn’t just Britain, this happened around the world: advanced civilizations, with cities and population density and established trade routes, fell. The barbarians beyond their gates rose, invaded, and most of the time, just moved on. In cases where the barbarian invaders set up their own government, they were usually sacked a century later by the next roving band

She wore an environmental suit. The sky above her was dark, ash-filled. At first she thought it was night, but she saw a dim sun directly overhead, struggling to break through the ash that blanketed the clouds. Impossible, Kate thought. This is the Toba Catastrophe, seventy thousand years ago. A voice echoed in
