Atlantis: Rise of the Nile   Readers Favorite 5 Star Review

Aedon is the prince and a character that I can relate to. I love a good sci-fi story and when you cross that bit of fantasy with some fantastic history, it is a book that is guaranteed to hook me into it. While I admit I came into this book without reading the other two first, I am going to go back and read them so I can read this again as well. The book is able to stand alone and be understandable - there are some references and a little of the back-story but that did not stop my enjoyment of the book at all. You can tell that David Speight put a lot of work and thought into the world he has created, and the creatures and the stories all flow together beautifully. The writing is descriptive and enjoyable without being too long-winded. You really get a sense that you could walk into this land and help with the challenges it faces. I would recommend this one to any fantasy reader.

David Speight has skillfully combined existing legends and biblical accounts of the destruction of the earth and its subsequent rebirth with fictional elements of the Atlantis myth in Atlantis: Rise of the Nile. There are many references to the way things may have been 10,000 years ago and possible explanations for why they are the way they are today. The basic human traits of love, dedication, greed, and deceit are demonstrated in this description of the age-old struggle between the powers of good and evil and the difficulty every individual faces when confronted with significant choices. Can one person make a difference when it seems that all hope is lost?

  "A good book for young adults and older kids, especially if they like futuristic tales"
-Debra Gaynor, Readers Favorite

"Atlantis: Fall of the Gods" is the second installment of David Speight's Atlantis trilogy. It tells the story of man's flaws paving the way to Atlantis' probable demise. It follows Aedon in his quest and personal battles, as well as Faeraud in his own realizations. This book also exploits man's beliefs clashing with man's own faith in the supernatural.

The words in this book flow like magic. They are perfectly orchestrated to elicit responses from the reader appropriate for each scene. ... The characters were wonderful, easily relatable and molded to perfection. I also love how the animals were given unique characteristics. The dialogue was clever, humorous, and perfectly tailored to each character. It was never cheesy nor was it overly dramatic. I like how it is a mix of old and new, fantasy at the same time reality. Author David Speight's writing made me feel like there was another world hidden in the pages of this book and I stumbled upon it. I can't wait for the next installment in the series.
