"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. There were unfamiliar words but I found myself having no trouble forming the pictures in my head. Some of the names were hard to pronounce but it added to the novels' charm. 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.
