About the author:
David Speight is a screenwriter and author. His Atlantis Novel series is based on a screenplay he wrote years ago. The author draws heavily on his own life's experience in creating the inner struggles of his main character Aedon.
David grew up in a family where his father and two uncles were ministers. His mother was a private school teacher and principal. Later in life he found himself addicted to friends who hung out in crooked places and like Aedon, struggled in choosing between them and what was right. His own toil in balancing observation with faith is captured in the characters he creates. His books appeal equally to Christians or non-Christians."
Influences of his favorite movies and books include 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,' 'Narnia,' 'Lord of the Rings,' 'Harry Potter,' 'The Great Gatsby,' 'Star Wars,' 'Raiders of the Lost Ark,' 'The Ten Commandments,' and 'Schindler's List.'
Atlantis: Fall of the Gods
"Atlantis: Fall of the Gods" is an adventure unfolding in a unique civilization. This is the second book in the series.
Nearly every culture in the world has a "flood" story and this one is filled with symbolic characters that represent many. The adventure will take you on a journey filled with excitement, mysticism and historical references of Atlantis.
Aedon is an illegitimate prince in a land where flying transporters are powered with orichalcum, animals talk, and Asterians from Earth's second moon frequently visit. When the Asterians and his father are in danger of elimination, Aedon must make some hard choices between helping them or following his friends enticements.
The words in this book flow like the magical globeaky Aedon wears for protection - and when he takes it off, danger lurks from secret places. His desire for acceptance, a couple talking masks, and some misguided friends lead him down the wrong river. The fate of the Asterians rest in Aedon's choice between following the evidence his friends display or believing in the signs he's seen.
