Product description

Product Description

From the author of THE ORIGIN MYSTERY – the trilogy with ONE MILLION COPIES SOLD. En route from London to New York, Flight 305 suddenly loses power and crash-lands in the English countryside, plunging a group of strangers into a mysterious adventure that will have repercussions for all of humankind.

Struggling to stay alive, the survivors soon realize that the world they’ve crashed in is very different from the one they left. But where are they? Why are they here? And how will they get back home?

Five passengers seem to hold clues about what’s really going on: writer Harper Lane, venture capitalist Nick Stone, German genetic researcher Sabrina Shröeder, computer scientist Yul Tan, and Grayson Shaw, the son of a billionaire philanthropist.

As more facts about the crash emerge, it becomes clear that some in this group know more than they’re letting on – answers that will lead Harper and Nick to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving their own lives. As they begin to piece together the truth, they discover they have the power to change the future and the past – to save our world . . . or end it.

Departure by A.G. Riddle
This was a very interesting book, that I really enjoyed, although I was a bit let down by the end.
It follows Harper Lane and Nick Stone, who begin their tale after a plane crash, and are then set on a fairly amazing story as a result.
As events unfold you are drawn deeper into very well written characters and events, and whilst you are thoroughly engaged by this book, when you get to the end, I was left a bit disappointed.
The descriptions of the characters, events, the science involved are all very detailed and very well told, I will definitely be looking at the Authors other works given how well this is written, all I can hope is that they end better.
Overall its still a pretty good book, and the writing is excellent.

This is not an expensive read; and nor should it be,. The tale is of high technology linked conversations with dolphins, submarines myteriously translocated across the ocean deeps, catastrophies involving massive ice shifts in the Antarctic, and deeply disturbed security chiefs at the core of government. The linkage of all this mayhem is an attempt at subversive transfers of Earth's water to an alien planet peopled by an advanced probably benign civilisation. It is all a bit too much but may well lend itself to a television mini-series as each episode terminates with an exiting climax. The characters are somewhat plastic and not to be too extensively analysed. The 'aliens' are humanoid so will not stretch the make-up department.,
It should be read as a light hearted and exiting novella not to be taken too seriously.

I had to think about 2 star versus 3 star. I gave it three stars because the science fiction is woven around some very serious scientific thinking about what may lie hidden behind the boundaries of our current understanding of particle physics and astronomy. If you marvel at the mystery of Relativity implying that you can travel out into space at great velocity and return younger than your children, this story reveals how such a weird reality can lead to mind-boggling happenings. With a small grain of salt this makes interesting reading and makes one wonder what the future could be like if we manage to eventually tap into the strangeness within Quantum Physics.

A good hard-to-put down sci-fi novel about human nature, development and time travel. A time warp downs a plane and key people on board find their counterparts organized it to prevent a disaster that kills most on Earth. Looses it toward the end.

Thoroughly good read. Read whole book in a day, just couldn't put it down. Well done another great storyline and again something different from A G Riddle. When is the next book being released. It's a long time between fixes!

A thought provoking roller-coaster of a book that I would highly recommend to any sci-fi fan. Departure has a riveting story, told at a cracking pace, with fantastic writing and interesting concepts. The characters are a bit weak and you will get a bit lost in all the techno babble, but that's all forgiveable. Loved it from start to finish!

This was my first from the Kindle lending library and I was not disappointed.
Even without being science fiction this would still have been an engrossing tale. Initially there is a plane crash with all the excitement involved with this, it slowly dawns that there is going to be no rescue and the survivors are on their own.
At this point the story changes track as the try and understand what has happened. Often science fiction relies too much on gadgets and gimmicks with no real story, with this one once you accept that time travel could be possible the rests of the story all holds together with a very tight plot.
Even the minor characters are well portrayed and I wanted to know what was going to happen to each of them.
In the end everything comes to a conclusion rather than leaving loads of loose ends.
If you like science fiction this is well worth a read.

Enjoyed this so much. I liked the way it was written giving the two main characters their perspective of events and thoughts. I became so involved I really didn't want to put it down and was hungry for more of the same when I finished so much so that I went and bought the Atlantis series. Well done.
