Atlantis: Rise of the Nile by David Speight is the last of the trilogy of the Atlantis series. The story that begins in Atlantis: Bearer of Fruit and Atlantis: Fall of the Gods concludes impressively in this book. Aedon is an illegitimate prince. Aedon finds himself being the one who should locate the magic scroll after the ruling Lord of Atlantis falls sick. The place to get the map itself is a big mystery as it is in uncharted territory. Aedon has to get there before the Uprooter and many others to save the land. Aedon's journey is filled with adventure and excitement and he faces mermaids, pythons, and unicorns on this journey to get the scroll.

This adventurous science fiction story is very exciting with a lot of twists and turns and there is a sense of mysticism and richness that will keep readers enthralled. The historical and biblical references, along with the whimsical creatures, make the story very entertaining. All the characters have important roles in the story as the plot progresses and they have been portrayed well by the author to give good support to Aedon's character.

The story is a blend of reality and fantasy, and old and new. The verses add to the lyrical quality and it is a good diversion as the story develops. It is an excellent piece of writing that will keep readers riveted.
