-The series has been criticised by the AH community for being occassionally ​a bit too parallelistic for its own good (a British colony created in Atlantis rebels in the 18th century and forms a vague United States analogue, there'​s a smaller-scale American Civil War analogue in the 19th century, etc.). However, it has also received a degree of praise for the better thought-out non-parallelistic aspects of its AH worldbuilding (the fauna and flora of Atlantis evolve in isolation and under evolutionary mechanisms similar to those of [[offtopic:​New Zealand]], the geographic names and settlement of Atlantis is different to OTL and the colonising countries are often different too, including settlers descended from Basque fishermen, etc.).+The series has been criticised by the AH community for being occasionally ​a bit too parallelistic for its own good (a British colony created in Atlantis rebels in the 18th century and forms a vague United States analogue, there'​s a smaller-scale American Civil War analogue in the 19th century, etc.).
