Story so far
The story is an interesting mixture of action, adventure and suspense. Lara Croft is a reckless wanderer but she’s the daughter of a millionaire. Her father Richard has a large estate and a partnership in a big firm. His partner Ana Miller contacts Lara Croft and persuades Lara to give up the reckless life to own the legacy of her father. Lara Croft unwillingly accepts her father’s office keys and sets on an adventure to an unknown island.
Lara Croft sets for an island in search of the research of his father. Richard found the mysterious queen of Yamatai, Himiko. The lady is called goddess of life and death as she could kill anyone by barely touching people. Himika is buried alive in an island. Lara Croft reaches that island in search of his father. He finds Richard on the island and the father-daughter duo unearths Himiko from her grave.
Himiko is suffering from a rare disease that spreads with such a high speed that infected persons die within a short time of coming into contact with the disease. The myth of Himiko is busted but there is the danger of the disease spreading. Richard decides to blow the tomb with a bomb after getting infected with the disease. Lara Croft also tries suicide with his father but was saved. But it isn’t the end of the story as the real suspense about Lara’s adventure is yet to unfold.
