My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was intrigued by this series because I am a fan of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series. This seemed to have a similar feel and did not disappoint. I really loved the inclusion of Atlantis, as it is one of my favourite mythologies. The way the author created such a unique history for Atlantis and then seamlessly brought it into our present conflict was wonderful. I was riveted from the start and count not wait to read the rest of the series.

The characters are not well developed at the beginning, but throughout the course of the novel you gain more insight and knowledge about their personalities. The four main characters are each unique and allow for the reader to more likely identify with someone.

The world building is wonderful and I wish there was a novella or even faux-history book that the readers could delve into to allow the author to fully immerse them in the rich history of Atlantis.

Overall, a definite recommendation for any readers that like middle grade, YA, mythology, history, adventure or just good books.
