Welcome to Atlantis 2.0. Bigger, better, and more exciting.
From the first chapter of this novel I was hooked & intrigued. I was drawn in both by the author’s fantastic storytelling as well as her extremely captivating world. Her writing kept me enwrapped. I was entranced and couldn’t look away, needing to see what comes next. Scrieva was informative, building this fantastical underwater world, while remaining captivating and entertaining. As a reader I could visualise each aspect of every world visited and felt myself really falling further and further into the pages.
By the end of the novel I felt like I’d known Scrieva’s characters for many lifetimes. Her character development was so real and personal that the characters were developed as friends not just as individuals within the covers of a book. Their reactions and interactions were also so real that I couldn’t help but feel for them. Passions run high amongst the characters, adding to the intensity of the novel as a whole.
As a whole this was a brilliant series introduction that set up the world perfectly while entertaining readers and leaving them wanting more. I’m definitely going to be reading more by this talented (and Canadian) author and would recommend this to others without the slightest hesitation.
