Where I received the book: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
Summary: I dreamed of an imaginary island lost in the middle of the sea. A legendary island where anything is possible, everything except telling him the truth. Black, my destiny is keeping me from revealing my true identity to you; I have to find the Emerald Tablet so we can finally be together. My dream is for enchanters and humans to live together in peace and harmony, or at least to avoid this war that is looming on the horizon. I’ll go to Atlantis with my team to uncover the first clue in our quest. I’m sure my friends will be able to help me accomplish this extraordinary mission! Atlantis! Can you believe it? Will you join me on my adventure?
in all honesty, atlantis wasn’t as good as the moonstone. it was good for sure. one thing i noticed in atlantis that didn’t wow me was the plot. it was a little flat and came off a bit boring in places. i didn’t feel as excited about the overall story as i had in the first book.
the characters definitely pulled the story along for me. i loved lou so much in atlantis. she’s come so far since the start of the moonstone. she’s so strong and brave now. all the characters have matured so much. (except black. he still acts like a grumpy hormonal teenage boy who can’t seem to control his dick, but at the same time i love him?????)
along the same lines, the romance became very annoying in this book. i quite liked it in the moonstone, but in atlantis it became nearly unbearable. black is as controlling and possessive as before. honestly, he needs to grow up. you wouldn’t think he was as old as he is. although, when lou found out that he’d had other sexual partners in the past, she was upset. like, you expect him to go 4,000 years or whatever and remain faithful? that’s asking a bit much.
the use of mythology was great. there were a couple of little hidden things which made reading quite fun and enjoyable.
