You’ll never see me unless I want you to…
I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid.
Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…

Get ready for the exciting follow up to Atlantis Rising, dubbedAn enchanting debut from a promising new author of paranormal YAby Kirkus Reviews.
After all they’d cost me, I thought I was done with the Truss clan. I was wrong. Nikki Dawning, my mortal enemy, has beenkidnapped, and I’ve been asked to spy on the Truss to find her. The pull between Ian and I has never been stronger, but he can’t help me this time. I have to rely on Theron, a bad-tempered cousin I didn’t know I had. To make matters worse, the people I trust have been keeping secrets.
I’m starting to feel like a weapon in a war I don’t understand. How far am I willing to go to protect the descendants of Atlantis and the common good when I’m not sure what the common good is anymore?
Only one thing is certain. If I’m the next Laurel clan chief, I can’t let myself be manipulated…by anyone.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)
I really enjoyed Atlantis Rising and gave it four stars. I was looking forward to catching up with Alison, Ian and co, and seeing where Gloria Craw would take her characters this time. Not only do we meet up with old favourites, but we are introduced to new ones too. As well as going on an adventure, with excitement and suspense woven in, but we also see Allison grow into herself, as she both finds out and gets told about who she is.
Two characters I loved, that I'm sure will be reader favourites, are Theron and Phoebe. Both of these characters help Allison in various ways, sometimes by just being there for her and understanding her thoughts. I loved both of them and I hope to see more of them in the future.
As far as the rest of the story goes, it was a thrilling ride that was both heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. There is still so much for Allison (and the reader) to figure out and learn, but I for one am completely looking forward to that!
With no editing or grammatical errors that I found, this is a smooth-paced fantasy/action/romance/adventure story that I would have no hesitation in recommending.
* I received this book from YA Reads in return for a fair and honest review. *

Read below for an excerpt from Atlantis Quest:
I stopped talking because Ian had stepped in front of me and slid his hand behind my neck. I knew what he was going to do. I also knew I should turn away, but I didn’t. I let him move closer, I didn’t look away when his eyes lingered on my lips, and I didn’t tell him to stop when his lips touched mine. Instead, I moved even nearer until there was no space between us. I reached up and ran my fingers through the golden-blond hair that curled up at his shirt collar.
