Synopsis


Enter the legacy of the legend...
Brigitte has been chosen to renew the treaty between Atlantis and the ancient bloodline of Lemuria. As an emissary of nature, her betrothal would ensure the continued function of the Crystal Grid, the life source of the ten kingdoms of Atlantis. But as Brigitte prepares to leave from her home in the magical Dreamvale, her people are attacked by a storm of shadows. Now she is running for her life.

Upon her arrival in the ruling city of Atlantis, she meets D’Vinid, a dejected musician who lives the quintessential Atlantean lifestyle of revelry, escapism, and apathy. Under the eclipse of a sacred festival, they are swept into an attraction they cannot resist. Their union may protect humanity from its worst enemy - the shadows of Atlantis. But there is one problem, this man is not her betrothed.

Brigitte soon discovers that the corruption of the Grid could very well be the Grid itself. Citizens have neglected to attend the rituals required to charge the crystals with their psychic emanations. Some have fallen prey to an epidemic called “the madness”, caused by shadowy parasites that feed off human suffering. But as nature always strives toward balance, the crystals have activated a genetic upgrade among the people. The youth have begun to express supernatural powers. Could it be that D’Vinid and Brigitte are meant to be leaders among the awakened? And if so, why does it seem impossible for them to be together?


A mysterious tale of romance, seduction, and betrayal that reaches just enough into the modern mind to ask - will we learn the lessons of Atlantis?


Review

Shadow of Atlantis is a very unique and interesting take on the legend. I like reading it, the mythology is on point- well established and very interesting. Although writing is a bit dense at times and there is a lot of infodumps, I enjoy immersing myself into the world. My favorite part was the worldbuilding, its very intricate, the world portraited is vivid and very detailed, I felt like I was there when reading the story. 


It took me a bit of time to really get into a story, but after a while, I was fully hooked. :)

Happy reading,

Anie

  1. Thanks for the review! I had another version I published a long time ago, and talk about info dump! I have researched for 30 years about Atlantis, and this story is my way of showing my research, so it's been hard to chisel it down to not read like an encyclopedia. I'm glad you got into it eventually. It's an intense project! Book two is coming out late this spring :)
