ON A REVIEW SITE:
This book is definitely a home run. I was hooked right from the beginning.
I have been sick for the past week and even though my eyes were watering and burning and I had a massive headache I found myself trying to read this book.
Totally worth the pain!
Ahleah is a young girl who is just beginning to learn about her unique and powerful gifts. Before she has a chance to learn much of anything, the people her Elders always warned her about capture her.
She is taken to an auction block to be sold to the highest bidder. Lucky for her a smart and powerful Atlantean buys her: Lord Heracles.
He begins to suspect that she is very special and may be the key to saving his beloved Atlantis.
Poor Ahleah doesn’t know what to think or who to trust. Lord Heracles son is the only one who she feels she can talk to, but she still isn’t sure if she can trust him.
This book was very well written. Any young adult would love it, but it is also a great read for any adult!
Many YA books are a little hard to get through because of the dialogue between the characters. It usually doesn’t bother me, but I can see how some people would rather not read it.
This book has all the things a young adult would love without the annoying kiddish dialogue.
The world was also built wonderfully. There was the perfect amount of information shared without being overly wordy.
To sum it up, I can’t wait to finish getting better so I can start in on the next book of the series!
Stolen from her homeland, Ahleah is taken to the auction block in Atlantis where she’s bought by the powerful and clever Lord Heracles, who suspects her secret ability to control nature. With the discovery of her astonishing talents comes the unwanted attention of the evil high priest, Melasaris. Alone and frightened, Ahleah turns to the master’s son for help but never knows who to trust, the master holding her captive, or the son who holds her heart. Both expect her to save Atlantis from approaching disaster.
