I really enjoyed reading this book! At first, I thought this was going to be about mermaids or something but it turned out to be more amazing than that! I loved the concept, it's very refreshing. Perfect to start the year with this one.
I loved the characters. I could definitely relate with Alison, an ordinary teenager I'd say. She's a bit introverted but I love how badass she can get. I also loved that even if she was adopted, she acknowledges her foster family. Her relationship with her foster family was really adorable. Ian was kind of hard to describe when it comes to his physical appearance. He's blond but I can't imagine him as blond. When I think of him, a dark-haired boy always comes into my mind. I think he's pretty hot though. I loved his character as well. He's a bit cocky but in an adorable way and it doesn't lead to you making faces or rolling your eyes. He's really kind and funny. Brandy is definitely my favorite character. I just hands down love her. So yeah, I'm a bit emotionally attached to her. *cries*
The ending fell a bit short for me though. I felt like it was a bit abrupt. Like, the climax was building all throughout the book and I was pretty much looking forward to the ending and I was on edge but then towards the end of the book, it seemed like things went too fast. Still, I enjoyed it.
The concept of the Atlantis is a bit foreign to me. All I know about Atlantis is that it's a lost island at the bottom of the ocean. I haven't seen the animated movie yet, was it from Disney? I'll probably check it out. So yeah, foreign concept... which made me check out this book. I'm really glad I did because I like it so much! I definitely enjoyed reading it and I wanted more!!! Okay, I tweeted Gloria Craw earlier and asked her if there's going to be a sequel and she said yes!
I love the simple narration because it's so direct and on-point. No dilly-dallies. I definitely recommend this one!
