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…

 my 5 PAW review is here

Book Title: Atlantis Quest (Atlantis Rising, #2)
Author: Gloria Craw
Release Date: Mar. 1, 2016
Genre: YA Fantasy

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.

My Review for Book 2

I was such a huge fan of the first book and now after this one, I'm hooked! I loved so much about this sequel, including seeing Ian of course. I am still very heartbroken over Brandy but seeing Ian open up to Alison was great. And I loved our new characters, Theron and Phoebe. Alison is still learning more about who and what she is when another threat relating to the evil Sebastien comes back. Spencer and Katherine, the clan leaders and Ian's parents, ask Alison to go undercover for them. Nikki is still missing and they may have found her but on not so friendly territory. Somehow, they convince Alison's parents to let her go to a ski resort. This is where Theron first comes in. Alison is staying with him. While at first I thought he was a jerk, I warmed up to him and began to like him. Then in the end, I loved him. He's my new bff lumberjack as Alison calls him. And then we meet phoebe who Alison is supposed to befriend so she can spy on the inner workings of the Truss clan. These were Sebastian's people, so she doesn't know who she can trust. And when she finds things, she is in for a lot of shock. When all is said and done, there's some heart break and some betrayals and some great new friendships. It's definitely a whirlwind ride!! 

Alison is finally growing to accept that she is not only human any longer. She shouldn't have to give up her humanity to be an Clan member. They all expect that of her. It's a big struggle for her but I think by the end she is figuring some things out. I loved her character growth. I loved seeing her finally work on something with Ian. I am also terribly disappointed in Katherine and Spencer. I expected more. And I now hope that Alison holds up to her standards from this point forward. 

We are also learning more about the Plots and plans Sebastian and his crew had. We get to see some of the inner workings and I must say, the bad Guys are blowing my mind. Wow! I know it will be a year before the next book comes out and I'm dying to get my hands on it. I want to know how Alison is going to handle all these new things she has learned. I can't wait to see Alison and her crew again!! 5 PAWS!!!

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.
