Shades of Atlantis

Shades of Atlantis 

by Carol Oates 

Since the death of their parents, Triona Pryor and her brother, Ben, have lived with their aunt and uncle in Camden, Maine. Now in her senior year of high school, Triona loves her family and friends, but she has always felt that she didn't quite fit in...in Camden, or anywhere else.

Enter Caleb Wallace, the devilishly handsome man who has recently moved to Triona's small town. While their attraction to each other is instantaneous, it also proves to be dangerous...and deadly.

When tragedy strikes, Triona flees to London for solace and to start her life anew. It's there she discovers from an unlikely source that her family has been keeping secrets from her - secrets about not only her birthright, but her ultimate destiny as well. Armed with this knowledge, Triona finds herself thrown into a whole new world and into a battle to save the lives of everyone she loves.

(My Thoughts)     5  STARS!!!!!
Once I sat down to read Shades of Atlantis, I couldn’t put it down. Triona’s character at the beginning honestly frustrated me. I was screaming: OPEN YOUR MOUTH GIRL; say what you need to say. But if a book didn't get you worked up, it wouldn't be good. I'm glad to say by the end, Triona had grown into strong and powerful women. And Caleb had me loving him from the start. He's handsome, strong, knows what he wants, and he wants Triona. He sacrificed everything for her. There was one character I couldn’t understand why was in the story, John. My heart just breaks for him. This poor guy does not come out well in this book and he is such a great guy. (Sad). Ben, I really liked. He's laid back like most teen boys, and then in another scene he’s tough and got it together. This story is beautiful, amazing, and strong. Everybody has secrets except Triona and Ben who had to discover who they were and the power that came with that discovery. Shades of Atlantis is defiantly a must read.
