Atlantis Rising by Gloria Craw is the first book in the Atlantis Rising Series that was published on November 24, 2014 by Entangled Publishing, LLC. SYNOPSIS: 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…
About the author: I grew up in the desert southwest, inspired everyday by the wide skies and rich colors around me. I attended the University of Utah where I majored and got a degree in anthropology. These days, I live in the burbs just outside of Seattle, Washington. I’m married and have four daughters. When I’m not running them to volleyball or swimming, I’m reading, writing or fangirling over some TV show.
My thoughts: I first want to say that I wanted to read this book after seeing so many reviews about this series and the author. Now I will admit that I do love paranormal novels but was a little unsure about the sea creatures (mermaids). I feel like this is not the kind of book that I would feel the need to purchase on my own. Now with that being said, I was really surprised with how much I enjoyed this book. The main character, Alison is very intriguing and magical. Craw creates a unique twist on the usual paranormal novels with this series. I was really impressed and plan on reading the rest of this series. **I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
