Description

It’s one thing to Qualify…

But do you have what it takes to Compete?

With Earth about to be destroyed by an extinction level asteroid, teenage nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl Gwen Lark, and a few of her friends and loved ones, barely Qualified for rescue onboard one of the thousands of ark-ships headed to the ancient colony planet Atlantis.

Now faced with a year-long journey in space, life in a wondrously alien environment, and many tough life choices, Gwen must decide who or what she will become. Fleet Cadet or Civilian? Friend or lover? Average or extraordinary?

Can she make new friends? Can she trust the old ones, such as Logan Sangre, her sexy high school crush and an Earth special operative?

Time and time again, Gwen’s uncanny ability to come up with the best answer in a crisis saves her life and others. And now, her unique Logos voice makes her an extremely valuable commodity to the Atlanteans—so much so that her enigmatic commanding officer Aeson Kassiopei, who is also the Imperial Prince of Atlantis, has taken an increasingly personal interest in her.

Before the end of the journey, Gwen must convince him that she has what it takes to compete in the deadly Games of the Atlantis Grail.

It’s becoming apparent—the life of her family and all of Earth depends on it.

COMPETE is the second book in The Atlantis Grail series.

    As I said on book #1’s review, this story is so good. The characters all have their own depth. The love story that the reader can see happening but the characters can’t realize. I’ve cried, I’ve laughed out loud, and I’ve held my breath with stress hoping Gwen finds another solution to whatever problem she has deal with next. I can’t wait to see what happens is book #3
  • AMAZING!

    By far one of the best books I have ever read. It sends you on a wild ride. Definitely a page turner. I read the first book in 2 days and the second in a day and half.
  • Weak Characters

    Romance is an important part of many book series, and this one is no different. But most books are able to incorporate it somewhat seamlessly, or just focus entirely on it. But when you take a sequel to a book with a strong protagonist and turn them into a pathetic one that swaps between performing incredible feats of ingenuity and some one that drools over half the male characters in the book in some sick love pentagon it doesn’t make any sense. Inconsistent characters, mediocre story, and way too much time describing conspicuous bulges, it was really a let down from the incredible start of the series.

    I was hooked hooked hooked! Can’t wait to read the next book! The author does a great job of going into detail about the main character, Gwen, emotions’ and how she handles tough situations she is put through. I like that we are constantly looking forward to the next big event to happen and informed about what is happening each step of the way. Super cool futuristic ideas that make Atlantis so very unique. A must read!!!

    This book has pulled me in from start to finish. The emotions of the main character had me feeling them as if I was her instead. If you enjoyed the first book, this one is a must-have read. You will for sure enjoy it from beginning to end.
  • Even better than the first one

    Ingenious action and unexpectedly cool competitions. You can feel your own muscles ache at the training of the Candidates as well as share the wonder at the imaginative Atlantean tech. Little bit of romance for ones who like that, and the science fiction is intriguing too. I could not stop until I read both books. These would make great movies!
