The End is Here, in a Fiery Cosmic Apocalypse!
It's one thing to Qualify, Compete, and Win...
The time has come to Survive.
The Games of the Atlantis Grail have come to a ground-shaking halt and Gwen Lark, nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl, survived the remarkable ordeal, for the time being.
But the worst is yet to come!
Now, both the colony planet Atlantis and Earth are under a threat of annihilation, and everything is up in the air, including dire and stunning wonders in the Atlantean skies.
Will there be a Wedding? Will there be a future for Gwen Lark, her beloved, and all their families, friends, and loved ones?
Is Gwen's rare and powerful talent, the Logos voice of creation, enough to resolve the greatest mystery of the Kassiopei Imperial Dynasty and its role in the events of deepest antiquity since the dawn of time?
The fate of the entire human species is at stake, and now there can be no respite, not a moment to lose. The final battle is here, and Gwen, and everyone she knows and loves, are in for the greatest fight of their lives.
It is time to survive.
SURVIVE is the fourth and final book in The Atlantis Grail series, now an international cross-genre phenomenon, optioned for film.
I enjoyed the characters, but even in her last book it was becoming apparent that she is "playing to the masses" regarding diversity, etc. Truly, "anything goes" in her works and that is not something I subscribe to nor support. It was another unnecessary and detracting piece for me.
Her ending departed from the rest of her works by entering the realm of the surreal and weird. Okay. Didn't expect that and it was okay, but it felt like a HUGE break from the rest of her series.
Many times her book devolved into childish dialogue and reactions. I must wonder who her audience is? Given she did go into sex (albeit as nebulously as she could.... Although she did mention that he was "inside" her and that might be a bit much for YA), the rest of her book seemed to often be written for ten year olds. Do you want to discuss sex with a ten year old?
All in all, I vacillated between a 3 and a 4 for this. I loved that it ended. I loved that she didn't scrimp on the information. This book is LONG! I never lost interest. But I hit many "bumps" which messed with my attention.
Anyone who has read the first three books SHOULD read this one. It will end things nicely for you. But the writing is not nearly as good as her earlier works. That saddened me. Maybe next time.
