Description

THE ATLANTIS GRAIL has been optioned for development as a feature film series and/or TV series.

You have two options. You die, or you Qualify.

The year is 2047. An extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and the descendants of ancient Atlantis have returned from the stars in their silver ships to offer humanity help.

But there's a catch.

They can only take a tiny percent of the Earth's population back to the colony planet Atlantis. And in order to be chosen, you must be a teen, you must be bright, talented, and athletic, and you must Qualify.

Sixteen-year-old Gwenevere Lark is determined not only to Qualify but to rescue her entire family.

Because there's a loophole.

If you are good enough to Qualify, you are eligible to compete in the brutal games of the Atlantis Grail, which grants all winners the laurels, high tech luxuries, and full privileges of Atlantis Citizenship. And if you are in the Top Ten, then all your wildest wishes are granted... Such as curing your mother's cancer.

There is only one problem.

Gwen Lark is known as a klutz and a nerd. While she's a hotshot in classics, history, science, and languages, the closest she's come to sports is a backyard pool and a skateboard.

This time she is in over her head, and in for a fight of her life, against impossible odds and world-class competition--including Logan Sangre, the most amazing guy in her school, the one she's been crushing on, and who doesn't seem to know she exists.

Because every other teen on Earth has the same idea.

You Qualify or you die.

  • Tf do you know how music works

    How many people in the world legitimately have perfect pitch? In a school of 2000 students, there are 10 or 20 at most. In your book, you say that a full 10% can tell exactly what notes a guy is singing, and also how to exactly replicate those notes. Have you ever played music before? I sincerely hope you haven’t, because that would make you a disgrace to the musical community
  • Very “Hunger Games”

    While I did not find this as captivating as the Hunger Games, it was still worth reading. Some parts try too hard to replicate Hunger Games, and I found myself skimming over those parts to get to the more original aspects.
  • Awesome

    This book is one of those that will stay in your mind even after you finish it. Great plot, and great characters. I really enjoyed the book and will buy the sequel. Really recommend if you enjoyed the ‘Hunger Games’ as this book deals with fighting for those you love and would do anything you need to do, to help and save them.
  • Amazing!

    While this is not Harry Potter level, very few if any books out today are, it is certainly more than adequate. The characters are well developed & the plot contains some very original surprises. It treads very lightly on the teen romance element & still maintains the integrity of the story. This is one of the very few books I highly recommend for readers of all ages who enjoy this genre.
  • Lacking
