I know, I know. I should be happy with the fantastic books I just got from BEA. But I can’t help myself. I’m a greedy, greedy girl who wants ALL THE BOOKS. Atlantia was one of the samples Penguin gave out during BEA. Samples annoy me. Samples might work for some people but they just frustrate me (much like serials that I have to wait more than a day for). I’m intrigued by this one, which looks to be a standalone (I’m guessing–there’s no series name or number after the title in Goodreads), which is a huge positive.
I like the simplicity of the cover and the beautiful shell. Though, to be honest, the cover echoes a lot of the harder erotica books, with just an object and not much else on the cover. Positive this isn’t erotica, and I’m pretty sure that’s not what the cover meant to bring to mind. Oops.
Can you hear Atlantia breathing?
For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.
Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.
