Summary: Leoros doesn’t have many friends. The son of a scientist and archaeologist, he is constantly on the move. But when his parents make a startling discovery in Egypt, Leoros’ world is turned upside down. When an archaeologist discovers the mythic Emerald Tablet buried beneath Egypt’s desert, her son decodes the ancient text leading him to a distant world. On that world, a slave girl begins a journey towards a destiny she cannot imagine. But when an ancient foe rises from the ashes, they will be brought together by forces neither understands. Leoros, who dreams of being like the heroes in the comic books, must fight to unlock the secrets of the universe to save a people he never knew existed. Atlantia, whose bloody visions wake her in the night, senses the darkness coming. Together they will face an enemy with the power of dark energy, lose a mentor to the assassin’s blade, and be betrayed by someone they trust. Their fight for the future is just beginning, and before it is over, a final sacrifice must be made. When the darkness comes, will they stand and fight or will they join it? There is darkness in everyone.
My Review: I received this book for a fair and honest review. This book has a futuristic feel to it. This book is definitely for any sci-fi lover. The opening scene in the book left me gasping in surprise and made me want to find out why things were going on that were. It really set the whole tone for the book. As much as we try not to let it, our past defines who we are in the present. This book for me was a bit hard to get into. I’m not really much of a sci-fi fan. The author however did an amazing job of articulating this story. You can see the scenes play out in your mind. You are left wanting, needing more.
