Description

The Dark Shore, the second novel in Kevin Emerson's Atlanteans series, continues the story of Owen Parker, one of the powerful descendants of the highly advanced Atlantean race. As School Library Journal says, "this fast-paced sequel to The Lost Code reads like a combination of Star Trek, Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief, and Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games."

In this book, Owen, Lilly, and Leech have escaped Camp Eden, but the next step on their journey to find Atlantis and protect it from Paul and Project Elysium involves crossing the perilous wastelands of a wrecked planet. And unlike in EdenWest, where bloody truths were kept hidden beneath the surface, out here, the horrors live bright beneath the poisonous sun.

The Dark Shore combines sizzling romance, action, adventure, and powerful scenes of physical and emotional sacrifice in a way that is sure to satisfy lovers of dystopian fiction in the vein of the Maze Runner trilogy. The paperback includes extra content on "where science stops and fantasy starts" in the world of the series.
