Release Date: February 2nd 2014
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy





All her life, clever Aemi has been a slave in the Village of the Rocks, a place where the sea and sky meet. She’s heard the stories about the fabled People of the Sea, a people who possess unimaginable technology who live below the waves in the dark, secret places of the ocean. But she never dreamed those stories were true.

When a ship emerges from the ocean and men burn her village, Aemi is captured, and enslaved below the waves in Itlantis, a world filled with ancient cities of glass and metal, floating gardens, and wondrous devices that seem to work magic. To make matters worse, her village nemesis, the stuck-up mayor’s son Nol, was captured with her, and they are made servants in the same household beneath the sea.

Desperate to be free, Aemi plots her escape, even going so far as to work with Nol. But the sea holds more secrets than she realizes, and escape might not be as simple as leaving.









I received a free copy via YA Bound Tours in exchange for a free review. I made no guarantee of a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are my own.

This is the first book I've read written by Kate Avery Ellison and she now has a new fan as this book is a fantastic read. It's full of action and moments of despair and sorrow that of course had me shedding tears. You'll also find your mouth dropping wide open as unexpected revelations are revealed.

This fantasy read about Itlantis is off to a wonderful start. I found this book to be well written with a continuously developing plot and characters that jump right off of the pages, making this book an exceptional read and appropriate for readers of all ages.

I give this book






I've been making up stories since I was five years old, and now I'm thrilled to be able to do it as a full-time job. I have an obsession with dark fantasy, dystopian futures, and Pride and Prejudice-style love stories full of witty banter and sizzling, unspoken feelings. When I'm not writing, I'm creating digital art, reading funny blogs, or watching my favorite shows (which include TVD and BSG). I live with my geeky husband and our two bad cats in Atlanta, GA.
