Review: The Lost Code (Atlantian #1) by Kevin Emerson
WHAT IS OLDEST WILL BE NEW, WHAT IS LOST SHALL BE FOUND.
The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth’s history.
No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.
Now it is Owen’s turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry…and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary.
This book starts off slowly but keep going and you will quickly find out that nothing is as it seems, after the slow beginning it picked up speed very quickly and the romance in it was subtle enough that I didn’t feel bashed over the head with it like in so many other romance novels (dystopian or not), although it could have easily been left out and still been an enjoyable read.
The book’s ending leaves me to wonder, if Lily isn’t the other Atlantian, who is? And what challenges will they face next?
