Atlantis RebornAtlantis Reborn

In a few days, I’ll officially be the Laurel clan chief—but it comes at a heavy cost. My human family, the McKyes, think I’m dead, and the only family I have left is my surly cousin, Theron. Plus the occasional visit from my dead mother. Gathering the fifteen clans of Atlantis is more tasking than I thought. Thank fate that Ian has my back, otherwise keeping the peace would be a total disaster. I want to give him my heart, too, but without an official likeness, or spontaneous pairing, it’s only wishful thinking. To make matters worse, someone out there has the formula to create human-Atlantian hybrids. For a hefty price. Certain chiefs are so desperate to increase our population that they refuse to see the price might be more than money; it could cost us our souls. If I can’t change their minds, the descendants of Atlantis could disappear forever.

“I have to say that my favorite things about this story are Theron, Lillian, and Ian. I love grumpy, adorable Theron who should be working for the NSA denying the Chinese, North Koreans, and Russians access to our personal information. I love the cranky, book nerd Lillian who really comes out of her shell this time out. Lillian has been a friend and a supporter of Alison for some time now. Ian, well, Ian is just the perfect partner for Alison to fall madly, deeply in love with.”

-Shelley, Gizmo’s Reviews

“The author does a great job with the plot line in this book that it will leave you second guessing all the twists and turns. I found this to be a fun but quick read.”

-Lovely Loveday

“Falling back into Allison and Ian’s world was like wrapping myself up in my cosiest blanket, complete with hot chocolate with marshmallows! This is meant in the best possible way. It was just so easy to fall into the storyline and be reunited with the various characters and storylines.”

After all they’d cost me, I thought I was done with the Truss clan. I was wrong. Nikki Dawning, my mortal enemy, has been kidnapped, and I’ve been asked to spy on the Truss to find her. The pull between Ian and I has never been stronger, but he can’t help me this time. I have to rely on Theron, a bad-tempered cousin I didn’t know I had. To make matters worse, the people I trust have been keeping secrets.

I’m starting to feel like a weapon in a war I don’t understand. How far am I willing to go to protect the descendants of Atlantis and the common good when I’m not sure what the common good is anymore?

Only one thing is certain. If I’m the next Laurel clan chief, I can’t let myself be manipulated…by anyone.

Alison always knew she was different. She just didn’t know how different.

“I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid.

Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…”

“This book was definitely a feel good book. It was one of those books where I looked like a lunatic because I was smiling at my phone while reading. Yes, my unconscious smile did turn on while reading. It also seemed like I was laughing while reading almost every chapter, due to the hysterical dialogue between characters.”

“This is a fast paced and exciting story that captured my imagination. What a wild and exciting ride. Gloria Craw did a wonderful job. I couldn’t put down Atlantis Rising.”

“In the genre of paranormal, books about Atlantis, conspiracies, and people with supernatural powers are staples. It’s often difficult to find a unique story, and because of that, gems end up standing out quite a bit. This is one of those stories, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to read it!

Even from the first chapter, this story felt different and fresh. From the writing style to the characters’ personalities, this book offered a new story, and actually left me guessing what would happen next. Each character was unique and interesting as well. I loved Alison’s uniqueness and strength, which I loved watching grow from quiet to a raging fire. Mixed with Ian’s incredible character, they were an amazing match. To add another dynamite personality, the sweet and lovable Brandy, who was probably one of my favorite parts of the story.

Overall, this is definitely a book I’d recommend to anyone who’s a fan of good writing, paranormal adventure, fantasy and romance.”

Easy little tips about how to make your house, wardrobe, mealtimes, and routine work for you instead of the other way around.

We’ll see if I’m able to continue implementing some of them, but so far so good!”
