The Atlantis Grail has been optioned for development as a feature film series and/or TV series.
It’s one thing to Qualify…
But do you have what it takes to Compete?
With Earth about to be destroyed by an extinction level asteroid, teenage nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl Gwen Lark, and a few of her friends and loved ones, barely Qualified for rescue onboard one of the thousands of ark-ships headed to the ancient colony planet Atlantis.
Now faced with a year-long journey in space, life in a wondrously alien environment, and many tough life choices, Gwen must decide who or what she will become. Fleet Cadet or Civilian? Friend or lover? Average or extraordinary?
Can she make new friends? Can she trust the old ones, such as Logan Sangre, her sexy high school crush and an Earth special operative?
Time and time again, Gwen’s uncanny ability to come up with the best answer in a crisis saves her life and others. And now, her unique Logos voice makes her an extremely valuable commodity to the Atlanteans — so much so that her enigmatic commanding officer Aeson Kassiopei, who is also the Imperial Prince of Atlantis, has taken an increasingly personal interest in her.
Before the end of the journey, Gwen must convince him that she has what it takes to compete in the deadly Games of the Atlantis Grail.
It’s becoming apparent — the life of her family and all of Earth depends on it.
“Every once in a while, a story comes along that stays with you long after you’ve read it for the first time. Even better is when you know the sequel is ready, and it is an equally satisfying read.
If you haven’t already read the first book in the Atlantis Grail series, Qualify, you need to. Otherwise, some of Compete will not make sense. And it’s a great story, too – the year is 2047, a meteorite of catastrophic proportions is heading toward Earth and our Atlantean cousins, who left the planet a long time ago, have returned to save as many young people as they can. In order to qualify for a place on one of the Atlantean ships, these teens have struggled through training and competition and have earned the right to make the one-year journey to a new solar system and a new life.”
