About a month ago, I stumbled across author Emily Hayse’s Instagram profile and saw that she was in the process of finishing writing and editing her latest novel The Last Atlantean. Seeing that it was about Atlantis a place I have always been fascinated by since watching the Disney Atlantis movies, I knew I wanted to read it. So I reached out to her and long story short she accepted me onto her street team and I received a free ARC copy of her book in return for my review.
About the Last Atlantean:
“Watch, ye sons of the sea, your doom is at hand. With soundless storm rises the fate of Atlantis.”
As a lighthouse keeper’s daughter, Hattie has always been able to handle anything the Atlantic throws at her. But when a stranger washes ashore in a storm, she finds herself unraveling a mystery that will change her life.
Caught up in a high-stakes game of intrigue and hidden loyalties, Hattie watches legends take shape before her eyes. But as kings and pawns prepare for a showdown that will determine the fate of an ancient world, she wonders whether she has thrown in her lot with the hero or the villain.
I have been so intrigued with this story since the first page. Emily has a wonderful way with words and excellent skills of weaving a captivating story. Her characters are so life like. The book is told from the POV of the heroine Hattie Scrow who is 19 years old and lives with her dad in a coastal town in Maine. Which is another reason I fell in love with the story. I was born in Massachusetts and often visited Maine during the summer months when I lived there. This book has so many great qualities. It has romance, mystery, adventure, suspense, and a bit of fantasy. Now, I must confess, I have not quite finished the book due to some unforeseen personal things come up. However, I can say that what I have read I have thoroughly enjoyed and I look forward to finishing it. If you are interested in all these things, don’t hesitate to buy it.
