Booklist - 09/01/2016 In Barron’s follow-up to Atlantis in Peril (2015), Prometheus (Promi) and his mortal love Atlanta, from two different worlds, are brought together again as they face the ultimate challenge from evil warrior Narkazan, who is intent on subjugating the spiritual and mortal realms. But more than this, he wants Promi, his family, and his allies dead. Old friends come forward to help battle the wicked warrior, but lives are lost and stories ended. This conclusion to the Atlantis trilogy is an uneven mix of delicately beautiful imagery, a few grisly moments, and plodding prose. Despite weaknesses, the story arc is solid, and familiar characters return. Barron uses his story to explain that protecting those you love sometimes comes with hard choices and sacrifice, but cushions these truths with courage and hope for the future. Though young readers may not catch it, there’s also a clever side plot, nicely connected to our world, that gives a nod to Plato, the first to write of the myth of Atlantis. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Best-seller Barron is going on tour for this trilogy ender, and his many fans will be lining up to get a copy. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
