BEWARE THE GODS AND THEIR HORRORS. Owen and Lilly have escaped Camp Eden, but the next step on their journey to find Atlantis and protect it from Paul and Project Elysium involves crossing the perilous wastelands of a wrecked planet. And unlike in EdenWest, where bloody truths were kept hidden beneath the surface, out here the horrors live bright beneath the poisonous sun. With treachery at every turn, Owen has no choice but to bring his wounded clan to the dark shores of Desenna, a city built from the ashes of EdenSouth. Desenna's blood-soaked walls may hold the key to Owen's journey in the form of the third Atlantean as well as a deeper understanding of the true purpose of the Three, but there are also secrets lurking in the shadows, waiting to be unleashed, and once they rise, there may be no escape.
Filled with action, mind-bending twists, and powerful scenes of emotional and physical sacrifice, THE DARK SHORE takes readers on a journey to a question so great, even the gods have trouble answering it: What would you be willing to do, to save humanity from itself?

After a simply amazing start to this series, The Dark Shore had a lot to live up to.  While it wasn’t as amazing as The Lost Code, it was pretty darn close.  The idea for this whole series is extremely cool and imaginative.  Atlanteans and mythological gods.  Genius!  The writing was very good, as was the setting and world.  In the beginning of the book the story was really predictable and I could guess what was going to happen, but towards the middle and the end it got much more suspenseful and interesting.  The ending was really amazing, and there are a couple twists that you will NEVER see coming.

I really like this cast.  They’re just so awesome. Seven was a favorite of mine.  She was completely crazy and added a bit of humor and snark to the story.  Owen was an awesome main character.  He really developed over the course of the two books and I loved seeing him grown stronger and more confident.  Lilly and Leech were awesome characters to add to the mix, and all of them made for a perfect cast.

Since this book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger I’m expecting a third book!  I really can’t wait to see what happens in the next book(s).  These characters are so awesome and fun, and the idea is so imaginative, I don’t want to leave the world!

  4. Nicely written teen novel series. Enjoyable. Clean ethics. Interesting plot line. Fits male and female interests equally (interestingly enough). We had just one question when we were finished: Is this the end?
