Book Review

Reviewed by Sarah Stuart for Readers' Favorite

As Above So Below: Veil Over Atlantis by P Milisande is a very different YA thriller. It’s a challenging novel for teenagers to read with its mix of past and present, scientific fact, Greek myth, and fantasy, but they will be able to empathise with the lead character. Maia leads such a normal life, touched by sadness when her friend, Elle, loses her mother to cancer. The religious aspect is intriguing, hinting at an affinity between Maia and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and yet the prophesy carved in stone spells danger. “For to journey within is to heed the call but to find the path means to lose it all.” Illustrations keep the focus on Google Earth: the device used to drive the plot and tie the threads together.

“In the beginning… the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.” Beneath the sea lie the caves where the seven sisters play. Thrilling fantasy at its best may be found in As Above So Below: Veil Over Atlantis. The story opens with mischievous Maia using magic, forbidden in their game, to tease her sisters. Their father believes in living life to the full, and the reader is plunged into the twenty-first century; fourteen-year-old Maia is learning to fly a Cessna, but her instructor’s name is Noah. Curiouser and curiouser… yes, this book enchants the way Lewis Carroll’s Alice stories did, and still do. P Milisande has given us a future classic: unique and stunning.
