Finding Atlantis is a work of children’s fantasy and science fiction by author J.M. Dover. In this adventurous and exciting tale, our hero is young Adam Danburg. Taken from an ordinary life on Earth, Adam travels across the space-time continuum to discover that the fabled city of Atlantis is not lost after all, but that it exists in a very different way to the rest of the universe. Things have moved on in Atlantis, and there are as many dangers as there are wonders lurking behind the shimmering shores and crystal waters. On top of all this, Adam discovers an incredible ability that he can’t control, and a destiny that sees him bringing either salvation or destruction to the city itself.
Author J.M. Dover writes with great creativity and imagination in this fantastic reboot of the Atlantis concept. I really enjoyed the darkness to the tale, which was appropriate and exciting for a children’s novel, up to about the middle grade age of readers. Even as an adult, I found myself thrilled by the mystery of how Adam’s powers were developing and who the rest of the trio are that Atlantis’s fate rests with. The descriptions were lively and the dialogue felt realistic to childhood. Adam is a little precocious for his age, but a charming protagonist whom you really want to see succeed. I would love to read more from this author in the future, and overall I’d definitely recommend Finding Atlantis as a highly enjoyable children’s tale.
