Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite

In a brand new novel by debut author Mara Powers, Shadows of Atlantis: Awakening, readers will be taken along on an absolutely epic journey to amazing Atlantis, focus of stories both old and new. The Atlantis of author Powers’ work is a beautiful paradise, one in which everyone can live to their highest potential, and in complete peace with nature. Atlantis is run by the Crystal Grid, energized by the psychic power of its inhabitants, and this has worked well for thousands of years. But now the grid is in danger. Parasites feeding off of humans’ negative emotions are pulling energy away from the grid. Atlantis and all of its perfection could be lost forever. D’Vinid, a musician who feels rather rejected and can think of nothing but his personal problems, meets Brigitte from Atlantis, and finds that he may be the only key to the survival of this idyllic place. But can someone so flawed, so enmeshed in his own private problems, really be able to move forward to help a society in desperate need? You’ll need to read the book to find out!

I loved this book. Loved. It. Shadows of Atlantis: Awakening is an absolutely fantastic read that had me turning the pages obsessively from the very beginning. Once I started this book, I simply could not put it down, it was that good. Author Mara Powers has done a fabulous job in creating characters that her readers will truly care about and connect with. Her ability to create a fantastic but believable world is simply second to none. Any reader who loves a great read in the fantasy genre, or simply a wonderful work of fiction, should absolutely read Shadows of Atlantis: Awakening. I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading more in this promising new series and from the highly talented newcomer, Mara Powers, hopefully in the very near future!
