Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-10-Barron leaves Arthurian legend behind to explore the legend of Atlantis, beginning with Promi, a young thief with a strong sweet tooth, who angers his city's leaders by stealing a jeweled belt buckle from the evil Deputy High Priest Grukarr. Promi soon learns that he has become part of an ongoing conflict between good and evil. The forces of evil are led by Grukarr, while the forces of good are embodied in Atlanta, a girl with magical powers and a love of nature. While Promi and Atlanta have different views on things like the importance of eating sweets, they soon develop a friendship and work together to defeat Grukarr's plans to destroy Atlanta's beloved forest home. A mysterious prophecy, magical creatures, and visits to the spirit realm add complexity to the ongoing action as Promi faces a variety of dangers and learns how to use his own magical abilities. Atlanta and Promi's relationship grows realistically as they work together, and Promi learns about sacrificing his own pleasure for what really matters. The conclusion is bittersweet and explains the creation of Atlantis, leaving room for sequels. While there's more action than character development, fans of Barron's many books about Merlin will find much to enjoy here, as will those who loved of Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson" books (Hyperion).-Beth L.

From Booklist

Promi lives by his wits as a knife-wielding thief in the City of Great Powers, caring only about himself. A chance involvement with a young girl named Atlanta involves him in the conflict between grasping evil priest Grukarr and the young girl, who is defending the last natural magic in the land of Ellegandia. Can Promi care enough about something other than himself to fulfill his destiny? An author’s foreword indicates that this is Barron’s vision of the birth of Atlantis, but the bulk of the book is about Promi and his journey, with only a few pages at the end indicating the island’s creation as a consequence of Promi’s actions. This ably developed fantasy fits comfortably within the young-person-discovering-his-magical-talents category, although those who liked, for example, the Septimus Heap series may find this a bit slowgoing. Each chapter begins with journal quotes from Promi and an unnamed source (it isn’t clear if it is Atlanta or someone else), and maps bracket the story, showing Ellegandia and Atlantis. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With the Merlin Saga and the Heartlight Saga, Barron established himself as one of the go-to guys for middle-grade fantasy. Comic-Con promotions will only increase demand. Grades 4-8. --Cindy Welch

I applaud T.A. Barron! He writes for the betterment of our young people planting a seed with every word in hopes that they awaken to how much we need to be responsible when living and sharing this planet.
He writes of the birth of a place that I believe once existed, along with Lemuria. For these places were not destroyed never to return, but only taken from us, set in a different dimension to protect and preserve until we are ready to be an equal part of and live according to the laws of nature. For we are not above nature, we are part of nature.
He shares my belief that we are all immortal and death does not have to be and is not the end. We are all part of a much bigger plan, living, growing and expanding from one lower dimension striving to reach the higher dimensions where Atlantis or Lemuria awaits us.
Promi and his entourage heard the calling; they gave all to save the good of Mother Earth and help her ascend to the higher realm, teaching we all have the choice to all walk the Rainbow Bridge to perfect love and trust …the final act to the origin of all magic.

Fantasy and science fiction are usually not included in my "to read" list. However, it is hard to resist reconnecting with a blog acquaintance who has recently been cited with another award-winning book. T.A Barron sent me a copy of Atlantis Rising in exchange for this book review.

After receiving the 370+ page book, I had my doubts if I would be able to finish such a long book in a genre that I usually avoid. I stepped outside my comfort zone and started to read.

To my surprise, I had no problem completing the book in just a handful of days. Atlantis Rising captured my attention. I was hooked. Yes, I was up for an adventure that took me to the magical land of Ellegandia. For an unknown reason, I connected with a young thief named Promi. Perhaps, I was intrigued by his love for sweets or his ability to elude the evil elements of society. There was no shortage of villains who were collaborating to destroy both the mortal and the immortal worlds.

Promi’s ability to overcome his personal shortcomings and the evil forces was aided by fellow protagonist, Atlanta. Promi had additional assistance from the Listener magic he received from Jaladay and the magical knife that was bestowed upon him by the river god.

I was fascinating by the concept of Listener magic. “Listener magic does not take anything away from the world. Nor does it force anything new upon the world. Rather, it simply listens to the underlying truth of the world. “ 99

Despite urgings from others and the added benefit of magical powers, Promi was selfish and reluctant to get involved. This is exemplified in the following passage. “He (Promi) couldn’t imagine giving up the life he’d always known to help Atlanta.

The characters were engaging, the story moved along and the ending was unexpected but right for the story. It has a timeless aspect to it...almost like a greek myth or legend. It was good.

I really enjoyed this book from the beginning to end. I was always wonder what was coming next and never wanted to put the book down. It would of been great if he made this book into a small series so there could be more things happening that would of showed us Atlantis more but that's more or a personal opinion. Over all I loved this book and already recommended it to several people.

T.A. Barron has written another epic tale...only this time it's about a magical land called Ellegandia, and young thief named Promi.

Promi steals food, clothes and anything else he needs to survive. But little does he know that when he attempts to steal a pie from the Divine monk that he would be caught, thrown in a dismal dungeon and his life would change forever. Soon, he learns that his country is a battleground for a war between the spirit realm and human kind. Hiding a birthmark that has been written about in multiple prophecies, Promi tries to ignore the imminent battle that will come. But when he meets a smart girl named Atlanta, the two of them, and a kermuncle named Kermi, try to save their land--and each other--no matter what happens. But their actions reap a much bigger surprise...

This book was a total page turner. There was never a dull moment, and there were plenty of surprises hidden around the corners. I was frantically flipping through the pages, anxious to see what would happen next and frequently surprised by what did occur.

The characters were what really made the book great, though. Though they started out as perhaps less than admirable, I was pleased with the changes of heart that the characters went through while they journeyed together. It was, overall, one of the best stories about Atlantis that I have read yet.

It's perfect for fans of Mythology, folklore and fantasy of all ages.
