You’ll never see me unless I want you to… I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid. Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…  

Book Title: Atlantis Quest (Atlantis Rising, #2) Author: Gloria Craw Release Date: Mar. 1, 2016 Genre: YA Fantasy Get ready for the exciting follow up to Atlantis Rising, dubbedAn enchanting debut from a promising new author of paranormal YAby Kirkus Reviews.   After all they’d cost me, I thought I was done with the Truss clan. I was wrong. Nikki Dawning, my mortal enemy, has beenkidnapped, and I’ve been asked to spy on the Truss to find her. The pull between Ian and I has never been stronger, but he can’t help me this time. I have to rely on Theron, a bad-tempered cousin I didn’t know I had. To make matters worse, the people I trust have been keeping secrets.   I’m starting to feel like a weapon in a war I don’t understand. How far am I willing to go to protect the descendants of Atlantis and the common good when I’m not sure what the common good is anymore?   Only one thing is certain. If I’m the next Laurel clan chief, I can’t let myself be manipulated…by anyone.

~Author Interview~
Can you tell us about your book, Atlantis Quest, in 35 words or less?

With the fate of humankind and the descendants of Atlantis hanging in the balance, Alison and Ian spy on a Truss clan gathering to save the girl who betrayed them both.

What was your favorite scene to write?

I loved writing the drive from the airport to the cabin. Alison and her cousin, Theron, can’t stand each other, and they don’t try to hide it. The sarcastic animosity between them got funnier with each edit. I’m not sure what it says about me as a person, but it was easy to write their dialogue.

What was the hardest scene to edit out?

I cut a scene between Alison and Connor who was introduced to in the first book. The two of them had a moving conversation near the beginning, but it slowed the pace of the story too much. I took it out and put it back in a couple of times before I finally accepted it was best to let the scene go. I love talkative, party-planner Connor. He’s in Atlantis Quest, just not as much as I’d originally planned.

How many books will be in this series?

There will be three books. Atlantis Rising, Atlantis Quest and Atlantis Reborn which is due to release in 2017.

Are you currently working on anything else?

I’m currently finishing up Atlantis Reborn. I have a young adult mystery I need to put final touches on, and I’ve started outlining for a young adult sci fi series.

Do you have a favorite quote from Atlantis Quest?

“That was one of the things that made Ian...Ian. He had confidence. He was only half kidding when he called himself the master. In his mind it wasn’t boasting; it was a statement of fact.
He slid his hand over mine while our breathing slowed, and I laced my fingers through his. The two of us had been through a lot together. When I say a lot, I mean heavy-duty-stuff… life-and-death stuff.
He didn’t shy away from telling me he wanted to be more than friends, nor did he let it get awkward between us when I resisted. That was another thing that made Ian...Ian. He didn’t get embarrassed.”

If you had to give Atlantis Quest a theme song, what would you choose?

Adventure Of A Lifetime, by Coldplay. It fits freakishly well.

What is the best book you’ve read recently?

I enjoyed The Rule of Thoughts, by James Dashner.

Read below for an excerpt from Atlantis Quest: I stopped talking because Ian had stepped in front of me and slid his hand behind my neck. I knew what he was going to do. I also knew I should turn away, but I didn’t. I let him move closer, I didn’t look away when his eyes lingered on my lips, and I didn’t tell him to stop when his lips touched mine. Instead, I moved even nearer until there was no space between us. I reached up and ran my fingers through the golden-blond hair that curled up at his shirt collar.
