ATLANTIS: THE VISIONARY CONTINENT Vol 1 by Melissa Wong
This action, magic-packed light novel begins with a young girl, Achine, being abducted in the middle of the night by a mage! When she awakes in a mysterious place, they tell her she is the only heir to the throne of Atlantis, and that her grandfather, the king, is dead! She has nothing but his ring to remind her of the mainland–her once home. Achine struggles to accept this, as anyone would, until she attends the kings funeral and sees with her own eyes that it’s true! Her grandfather really is dead! The journey to the throne thus begins.
Melissa throws you into a unknown world, packed full of magic and adventure. Her writing is fluent and the novel as a whole is beautifully put together. As her main character adjusts to life as an Atlantian, new relationships blossom, and others set out to overthrow the kingdom! Any young girl can relate to Achine, the main protagonist. Melissa has gone in depth with the character development, as well with side characters. I found myself laughing in parts, and feeling sad in others. Melissa has also gone to the trouble of creating her own language! She has even added a horoscope at the back and a map in the beginning. Amazing, right?
Along with being the author, Melissa illustrated it too! She sure put in a lot of effort, and it has payed off!
Overall, the story kept my interest, all 80,000 words of it! The only let down for me was the swearing, there’s quite a lot of it towards the end. I feel that if Melissa kept the cussing out, i would of given Atlantis five stars, but seeing as she didn’t, four stars will have to do! If you’re of age, I’d definitely recommend Atlantis: A Visionary Continent. One of my favorite indie light novels, for on 0.99 on amazon! http://amzn.to/2pbj0wC
