About this ebook

It's one thing to Qualify…
But do you have what it takes to Compete?

With Earth about to be destroyed by an extinction level asteroid, teenage nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl Gwen Lark, and a few of her friends and loved ones, barely Qualified for rescue onboard one of the thousands of ark-ships headed to the ancient colony planet Atlantis.

Now faced with a year-long journey in space, life in a wondrously alien environment, and many tough life choices, Gwen must decide who or what she will become. Fleet Cadet or Civilian? Friend or lover? Average or extraordinary?

Can she make new friends? Can she trust the old ones, such as Logan Sangre, her sexy high school crush and an Earth special operative?

Time and time again, Gwen's uncanny ability to come up with the best answer in a crisis saves her life and others. And now, her unique Logos voice makes her an extremely valuable commodity to the Atlanteans -- so much so that her enigmatic commanding officer Aeson Kassiopei, who is also the Imperial Prince of Atlantis, has taken an increasingly personal interest in her.

Before the end of the journey, Gwen must convince him that she has what it takes to compete in the deadly Games of the Atlantis Grail.

It's becoming apparent -- the life of her family and all of Earth depends on it.

COMPETE is the second book in The Atlantis Grail series.

Great books, great details. If you struggle with binge reading I'm sorry but this series will result in several sleepless nights because you won't want to put any of the books down. You will laugh, you will cry and your heart will swell with every single emotion. 100/100 would recommend

No words feel adequate enough to describe this peice of amazing work. The details, the plot line mixed in with a healthy dose of suspense.. It all keeps you on your toes and I barely got any sleep in my stubbornness to know what happens next and to keep reading. The emotional and physiological growth of each character is mind blowing and it all contributes to the build up of the plot wonderfully. It was an amazing book and I am repeatedly grateful to the author for creating this masterpiece.

Again, fantastic. Can't wait for book 4 of this series. I did notice, a couple of places in this book where there was a bit more repetition of thoughts, and one or two incomplete sub-stories that left me wondering. But, still amazing. Still unputdownable. I'm waiting, not so patiently for book 4 to come out in the spring.
