Product description

Product Description

Everything you think you know about history is wrong.

What you don’t know can get you killed.

Max had always been a painfully normal kid, until he discovers that he is a descendant of the lost Empire of Atlantis. The Atlanteans possess superhuman powers, are technologically advanced, and have been the sworn protectors and teachers of humanity since time immemorial.

A group known as the Fallen, an opposing faction of Atlanteans who wish to destroy all the “Earthborn”, threaten their benevolent mission. The world has become plagued with war and famine and, all the while, the Fallen close their grip on our planet.

Max is the Key to tipping the balance of this ancient war, but he must first trek across Europe to find his kidnapped parents, with the help of a malfunctioning robot and a combat hardened Atlantean girl.

Two superpowers collide across the European continent to gain control of Max, as he desperately searches for his parents. On his journey, Max will not only learn about the hidden history of the world, he will also learn that the responsibility of earth's very survival rests squarely on his shoulders.

So, you know, no pressure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for young and old! 25 December 2014
By linwelz - Published on

Perry Covington’s first book, Child of Atlantis: Ascension, is the perfect stocking stuffer or New Year’s gift for young and old alike. Once you start reading about Max’s adventures in discovering who he really is, you won’t be able to stop! Covington’s vivid descriptions, such as “Her enemies fell before her like wheat against a sickle” and “…crumpled like a ragdoll” give you a sense of being in the middle of the battle to save Atlantis. Throughout the adventure he deftly references well-known and familiar characters or songs to keep the story relevant. Covington’s skill in martial arts lends credibility and accuracy to his description of battle and weapons. He sends chills up your spine with words like “…a voice that sounded both like a whisper and a tornado” or “The man’s words slithered like a snake.” In addition to the action, the story is sprinkled with an innocent flirting between the main character, Max, and his Atlantian crush, Alana. To appease the need for a bit of fun, Covington adds a mechanical character, Auggie, who has the ability to morph into whichever character fits the scenario, like Captain Jack Sparrow or Wolverine. Once you finish the story you will definitely want to continue on to Book number 2, Child of Atlantis: Destiny. Both are on my lists!

4.0 out of 5 stars YA and Fun 13 September 2014
By Liquid Frost - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a fun “Hero’s Journey” for YA and/or adult readers that enjoy this type of theme. We are introduced to Max in the ordinary world, where he is an average, normal kid with normal kid issues. Max receives the call to adventure and is whisked away to the Order, where he learns of his parents’ and his bloodline to the Empire of Atlantis. Immediately, he begins to learn about the Atlanteans, whom possess superhuman gifts.

The creed of the Atlanteans is to protect and teach humanity; providing gentle guidance. No matter, Max only wants to find his parents. He faces enemies, gains allies, and must pass tests to get closer to his parents’ location.

This is a fun story with good editing and quick dialogue. I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars New player in the game 14 June 2014
By Brian Blanco - Published on
Verified Purchase
The young adult action/adventure genre definitely has a new player in the game. Child of Atlantis and the lead character Maximus Hunter definitely give the Harry Potters, Percy Jacksons, those Kane siblings, and Katniss Everdeens a run for their money in like ability, heroism, and tenacity. Child of Atlantis is a good blend of Indiana Jones and Star Wars for the modern era. Even for someone in their mid 30s there is plenty to like about this book. Eagerly anticipating the follow up.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a Fun read. 8 July 2014
By Jerry J Rogers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book moved at such a fun pace, it was hard to put down once I got started. You can see it was written for older children or young adults, but just like the famous wizards tale (HP), adults will definitely enjoy it. The author is definitely building an intriguing world. My only recommendation is not to introduce so many characters in the length of the book. Just as a couple were getting interesting, the story moved on. I hope many are developed in the series. Looking forward to the next one in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXTREMELY CAPTIVATING 2 June 2014
By Laurice Souron - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had to force myself to go to sleep the first night I started reading. What an amazing book and very descriptive; it was as if I was watching everything happen as I read each word. I agree with Sotera – Auggie is my favorite character too. I have to say the prologue is probably one of the BEST I have read; I loved being able to make the connections throughout the chapters – several “ah-ha” moments. This book has it all. At parts I was on the edge of my seat gripping the Kindle a little too tight, others made me smile, and then there were those out-loud laughter parts. I too can’t wait for the second book and hope it doesn’t stop there, but more than anything I want this book published so I can hold it in my hands and get lost within its pages. Mr. Perry Covington, my dear fellow, you are BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!
