*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

Wow! And I thought Child of Atlantis: Ascension (book 1) was incredibly descriptive! The descriptive world-building took me on another adventure through history and mythology, so intriguing that it kept me turning the pages. Perry Covington's characters, with their distinct and individual personalities, created a dramatic and animated flair to the story. I ended up empathizing with each individual young character as they continued to deal with all the obstacles and trials that was laid in front of them, especially Max. Then, there's Wayland...finding out about his true heritage, just like Max had learned. It definitely was a shocker finding out there is a whole different world around them.

From Ascension to Destiny, the author expanded on his descriptive world-building and character development. We learned more about each character, which, in turn, revealed a lot about their choices and decisions they make. For such young characters, they have endured a lot more than any average young adult endures in their lives. But, they aren't your average teenagers....right?!? However, they are still teenagers and act as such...which teenagers can relate to. Moreover, these teenagers are placed in a position that forces them to grow up a lot sooner than they should.

Being a fan of pop culture, the onslaught of references to various fandoms made this read even more so enjoyable and exciting. Fangirls and fanboys alike would definitely give a nod to the many references found throughtout this read (I think) since I found myself smirking with amusement.

Child of Atlantis: Destiny is, yet again, another incredible journey into world behind another world. Filled with various action and adventure scenes that will keep readers on the "edge of their seats" and cheering on our heroes as they continue on their plight to save the world.
