Gr 3-7–After The Accidental Invasion, humans Lewis and Hanna and their Atlantean comrade Kaya find themselves torn between competing interests on the surface and in Atlantis. Frustrated by the somewhat hostile, strange culture of the “sun people,” Kaya is desperate to return home and rescue her father who risked himself for their escape. Lewis is determined to accompany her and reunite with his own father who remains held captive in the underwater nation. Atlantis issues a warning that war will be declared if the warship the kids used to escape is not returned. In the meantime, a conniving tech billionaire hijacks the ship and demands access to more Atlantean technology before letting the kids go. A humorous yet informative “Science of Atlantis” section is appended.
VERDICT Fans of the first book will enjoy the mix of adventure, humor, and science fiction gadgetry in this action-packed sequel that leaves room for more stories from this world.
