Review: Atlantis Rising by Gloria Craw (DNF)

Atlantis Rising

I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid.

Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…

I really desperately wanted to love Atlantis Rising, but unfortunately it just didn't do much for me. In fact, I tried so hard to get into it over the past month but I had to just admit that it was not for me - not at all. I managed to push through to about half way through the book before I gave up and skimmed the last half. It's difficult because I so don't want to DNF this book, but I don't want to review a book in full when I haven't read it in full.

I feel like so many characters were thrown at us in the start and the plot seemed very rushed that I feel like I was left behind at the start. However, despite the rushed start the writing felt very simplistic and long winded. I just couldn't find anything to get a hold on, which isn't a great start for me.

I can't really say much more - if you like cliche paranormal (and that isn't necessarily a bad thing) - this is a book for you to try. For me though, it wasn't really my thing.
