I finished up Four quickly, completed the last few chapters of The Paris Wife, and I’m on to my next book. I just started reading Atlantia by Ally Condie last night, so I am not very far into the book yet. I’ve been wanting to read this book because I enjoyed Condie’s Matched trilogy (Matched, Crossed, Reached). I am reading this book as a digital library loan on my kindle fire.
Goodreads Book Blurb:
For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.
Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.
So far, I know I need to keep reading because I’m just in the “meet the characters, figure out the problem, learn about the world” stage, but I’m interested to find out more. Already, there is an underground world, a mysterious death, a betrayal by a beloved sibling, sirens (as in people who have power with their voices), and a quest to escape to Above. I think this will be an exciting book- especially since this is a standalone book and not a trilogy. That means Condie will have to get a lot done in 300 pages. I’m ready to dive into this underwater world to find out what happens next.
