As soon as I saw the description for this book I knew I wanted to read it. Atlantis! The idea here is that the planet is in pretty rough shape due to some pretty drastic climate changes. Now the worlds population is living either underground or in what are essentially bio domes, but even those are failing and quickly.

The Lost Code is partly a story about summer camp but it reads like pure adventure, complete with underwater cities, secret codes at ancient legends. Thankfully, we don't get dropped off right in the middle of things but instead get to learn along with Owen Parker as he pieces things together to try and figure out exactly what the lost code of the Atlanteans is.

It was really refreshing to read a YA title with a male main character. It put a new twist on every aspect of the book, my favorite being seeing the romance aspect from Owens point of view.

We don't get to much history about Atlantis in this first book but there was definitely enough to catch my interest and lay the groundwork for some future awesome stories. I'm curious to see how ancient wisdom (or something along those lines) might be used to take the Earth back from the brink of disaster and self annihilation, but I would have to guess we won't see how that plays out until this series comes to an end. Can't wait!
