The Lost Code- Kevin Emerson

ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Synopsis: The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth’s history.

No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.

Now it is Owen’s turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry…and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary. -Goodreads

Review: 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!
