Resisting Atlantis by Jamie Canosa

What if everything you think you know . . . is wrong?

Cora is your average college freshman. Battling the evils of boring classes and noisy dorms, her greatest concern is how to attract the attention of the drool-worthy, party-god next door.

That is, until Kaden comes barging into her life, insisting everything she knows is false. The family and friends she grew up with don’t exist. Her entire past a carefully-crafted fabrication, created to replace the truth.

Her name isn’t Cora, it’s Cameron. And she isn’t from New York. She hails from Atlantis. Yeah, that Atlantis. Oh yeah, and she’s psychic. 

Crazy, right?

Except, tall, dark, and out-of-his-ever-loving-mind doesn’t come alone. Trouble follows, thrusting Cameron back into a world she can’t remember and a life she must reclaim if they’re going to make it out alive.

But there’s someone out there who doesn’t want her to remember.

My Thoughts

Resisting Atlantis is a fantastically fun ride, from the cool, snarky heroine (my favorite kind) to the drool-worthy hero. Jamie Canosa once again gives us unforgettable, amazing, courageous, fun, amusing, sexy characters and a story you'll be thinking about long past the last page, with a writing style that I adore.

Cora is just happily trucking through life as a college student who keeps to herself, and gets her homework done on time. One day, a stranger shows up in her room, telling her that not only is her name Cameron, but that her life is a lie. She’s really from Atlantis (yup, the one you’re thinking of) and while she might think he’s crazy, it isn’t long until she finds out she’s right. Now she’s thrust into the middle of a war she doesn’t remember, with people who are now strangers though they claim to know her, and into the role of a leader in spite of the fact that she can’t imagine it of herself. I love the uniqueness of this storyline. I mean, Atlantis! Cool idea.

I’m a huge fan of Jamie’s work, her Dissidence series being one of my all-time favorites. My favorite vampire story happens to not star a certain sparkly vampire, but is Our Own Worst Enemies, also by Jamie. So when you have an author who you love so much, it almost becomes worrisome that you might not love their further works as much. With Jamie, I has as of yet to not completely adore everything she’s written. I’ll be honest, Resisting Atlantis is neck-and-neck with Dissidence now for favorite heroine and hero.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well told story, no matter your age. I can't wait for the sequel!
