New Fantasy Adventure from a Master Storyteller
NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With his trademark magic and adventure, New York Times best-selling author of the Merlin Saga, T.A. Barron, is now back with a whole new mythology: the origin of the legendary isle of Atlantis. It is the first book in an exciting new trilogy that explores not how Atlantis was destroyed but -- for the first time -- how it was born.
Atlantis Rising (Philomel; September 26, 2013; $17.99) is aimed at young readers ages 9 and up, and is filled with the colorful characters and richly detailed fantasy world that are uniquely T. A. Barron. It includes themes of discovering your inner hero and preserving nature, two topics the author feels are extremely important in today's world.
Atlantis Rising tells the tale of a magical land called Ellegandia, where a young boy named Promi scrapes by to survive. Little does he know that his country is a pawn in an ages-old war between good and evil, battled both in the spirit realm and in the human world. Harboring secrets of his own, Promi teams up with a courageous girl named Atlanta and the two vow to save their forest, their land and each other, no matter the cost. But their vow has greater repercussions than they ever could have imagined. In fact, it may just bring about the creation of Atlantis, an island cut off from the rest of the world, where magic reigns supreme.
The book entertains while inspiring the reader to examine real-life issues of bravery, honesty and loyalty. The main characters must dig deep within themselves to find their inner strength, their inner magic, and work together to achieve the impossible. "Young people read books to explore the world and themselves; to discover who they are and who they will become," says Barron. "That's important to any child's emotional and intellectual growth."
Atlantis Rising will be available everywhere books are sold. Copies can be pre-ordered at www.boulderbookstore.net/pre-order-atlantis-rising. The first 2,000 people to pre-order the book will receive a signed edition and a special mini-poster.
