4.0 su 5 stelle A Solid Sequel to Qualify 22 agosto 2015
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Heh. The current reviews are all 1 or 5. I don't think either quite on, but I'm 60 years out of the advertised age range. I like the central character, Gwen; bright, capable, some focused talents, and a combination of assertive and insecure. The first book, Qualify, was full of action. The second book is somewhat constrained by taking place in a year-long journey in a space ship, but we get some unexpected action. Also, the year is taken up in training the passengers for their future lives. The Atlanteans emphasize competence over safety, as we saw in Qualify. Some of the tests are - thrilling. The year includes several social events - rather a lot of time is spent on the personal preparation. That part may be more interesting for young ladies than it was for me. But. At one such event an appropriate amount of time was spent on Gwen's performance. If you aren't familiar with the piece, look up a performance and imagine.

So. I liked the book, and parts of it I liked very much. A few parts dragged. The ending was a possibility I thought unlikely, leading up. And it promises a rousing start to the third book, which I eagerly await and expect good things from.

5.0 su 5 stelle A strong sequel to Qualify 15 agosto 2015
Di Cindy C. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Every once in awhile, a story comes along that stays with you long after you've read it for the first time. Even better is when you know the sequel is ready, and it is an equally satisfying read.

If you haven't already read the first book in the Atlantis Grail series, Qualify, you need to. Otherwise, some of Compete will not make sense. And it's a great story, too – the year is 2047, a meteorite of catastrophic proportions is heading toward Earth and our Atlantean cousins, who left the planet a long time ago, have returned to save as many young people as they can. In order to qualify for a place on one of the Atlantean ships, these teens have struggled through training and competition and have earned the right to make the one-year journey to a new solar system and a new life.

For Gwen Lark, that includes a couple of siblings, a boyfriend and the choice of whether or not she will be a cadet in the Atlantean fleet, or a civilian. Compete takes us through that year with her, where she has to confront not just her goals – she still insists she is going to compete in the Grail games when they reach Atlantis in order to save the rest of her family on Earth – but her continued fascination with and attraction to Aeson Kasseopei, hotshot astra daimon pilot, her new commanding officer and boss, and an Imperial Prince, to boot. Yes, she is still standing up to him, and still making him angry, but we see some growth and maturity in her character and a little softening in his as their relationship deepens.

I adore the new characters in this story (including a fop of an Imperial courtier and two office aides for Kass – one snarky and one sweet) and the return of some of the people I grew to know and love in Qualify. It's a good thing when peripheral characters from the first book become more real as the story unfolds, and are central to the continued plot.

Gwen's trials and triumphs aboard the ark ship as it races to her new home made me laugh and cry, and the ending had my jaw dropping to the floor. No real spoilers here, although I could talk all day about the amazing twists and turns in this story. There are Quantum Stream shuttle races, zero-gravity dances, more information about the problems facing Earth (and possibly Atlantis) and new clues as to why Gwen has such a talented voice.

And if you think this is just a novel for young people, think again. I'm the grandmother of one, not some teenaged fan girl, and to me, a good story is a good story. This one, like Qualify, will appeal to all ages. Gwen is easy to identify with on many levels. I'm not so old in spirit that I can't remember what it was like to be her age. Okay, maybe there is a bit of a fan girl in me when it comes to Aeson, And some of the other hot guys on the ship. Just don't tell anyone, all right?

Nazarian's writing, from Gwen's viewpoint, flows easily as we follow the ups and downs of being a teenager, having a gift, a goal and a tenacious personality that sets you apart, and trying to fit in with everyone else. Only to discover that what makes you special is all you really needed in the first place.

3.0 su 5 stelle Much of Much 10 maggio 2016
Di Erani Kole - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

3.7 rating for me.

I loved the first book and the competing streak for survival. This one mostly revolved around their year in space as they fly over to Atlantis. The main character's POV was something to get used to, because she had a very young mind that wasn't as sharp as her intelligence was made to be, making me wonder if she was just extremely dense about things. I liked her head-strong attitude and need to act first and think alter.

However, a lot of this was too much; I kept thinking that a good trimming would've done wonders to the pages, because it was overwhelming to have both her run-on thoughts and an excessive amount of detail. Some things weren't needed to be repeated, and I personally thought that some paragraphs didn't add to the story. There were times when I skimmed pages and still got the main parts and good stuff.

I absolutely loved that I still got to see her in action, but there isn't much she can really do on the ship, aside from learning about the new world. In a way, this was almost like a filler for the main things on Atlantis, but not exactly. The ending was surprising, and yes, it's a cliffhanger. Despite all the skimming I did, I still felt that I got my money's worth. I'm glad I didn't stop at book one.

*spoiler*
I love the chemistry between 'him' and 'her', but I absolutely could not STAND Logan. I disliked him in book one and it drove me mad to see him with her in this book. I'm glad he finally dumped her for panting over Kass because she really needed to be told about the feelings she was too dense to see for herself.
*end of spoiler*

In the end, an almost 4-star is what I rate this and I definitely recommend that people start getting into this series. It's like the Hunger Games but with Atlanteans as the aliens, all dressed up in Egyptian-like fashion.

3.0 su 5 stelle Decent sequel to Qualify 17 giugno 2016
Di Renee715 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

First of all I'm way outside the age group for which this series is targeted but I was drawn into the first book, Qualify, by the premise: a competition to see who will be saved from a giant asteroid threatening the planet. There are definitely times in the series when suspension of disbelief is required. Some of the actions and scenarios seem a bit too implausible. But overall, the plot has me hooked and the author has some really brilliant sections of writing in each of the first two books that bring the story to life, so I will continue with the next one when it comes out.

There are definitely some reveals that have to be coming in the next one based on the comments made by one of the main characters. I'm fairly certain the Atlanteans are not telling the whole story behind why they decided to rescue some of the Earth's younger population. *Spoiler* It will be interesting to see who the "they" are that sent the asteroid to Earth in the first place *End Spoiler*

Overall there are enough surprises to keep me coming back to find out what's going to happen and where the story will lead.

4.0 su 5 stelle Enjoyable story, harder to rate than others 8 gennaio 2017
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This story's plot is one I really enjoyed. It's definitely better than the first one! I think the reason I liked it better was because the character starts maturing and becoming more complex. There's much less, "so yeah,...." And random "like" every where, which was something that really annoyed me in the first book. However, this one increases the italicized words so there is a few every page. I feel like it's a cheap way to relate an impression instead of adjusting the story to be impactful in itself. It also annoyed me quite a bit. Also, I ended up skimming through quite a bit of details because I wasn't convinced that I was missing anything imperative to the story line. At the end, I was right. It's filler details in case you want to hear more about it, but not important to anything down the line, for the most part. It's also a fairly predictable book, high school themed idea.

With that being said, I enjoyed the story line and the fun ideas that unfolded throughout. The character grew, and we saw more complexity with a couple other characters as well. Also, this book seemed to do a better job making characters different than what they did in the first one. I enjoy underdog stories, as I'm sure many young and old do. I like the sci Fi element to it, too. Also, there's nothing too.... Sensually intimate, which I also appreciate. There is one scene of, IDK, almost 3rd base, but only kind of?

I will read the next one when it comes out because I appreciate the development of the story line and the main character. I like the sci Fi and love story of it, and I hope we see more character development and complexity. I would love to see some depth with Laronda, and hear more of how and why Kass is the way he is. I can't wait to see what the Atlantean society and culture and world is like, too!
