The End is Here, in a Fiery Cosmic Apocalypse!
It's one thing to Qualify, Compete, and Win...
The time has come to Survive.
The Games of the Atlantis Grail have come to a ground-shaking halt and Gwen Lark, nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl, survived the remarkable ordeal, for the time being.
But the worst is yet to come!
Now, both the colony planet Atlantis and Earth are under a threat of annihilation, and everything is up in the air, including dire and stunning wonders in the Atlantean skies.
Will there be a Wedding? Will there be a future for Gwen Lark, her beloved, and all their families, friends, and loved ones?
Is Gwen’s rare and powerful talent, the Logos voice of creation, enough to resolve the greatest mystery of the Kassiopei Imperial Dynasty and its role in the events of deepest antiquity since the dawn of time?
The fate of the entire human species is at stake, and now there can be no respite, not a moment to lose. The final battle is here, and Gwen, and everyone she knows and loves, are in for the greatest fight of their lives.
It is time to survive.
SURVIVE is the fourth and final book in The Atlantis Grail series, now an international cross-genre phenomenon, optioned for film.

There were whole chunks of the book that seemed pointless and tedious, sections where I skipped pages looking for some actual action or character development.
It also felt like whilst we had a whole host of characters, once their main part was done, they became just another name to add in, with no real exploration or addition to the plot.
And finally the plot, whilst interesting at points, was relegated to a side show or else forgotten for large chunks of the book. Nothing seemed to work together, there were just events that happened without any cohesion.
I wish Gwen had been more Shoe lace girl and less Imperial Bride.
hoping the final instalment would be as good, considering it was way past it’s due date. Unfortunately, this was not the case. It was way too long and full of chapters devoted to topics which could have been covered in a couple of pages. In the first few chapters a long and very boring explanation of what I think is probably quantum physics. I came here for a story. Education I can find elsewhere. Then later a very silly and boring part on Manala’s cat. I see why, but again too long and boring (this girls has Asbergers, why has no one noticed?)Also the descriptive pieces about the wedding went on for ever. Too much. Not necessary. And then the bit about the Pegasus tapped in the other dimension. Again, too long, as is it the the last bit about “ lost in space”. The solution felt like, ok how quickly can I wrap this up? like the author had become bored with the whole thing . Not surprised. I was. All the lose ends wrapped up at sprint speed, then an epilogue? Turns out Gwen and Aeson live happily ever after in domestic bliss and she writes her memoirs. What a surprise. A lot of this story I kept waiting for something dramatic to happen, but really not much did. So yes, disappointing.
The writing has never been great but the fast paced story made it easy to ignore the faults. This book is sooooo long and drawn out that it becomes painful and the writer's 'quirks' are much more noticeable, and a lot more annoying. The odd italics, over-descriptive passages, bizarre phrasing, and the repetition kept jolting me out of the story. The narration is really irritating - why does a 'geek' who is entrusted with writing an account of the journey to Atlantis, have such trouble stringing a coherent sentence together? And how does she manage to know how everyone else is feeling (usually two emotions at once) at all times? And why does she describe herself as if she is an observer? I have never been especially aware of my eyes widening, or my mouth opening but it's hard not to picture a goldfish when Gwen reacts (to anything at all).
The plot was so-so but there was a lot of focus on very unimportant side-plots (presumably so that the various pointless romance threads could be shoved in). Secondary characters that had been likeable in earlier books spent most of this one standing around doing nothing. Was Gwen the only person who made friends and had interests over the past year and a half? Why doesn't her sister have an actual birthday party of her own?
I struggled through because I was mildly curious about the end. It was decidedly not worth it. Such a pity - the first three books were addictive and fun and I think there was a decent story in this one. It just needs a lot more work and an editor who knows their business. I won’t be reading any more.
I dont do spoilers, so...... Each book ends on a cliff hanger, if you are new to the series , then you are in luck, you dont have to wait while the next instalment is written, and I was checking every day to see if it was available. I am NOT a teenager, (I wish!), and I dont actually care if its Dystopian, makes no difference to me! What I care about is a well written tale, where the characters are lifelike, and relate able, and the tale makes sense. Vera Nazarian has the ability to use words the way Monet used a paint brush, the images her words evoke in my imagination are life like and the tale flows as easily, and tensely as a multi Oscar award winning film. I downloaded the book at about midnight, here in the UK on its release, and went to bed at 3.30 am, as my eyes refused to focus any more, then when I woke, I was straight back in, completely ignoring the family for the whole day and then bed, and finally finished within an hour of waking the next day. This is a LONG book, over a hundred chapters, and though I am a speed reader it still took me 18 hrs of non stop reading to finish. It was worth every single second! And then I went back and did a more leisurely re-read, and still enjoyed it as much as I did the first time round a few days ago. This is a series I will return to again and again, the complexities of Robert Jordan, the wit of David Eddings and the Vision of Terry Pratchett, Vera is an excellent story teller who has even been quoted by non other than Chuck Norris!
