ZARCONIAN ISLAND by Aja Hannah - Tour Stop and GIVEAWAY!!

Aja Hannah

My stomach knotted tighter, winding so hard it hurt.
Kate watched me, rubbing a piece of her hair between two fingers.
I bit my tongue, trying to work the words out.
"The boat …we're going under.”

Possessing powers that are feared and shunned, eighteen-year-old Alexandra “Attie” Hotep is no virgin to attacks. Her ancestors, the Zarconians-- mixed-blood inhabitants of Atlantis--were rumored to be the English fairies who kidnapped children, the Caribbean sirens that sunk ships, and the dream-like apparitions who broke into psyches. By the 1850s, they were hunted to near-extinction, leaving the existence of Atlantis and Zarconians little more than myth. 

When a class trip turns deadly, Attie and her friends become stranded on an uncharted tropical island in the middle of the Pacific, and Attie finds herself targeted once more. With a jungle full of extinct and prowling animals, she struggles to find a compromise between keeping her friends safe and keeping her family's secret. 

Enter Doug Hutchinson—the school’s soccer star, and a handsome boy with his own secrets. But Attie and Doug soon realize the animals aren't the only threat. There is a traitor amidst the group, one that plans to turn all Zarconians into permanent myths. And Attie is next on the list.


Youalready know me well enough to know that when I love a book, I basically just fangirl all over it . . .  this review is no exception. 

This book is about Atlantis, hidden vortexes, and lost civilizations. For that fact alone, I loved it before I even began reading! And luckily, once I got into the story, it did not disappoint! 

I loved ZARCONIAN ISLAND! It was a great story with a very unique premise, and characters that were so easy to fall in love with.

Attie was a strong female lead, in a world where strong female leads are uncommon. Her best friend, Kate--though clearly the lighter-spirited of the two--wasn't just a boy-crazy blonde, but the class president, and very intelligent, witty, and loyal. (And believe me--I've been guilty of writing the quirky, boy-crazy blonde best friend a time or two!) 

Doug was a fantastic male lead, who was withdrawn and quiet, but I knew from the get-go how observant and in tune with everything he actually was. Once he set his sights on Attie, he was protective and loyal, and I was so excited to see where things would go!

As for the action and adventure, there were surprises around every turn! I was never bored with this story, and I can't wait to see what comes next for this group of characters! 


Have you read any books about Atlantis or the Bermuda Triangle? I'd love to read more like this one, so leave a comment below with your recommendations (or just your thoughts about this book/review), and I'll pick a random winner for a free e-book of ZARCONIAN ISLAND! 

Sound good!?
