The Emerald TabletGenre: Sci-Fi, Fantasy

Leoros doesn’t have many friends. The son of a scientist and archeologist, he is constantly on the move. But when his parents make a startling discovery in Egypt, Leoros’ world is turned upside down.

Do you wish you could have the power of a god? Would you use it for good…or for evil?

When an archaeologist discovers the mythic Emerald Tablet buried beneath Egypt’s desert, her son decodes the ancient text leading him to a distant world.

On that world, a slave girl begins a journey towards a destiny she cannot imagine. But when an ancient foe rises from the ashes, they will be brought together by forces neither understands.

Leoros, who dreams of being like the heroes in the comic books, must fight to unlock the secrets of the universe to save a people he never knew existed.

Atlantia, whose bloody visions wake her in the night, senses the darkness coming.

Together they will face an enemy with the power of dark energy, lose a mentor to the assassin’s blade, and be betrayed by someone they trust. Their fight for the future is just beginning, and before it is over, a final sacrifice must be made. When the darkness comes, will they stand and fight or will they join it?

There is darkness in everyone.

My review:

I love sci-fi fantasy and I love mythology. This book is made for people like me. The plot is fantastic, the characters are many and wonderfully developed. Everything is written in the present tense and in the first person. I know that turns some people off but it really held my attention, I kind of liked it that way. I really enjoyed this book. Leoros is a great YA lead. His journey is a fantastical one.   The only issue I had is even though the plot follows a typical YA plot and the main character is 13, the book has more of an adult feel. I am not sure because of the adult content that I would recommend it to anyone under the age of 15.

I really recommend this to anyone that really liked the Percy Jackson series.
