BLOG TOUR STOP! Resisting Atlantis by Jamie Canosa


BE SURE TO ENTER THE RESISTING ATLANTIS 
GIVEAWAY BELOW

Resisting Atlantis is definitely different than the other books I’ve read from Jamie Canosa, but in the best possible way. This book proves Canosa can write about pretty much anything. Her characters Cameron and Kaden face a lot of obstacles, which provide an intense action filled book. These obstacles involve their personal relationship and the resistance they both fight for. Resisting Atlantis has so many great things to keep any reader entertained. I think the ultimate theme in the book is trust. Characters are told one thing but challenged with another possible truth. Cameron and Kaden are two people who lead with their heads but have to learn to trust their hearts when dealing each other.

The story has excellent pace from the very beginning. Jamie Canosa manages to make a stranger showing up at Cameron’s doorstep with a wild story believable. I didn’t doubt the explanation that was given because of Canosa’s delivery. Readers will be thrown into a world that is historically infamous like Atlantis and most importantly be entertained by a carefully laid out story that will keep you guessing until the end.

Summary:

Cora is your average college freshman. Battling the evils of boring classes and noisy dorms, her greatest concern is how to attract the attention of the drool-worthy, party-god next door.

That is, until Kaden comes barging into her life, insisting everything she knows is false. The family and friends she grew up with don’t exist. Her entire past a carefully crafted fabrication, created to replace the truth.

Her name isn’t Cora it’s Cameron. And she isn’t from New York. She hails from Atlantis. Yeah, that Atlantis. Oh yeah, and she’s psychic.

Crazy, right?

Except, tall, dark, and out-of-his-ever-loving-mind doesn’t come alone. Trouble follows, thrusting Cameron back into a world she can’t remember and a life she must reclaim if they’re going to make it out alive. Cora is your average college freshman.

Cameron is a young woman who is constantly developing for readers. When we find her she has no memories of her past, she discovers these memories along side the readers. Her memories are written in a unique way I’ll get into in a bit, but I thought of her memories as another character in the story. Cameron is a very complicated and fun character. She exudes capability but has an ongoing lingering doubt when it comes to the expectation of others. She struggles with who she’s told she is and who she is becoming now. In her life before her memory swap she was a great leader and takes a back seat to this role when Kaden and the people of the resistance have to retrain her.

This leads me to Kaden who also takes on a different role than what the past reveals. He was actually trained by Cameron and now because of her inability to completely remember her past has to take on the role of leader. His battle seems with himself because he used to be more of a risk taker before Cameron’s disappearance and when he gets her back he’s a bit more careful in his actions on the field when fighting with the resistance and especially with Cameron. He carries a lot of guilt because he blames himself for Cameron’s disappearance and its heartbreaking when he has to watch her experience her old memories.

Because Canosa’s characters past and present lives were brought to the table I got a bigger story than expected. It just kept growing, and growing with every secret revealed which I feel readers will be insanely entertained by. Jamie Canosa’s is talented at writing dual perspectives but surprised me even more in Resisting Atlantis. She was able to give me multiple perspectives using Cameron’s memories. Cameron is capable of seeing a memory through someone else’s mind. This concept is what made the story so incredible for me. It caused me as the reader to see Cameron and Kaden through the eyes of others and it brought great conflict for them.

Cameron and Kaden’s relationship is fantastic. They are drawn to each other because of their pasts and have a sincere sense of loyalty to each other. Readers will enjoy how these two get to reconnect and rediscover their feelings for each other. They face SO much together that by the end of the book I just could't believe how far they had come. They have a tough battle ahead of them and a certain scene at the end was incredible to read, very heart wrenching.

 Resisting Atlantis is a big story with a lot of carefully laid out plots that will no doubt keep readers entertained. It has strong attachable characters that will have audiences picking their favorite. I highly recommend any book by Jamie Canosa but Resisting Atlantis is something different if readers are searching for that special read.
