The Knights of the Abyss are still causing chaos in Atlantis. They threatened that if Trey Atlas doesn't relinquish his throne, they'll light the Echinodea--a magical lantern that could expose the island to the entire world. But if Trey steps down, the Knights would take over Atlantis and destroy everything it stands for; including erasing Trey's mysterious past. So there's only one option--get to the Echinodea before the Knights of the Abyss. While on their search for the Echinodea, Trey and his Royal Court meet someone who claims to have the information Trey seeks about his biological family. But the key to the mystery isn't what he hoped it would be. It turns out that the secret in Trey's blood could steal the very throne he fights to protect.

Read information about the authorHow did a boy that hated to read and write end up putting all of his passion into writing? That’s the story of Tom Tancin
Tom didn’t live the typical life of a writer. He HATED to write---and read---throughout elementary and middle school. He never imagined growing up to spend every waking minute thinking about writing or devouring the latest young adult novel. And it wasn’t due to lack of effort on his parents’ part. His mother was--and still is--an avid reader and read to Tom every chance she had. But he wouldn’t have any of it. That’s not to say that Tom didn’t have a vivid imagination--he most certainly did, he just didn’t want to use it to write.
In 1997, when Tom was thirteen years old, he read “Where the Red Fern Grows” in English class and was given the task to do a project based on the book. Tom and his best friend wrote a play based on the book and then a group of their friends performed it for their English class. Their teacher enjoyed it and told Tom and his friend that they should try to write a book. It was the challenge that would change Tom’s life forever.
The two boys spent every afternoon homeroom period working on their very first book. At the same time, Tom’s father was diagnosed with sarcoidosis--a severely damaging lung disease--and given three years to live without a transplant. As their family dealt with the ramifications of waiting for the call that would save his dad’s life, Tom found himself getting lost in worlds and befriending characters that he created. It didn’t take long for writing stories to become a passion for Tom. In 2000, when Tom was 16, his dad received the lung that saved his life.
By the time he graduated high school, Tom had written three books in the Time Warriors Legacy with his best friend Chris Wolf. And while he attended college to become a biology teacher, Tom spent time writing the fourth book in the Time Warriors Legacy and branched out to write a science-fiction novel for adults--Perfection. Even at that point in time, Tom still didn’t enjoy reading for pleasure. But one weekend in the middle of his college years, Tom picked up a suspense book by Erica Spindler. By the end of the weekend, he finished the book and went in search of others by the author. Quickly reading all of her books, Tom looked for other authors and ended up finding the work of James Patterson and other suspense writers.
With his new fascination with suspense books, Tom set out to write one of his own. The product was The Man in the Moon--the first Lindsey Scott Thrillstery. First published in 2007, The Man in the Moon was a sem-finalist in the 2008 Allbooksreview contest. Tom then continued the Lindsey Scott series with a short story, Once Upon a Midnight, and the second book in the series, Watched (2008).
In June 2009, Tom released the first book he wrote, Time Warriors: Induction. But during that summer, Tom’s father grew severely ill from sarcoidosis--the lung disease he’d been battling for many years. His father lost his battle in September 2009 and Tom stopped all writing and publishing ventures with no immediate plans to return.
Luckily, a seed had already been planted. The very early ideas for The Atlantis Revolution were coming together before Tom’s dad died and he stopped writing. Within a year, Tom returned with Hippocampus (The First Book of the Atlantis Revolution)--which he posted on Textnovel, Inkpop, and Authonomy to get feedback. Throughout the rest of 2010 and 2011, Hippocampus garnered acclaim and awards. It was a Textnovel Editor’s Choice and the Semi-finalist in the 2010 Textnovel Contest. The early draft of the book also made it into the top 150 of Inkpop (now Figment). And it received dozens of positive reviews from readers and writers everywhere.
With all of the positive support behind the work, Tom decided to venture back to publishing and, in April 2012, Hippocampus made it to
