When the world’s best magicians are offered an extraordinary opportunity, saying yes is easy. Each could join the secretive Alexandrian Society, whose custodians guard lost knowledge from ancient civilizations. Their members enjoy a lifetime of power and prestige. Yet each decade, only six practitioners are invited – to fill five places.

Contenders Libby Rhodes and Nico de Varona are inseparable enemies, cosmologists who can control matter with their minds. Parisa Kamali is a telepath, who sees the mind’s deepest secrets. Reina Mori is a naturalist who can perceive and understand the flow of life itself. And Callum Nova is an empath, who can manipulate the desires of others. Finally, there’s Tristan Caine, whose powers mystify even himself.

Following recruitment by the mysterious Atlas Blakely, they travel to the Society’s London headquarters. Here, each must study and innovate within esoteric subject areas. And if they can prove themselves, for a year, they’ll survive. Most of them.

I recently finished reading The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake and I must say, I was blown away by this book. From start to finish, it kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t put it down.

The story follows six prodigies from different parts of the world who are invited to join a secret society called The Atlas Six. They each possess unique abilities and are brought together to complete a dangerous mission. But as they uncover more about the society and its intentions, they start to question everything and must decide where their loyalties lie.

What I loved most about this book was the diverse and complex characters. Each of the six members of The Atlas Six had their own distinct personalities and backgrounds, and it was fascinating to see how they interacted with each other. I also appreciated that the author didn’t shy away from addressing important issues such as mental health and discrimination.

The world-building in this book was also fantastic. The author created a unique and intricate world that was both magical and futuristic. It was easy to get lost in this world and imagine myself as one of the members of The Atlas Six.

The plot was full of twists and turns, keeping me guessing until the very end. I loved how the author weaved in elements of mystery and suspense, making this book a thrilling and engaging read. The pacing was also well-done, with a perfect balance of action and slower moments to build tension.

Overall, I highly recommend The Atlas Six to fans of young adult fantasy and sci-fi. It’s a gripping and thought-provoking read that will leave you wanting more. I can’t wait to see what Olivie Blake has in store for us next.
