Secrets of the Mine

Welcome, Gates of Atlantis fans! I'm so excited to introduce you to some of my characters from book 4 in the series.

Gates of Atlantis: Secrets of the Mine starts with fourteen year old Adam Jackson, a geeky guy who is more comfortable with mythology books than actual people.

Adam
He has to spend his summer at a dig with his mom, who's an archeologist, at an ancient mine in Zimbabwe. He's not so crazy about the idea, but his mom bribes him with the promise of scuba diving. He takes a wrong turn underwater and meets Nef, a spirited and temperamental sea kelpie. They accidentally save each other, and a friendship is born. Nef is on a mission to rescue his missing companion, a naiad named Kleo.

Nef  
Another reason to hate being at the dig: Clancy Pitt. She's his age and couldn't be more opposite (or more annoying) if he paid her. She's everything he isn't...logical, ambitious, and she actually wants to be there at the dig with her parents. Adam and Clancy would rather avoid each, but they stumble upon something that links the mine with the lost city of Atlantis as well as the missing naiad. 

Clancy

Kleo
Once the minions find them, the chase is on the find Kleo and get to the gate before they're captured...or worse. 

Thanks for dropping by, friends! Check our Gates of Atlantis facebook page tomorrow to meet the characters in book 5!

Aisi's Play List

I keep thinking about what music might show up on Aisi's ipod if she were a real person.  My littlest kid has been asking me lately what I thought certain TV characters' theme songs might be  (if you are obsessive about Gilmore Girls, let's chat--Littlest has come up with songs for each of Rory's BFs and Lorelei in each season.) With this in mind, every time a song comes on the radio lately I think, "ooh, Aisi would totally listen to this!" So I decided to share it.

Demons by Imagine Dragons (obviously!)
Shatter Me by Lindsey Stirling and Lzzy Hale
Dark Side by Kelly Clarkson
Middle by Jimmy Eat World
Peponi by The Piano Guys and Alex Boye
I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons (this is Vance's theme--you'll see why about halfway through Freaked)
Home by Phillip Phillips (the Turay family theme)
Immortals by Fall Out Boy

Did I miss anything?
