Look what arrived for me yesterday at the library! I go a lot, sometimes more than once a week. My roommate thinks that is crazy. But hey, its only four blocks away! And I bet the librarians would miss me and my sweaty neon running clothes (all workout wear should be neon, FYI.)
The Immortal Rules! Julie Kagawa's new book looks awesome. Just in case you have been under a rock, it a dystopian future where vampires rule the world..and our protagonist becomes one! But she has to hid it as she tries to keep her humanity. There are mysteries! and people on the run! and a love interest who doesn't know she is a vamp!
So the cover to The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson looks pretty CHEESE-TASTIC but the review at Forever Young Adult was over-the-moon happy so I am trying this Atlantis magic meets summer camp YA:
The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth's history. No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race--a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.
Now it is Owen's turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry . . . and that "less-than-ordinary" can evolve into "extraordinary." (Good Reads)
