The Seventh Pleiade
This is a book that combines myth, action with underlying ideas of same sex marriage. It rolls all of this into one story. The story was okay, but many times I found my mind wandering. It wasn’t that the writing was bad; it was just that I didn’t find anybody to identify myself with. For someone who can, it might be a fabulous read.
The book is about sixteen-year-old Aerander, who lives in the mythological city of Atlantis. Atlantis is under a dark cloud of evil and is being besieged by armies and battered by storms. When two of Aerander’s cousins go missing, Aerander knows exactly what’s up. When he tries to tell the rest of the city, he is laughed out and loses his honor, after his one piece of evidence disappears. Surrounding all of this are the complex webs of romance and deception.
Throughout all of this, it feels like the book should be exciting and thrilling. At some parts it is. It would be a great book for someone more interested in Atlantis or the myths surrounding it.
