Description

The Games are Forever!

It’s one thing to Qualify and Compete…

Now she must Win.

Gwen Lark, nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl, is among the lucky ones. She’s one of several million teenage refugees to escape the extinction-level asteroid barreling towards Earth and reach the ancient colony planet of Atlantis.

But Atlantis is a strange new world with higher gravity and a blazing white sun, where nothing is as expected. The new arrivals from Earth will now belong to the majority class of non-citizens who face a lifetime of hard work and limited rights.

To make matters worse, Gwen’s rare and powerful talent, her Logos voice, is viewed as a potential weapon to be exploited by the Imperator, as well as a threat to the Kassiopei Imperial Dynasty and its uncompromising control over the people of Atlantis.

A last-minute heartbreak prior to arrival turns to joy, when Gwen receives a declaration of love from an unexpected source. The Wedding date is set, but before she can be joined with her true love, she is forced to compete in the brutal and deadly Games of the Atlantis Grail to save herself, her family, friends, and everything she cares about. Once again, her intelligence, quick thinking skills, resilience, and creativity are challenged to the breaking point.

The Games are monumental, intricate, lethal . . . and the Games are Forever.

This time Gwen must fight and figure her way through the most difficult and sophisticated contest she has ever faced. Terrifying Ordeals and impossible Challenges, ruthless skilled Competitors, vicious secret assassins, and dubious teammates she must work with but cannot trust, are just the beginning. . . .

Meanwhile, as the Games rage, the fate of two worlds is at stake as a new alien threat looms over Earth and Atlantis.

But Gwen Lark has a secret weapon of her own. It’s not her Logos voice and its untapped power to control orichalcum technology and perpetuate change.

It is Gwen herself.

WIN is the third book in The Atlantis Grail series.

    Finally this book is out! It feels like forever since I finished Compete and have waiting for the continuation of the story! Win is the third book in the Atlantis Holy Grail series. If you are looking for a well written dystopian book series, and liked the Hunger Games series, this is a good one to read. You can read this as a standalone book but I would not recommend it. You really need to read the books in order. Win begins where Compete ended and it ends in a cliffhanger for the next book. There is a lot of violence. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. The author has done a good job of describing The world and people of Atlantida (the new Atlantis). The characters are multidimensional and well written, even if you don't like them (such as the Archaeon Imperator). The world the author has created and vivid, and makes it easy to picture in your mind. As usual, everything and everyone are not as they seem. While this is a long book, at over 900 pages, you get so caught up in the story and don't want it to end. Now I have to try to be patient while waiting for the author to publish the next book in the series.
  • Super suspenseful!

    The story transitions very smoothly from the previous books, with new surprises coming to light! I couldn't wait to know what happened next and hardly got any sleep due to nerves! My only critique is the author being too detailed over things of little importance and sometimes sweeping over more important events quicker than I'd like. Also—and the main reason I rated a 4 and not 5—we were promised this book February 2016... not very fair to the readers! (I suppose the length makes up for it, but I digress). I hope the next book doesn't come out as slow as this one did!!

    I love this series so much! I read through this book trying to hurry and know but also savor every minute I have. I read the first parts on watt pad and I figured it would give us everything it did. I felt like I was there in the games with Gwen. I felt terror and worry. I felt nervous every time a big competitor would come. How Gwen does what she does is amazing. Beautiful writing and a surprising twist at the end.
  • Another amazing read!

    I have to say, this was kind of hard to adapt to. I personally loved Compete and this was just another side of Kass I wasn't expecting and it took some getting used to. Win is a better version of Qualify and I really enjoyed it. Now to waiting for Survive!
  • Loved It!
