    Description

    The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake is the runaway TikTok must-listen fantasy novel of the year. If you loved Ninth House and A Deadly Education, you’ll love this.

    Originally a self-published sensation, this edition has been fully edited and revised.

    Secrets. Betrayal. Seduction.

    Welcome to the Alexandrian Society.

    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, over the course of a year, they’ll survive. Most of them.

    The story continues in The Atlas Paradox, the heart-stopping sequel.

    Painfully artless, begs actual editing

    This should be titled "Her Next Mister" or something equally trite. It is overlong, repetitive, and reads like a fourteen-year old quoting filler episodes of a high school drama. Simply put, it is poorly written and shoddily edited.

    The premise is interesting: A group of six must sacrifice one of their number to gain admittance to a secret society. Sadly, the story consists almost exclusively of stilted dialogue: either childish "will they/won't they" exchanges or puerile sexual advances that make the characters sound like they've never had an actual adult conversation. I suppose this is less conspicuous to someone consuming this chapter by chapter, week by week. Hence, shame on the editor.

    There is virtually no magic in this book. This would not be problem, except that it is part of the central conceit of the plot. Then again, in this book, virtually nothing happens. The entire story boils down to: There is a cast of laughably generic characters, who are occasionally in the same room, and the evil masterminds are tangentially related to them. The evil mastermind is bad, the other is not. That is all that happens.

    Some bad readers

    The story is okay-not as amazing as people have been saying, but interesting enough. The book ends on not one, but several cliffhangers, but the biggest issue are the narrators.

    There are several, one for each POV character. None are amazing, but most are okay. Two are really bad. Stressing sentences incorrectly, running things together so it's hard to follow who's speaking in a dialog, and/or just grating and annoying at times.

    I would have enjoyed this much more with better narrators. (Or evert just one, if they were good.)
