Life altering reality, hidden in plain sight. Ralph has a problem. The Grand Council of Atlantis, the council who rules the twelve hominid tribes, has chosen his apprentice for him. This unusual move has one obstacle. She doesn’t know what it means to be Atlantean. Cerita Guzman is the oldest child in a struggling, single parent home. She doesn’t have time for world shattering reality to interfere with life. She has work, school, siblings, her mom, the house and now, of all things, Atlantis wants her time too. How is that even possible? James has lived among the homo-sapiens, on the surface, for most of his life. He’s training though, to serve his people in Atlantis. His heart is torn when his master knight requests him to bring in the young woman selected by the Grand Council to train with him. She’s in a lot of his classes. She’s beautiful. She’s human. When Atlantis calls, he listens. As Cerita resists the call to serve Atlantis, James must find a way to help her accept the truth about the world around her, about herself. He does. He forces her to activate her internal nanites. She’s forced to accept whole new hominid species exist. If that’s not enough, she’s also forced to accept she’s one of them, when her nanites come to life, and she opens a wormhole into space. Join Cerita, James, and Ralph on the first adventure into the world of Atlantis. Knight’s of the Immortals is a Young Adult Scifi – Adventure that’s loved by readers of all ages.

In The Knight’s Apprentince, we meet Cerita Guzman. According to the book synopsis, she’s a typical teen with all the responsibilities of an oldest child, in a struggling single parent household. Her grades are always high, and she makes it to work everyday to help with the bills. Mornings are filled with coffee, siblings, and school. This straight-A student knows her stuff, but all of that is turned upside down one night as she walks home from the store.
In something that adds to the book’s action, according to the synopsis, after stumbling across a final rite preformed by a man in a suit of armor, she is faced with the evidence that proves she's not entirely what she believes she is. Her best friend, a classmate, and this knight become her teachers as she learns to accept who she really is, and maybe find love and adventure along the way.
This novel is great for dreamers, for those that have somewhat wondered what else is out there and what their lives are all about. In the book, once Cerita starts to discover what she’s meant for, we see her character truly develop and open up into this magical existence that she never thought possible.
The story is truly a lovely coming-of-age story, with a paranormal twist. The book is mysterious with its delivery, a page turner that keeps you wondering what will happen next and will have you itching for the next installment in the series.
Make sure to pick up this book before the end of the summer and add it to your TBR. You won’t be disappointed.
