What is oldest will be new, what was lost shall be found. 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. Kevin Emerson's thrilling novel is Book One of the Atlanteans series—perilous adventures in a grimly plausible dystopian future, fueled by high-stakes action, budding romance, and a provoc-ative question: What would you do if you had the power to save humanity from its own self-destruction?

I enjoyed this. The cover really bothers me-- the girl looks like a total bitch the way she's smirking at the camera. Ugh. But the guy, Owen looks good. Anyways I loved the Atlantis theme, the crazy island, and the dystopian / future aspects of it. Sometimes I'm leery of dystopias because they can b...
There's so much to love about the Lost Code, but I'll try to keep it brief. Owen is an every-boy, not someone that anyone would think is special. Yet as he comes into his own in this dystopian setting you start to see that he really might be the one who can save his world. Add a cute girl and a cree...
Reviewed at http://www.mandikayereads.com/archives/1784 (5/14)I struggled with deciding on a rating for this one. I couldn’t decide between 2 and 3. I thought it was “okay.” It wasn’t bad- it just wasn’t great. I was very much meh the entire time I was reading it- and it felt like a chore to finish ...
