Book reviews for The Atlas Six

“I love everything about this book! None of the characters are inherently good, and all have flaws that make their personalities interesting. I love reading about smart and powerful characters who are confident in their abilities and have a strong desire to dominate. This is one of the more complex fantasy books I’ve read in a while.”― Libbyanais “Yes! This has everything I absolutely love. The suspense and the deep characters. The ‘mental’ magic system and the stakes. I am obsessed now. 😍”― Jennifer“Im so in love with this book actually! I loved the multi pov, how we get to see each other’s perspective on the world and the Society, what knowledge really is for each of them, and what I liked the most about it, I think, is that we get to see how they perceive each other. Its beautifully written, the construction of the magical world seems exquisite to me, I’ve felt like every power was based on a scientific basis and therefore very credible.”― rut“I had a blast with this dark academic, competitive, don’t know who to root for/trust, fantastical story, and I can’t wait to read the sequel! So original and thought-provoking.”― thestoriedblog
