Twelve-year-old Alessia has just returned to start her second school year in the Lost City of Atlantis, when the underwater nation is gripped by some ominous news.
A prisoner responsible for one of the worst attacks in Atlantis history has escaped, and Alessia suspects her fugitive, evil mother is involved. With the help of her schoolfriends, Alessia will have to interrogate some pretty reluctant merfolk, break into the underwater world's most secure prison, and master her newly-found mind-control power to find and stop her mother before the escaped convict finishes what he had started.
But the more Alessia uses her power, the more she realises that this power comes with a sinister cost...
The second book in the riveting new series that fans of Keeper of the Lost Cities and Percy Jackson can't put down.

this was a strong sequel in the Alessia in Atlantis, I had enjoyed the previous book. Nathalie Laine has a great knack for writing a good young adult novel. This was a great adventure with an interesting take on Atlantis. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and get back to their world. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Laine and more from this universe. Overall this was a great fun ride.
"Her mind raced to find the best strategy as her assailant kept jostling her ahead, marching her blindly through the school. She’d mind-controlled seaweed-constrictor before. She could loosen the bag, but the attacker would still be there. Could she mind-control the two at once?"
A wonderful follow-on to Volume 1 of the Atlantis series by this new author. There is still the rapid pace action that middle schoolers will love, but also thoughtfully introduced moral issues that should trigger, “What would I do?” thinking among the young readers. Loved this. Highly recommend.
I loved the first book (The Forbidden Vial) and I loved even more The Jellyfish Jailbreak. The character development is particularly strong in the second book. It is full of adventures, friendships, mysteries, surprising twists, magical creatures. The reader is transported in this underwater world which is cleverly described. I strongly recommend this book.
