The Games are Forever!
It’s one thing to Qualify and Compete…
Now she must Win.
Gwen Lark, nerd, geek, and awkward smart girl, is among the lucky ones. She’s one of several million teenage refugees to escape the extinction-level asteroid barreling towards Earth and reach the ancient colony planet of Atlantis.
But Atlantis is a strange new world with higher gravity and a blazing white sun, where nothing is as expected. The new arrivals from Earth will now belong to the majority class of non-citizens who face a lifetime of hard work and limited rights.
To make matters worse, Gwen’s rare and powerful talent, her Logos voice, is viewed as a potential weapon to be exploited by the Imperator, as well as a threat to the Kassiopei Imperial Dynasty and its uncompromising control over the people of Atlantis.
A last-minute heartbreak prior to arrival turns to joy, when Gwen receives a declaration of love from an unexpected source. The Wedding date is set, but before she can be joined with her true love, she is forced to compete in the brutal and deadly Games of the Atlantis Grail to save herself, her family, friends, and everything she cares about. Once again, her intelligence, quick thinking skills, resilience, and creativity are challenged to the breaking point.
The Games are monumental, intricate, lethal . . . and the Games are Forever.
This time Gwen must fight and figure her way through the most difficult and sophisticated contest she has ever faced. Terrifying Ordeals and impossible Challenges, ruthless skilled Competitors, vicious secret assassins, and dubious teammates she must work with but cannot trust, are just the beginning. . . .
Meanwhile, as the Games rage, the fate of two worlds is at stake as a new alien threat looms over Earth and Atlantis.
But Gwen Lark has a secret weapon of her own. It’s not her Logos voice and its untapped power to control orichalcum technology and perpetuate change.
It is Gwen herself.

Writing is excellent and the story is really very strong indeed. I love all the fantasy elements – they are extremely well considered… something really special. I know 6-year-olds and 60-year-olds who would enjoy this! (Lucy Cuthew, author)
A charming and exciting story, and I was impressed by all sorts of things, including the voice of the novel, handling of the structure, and the emerging plot. (Writer’s Workshop)
The White Island is a fantastical middle-grade children’s story about Gopi, a hapless soldier tasked by his Queen with a quest to save the Island. Gopi must cross an ocean, battle a sea dragon and deliver the heir to the White Island to the Upper World until he is ready to return and fight for his legacy.
Eleven years later and Nana tells her grandson Jag the story of the White Island and how it sunk to the bottom of the sea. Jag soon realises that there is more to his history than he has been told.
On his eleventh birthday, Jag’s world is turned upside down. He is sent to live with his Nana in India, but he never makes it. Instead Jag arrives in a very different place, one which has always been his destiny – a destiny that it is now time for him to fulfil.
