More About This Title Atlantis Star


Atlantis Star is a captivating dual-time novel that readers aged 8-14 will love. Uniting elements of mythology, wildlife and environmental issues in one gripping story, Imogen Tovey has created an alternative Atlantis; a mythical city where dolphins and humans live side-by-side in harmony, protecting a powerful secret, the Atlantis Star.

Growing up on Atlantis was perfect; the children and dolphins had loads of fun together, but the secret they were hiding eventually destroyed the city, which plunged beneath the waves. Now centuries have passed and the modern world has largely forgotten how it used to be, apart from a few humans who are determined to track down the powerful Atlantis Star – and who will do anything to find it. Jacob Eldis and his father travel to the Bahamas to spy on Maddy and CJ and their dolphin, Indigo, all descendents of the last Atlantans, hoping that they’ll lead them to the fabled Atlantis Star.

As Jacob struggles with loyalty to his father, and CJ and Maddy begin to understand what is at stake, a story of great adventure and danger unfolds...


Imogen Tovey worked as a police officer for 25 years in both London and Bristol. Her passion is dolphins – which first came about during an encounter with one in the Bahamas. Since that she has sought out more dolphin experiences around the world, and wants to share her love of them with her readers.


Atlantis Star tells the story of a young boy, Jacob who manipulates his peers and even gets his teacher fired from his job! You'd think that he wasn't a very nice child, but really he's just trying to be the son which his father has always wanted. Unloved by his father and with no other family to support him, Jacob struggles to be the child he really is. Being taken away from boarding school in England on his father's mission to locate the mysterious Atlantis Star has the potential to change everything. Two children, one with an extraordinary ability to speak to dolphins have the potential to alter Jacob's life forever. But can they?
This is a lovely enjoyable children's book which even as an adult is enjoyable. I absolutely love the bond between humans and dolphins in this book and though at times it's quite a sad book, the ending will leave you with a big smile on your face. The quest for Atlantis and Jacob's journey to self-discovery is beautifully written by Tovey. The book is an amazing adventure with danger and intrigue around every corner. This book is well worth a read, especially to share with younger ones!

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review . . . so a very big thank you to them and here is my review of this brilliant book:

Anyone who loves the idea of dolphins being able to mind link and work in partnership with humans will love this dramatic adventure story - even if it is aimed at 8 to 14 year olds! It is told in two timelines of events which unfold to explain what happened to the lost city of Atlantis and how special humans and dolphins are able to work together for the good of everyone. I really enjoyed this story and the author's style of writing. It has a good pace, great characters and events, with relationships that are credible between them, together with lots of intrigue, danger as well as mystery. I will certainly be looking out for other books by this author!
