The Atlas Six
The Atlas Six | Olivie Blake
The Alexandrian Society, caretakers of lost knowledge from the greatest civilizations of antiquity, are the foremost secret society of magical academicians in the world. Those who earn a place among the Alexandrians will secure a life of wealth, power, and prestige beyond their wildest dreams, and each decade, only the six most uniquely talented magicians are selected to be considered for initiation. Enter the latest round of six: Libby Rhodes and Nico de Varona, unwilling halves of an unfathomable whole, who exert uncanny control over every element of physicality. Reina Mori, a naturalist, who can intuit the language of life itself. Parisa Kamali, a telepath who can traverse the depths of the subconscious, navigating worlds inside the human mind. Callum Nova, an empath easily mistaken for a manipulative illusionist, who can influence the intimate workings of a person's inner self. Finally, there is Tristan Caine, who can see through illusions to a new structure of reality-an ability so rare that neither he nor his peers can fully grasp its implications. When the candidates are recruited by the mysterious Atlas Blakely, they are told they will have one year to qualify for initiation, during which time they will be permitted preliminary access to the Society's archives and judged based on their contributions to various subjects of impossibility: time and space, luck and thought, life and death. Five, they are told, will be initiated. One will be eliminated. The six potential initiates will fight to survive the next year of their lives, and if they can prove themselves to be the best among their rivals, most of them will.Most of them.

I‘ve been dreading reading this books for weeks, purely because I‘m scared that it won‘t live up to its reviews. -well, that and the fear of ruining this perfect cover…
Can we take a moment to talk about the cover? I have never seen a book cover so exquisitely planned and extraordinarily beautiful. I- god I don‘t think I could ever forgive myself if something were to happen to it.

I have to give props to the author for creating multiple character pov‘s and yet I never had a problem distinguishing between them. All in all, this story has a lot of potential.

I found this on BookTok.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don't even know what to say about this book. It just rambled on and on for 300+ pages. Where was editing here? The writing really was pretentious and flowery.

I wanted to love this because from the synopsis the story seemed made for me. Sadly, it wasn't, and the time I spent reading this is time I can't get back.

Honestly, I don't have much luck with BookTok favorites.

⭐: 1

This book is everything that my inner 16yo craves in one place, and fortunately, considerably older me is just satisfied enough to call it a pick. Despite starting off like a cross b/w Gossip Girl and The Magicians, it quickly settles into something considerably more intriguing & thought-provoking. Very angsty, very dark academia by way of K-Drama, by way of well, the Magicians again. Not loving the sorta-cliffhanger ending though.

Because the problem with knowledge, Miss Rhodes, is its inexhaustible craving. The more of it you have, the less you feel you know," said Atlas.

"Thus, men often go mad in search of it."

Ya'll I don't know what I was expecting. I went in blind and I am absolutely in love with the writing and the different character voices. Fully invested. Can't wait to see where this book takes me.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4,5

"They would fight, tooth and nail, to survive the next year of their lives, and if they were as steadfast and talented as the Society presumed them to be, most of them would. ​
Most of them."

This book kept me reading, kept me wondering, curious how it would end. ?

Enjoying ice cream on the balcony on the last day of my long weekend! One of good things about bookish social media is that you get exposed to books you may not have heard of otherwise! I heard great things about this one so I decided to go for it- and I'm SO glad I did! Take dark academia and then add magic, the Library of Alexandria, and complicated/flawed characters, you get this gem of a tale! I absolutely loved it!

jinxmoon Amazon just recommended the book to me. That‘s twice I‘ve seen it today without ever hearing about it before. I take that as a sign that I need to buy it. 😅 4mo
