Kevin Emerson’s The Lost Code, first in the Alanteans series, tells the story of a near-future earth ravaged by global climate change. Owen Parker is about to learn that it isn’t the first time the planet has been near destruction. Owen’s ancestors were part of an ancient race whose advanced technology once almost destroyed the world.
With the help of a mysterious, enchanting girl named Lily, Owen will have to understand his history and his genetic code to prevent global annihilation. He will also have to leave the bio-dome that keeps him safe and brave the post-apocalyptic wasteland beyond.
Teens fascinated by the dark dystopian world of Divergent and mythology of the Percy Jackson series will want to read The Lost Code.

Fast paced, good for boys into YA
Full disclosure: I am friends with the author. That being said, I'm really impressed with the summer camp-driven, dystopian world created by Kevin here. The love for his subject matter and the care put into a small, concentrated cast of characters make for a delightful read that combines summer camp with some science-fiction stuff that maybe hits a little too close to home. Young adult fiction often ignores the awkward transition into growing up that boys face, too. Kevin really nails that here, and the kid inside of me really appreciated that. If the lost code never becomes a film, this book will at least create a movie-like feeling your head, for sure.
Very good, can't wait for the sequel to come out. I met the author, he's a funny nice guy. Kevin, if you read this, I'm the kid who plays drums and reads old books. ;) One of the few modern books I enjoyed. Keep it up!
