Sebasten Oryas is the key to the survival of Atlantis. He just doesn’t know it. How could he, when all around him regard him as cursed and ungifted? So when his great-aunt invites him to spend the holidays away from home, he sees it as a godsend. But not all the Gods have his best interests at heart. And for the Forgotten One, he is a danger who must be stopped. As the summer wears on, Sebasten finds himself drawn into a series of events that will test his survival skills to the limit and open his eyes on a world whose fate is inextricably tied to his own.
The Forgotten Goddess by Olivier Delaye
The Forgotten Goddess is a highly imaginative tale.
The Atlanteans all have gifts and everyone’s gifts are considered good, except one…prophecy. If you have the gift of prophecy you are supposed to be killed. Sebasten Oryas is considered cursed and his mother has told everyone that he has no gift…but Sebasten actually has the one gift that would get him killed. Sebasten’s great aunt, who he never knew existed, invites him for a summer visit with his only friend Sage. Too bad for Sebasten, that he sees his own death before he even leaves to visit his aunt.
The Forgotten Goddess is definitely written for the younger reader or young at heart reader. It is well written with some very interesting characters. The powers of the Atlanteans' were well conceived and extremely original but overall it was a little too young for my reading preferences.
