This is probably the most challenging review I've ever had to write because I have so much to say about A Drowned Kingdom and oh so many notes. I picked this book up after hearing about it through SPFBO and being recommended by a couple of friends. 'A Drowned Kingdom' is about great a great civilisation, with advanced weaponry and engineering, that gets swallowed by the ocean and the story of the outcast survivors?! I couldn't not read it. I named my daughter Atlantis after all!!
