A Power Long Maintained - Now Faded, A Secret Long Kept - Soon Unveiled, A City Long Lost - Ready to Be Found.I actually chided myself after reading it since the next book would come in a week since I ordered from online. #firstworldproblems Book two: City of Gold came in a few days later and I was so excited with the continuing adventure, Eldorado, the Beast, and Cody. By the way, the black hog looking thing is the beast and he is super cool. If he's not trying to murder you. Chasing you. Smelling and tracking your flesh.
//SynopsisThe war has begun. A millennium of growing tension between Atlantis and El Dorado has erupted into violent conflict. Amidst a world in chaos, Cody Clemenson must piece together his own shattered existence. His best friend, Jade, the only constant in his life, has been ripped away and it's entirely his fault. Getting her back will not be easy. The dreaded Golden King's ultimatum is clear: seven days. When the light vanishes on the final day, Jade will be rescued or dead. Cody must band together with a rag-tag company and venture across the treacherous wastelands battling monsters, soldiers, and the brutal elements in order to infiltrate El Dorado and confront the powerful King.
But Cody will soon discover that in the Golden City things are never as they seem; his closest friends may not be his allies and his enemies may not be his most dangerous threat.
The clock is ticking...
