Waiting On Wednesday: Fifteen

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: The Lost Code (The Atlanteans #1)
Author: Kevin Emerson
Publication Date: 22 May 2012
Summary (courtesy of goodreads.com):
WHAT IS OLDEST WILL BE NEW, WHAT IS LOST SHALL BE FOUND.

The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth’s history.

No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.

Now it is Owen’s turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry…and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary.
I haven't read many books with male protagonists in recent memory, except for Anna Dressed in Blood, which I didn't even finish (which wasn't even the male protagonist's fault).  So I think it will a good way to branch out from my normal reads.  Also, I've always felt a special kinship with the ozone layer since I was born the same year that the GIANT HOLE was discovered (or at least the year they announced that a GIANT HOLE was discovered).  I seriously doubt the ozone has a whole lot to do with the actual storyline of this book, but hey, they brought it up, not me.

  6. Gorgeous cover. :) I love male protagonists (a bit tired of continuously reading about females, I suppose!)

  7. Male protagonists are so refreshing :D They have a different view, so this one sounds good to me. And I love a bit of mystery: breaking codes and stuff like that.
