Qualify by Vera Nazarian Book Summary

THE ATLANTIS GRAIL has been optioned for development as a feature film series and/or TV series.

You have two options. You die, or you Qualify.

The year is 2047. An extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and the descendants of ancient Atlantis have returned from the stars in their silver ships to offer humanity help.

But there's a catch.

They can only take a tiny percent of the Earth's population back to the colony planet Atlantis. And in order to be chosen, you must be a teen, you must be bright, talented, and athletic, and you must Qualify.

Sixteen-year-old Gwenevere Lark is determined not only to Qualify but to rescue her entire family.

Because there's a loophole.

If you are good enough to Qualify, you are eligible to compete in the brutal games of the Atlantis Grail, which grants all winners the laurels, high tech luxuries, and full privileges of Atlantis Citizenship. And if you are in the Top Ten, then all your wildest wishes are granted... Such as curing your mother's cancer.

There is only one problem.

Gwen Lark is known as a klutz and a nerd. While she's a hotshot in classics, history, science, and languages, the closest she's come to sports is a backyard pool and a skateboard.

This time she is in over her head, and in for a fight of her life, against impossible odds and world-class competition--including Logan Sangre, the most amazing guy in her school, the one she's been crushing on, and who doesn't seem to know she exists.

Because every other teen on Earth has the same idea.

You Qualify or you die.

Tf do you know how music works. How many people in the world legitimately have perfect pitch? In a school of 2000 students, there are 10 or 20 at most. In your book, you say that a full 10% can tell exactly what notes a guy is singing, and also how to exactly replicate those notes. Have you ever played music before? I sincerely hope you haven’t, because that would make you a disgrace to the musical community

Excellent. Well written and great read no matter your age. Could not stop reading it! Looking forward to reading next book.

Good read. The beginning of a good tale, but a little low on “Space”

Amazing. I cannot even tell you how much I love this book. I've read it and its sequel twice in 4 days. It's all I can think about. Great writing, strong characters, steamy male lead, exciting plot...I can't believe it was free! Wow. 5 stars.

One of the best books ever!!. Captivating from the beginning! Gwen Lark if an awesome heroine! I bought every book

Love love love. I am totally in love with this series. I could read it over and over again and not get tired of it. I can not wait until this comes out in the movies. I have been following this series since Wattpad and look forward to the next step.

Of hardcore porn, bad physics and cook books. This author can definitely get her ideas across and tell an interesting story, with good dialog. But.. First off, I’m not sure this story needs to be told. While this isn’t porn in any traditional sense, the subject matter is similar in one way: it’s often said that while it’s hard to define what porn is, one knows it when they see it. The subject matter in this book, trying to justify homicide for ANY reason, simply is should not be written. Then the author goes on and glorifies it by making it a world wide media event... The end of the world is at hand, lets watch our kids kill each other... It cheapens life and desensitizes the reader to it. Recent books like Hunger Games exploit this fact. But this book takes it to a whole new hard core pornographic level. It’s simply wrong. The second thing that’s bothersome about this book are the so-called “good” aliens that are going to rescue a million or so teenagers from an end of the world scenario. Frankly the author just uses them to implement her homicide games, but doesn’t go into the social or political reasons why those games are necessary or supported by the rest of the world. In reality this could be considered an invasion story where the earthlings become slaves to the aliens every desire. It’s very interesting that the 1962 Twilight Zone episode “To Serve Man” and their great cook book was not referenced here. And finally, this book provides more evidence that the ability to teach high school physics continues to degrade. I’m perfectly willing to suspend belief on advanced technology, only so long as it’s used in a logical and consistent way. The hover boards play a big part in this story, and the authors only technical fact is that they can lift 17 tons each. After which she goes all girly and avoids any math in the rest of the story, or really exploit the technology that allows them to work. Later in the story, one million hover boards are used in the final race.. My objection here is that this is a huge resource that could have been used to alter the course of the killer asteroid. In the worst case is that Ceres, which is 1/3 the total mass of all the rocks in the asteroid belt, could have been moved well over half the diameter of the earth in the 18 months from when it was discovered, using just these hover boards. Since the aliens also have thousands of space craft, and most asteroid are 1000’s of times smaller than Ceres, one could conceivably believe that the aliens don’t have the best interest of earthlings in mind. My guess is that the aliens think earthlings are fun to watch kill each other, and the young fit ones they harvest from the earth will taste good. This is a horror story..

Just get some glue!. And glue your iPad to your fingers till you are done. Trust me when I say, you're not going to want to put the book down once you start so use some glue and use it as an excuse not too! Fantastic. Epic. GREAT!!!! I love book series and am usually let down by them. Harry Potter. Hunger Games. Outlander (still pretty good but after book five? Boring!) I cannot wait for book three!

Wow!. Ok so I don’t usually take the time to rate or review books because I’m always on to the next story, but WOW. This book is so soooo good! I couldn’t put it down. No seriously, I had to wake up at 4 am for work and I read until 2 am and had to force myself to put it down and go to sleep. I found myself laughing out loud for at least 7 minutes at one point because Gwen is such a character! I started this book 3 days ago and I couldn’t help myself... I kept reading... and now I find myself on book #3. Vera Nazarian has me hooked!

Awesome. Fantastic read! Absolutely loved the progression and escalating drama. My only complaint is that the training and finals weren't as detailed as the previous part before and during the semi-finals.

Amazing!. I fell in love with this author and her story. I can not wait for Survive!

Qualify. Intertesting sci fi read,but more geared for young adults

Amazing. Its really cool and interesting, I got hooked within the first 100 pages or so. Its a nice sci-fi story with high stakes and cool twists. Gwen is an interesting character and you get to follow her through her ingenuity and determination. Its really nice watching the story unfold.

Seriously A Must Read!!!. 10/10 would recommend reading this book! The writing is wonderful, the story is great, and you'll love the characters. I absolutely love this series and would love there to be an even bigger fan base because these books deserve it.

Awesome. This book is one I have read over and over again. The target audience is for teens, but many generations can enjoy it. Each time I see more clues, each time I can feel the emotions of the well developed characters. Looking forward to book 2: Compete...(which I have read twice...lol) 😉

Fabulous read!. I don’t normally leave a review but this book was too good to not recommend. Well-written. Great story.

so good. This book had all the elements of a great story. I am really looking forward to reading the next one!

Amazing. I am so in awe of this amazing book and the great storytelling. I cannot wait to find out what happens next. I am not a big Sci-Fi reader but I have fallen in love with these characters and the storyline. On to reading the next book! I thank the author for sharing her story with me. ❤️

5⭐️ all the way!. I fist found this series on Wattpad. I admit, I thought it was only a Wattpad book and not actually published. Then, after a bit of searching, I found it was a real published book and I freaked out. This book is so good and I recommend it to EVERYONE! Also, this deserves a five star rating from everyone. I absolutely love the book!!!!!!!!!!

Great Book, Great Series. Stumbled on this gem of a series. Read the first two books in a just a few days, couldn't put them down. Excitedly waiting for book #3 to be published!

Qualify. This book has many different elements in it, some the same as competing to qualify for some type of prize. This book has teens qualifying for a chance to survive and live as the earth is hit with an asteroid. Physical trials and tribulations. Gwen Lark makes it through the finals and is whisked off to Atlantis with two of her siblings. Unfortunately her older brother gets to shuttle but not enough points. A sad day but Gwen swears she will be reunited with her parents an brother and all will be well or will it

Excellent!. I really enjoyed this original take on a dystopian. The writing is excellent, and unlike most books, this one offers so much going on in each chapter and it’s longer than most others without droning or being repetitive. I’m definitely going to be reading the next book!

Wow!. Fast paced, engaging characters and very compelling plot. I will definitely be finding anything else written by this wonderful author to devour! Thank you for sharing this story.

Surprise!. While this is not Harry Potter level, very few if any books out today are, it is certainly more than adequate. The characters are well developed & the plot contains some very original surprises. It treads very lightly on the teen romance element & still maintains the integrity of the story. This is one of the very few books I highly recommend for readers of all ages who enjoy this genre.

Stay up all night. Don't start this book unless you are prepared to stay up all night. I couldn't put this book down. If you like adventure mixed in with science fiction and teenagers, you will enjoy this story.

Qualify. This is a sci-fi adventure book cleary aimed at adolescent girls. It is a first person account of the trials and tribulations of an imaginative uber nerdy girl in her attempts to qualify for rescue by Atlantians from an Earth doomed by collision with an asteroid. The format is that of a boarding school novel with the heroine in a Harry Potter like role. Characters include bosom friends, siblings, bullies, a teen age love interest, kindly adult faculty and even the obligatory gay acquaintance. The heroine and friends improbably overcome a series of challenges and at the end, depart for distant Atlantis. The story coould be told in half the length. It is clearly intended to be a lead in to subsequent books in the series. One comes away wondering why the Atlantans, with their superior technology, don’t simply divert the asteroid a degree or so, enabling it to miss the Earth entirely. But then there would be no novel.

Awesome. Great story. I couldn’t put it down. Buying the next one now.

Qualify. Can’t wait to read the next book!

Very “Hunger Games”. While I did not find this as captivating as the Hunger Games, it was still worth reading. Some parts try too hard to replicate Hunger Games, and I found myself skimming over those parts to get to the more original aspects.

Lacking. Too much like a Hunger Games story. End was too incomplete.

An Excellent Read. This book and wonderful characters has me wanting the next book.

Really Enjoyed This Book. Well written, pace was very good. There was action, angst, family love, and a touch of mystery. The premise was similar to the Hunger Games. Teenagers competing but they were not killing each other. Looking forward to the next one.

Wow! Fantastic tale. Such a tremendous array of believable young characters and dynamics in an unbelievably hard situation. Plus a new culture and new physics that make enough sense to be from another very believable world.

AWESOME Read!!. This book is one of those that will stay in your mind weeks after you finish reading it. Great plot, and great characters. I especially love the Command Pilot Aeson Kass; his character is amazing and has me feeling all kinds of stuff. I really enjoyed the book and will buy the sequel; you can re read the book and feel like you’re reading it for the first time all over again. Vera Nazarian, you are a genius this book is captivating and beautifully written. Really recommend if you enjoy reading sci fi/romance books. This book is a page turner and you will not be able to put it down. This book deals with themes of fighting for those you love and doing anything and everything you need to do, to help and save them. Love it !

So Original. I love this series. It's original, imaginative and interesting. The only criticism I could have is that it is occasionally slow. But over all an amazing series.

Five star series. Agghhh! Absolutely everything I've ever wished for in a great story I was an addict the whole way through and now I am lost, waiting for the release of Book 2! I think I'm shaking It's that good, please know I am impatiently waiting for the the next book And the third

TJB. Excellent book. Couldn't put it down

Enjoy but. The concept and writing are good, however, the idea of turning these kids into psychotic killers to qualify is bizarre. This is a supposedly higher human civilization. I have read this series previously and understand more is explained there but it can be deeply disturbing to read especially for younger people. This should not be considered normal or acceptable.

Amazing!. I love the Hunger Games feel. I could hardly get anything done the past few days because I just wanted to read it!

Awesome. I actually love this book I’ve been looking for a part two or book two and I can’t find it hopefully there is one because once I started reading this book I got sucked in and couldn’t put it down

I liked it! A lot!. This book was a real page turner. It would keep me guessing on some of the twists but I nailed a couple so I was proud of that feature also.

Compete. One of the better books I have read !!!

Cheesy, yet I was hooked. I was hesitant to try this book because it sounded lame at first. It had great reviews so I gave it a shot. I will admit, there were many cheesy moments and anticipated plot-twists. However, this book is written really well. I can tell the author is intelligent. Everything is so descriptive, I really felt immersed in this futuristic earth and the character with her story. I recommend it if you're looking for a young-adult sci-fi novel to read.

Qualify. It's a great book. You will definitely enjoy it and get hooked.

This Qualifies. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the bond that Gwen has with her siblings. Her determination is admirable but her ability to think her way out of a problem is enviable. Sometimes the very things that we feel we cannot do, is the thing that forces us to prove ourselves worthy of ourselves. The surprises, the suspense, and the relatable characters make me anxious for next book in the series.

AMAZING. This book is action filled. There is never a dull moment. Highly suggested for readers of hunger games and divergent.

Good, no love triangle. Good book overall. It didn't need the love triangle i felt super bad for logan.

Love it!!. I’ve read the entire series twice now!! I’m in love with this series!! 10/10 recommend if you like adventure, science fiction and a love story!

Start at A.M.. I started at 10/11 am and finished at 3:30 am the next day. This book is addicting, actually it’s kind of scary how addicting it is but I love it!!!! I Stan the prince!!!!

Page turner. Enjoyed the book from start to the unexpected end

Love this. I have read this book multiple time now and it never ceases to amaze me with its well-written storyline. I would definitely recommend it.

Couldn't put it down. Compelling read!. So glad to have finally finished this book, so I can get some sleep! Excellent story line, great characters, really lived the story!

More than a good read.. This isn't the book I was searching for, but it peaked my interest from the description and feedback. I'm moe than happy. To say it's well written is an understatement. The detailed descriptions meant I was there. Experiencing everything first hand! What a story!! I'd highly recommend this to anyone.

Amazing. I loved it and am proceeding to purchase the second book. I already have a paperback copy of the third book and am looking forward to reading that to.

Qualify. A fast paced story of young Gwen Lark, and her family and new friends, competing to stay alive and ultimately qualify for a place to escape a doomed earth, an epic read with great characters looking forward to the next book with anticipation.

Too many stereotypical descriptions. Very immersive and amazing read. Will definitely have you looking forward to the next instalments. Would've given it five stars if not for the outrageous stereotypical descriptions of every African American/Black character. We don't all say "yo" and "girlfriend" every second. Had me rolling my eyes quite a few times.

Qualify. Excellent read with a Harry Potter meets Star Wars theme. I could not see through the plot and there was never any feelings of why didn't they do the obvious. The author's style was good and I literally could not put it down. Got this free but will happily buy any sequels.

Amazing, couldn’t put it down!. This series is amazing, I’ve read them all 3 times and cannot wait for the final and then novellas

Immersive!. The author creates such an immersive environment, you feel like you know the characters and you live the situations with them. I've read the sequels and keep coming back to re-read this to pick up on little nuances. This author doesn't add any details that don't have a purpose at some point in the series!

Amazing. I don't normally like sci-fi/apocalyptic books, but this was amazing. I ended up reading it till 7:30am after starting the night before. Such a good plot line, such a good author. I can barely find the words to describe how good this book was.

The Earth is doomed who will survive.. Got this as a free book and thought I would get bored but I soon got into the story. The main character is someone we know or new in school but as she’s the heroine and you know the Ark has a seat with her name on it but who is going with her.

Qualify. Wow such a great story couldn't put it down, should be made into a film, brilliant!!!

Atlantis Grail ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Fantastic writing, compelling plot, and relatable and complex characters. One of my favourite book series which I think about almost on a daily basis. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Great Read!. Absolutely loved Qualify! I'm a big fan of character development, and this was just 👌👌. Couldn't put the book down, read it in two days! Got the second book straight away!

must read!. definitely worth a read!!! love the history, mythological components and romance combined, am totally excited to be finishing off the rest of this series

The Atlantis grail book one Amazing. What a fabulous book! It was gritty, had plot twists and I was spellbound. I’m hooked...cannot wait to read the next one

Thrilling Read. Qualify is an amazing story about family connection and an unrelenting need to survive. The author pulls you into a futuristic world where the earth is doomed and the only way to live is to compete against all the other teenagers in the world for one of the 6000 or so spots available on the alien saviours ships. This book is definitely worth a read.

Better than the Hunger Games. I never review books. This one was free, but I happily paid the $6.99 for the next two in the series and am bummed at having to wait for book #4! So well written. Original. Un-put-downable!

Addicted. I can not wait for the third and fourth book to be released I am itching for the story to continue

It will NOT disappoint. Hands down one of the best books I've ever read in my life. I hope the sequels are just as good if not better

Must Read!!. Honestly my favourite series I’ve ever read. Once you start reading you just can’t stop!! I’ve read this series at least three times now and I can’t wait for book 4 to finally come out! :))) Anyways read the book and I promise you won’t regret it.

Best book I've ever read. My favourite book in the world. And best series I've ever read. Can't stop re reading series!

Absolutely Incredible. I have read this book about once or twice every year since it came out, and I enjoy it more each time. There’s something about each character I can relate to, and the plot is gripping without being overbearing. I love seeing how Gwen begins to come out of her shell, and grow into herself not only throughout this book but the series as a whole. Thank you Vera Nazarian for creating such a beautiful series!

NO. Nah, I don’t like it.

good read. It's a good read. The first few pages are the most important to me, they determine if I'm going to be bored or not. This one did not disappoint, they had me intrigued and once I passed the first 2 chapters I was hooked. Definitely looking forward to buying book 2

Amazing. It's a great series and I found it difficult to put the book down. Great story. I look forward to the next 2. I want to read them again and again. Thank you for sharing your imagination.

THE BEST. Ive read all of this series’ books, and they were all amazing. I really consider giving this book a shot if you’re looking for one

Amazing!!. More! More! MORE! This is a amazing story and I want MORE!! Start casting for the movie too!!!

Fantastic read. I fell in love with this series and eagerly await each new addition. Highly recommend for fans of the hunger games, or anyone who likes creative escapes from dangerous situations.

Awesome, but.... This is pretty much my favourite book, or at least, one of my favourites. One thing that I don’t like: everytime there is someone who does bad things to Gwen, or just someone particularly mean, it’s a Latino. Well; almost. Like the guy who snitched on Gwen in the Pilot class thing was Latino, as I was expecting after many other times that it happened. Claudia Grito, in the first book, is clearly Latina, and she is the “gang leader” of the “bad guys”. She is like, the worst of them. But it’s always the same thing, someone Latino/Latina. Like, why? That’s pretty much it. Also, it’s really probable that I’m wrong, or that I’m just only focusing on some people. (Very sorry for my English, my first language are French and Spanish. I hope you understood what I wrote.😬😅)

Freaking AWESOME! Won't disappoint. This series is 100000% gripping, interesting, and takes you on an emotional roller coaster! The plot is really great and makes you want to immediately move onto the next book in the series.. It can be a bit slow at times if you look at it objectively (as in not being emotionally invested in the story), but when you're into it (and you will be), it just feels like you're getting to peak into the window of the character's life! This is one story you DEFINITELY want to read, and you will be glad you did. Be warned though.. At the time of this review, the author has only put out 2 books in the series (which will have 4 books)... So you're better off reading the series when there's at least 3 books out! Otherwise you're going to suffer the usual withdrawal/feels when you can't binge read an entire series.. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!! I would 10000000% recommend reading it 😊

Pretty damn good. Really looking forward to the next book. This is probably the best story I’ve read in a while. Original, creative and page turning. I highly recommend this book.

Excellent Book. I really enjoyed this book! It had hints of hunger games with the arena challenges. The characters were all very enjoyable and engaging! I would recommend it to anyone who likes science fiction / fantasy.

really good. i’m not much of a reader but holy crap i got hooked on this book
