About The Puzzle Quests: Saving Atlantis:
Rose can’t imagine swimming in the state championships without her teammate Luke. It’s been two months since she had to say goodbye to him in the land of Dragonia, and Rose fears she has lost her connection to him. Before she loses all hope, Rose and her growing band of knights are summoned to Dragonia to fulfill a quest. They must work together to save the mermaid, Natalia, before her home in Atlantis is destroyed.

This perilous adventure tests Rose’s courage and fighting skills as she is lulled by mystical sirens and attacked by unknown enemies. When Rose becomes impatient and attempts to save this fragile world on her own, her team is thrown into danger. The safety of Atlantis and her friendships are compromised. Will Rose see the value of working as a team before she is trapped in Dragonia forever?
