    I love this book, not just because my mom wrote it, but because it is a unique tale based around such a loving family. I feel I can relate to it because the characters themselves are very relatable, whereas the events that unfold are things I've dreamed about. This book is that of fiction and fantasy, but like any good book, it carries truth about people and family and love. These themes intertwine and surround the Lundgren family and all the adventures they partake in. It's a coming of age novel, and it's also a novel that teaches the importance of trust, love and family. I recommend it for all ages!

    A nice break from the 'dark' so many authors feel the need for.There is no shortage of books delving into the dark with relationship drama, rebellious children, death, and destruction at every turn. This is a breath of fresh air in that there is adversity and danger, but it is more personal in a 'growing' way and considerably less dramatic or violent.It is also nice to see a book where the parents are not on the verge of some marital cliff, in an equal relationship and raising their children with love and support instead. It got a little too good to be true a few times when the extended family was introduced, but not enough to drop a star.It took a while for things to get moving, but by the time it did I felt like I knew the family well and would enjoy their company. There were a couple of unresolved issues, but I'm sure the author will address them in the follow-up. I would recommend this book to everyone, it is a break from the darkness that is so prevalent nowadays.The fact that the entire extended family is Atlantian with an affinity for water plus science that is thousands of years more experienced than what is considered 'state of the art', is a bonus.

    Sigrun revolves around a sheltered (as in they hardly ever leave the restaurant they work at or the town they live in) and tight-knit family of four children and their parents. Even though the only conflicts in this story were the sibling rivalries and insecurities of the children as they wrestled to come to terms with abilities they possessed and secrets their parents had been keeping from them, I still found myself invested in the story and the growth of the children. A non-dysfunctional family with supportive parents who don't get killed off somehow along the way is not a common theme in YA lit. I kept waiting for something sinister to happen, but it never did. This book really was a feel-good tale of family togetherness-- a nice change of pace every now and then.

    This is a unique book, and it sort of reminds me of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, with the 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls), and a magical land and hidden heritage. I would love it if this story were presented with illustrations, because there are a lot of visuals in this book and there are so many details. The children start showing a bit of individuality towards the middle of the book, when all is out in the open so to speak, which is very interesting.Atlantis is a fascinating subject and it’s a great premise for a story. It's obvious this book was a labor of love, and I especially enjoyed the unique closeness of the family.

    Great story and fun read, I am sure it is many a dream of young readers to imagine their family to have these powers, secrets and connections to an ancient civilization!The characters are well developed through their dialogue and interactions and family relationships seem fun (and familiar). Looking forward to the next Sigrun Installment!

    So awesome and easy to read and just free flowing and a real family who cares about each other. I can't wait to read the next one.

    This book starts slow but it is a great read about a family with a secret. Four siblings find they all have unique abilities involving water. A secret involving a parent being impossibly older than they look. Both parents being from the "Atlantis".
