Atlantis Rising by T.A. Barron
Promi is a thief that has finally been caught by the high priest of Ellegandia. It is there that he discovers that the stories of magic are real, as is a prophecy that seems to be about him. He gets caught up in a fight against the high priest and the spirit Narkazan who are trying to steal all the magic to take over both Earth and the immortal realm.
I really liked this book. It is basically the story of how Atlantis came to be a mythical island in the middle of the ocean. While it is a good book for kids, I really think teen boys would enjoy the series. In fact, I'm already thinking of several in the teen book club to recommend it to.
