Atlantis Rising by Alyssa Day
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlanteans,
Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans
in the new world. There was only one rule-desiring them was forbidden.
But rules were made to be broken...
When she calls...
Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She's
blessed with a mind link that only Atlanteans have been able to access
for thousands of years. Being an "empath" may explain her wistful
connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides,
and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below...
He will come.
the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve
Poseidon's stolen trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the
intimate emotions-and desires-of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the
uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst
of a battle to reclaim Poseidon's power, how long can a forbidden love
last between two different souls from two different worlds?
The story revolves around Conlan, the high priest of Atlantis and Riley Dawson. Conlan has been held prisoner by an evil vampiress who enjoys torturing people. Vampire's are hell bent on ruling mankind and the Atlanteans fight to keep them at bay. When Conlan is released from bondage he is soon set on a course to recover the trident which has been stolen by a power hungry warrior.
Definately a must read. After stories on vampires,werewolves and the other predictable heroes that go bump in the night Atlantis Rising is a refreshing change. The story line is great though in some instances it reminded me of Christine Feehan's Dark books. Will be looking forward to reading the next book in this series. I hope it will be the priest getting married this time.
