Book Giveaway: Atlantis Rising by Alyssa Day
Conlan, the high prince of Atlantis, has just escaped from seven years of torture at the hands of Anubisa, Goddess of Death, only to discover that the Trident of Poseidon, the most sacred symbol of power in Atlantis has been stolen. Conlan, along with Alaric, the high priest of Poseidon and his close friend, and the Seven, proud warriors sworn to protect the high prince and led by Conlan's brother Ven, go on a mission to retrieve the trident.
Riley is a social worker who often escapes to the beach to be near the ocean, finding it soothing to her soul, and that's where she is when Conlan and his band surface in their quest for the trident. Immediately the two are drawn to each other, into each other's thoughts and hearts, like nothing Riley or Conlan has ever experienced before. She is Aknasha, and her like has not been seen for thousands of years. Her very presence in his life will change everything.
This is a very busy book! In addition to hunky Atlantean warriors, we have vampires and shapeshifters, a biblical figure and yes, even Poseidon himself lets his presence be known! While I wasn't really drawn to Conlan himself, I did find myself interested in reading the later books which I hope will feature each of the Seven, and possibly Alaric. They each have some personality characteristics that would make their episodes interesting I think. I'm especially interested in Brennan, Justice and Alaric. Denal, the youngest of the group, was a sweetie too. It looks like book 3, Atlantis Unleashed is about Justice, and the short story Wild Hearts in Atlantis from the Anthology Wild Thing includes Bastien's story, another of the Seven. So hopefully we'll see the others somewhere down the line! Lots of Alpha Maleness going on here, lol!
