Atlantis Awakening (Warriors of Poseidon #2)
Mass Market Paperback, 284 pages
Published November 6th 2007 by Berkley
To rescue the world from an overwhelming evil, Poseidon's warriors have risen from Atlantis. Chief among them is Ven, serving as the King's Vengeance by birthright and by battle challenge. None can conquer him—-except, perhaps, for one human female...
Ven's mind is filled with duty. He must serve as Atlantean liason to the humans in a war waged against the vampires. A sword is his weapon—-not diplomacy. But on a mission to recover the Nereid's Heart—-a ruby of immense power—-it will take every ounce of strength he possesses to resist the sexual allure of the beautiful witch chosen to work with him.
And the witch...
Erin's heart is filled with vengeance. She lives only for the chance at revenge against those who murdured her family. Now she must partner with a legendary Atlantean warrior whose dark desire threatens to crash through the barriers built around her emotions—-and her heart. Caught in a trap of shifting alliances, how long can Ven and Erin resist their awakening passion?
Dark forces beware: Atlantis is awakening.
Amazing story! I'm a Greek/Roman mythology and legend lover. The Atlantis Series really gives me what I need: mix of legend and mythology into one book! Atlantis Awakening is the second book of the series. I find the first book awesome and I waited almost a month until I was able to get the second one! (Thanks to Amazon.com)
At first, I didn't jump into the action: even if there was plenty of action! I don't know, maybe I wasn't in a good mood when I started Atlantis Awakening. I have it to put it aside a couple of time at the beginning. But after 3 or 4 chapters I wasn't able to put it away! It's was hard because I was reading other really good book at the same time!
The second book started right after the first book end (or some months later). Almost all the characters are stuck in the same action were we left them in the last book. So I recommend you to start the series with the first book: Atlantis Rising. You will find it more enjoyable this way! A lot of characters from the first book don’t receive a description in the second book. You may not be able to understand all the meaning and the importance of each character if you didn't read the first one.
Ven and Erin are the principal characters of Atlantis Awakening.
Ven is Conlan (King to-be) brother. He's also the King's Vengeance (the perfect role for him) and he's the macho guy, who gets who he want and never gets involved intimately into a real relationship. It's always one night and that's pretty much what he want and need. Until he find Erin. A witch with some supernatural power and as you may find out, the power to melt Ven's heart. I was eager to read about this character and I really like what the author decided to do with him. We do not know more about him in this story.
I love Ven's possessiveness and macho side because for my part I loved to read about the big guy who's falling in love for the little beauty. He's very protective and he will do everything he can to protect he's precious witch.
I enjoy the kick-ass attitude of Erin. Seeing Ven's turning into a ''caveman'' toward Erin, so he might protect her, really makes me think about some highlanders characters. That tough make me laugh and I really enjoy reading that Erin doesn't back down.
I really love the sad story and the past of Erin. She's pretty stuck in a mess, but she finds her way and survives in this world full of new creatures as vampires, witch, shape-shifters... I was amaze by the imagination and the creativity of the author about Erin character. Honestly I didn't expect that! So I was pretty in the book when I knew what Erin really is! (I won't tell you! :))
I was surprise to find out more about Justice character: Another huge turn out for this second book! Now I really want to read the next book of the series because it's Justice story! Oh my, a really unpredictable ending! A lot of surprise thru this book! Always amaze with news situations, news characters, and news possibilities! Alyssa Day is a great author and I know I will read her entire series. She known’s how to hook the reader.
The cover is wonderful. I love the mix of color and the fact that we don't see the face of Ven's character. So we are able to imagine who we want. Oh yeah! I also love the tattoo design and its meaning.
