Oh, wow. I loved this one! It was definitely the best in the series so far.

5 STARS. -----------

With this installment the plot is definitely developing into something bigger much better than what it was in the first 2 books. I loved than now everything will be about finding the seven rocks. Also I loved that we got to see much more about other warriors. It was like in this installment we got to know them better and see that every one of them have a different personality. So many things in this

I loved Justice's book. The ending of Atlantis Awakening wasn't promising for poor Lord Justice, but wow, I liked his story. I liked how the love story went, where Keely falls in love with both halves of Justice's nature; the Atlantean and the Neried. And I like how they were linked through visions of each other, but neither knew the other was real. Very well done. If you haven't read the Warriors of Poseidon, do not start with this one. You could even skip the novellas, as far as sequence goes, ...more

Great read! Strong but tortured warriors, spunky and determined human mates, crackling personal chemistry and lots of page-turning action - quintessential Alyssa Day.

The latest entry in the Warriors of Poseidon series resolves the cliff hanger ending of Atlantis Awakening where the half-breed warrior Justice volunteered to become the prisoner of the evil vampire goddess Anubisa. Between tormented captivity and the breaking of his gaes Justice's mind has shattered, allowing the non-human portion

Finally! After a way too long wait, the Atlanteans are back! "Atlantis Unleashed" continues the story of Poseidon's warriors who have been called to save humanity and bring Atlantis back to the surface. To do this, they must gather the missing jewels from Poseidon's trident or Atlantis will crumble rather than rise and humankind will fall to the bad guys.

Lord Justice sacrificed himself to save his brothers and ended up tortured by the vampire goddess Anubis. Did I mention she's really good at th
The plot was all over the place in this one, there were just too many view points shown and not enought of them were about the lead characters. The story didn't really catch my attention, I hope the next one is better.

4.5 Stars

This is definately the best book in the series so far. It continues on the bigger story of overcoming the vampire threat on humanity and finding out how to raise Atlantis, and also continues the more personal story of Lord Justice, who last we saw was being taken away by the bitch vampire goddess Anubisa for an eternity of torture.

We found out Justice's big bad secret in the previous book, Justice is also a Prince of Atlantis, Conlan and Ven's father's bastard, making him Conlan and Ven

Аз съм мрънкало. Или, по-точно, посочвам, когато нещо не ми е харесало в дадена книга. Но след мощната офанзива още от началото, тази книга не ми даде възможност да мрънкам. Странно на какви неща е способна една малка рибка, не е ли така?
Защото главното ми оплакване винаги е било, че нещата се развиват твърде бързо, че героите се влюбват безпаметно преди да имат време да се опознаят. Но тук това малко късче дърво, преплувало времето и пространството, свързва

A self-sacrificing half Nereid/half Atlantean warrior on the edge of sanity because of his fractured soul, a feisty, pragmatic and independent object-reading archeologist, a pre-destined love match, a quest for a lost gem and plans to wreak havoc on a vampire goddess. These are the ingredients of the newest installment in the WARRIORS OF POSEIDON series!

Let me start by stating that this was a book of which I have been anticipating its release for well over a year! I read ATLANTIS AWAKENING in No

Adventure, romance, mythology, sea gods, vampires, the lost city of Atlantis, South American jungles and the possible destruction of human kind hang in the balance – it’s a roller coaster ride of action. Atlantis Unleashed, Alyssa Day’s newest installment in her Warriors of Poseidon series has it all. Combine an alpha hero who has suffered imprisonment in the Netherworld with an intelligent, endearing heroine and you have a recipe for one of those ’sit back in your favorite chair reads’.

I absolutely love this series. Justice is the perfect tortured hero and the blue hair, yummy. Justice is a half-breed and after being tortured by Anubisa the vampire goddess, his two souls have fractured apart. When Keely McDermott enters Atlantis, both halves of Justice immediately fall in love. Keely is pychometric (meaning she gets visions when she touches objects) and has been having visions for years of a blue-haired hottie. She's half in love with Justice before she ever meets him which is ...more

great characters. Some mispellings and a bunch of places where mayeb spellcheck was allowed to choose the word to replace the wrong spelled word. The editer is not doing the job well, one paragraph doesn't even make sense because of it. Justice is a great character and what a surprise from the previous book and it was expanded on in this book. Not as action packed as the previous book, but a good book. Good series, each book moves the overall story along even though each book has it's own main s ...more

Atlantis Unleashed is the third book in the Warriors of Poseidon series and like its predecessors, it is a light, entertaining read. The story picks up from the cliffhanger from the second book. Justice, one of the Seven warriors sacrificed himself in order to save Ven and Erin. In this story we find Justice trapped in the Void after weeks of torture at the hands of Anubisa, the Vampire Goddess that takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin' (book after book).

The first and second books explained the objectives of the Warriors of Poseidon. In this book, it explained further how Atlantis would rise from its magical and hidden place. The warriors would need to find all of the gemstones of Poseidon’s trident. They were seven in all: 1) The Dragon’s Eye, which was found in Conlan’s story; 2) The Nereid’s Heart, which was found in Ven’s story; 3) The Star of Artemis, which was found in Justice’s story; 4) The Vampire’s Bane; 5) The Siren; 6) The Emperor; a ...more

What a rocky beginning. You dive head first into the action, I love that!! Justice has been one of my favorite from the very start. Who can resist his blue hair? Well apparently, not Keelie.
Their deep connection, the fact that their knew each other without having ever met added to their passion and strength. The fact that Justice shared his soul and mind did too. So many elements that make this book unique. My favorite so far I think.
My only regret was not learning more about the Nereid has a

This is a very good novel about how one can overcome one's perceived shortcomings. These warriors of Atlantis all seem to have low self-esteem, this one thinks that because of his dual nature his is unworthy of love. Fortunately there is a spunky archaeologist to help. More ancient warriors, more mystical powers, less of the angst this time. The book starts off pretty dark, but becomes somewhat lighter as time goes on. The characters are all starting to develop and the author is coming into her ...more

Lord Justice sacrificed his freedom to Anubisa’s torture to save his half-brothers Conlan and Ven. Now they have to find and rescue him. They also ‘enlist’ the help of Dr. Keely McDermott an archaeologist. In the process of searching they pick up Tiernan an investigative reporter.

Both ladies are smart, beautiful and have valuable information. Keely is a touch psychic and can help them find the jewels. That is, as soon as they find out where Justice took Keely. Tiernan has a vast network of inf

"Atlantis Unleashed" by Alyssa Day. Book 3 of the Warriors of Poseidon series.

Loved it! Justice and Keely are two very interesting characters.

Justice has been held captive and tortured by the godess Anubisa for the past four months. But to Justice, the time has been irrelevant...days, months, years...he's not really sure how long he's been in hell. All because he sacrificed himself to save his half-brother Ven from the same fate. Only one thing has kept his sanity somewhat intact; the vision of

Alyssa Day's Warriors of Poseidon series grows on me more and more with each book as these ancient Warriors continue their mission of protecting the human race from all the things that go bump in the night and working towards bringing the city Atlantis into the modern day world. I really do love these Warriors. I mean, really. It's a group of huge, sexy, fierce men who just make you want to lick them. How could that possibly be a bad thing? Hm? Exactly. lol

I'm so conflicted about how I feel about Atlantis Unleashed. I mean, it took me a really long time to read--almost a week, which is a long time for me, even when I have an extra busy schedule or other obligations. Somehow though, it didn't fail the fifty page test. The book had plot holes you could drive a truck through, but I kept reading. The book had characters I didn't really care about, but I kept reading. The characters had back stories that bored me, but I kept reading. I can't explain an ...more

With the ending of Atlantis Awakening I don’t think there was one reader out there, loving this series and who didn’t scream for Justice’s story. I count my blessing in that regard that I didn’t read Atlantis Awakening upon release but only just this month, with Atlantis Unleashed already on my shelves. With reading the final pages I can say that Justice left its mark all over Atlantis Unleashed and took me on his journey of the heart and soul.

I just finished listening to Alyssa Day's "Atlantis Unleashed", book 3 in her Warriors of Poseidon series. I bought books 1 and 2 of the series back in the day when I read paperbacks. I thought I'd like them more than I actually did. I love reading about oceans, Atlantis and Greek gods but the books seemed awfully wordy without really being interesting. However, I am listening to this book on my MP3 player. The narrator, Joshua Swanson, was simply excellent in Rick Riordan's "The Lost Hero" but ...more

“Atlantis Unleashed” is the third book in Alyssa Day’s Warriors of the Poseidon series. At the end of Atlantis Awakening, Justice, after keeping the truth of his birth a secret all his life, offered his life or his soul to Anubisa to save his brother, Ven & Erin, as well Conlan & Riley, and their unborn child. “Atlantis Unleshed” is Justice’s story.

In the wee hours of this morning, I finished Atlantis Unleashed (Warriors of Poseidon, #3) by Alyssa Day (). The series is true PNR featuring a new couple in each book. In the series you discover that the lost city of Atlantis exists, but has been hiding itself from humanity. And a subset of Atlantean warriors have been tasked with saving humanity from vampires (who have recently "come out" in society).
