Jewel of Atlantis (Atlantis #2)
IMHO the problem with this installment was that it lacked everything I loved about book one. I adored the Dragon warriors, for me they are the most interesting species because I have never read about them before, while I got a bit bored of gods, vampires and demons. I was exhilarated about readi...more
kitap gerçekten çok akıcı arada başkalarını gözünden anlatsada asıl olayları anlatan Gray ve Jewel. okuması eylenceli bir daha okuyacağımı sanmıyorum ama okudugum sürece eylendim aşagına türkçe bir özet bulacaksın (daha çok benim yararıma :D)

A brief summary: Grayson James is sent to Atlantis to find and bring back the Jewel of Atlantis, which is said to hold many extraordinary powers. Gray isn't even sure Atlantis exists until he finds himself on the other side of the portal he entered...more
Grayson (or Gray) was the hero of this story and while he's supposed to be human he always seems like a little bit more which kind of bothered me. It isn't that I disliked him but I felt it would have just been easier if he were part something from Atlantis. But I'm not the author. I'm also not into the more demanding and gruff males. I don't mind it in general but he s...more
Grayson James has managed to sneak through these fearsome guardians (not sure how) in search of the mythical Jewel of Dunamis. A jewel that has the power to tell the future, read minds, and separate lie...more
Gray is a human OBI (kind of a men in black agency) agent who travels into Atlantis to find the Jewel of Dunamis. He starts hearing a voice in his mind trying to prevent him from trouble, leading him through the Atlantis terrain and asking him to help her escape her captivity. After rescuing Jewel from her captors it tells of their journey to find Jewel safety, their unnatural connection and getting Gray to the Jewel of Dunamis. How will they cope with their blo...more
Someone should have told Grayson James."
Grayson James works on missions for OBI (Otherworld Bureau of Investigations), operations nearly impossible, that have taken him even to other planets and most of the times almost killed him. A new mission takes him to the forbidden land of Atlantis, where there are vampires, demons and many other magical...more
Gena Showalter fa sempre così, non ci resta che attendere il terzo per veder confermate le nostre speranze.
Personalmente, come coppia, mi son piaciuti molto. Lui: brillante, ironico e sexy. Lei: fragile, testarda e sbarazzina.
Punti deboli? Lei vuole fare sesso con Gray. Perchè? perchè lo ama. Stop. E' tutto quello che dobbiamo sapere. Vorrebbe fare sesso con Gray anche durante una battaglia! Ah, giusto, non ha mai avuto un uomo ques...more
The mystery of Atlantis has always fascinated me and even though this series puts a different spin on the legend, I still loved it and read it in only 3 hours.
Gray is a human OBI agent searching for the Jewel of Dunamis. The jewel has immense powers and in the wrong hands it's a very powerful weapon. When he finds it, Gray intends to either hand it over to his employers or destroy it.
Jewel...yes, THE Jewel...has been in captivity most...more
Luego de leer el primer libro, no la mejor experiencia de mi vida, sentí que le debía a Gena la oportunidad de volver a intentarlo, puesto que he amado LoTU, y que bien que se la di.
Ésta segunda entrega resultó muchísimo más ligera y sumamente más entretenida que la anterior. Los personajes se desarrollan mucho mejor y el conflicto de los protagonistas que sí deben o no estar juntos está tan bien justificado que no resulta tonto y pobre. Gray es un caballero, un guer...more
Gray is hot, hot, HOT (!) and Jewel is a strong heroine, even if she doesn't realize it. The action was just about non-stop (unfortunately for our main characters who probably could have used a break) and it was great to have glimpses of other Atlantis characters from previous books. Darius? Layel? Yum.
And while I really liked the beginning and how the story unfolded, I found the ending a bit rushed and anti-climatic.
I'm not sure that...more

Second in the Atlantis series
Every being in Atlantis wants to get their hands on the Jewel of Dunamis, which legend claims can overcome any enemy and expose their plans and secrets.

What he doesn’t know is that the Jewel of Dunamis is a woman. When Gray helps her win her freedom all of A...more

I’m so annoyed I have to give this 4.5 stars and not 5! The very last scene is just not worthy of 5 no matter how much the rest of the book is worth. The final scene is the pinnacle and this one, although a perfect ending, was not well presented. Arg!
This was quite a cute story aside from the horrible life of the heroine prior to the hero’s entrance. Jewel/Pru/Blaze and other hilarious names is the very much coveted Jewel of Dunamis, one of the most powerful entities in Atlantis. Grayson Jame...more
I started liking Grayson and Jewel but towards the middle I just kept sighing and rolling my eyes. Did they really had to bring up Grayson's millions of lovers and the fact that he liked sex? Geesh, it was like you read about their survival and suddenly the author randomly mentions his past sex life. Ugh. I didn't really understand the ending. Jewel defeats the bad guy and he just leaves her. . . Just like that? No tears or heart wrenching moments or even a believable internal figh...more
