Wow, this book had some twists and turns.

In case we've forgotten, the warrior Brennan was cursed by sea god Poseidon to never feel emotion...until he meets his true mate. But then he will immediately forget her the second she's out of his sight. Remember when he went psycho on the vamps in Boston? Yep, that's why...2000 years worth of emotion crashed over him at the sight of investigative reporter Tiernan. So 2 books later, we see what happens when he meets her again. Well, he feels her get bit

„Изкуплението на Атлантида“ се оказа една завладяваща история, наситена с много емоции. Имах нужда точно от тази книга, за да ме изкара от временното нежелание да чета. Хареса ми стила на Алиса Дей. Тя използва толкова красиви и разнообразни думи, за да опише обстановката и героите си. Няма как да не се наслаждаваш на начина й на писане. В момента си стоя с доволна усмивка на лице и нямам търпение да прочета още от книгите на Алиса Дей.

Wow, two thousand years of blocked emotions add a steamy intensity to the latest Warriors of Poseidon tale

Atlantis Redeemed has a great hook and a most excellent beginning. Atlantean Warrior Brennan was cursed 2000 years ago by Poseidon to feel no emotion until the day he meets his mate and then he is doomed to forget her every time she leaves his sight until the day she dies. Then the most vindictive part of the curse kicks in - he will regain his memory of her so that he can mourn the loss of

Alyssa Day always seems to deliver a book with a punch, she dose it again with Atlantis Redeemed. I found this book nothing less then amazing there is so much, I don’t know where to start and what to tell, I don’t want to give out a whole lot because it was just to good. So here we go. In this one you find not to piss Poseidon off when Brannan does just that, he finds himself cursed like no other, lets just say when Poseidon delivers a curse he does it with just the right touch to make you forge ...more

Oh, this series is killing me. I just can't put it down. I need to read more and more. What is not to like about a world about to get into war between shifters, vampires, faes, humans and our good and hot Atlantean warriors? I just love this series and can't wait to keep reading it, I just don't get bored of it.

In this installment we get to read about Brennan, a warrior 2000 years old cursed by the sea god to not feel any emotions at all, ever, at least until he finds his true mate, but ten forc

I love and hate this series.

* So over the top with the ancient warrior stuff.
* All true love is determined by flames in eyeballs of warriors + soul meld during sex. Um... ok. So author never has to really develop a "why" or show us people falling in love because they are simply meant to be.

* World building, plot twists, characters
* Writing style
* non-stop action and adventure

So I guess this goes in guilty pleasure reading department. Because I love them... but also don't. I'm conflict
Rough start. I'm not sure I liked Brennan that much.

I'm a big fan of AD's Atlantis series and I was really looking forward to Brennan's story. Imagine being cursed for 2 MILLENIA to have no emotions. You can't experience fear, anger, joy, sadness, triumph or love. To a warrior this has to be a curse extraordinaire. Now add to that curse: when Brennan finds his destined mate, his true love, he will not remember her once she is gone from his presence. Only when she dies and her spirit is in Heaven, will he remember and mourn her.

Another excellent read from Alyssa Day. My only complaint? The next one isn't due out until September...

Brennan is a wonderful character always cool, logical, and TOTALLY unemotional due to a 2000 year old curse laid on him by Poseidon. Personally, given the EXTREMELY punitive details of the curse and the even more vindictive requirements for breaking it [the heroine has to die, for heavens sakes!!!:], I doubt if I would have continued to serve Poseidon...

This was a good read. Alyssa Day really has a way with beautiful words and imagery.

There were surprises in this book. One of the characters died and I certainly wasn't expecting it. I thought for sure this character would get a book. It was completely unexpected but it really was a beautifully written scene.

All in all, this was a good addition to the series. I liked Tiernan (great name) and Brennan. They were a wonderful couple.

It was nice visiting with old characters from earlier books as well

For the most part I liked this book as much as all of the Warriors of Poseidon series. However, this was my second time reading it and something bothered me a lot more than it did the first time. Though Tiernan is a strong-willed and intelligent woman, she shows a ridiculous lack of common sense at the most critical point in the book. I won't post spoilers but will say her lack of discretion in a room full of enemies irked me. I almost put the book down, but am glad I didn't. That one scene was ...more

A warrior cursed for two thousand years because a woman he slept with chose to kill herself and their unborn child rather than marry below her station. The curse is especially cruel as when he finds his true love he will not be able to remember her when he turns away until her heart stops beating then he will remember her and mourn her loss for the rest of his (many) days. I know, the solution is obvious to everyone fond of technology but Poseidon would probably not be happy about being thwarted ...more

Brennan: cursed to have no emotions until he finds his mate only to forget her when out of his sight until she dies. Tiernan: nosy aggressive reporter with no concern for her own safety. Put the two together and you get a heated romance. Add into that the vampires that are trying to mind control shifters so they can take over the world. That’s when things really get interesting.

I was confused for a lot of this. Possibly because Brennan was and I know I was supposed to be, but also because the

"Atlantis Redeemed" by Alyssa Day. Book 5 of the Warriors of Poseidon series.

Loved this one! Brennan and Tiernan have such an interesting and heartbreaking story.

Brennan has been cursed by Poseidon to have no emotions or feelings of any kind for the past 2000 years. Brennan has never told anyone exactly what the terms of the curse are but her knows them word for word. When he meets Tiernan, all his emotions come crashing back and he knows that she's his mate because only his mate can break his c

Atlantean warrior Brennan is cursed by Poseidon for his drinking and debauchery to have no emotions or feelings until he meets his soul mate. And then he will forget her each time she leaves his sight, until her death and then he will remember everything. For 2000 years Brennan has been emotionless and when he finally sees Tiernan, his feelings come rushing back and turn him into a raving lunatic who promptly attacks her and rips her blouse right off. He doesn't go any farther than that but she ...more

In this 5th installment of the Warriors of Poseidon series we're focused on Brennan and how he falls in love with Tiernan the reporter introduced in the passed book. I was excited to read about Brennan's story since he was cursed over two thousand years ago by Poseidon, losing all of his emotions until he set eyes on his one true mate. It was very interesting to see how he would handle all the emotions that came back to him when he came in contact with Tiernan. I loved the added intrigue with Ti ...more

Memorable Scenes:
I’m absolutely sure there were some memorable scenes but unfortunately I didn’t mark them/write them down and as I read this book about 5 months ago I can’t remember any, which totally makes me annoyed at myself.

Brennan wooed me with his gentlemanly ways. He's protective and courteous with a deep fierce and passionate side to him. Don't let the gentlemanly ways trick you into thinking he's anything less than a strong, fearless warrior who goes into berserker mode whe

“Atlantis Redeemed” is the fifth book (plus two novellas) in Alyssa Day’s Warriors of the Poseidon series. As in Atlantis Unmasked, I was prepared not to like this book as much as the earlier ones, since some of the heroes had smaller roles. “Atlantis Redeemed” is Brennan’s story, and once again Day managed to surprise me…I loved Brennan and Tiernan. In the previous books, we were introduced to Tiernan, an investigative reporter, and I thought then she would be an interesting character. Knew fro ...more

I like this series, The Warriors of Poseidon, as one can tell by my rating of the earlier books. They are entertaining, have a good romance usually, and a good story that furthers the overall story. The problem with this addition to the series is that it wasn't up to the others.

It was just an OK and parts of it were outright maddening/bad. The two main characters lacked real chemistry and their love/trust of each other seemed forced and rushed. It was a very simplistic story line compared to th

Fifth in the Warriors of Poseidon paranormal romance series revolving around Atlantean warriors making up a special guard which protects the crown prince of Atlantis, the Seven. The couple focus is on Brennan and Tiernan Butler out in Yellowstone Park.

My Take
This started so well but somewhat into it, I started hoping that someone would take out Brennan and Tiernan if only for Darwinian purposes.

It was useful to finally discover what was behind the curse laid on Brennan back in 202 BC and Tierna

Ah, a great addition to Alyssa Day’s Poseidon Series. We’ve watched dear Brennan suffer without emotions through four books and now he gets his chance to shine. Atlantis Redeemed is a great combination of story line, action, love interest.

Brennan is a strong warrior who has been unable to feel any emotions for the past 2,000 years due to a curse placed upon him by the mighty sea god, Poseidon. Brennan remained a loyal servant for Poseidon all these centuries, not really believing the curse would

Brennan - an ancient Atlantean warrior... 2000 years ago he had a part in the suicide of a princess, and he spent months drunk, angering Posiedon, who cursed him as such: no emotion until he meets his lifemate; when meets his lifemate, all of the emotions will rush back to him; will forget his lifemate when she is out of his sight (including in sleep); until her death, then he will remember everything about her... hmmmm

So intense!!! Never thought Brennan would be so extreme. But I guess after 2 000 years of non feeling, you would have a lot to catching up to do. As for Tiernan, she is very brave and stubborn but also lonely, which is why she fits so well with Brennan.
The two of them can conquer anything, even death which they did. A beautiful love story and a great continuation to the Warrior of Poseidon serie. The family gets bigger and bigger.

I loved this story with Brennan and Tiernan! I loved how quickly everything got excepted as opposed to the previous books where it took a little while. Granted I would have been as aggravated as Tiernan to have her lover forget her every morning, but the plot line was great, and the characters were very appealing! I would most definitely recommend this book to all romance readers!

This is one of the warrior's stories that I have been waiting for. I was not disappointed, it was a wild ride and I thoroughly enjoyed the gripping twists and turns. Each book increases in intensity as we pull closer and closer to the war that seems to be brewing.
