The Amazon's Curse (Atlantis #4.5)
Some people you just can't please... I love the short final story of this series and have no problem with it being shorter than the others. GS answered all the questions I mentally posed. She wrapped it up all pretty. She delivered it with aplomb.
Do I believe men reall ...more
Am I the only one who remembers that Zane raped Nola in the last book?!!?!!? And now I'm supposed to believe that they are happy and together and in love and sexy because .... they were both sex slaves in the past!? And they can heal each other, or some crap like that?!?!?
This is the end of Atlantis series, a series that started off as actually enjoyable but has deteriorated greatly since then.
P.S. Also, the Amazons are HORRIBLE people. Abusive to children in order to "toughen the ...more
Heck, I just liked those two bloodthirsty warriors and wanted to see them work their way out of the chains the past held them in.
I loved seeing how Layel and Delilah have been doing in the months since th ...more
Centaurs and dragons and male sirens, oh my!
It's mating season for the Amazons and they all fight to rape (because let's be honest here, forcing enslaved men to have sex with and impregnate you is rape) supernatural men they've entrapped just for the joyous occasion.
We're introduced to the heroine of the story, Nola. Or Nora. I can't remember. She's an Amazon who was cursed with invisibility who ...more
- way, way to short. It's only about 50 pages long
- the story starts in the middle. The main characters have already met, had some sort of relationship that is never fully explained, and have fallen in love with each other but neither is aware of each other's love.
-both characters have special powers that they are unable to use throughout the story. Why tell us t ...more
Zane; a Vampire warrior, and Nola; an Amazon warrior met in the last book The Vampires Bride. They both have troubled pasts resulting in them having issues with touching and being touched by others. The attraction was mutual, but circumstances in the last book caused Nola to act in fear and reject poor Zane. However, not before they had a naughty little rendevous involving Zane invading Nola's dreams...anyway, I could n ...more
I read this short story in the Into the Dark anthology and really enjoyed it, especially considering that I hadn't read any of the other Atlantis books. It's a very sweet romance of two people from warring tribes, one vampire and the other Amazon, who have been abused in the past finding trust and love in each other. It definitely piqued my interest in reading more of the Atlantis series. ...more
hikaye gayet kısaydı, Nora ne zaman Zane ile ilgili hislerini açıklarsa laneti kalkıyor. Sonunda bunlar mutlu mesut kampı Layeln yardımıyla terkediyorlar. Gena'nın her kitabının ayrı bir yeri var, gerçekten harika bir yazar. Herkesin ...more
When the hero asked the heroine if she had ever experienced such a thing and she said no and if he had.. I liked that part. It was a little weird, but his "a long, long time ago" blahblah. I have no idea, they were cute.
I suppose they were introduced or at least mentioned in the 4th novel - the one I haven't read yet. So, I'll make sure to do so asap. : )
E-Harlequin synopsis :
Zane, a fierce vampire warrior, has been enslaved by the Amazons. Nola, a lovely Amazon soldier, has been cursed with invisibility. Now, these two stubborn enemies must overcome the pasts that haunt them and embrace a love that can set them free...
Fifth in the Atlantis series
Zane is a fierce vampire warrior enslaved by the Amazons after losing the Gods games in The Vampire's Bride. Nola is an Amazon warrior that has been cursed with invisibility after losing the same treacherous games. Now these enemies are finally coming together to break free of the curses that have befallen them. Well I wanted to read this novella immediately after finishing the Atlantis series, but I didn’t have an e-reader u...more
Anyways, this story started out with another interesting concept. I normally don't like vampires, but surprisingly I liked Zane. Nola was okay--I didn't love her, but that might have been because this shortstory didn't allow for ...more
In this novella, we see how Nola and Zane are doing after the curses delivered to them after the cruel games of the gods in The Vampire's Bride. Nola, an Amazonian warrioress, is cursed with invisibility; no one can see, hear, or touch her. Zane, a vampire, was made a slave in the Amazons' camp.
Zane is won by one of the warrioresses and Nola does everything she can to try and free Zane.
Do I really need to say more after my review of The Darkest Fire?
Well, I guess I will.
Just to get it out there, The Amazon's Curse is a minor, minor improvement from The Darkest Fire, but it's still got the same formulaic i-wanna-bone-the-crap-out-of-you-and-will-stop-at-nothing-until-i-do plot that all other Showalter and Sherrilyn Kenyon books do. I'm sure some people find it sweet, but me, I just find it gag-worthy.
But, then again, I've never been crazy abou ...more
This was a very short e-book, but sweet also. It didn't seem too incomplete because a lot of the backstory was laid out in The Vampire's Bride--which is definitely a must-read before reading this one. It was more like the last few chapters of that book instead of a separate story.
Her novels have appeared in Cosmopolitan Magazine, and Seventeen Magazine, and have been transl ...more
