This is a really good series. I still need to get to know the warriors better because not enough has been told about them yet. But we did get to know them a tiny bit more, specially Justice. The plot is terrific though. There were some major cliff hangers and now I'm dying to know what's going to happen. The romance is good, not of the best I have seen in this genre but good. There was even a slow part there in the middle, but very short, I got through it very fast.

I really like this series and

This is the second book in the Warriors of Poseison series and this one focuses on Ven, Lord Vengeance, and his soul mate Erin. Erin is a gem singer, which is a rare and lost art, but Erin is being stalked by a master vampire, Caligula, yes that Caligula from all the history books, and they must defeat him, and get an ancient gem that is hidden underneath his lair. Without this gem, Riley and her unborn baby will die, will they get it in time?

Pretty good start to a series. The heroine didn't really come to life for me, but I liked it for the Atlantis lore and I want to see where this series goes. I am definitely intrigued with Justice's character. Why do I always fall for the dark and tortured character in every series?

Oh, the Atlanteans. Major Alphas with the remarkable tendency to find their soulmates within weeks of each other after hundreds of years of alienation from the world above.

First, the good:

STEAMY. This is the word to best describe this book. Atlantis Rising was similar in the steamy part, but was more tender. Thinking back, that is what made these two books strikingly different. It's as if the very spirit of Ven is bound up in the book, no matter whose perspective is dominant.

Now, to move on...

In Alyssa Day's Atlantis Awakening, book two of her Warriors of Poseidon series, we are introduced to Erin Conners, a gem singer witch who want's revenge for the death of her family. Erin was told by Quinn, the Human leader of the Vampire and Shifter movement, that the Atlantean warriors looked like Greek gods come to life. She agreed with that statement 100% when she first sees Ven.

Ven, the King's Vengeance and second in line to the throne, was immediately attracted to Erin when she walked into

What can I say, I love Ven. The Prince's Vengence if you must.
Nothing like a tall tower of strength and sexy poseidon warrior to keep the story going.
Really, I thought this book of the series was written very well. Ms. Day knows how to weave the story web, supplying you with just enough of all the threads(characters) to keep you intrigued and wanting more. We have our lead character, don't get me wrong. But we also have Alaric, the high priest lurking in the back ground, hurting and in love bitt

Atlantis Rising introduced me to a colorful cast of characters and it was evident in the very first pages of Atlantis Awakening that I was going to be in for an incredible ride as the story arc continues. My first thought as I closed this novel was that it isn’t often that I encounter a story that just about appeals to every desire I have as a paranormal reader. Let alone have a heroine who almost outshines the hero…almost. Let me take you on my train of thoughts regarding Atlantis Awakening…

Още от самото начало си беше ясно, че тази книга ще ми хареса повече от предходната. Най-малкото заради главния мъжки персонаж, Вен (или лорд Венджънс, но ако само можеше да си види той името, изписано на кирилица, щеше завинаги да си остане само Вен) ми беше по-интересен от брат си в първата. Вярно, пак си е типичен алфаджия, но с тази поредица си знаех с какво се захващам.
Същото важи и за неговата изгора тук – Ерин. Райли си беше скучничка,

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

Lover of Romance
After I was able to read the first book in the series, I was instantly hooked. So I bought Atlantis Awakening through Audible. After listening to the second in the series, I know that I am going to love this series. I have always loved mythology, and the way that Alyssa Day has mixed paranormal with Greek mythology and some spicy romance, absolutely draws in the reader. The story is about the younger brother on Conlin, Lord Vengeance. Ven has always had the priority of protecting his brother at ...more

Recommends it for: fans of Kenyon, Atlantis based heros
Erin (witch, gem singer) meets Ven (Atlantean warrior) and plan to take down Caligula (master vampire). I liked this story (series) because even for the multiple storylines and character cutaways you still have a rich feeling of storytelling and can't wait to get finished and continue with the next book in the series. Atlantis Unleashed is Justice's story. His long blue braid always had me a little bit curious about "is he for real?" So I think we learn more about his background in the next book ...more
Laurielu Bona Fide Reflections
This story has a lot more action and more darkness laced through the story than the first book, Atlantis Rising. Ven and Erin make a good couple. Erin is a witch one with very special powers and Ven in the King's Vengence, second in line for the Atlantean Crown. Their awakening for each other makes for a good love story.
Yepyeni gelişmelerin olduğu süper bir kitaptı.Justice konusuna açıklık geldi az biraz.Adamda bir tuhaflıkk vardı zaten başından beri.Sebebini öğrendik.Ven ve Erini geçtim en dikkatimi çeken Justice oldu vallahi:)Üçüncü kitap onun.Merakla bekliyorum.

I'm glad I decided to reread this book to refresh my memory of this series. I'd forgotten what a great story it is. Other than a couple of love scenes at really inappropriate moments (we have to hurry to save everyone but love me first!) the story flowed well.
Atlantian Princes, witches and vamps! Everything needed for an enjoyable story!

Amazing story, lots of action and great sex. Ven, aka, as the King's Vengeance is sexy, strong, courageous and loyal. He is a fierce warrior who will die for those he loves. Duty to his king and the protection of mankind have always been his priority. Erin his future mate is a beautiful witch and a gem singer. She is out for revenge against a master vampire who has killed her family. They form a partnership to defeat the vampire, acquire Nereid's heart, a ruby of immense power which must be take ...more

Second in the Warriors of Poseidon paranormal romance series about the elite guard protecting the king of Atlantis. The couple focus is on Erin Connors and the King's Vengeance with Seattle as this story's base of operations. Their goal is the retrieval of Nereid's Heart.

My Take
I do enjoy the guards' smug approach to fighting the vamps. I do wish however that Day spent more time creating a depth of tension. Sure, there's the usual tension from the battles, will the shield hold, who is this god

The thrilling ride continues with a vengeance. Alyssa Day has certainly delivered on the promising first installment of this amazing series. Giving me, as a reader, everything I was anticipating and even more.
This is book 3 in the series, the second full-length book and it left me with a very positive and urgent feeling of wanting and hungering. As the alpha-males in the books say: "MINE", all I can say is "MORE" and "NOW"!
I'm still dazzled by the genius plot, the unexpected turn of events and

This is the second book in Day's Atlantis series and I found I liked it a bit more than the first. It seemed to have a better flow and more action. This is Ven and Erin's story. Ven, the younger brother of High Prince Conlan who is the heir to the throne (from the first book) is a warrior who has the title of King's Vengeance. Erin is a witch who is discovering new powers. She has asked for an alliance with the Atlanteans in order to kill Caligula, a powerful (and of course evil) vampire that is ...more

Atlantis Awakening is book two in the Warriors of Poseidon series by Alyssa Day. This is a good follow after the first book Atlantis Rising. We get lots of action, adventure, Hot Atlantan men, and women who complement them.

Ven’s story. He’s sent to Seattle, Washington with Alexios, Brennan and Christophe to meet up with a representative for the Seattle Circle of Light coven and finds the perfect woman for him.

But Erin Conners isn't an ordinary witch. She’s a gem singer, unknown for hundreds of years and highly valued by Atlantians (and everybody else). I love her character and her healing gem singing. And the crystals sound like a beautiful way to heal and comfort. But sound can be deadly also making her a very
This book really pissed me off. It started out fine, but I felt that Riley (from the previous book) became a selfish bitch with a martyr complex, and it gave the plot a ridiculously disgusting pro-life agenda:

I'm beginning to see that romance novels are not my thing. I read this because this series has been on my shelves forever and it was about time I read it. I bought it for a reason, right?
If I take out all the romance and sex stuff in the story, this book gets a 4 from me. But it was there, so I have to knock it back down to a 3.

The humor is great. There are a lot of funny characters. I was scared Ven was going to lose his personality after finding Erin. He didn't lose it, but he turned into a ca

“През стаята премина смразяваща хладина и повечето воини, които стояха около масата, неволно отстъпиха крачка назад. След близо три века като върховен жрец, сигналът за влизането на Аларик беше непогрешим за всички тях. Той носеше силата на Посейдон, дори когато бе безформен като въздуха и невидим като дъха. Бренан, който бе облегнат на стола до този на Конлан, се поклони леко и се отдалечи към собственото си място. Аларик се материализира в рамките на няколко удара на сърцето – в един момент студеният хлад се спусна заплашително като смъртоносен шепот по гръбначният стълб на Вен, в следващия миг Аларик застана пред тях, а ръцете му бяха сключени около инкрустираните с изумруди дръжки на кинжала му. Той бе изцяло облечен в черно, както винаги, като някакъв атлантски войн на смъртта. Той грациозно се отпусна на стола си.” 0 likes
