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

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

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
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.

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

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

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

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

Hot freaking damn, Lord Justice can be my dual minded man any day of the week. Lord Justice is a lot more than one can account for in a single meeting. I believe that Day captured him exquisitely.

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.

Third in the Warriors of Poseidon paranormal romance series revolving around seven warriors in an elite guard surrounding the crown prince of Atlantis. The couple focus is on Lord Justice and Dr. Keely McDermott; their goal is the retrieval of the Star of Artemis.

My Take
I think Day is channeling J.R. Ward but there is a bit of static in the airwaves. It's not fair to compare her warriors against the BDB boys, but it is kind of inevitable. I do adore the BDB so keep in mind that I have this preju

With Atlantis Unleashed, Alyssa Day has moved up on my favorite list of authors. She captivated me with Justice's story which is filled with action, loyalty, protection for his family and Keely, triumph and loving sexual scenarios. Keely is the mate he never thought he would find or deserve. Keely is his light to his darkness, his weakness when it comes to surrendering his heart and the woman who saved him. Together they took me on an unforgettable journey with a great ending.

Justice sacrifices him self for his brother who he could never tell and he lands in the void. Keeley has a gift of object reading that causes all around her to think she is crazy. When they meet an the adventure that follows they realize that only together can they be whole. My favorite Warrior of Poseidon. It is a wonderful tale of hope and love with destroying a few vampires in the mix.

This was okay. I had a hard time not envisioning a bunch cavemen with pitchforks running around with pitchforks every time warriors were together in a group! Reminded me of this old computer game I used to play about, again... cavemen. Lol

It didn't take long to get back into the world of the Atlantean warriors. Day does a good job of catching up and filling in any back story from the previous books. There is also a glossary in the back of the book. It's fairly short with just the basic terminology but can be helpful, mainly for the definitions of Shape-shifters and vampires.

This is a series that should be read in order. Yes, Day provides back story but the seven warriors are a close group and they all play a role in each others'

“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.

Terrific! A down to earth archaeologist and a split personality warrior make for a tremendous read. Can she get him to meld his two sides together as they hunt for the jewel that has been missing for eons? Both characters are full and vivid and the struggle that he faces to overcome his twin personalities is a riveting read. All this is set in a race to find the jewel and defeat their enemies.

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

I have sat on this review for days trying to figure out what to say, while also trying to figure out whether I didn't like the book because of the narrator or because of the content. To say I'm still confused in an understatement! Here's what I have figured out so far.

I read the first two books rather than listening to them and I'm glad this was a library loan rather than an audiobook I invested in because I was sorely disappointed in the narration of the book. I will not be listening to any of

What can I say about this book but that it was as good as the others in the series. Granted it took a few chapters for me to really get into the book however that wasn't due to the book being boring but me rather being busy with other things. However once I finally sat my behind down and read the book it was an enjoyable read. It didn't pull me in to the characters though but I did enjoy the book. Now lets jump into the review shall we....
