REVIEW

"An intriguing romantic twist on the Atlantis legend."

Conlon is high Prince of Atlantis and just returned after seven years in the clutches of Anubisa the evil vampire goddess. His warriors while happy to have him back are not sure they can trust him after being tortured for so long. However his personal healer/friend, Alaric, and high priest to Poseidon has given a clean bill of physical and mental health.

Learning that Poseidon's trident has been stolen, Conlon leaves almost immediately for the surface not waiting for his warriors who soon follow. With out the trident, Conlon cannot ascend to the throne. However once upon the surface his mind is bombarded with heavy emotions of another. At first it disorients him, until he realizes who ever it is, is in danger.

Riley Dawson, an empath and works as a social worker, is seeking some solace and relief from her day where she witnessed the death of her client. She knows there is a curfew for humans at night because of the vampires and shape shifters that now inhabit their world. But because of the extreme pain and stress she goes to the beach anyway for Riley has always felt much peace when she is near the water. Unfortunately, the curfew is there for a reason and now there are a few unsavory characters that have spotted her and are closing in quick.

Riley is no flower and she knows how to defend herself, but she is outnumbered and there is only so much self defense can offer. Determined not to give up she prepares to take a self defense stance. It is then that Conlon appears and saves the day. Feeling grateful, stunned and confused, Riley realizes she has a strong connection to this man's mind and reaches out to find out more. Conlon realizes this woman has touched him at a personal level that no other has, and that simultaneously stirs his lust and scares him. Could she be a tool to destroy him or is she his perfect match?

Alyssa Day's book Atlantis Rising was an intense, fascinating and sometimes gritty, romantic read. I truly enjoy the alpha in her warriors but even further appreciated the women who did not cave or cater to it. The intensity of this book, for me, was due to the villains that are so over the top evil. You can't help but cheer on the warriors as they fight for justice and the safety of our world. It is quite obvious there are many more stories to be told and that Ms. Day has created a world and warriors to help satisfy that craving for more books.

SUMMARY

**2007 HONORABLE MENTION - BEST MAGICAL/FANTASY**

Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlantaens, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule-desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken…

When she calls…
Riley Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She's blessed with a mind link that only Atlantaens have been able to access for thousands of years. Being an "empath" may explain her wistful connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides, and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below…

He will come.
Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve Poseidon's stolen Trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the intimate emotions-and desires-of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst of a battle to reclaim Poseidon's power, how long can a forbidden love last between two different souls from two different worlds? Genre: Paranormal Romance, Fantasy
