REVIEW

"Ms. Day builds an enthralling and solidly built world"

Still suffering from the loss of her brother by the hands of vampires, Grace Havilland has joined the rebel camps in an effort to help destroy those who took her brother from her. As a descendent of the goddess Diana, Grace's aim with bow and arrow -- a magical gift bestowed from the goddess herself -- is ever true and she has become a leader in her own right. Convinced that she has no room in her life for love, Grace does all she can to avoid the one person who has a chance of piercing the armor she's built around her heart -- the Atlantean warrior, Alexios.

Having survived for two years as a prisoner of the Anubis, a vampire and goddess of Chaos, Alexios is left scarred and battered, both physically and emotionally. Upon being rescued by his brethren, Alexios makes a vow of celibacy to his god, Poseidon. However, Alexios never anticipated meeting up with the very lovely -- and deadly -- Grace. After meeting Grace, Alexios is determined to keep his distance, but it seems fate has other plans for him. When Alexios is assigned to Grace's group to help teach the young recruits to fight, Alexios can no longer deny the pull that seems to be wrecking havoc on him and his vows. He wants Grace with a passion he has never known.

As Grace and Alexios join forces to fight the vampires and steal back the Vampire's Bane -- one of the gems required for Atlantis to return to the surface -- from one of the vampire leaders, they can no longer fight the attraction and heat that has been building between them for months. But can Grace move past her need for vengeance in order to let Alexios into her life, and can Alexios somehow find a way past the vows he's made to his own god -- and the darkness he feels lurks within him -- in order to pursue the beautiful and brave, Grace?

I really enjoyed this story between two warriors who are both coming to terms with their own pain and suffering. Grace is a warrior in her own right and refuses to cower or take a back seat in all the action. Ms. Day builds an enthralling and solidly built world that sucked me right into the book and I look forward to the continuing Atlantean saga when ATLANTIS REDEEMED releases next year.

SUMMARY

When two worlds collide…Atlantis is unmasked.

Poseidon’s warriors swore an oath eleven thousand years ago to protect humanity from those who stalked the night. Yet when a woman with an ancient Gift dares to claim the heart of one of Poseidon’s fiercest warriors, the world teeters on the knife’s edge between desire and darkness . . .

A warrior scarred…Alexios survived two years of unspeakable torture at the hands of a vampire goddess. Now he’s been ordered to team up with a beautiful warrior and take on the most dangerous mission of his life: to retrieve the Vampire’s Bane. Without it, Atlantis can’t ascend to the surface and take its rightful place in the world. But when evil threatens, will Alexios be led by duty—or his heart?

A descendant of Diana…Grace is part of the rebellion against the vampires and shape-shifters trying to take over her world. She is deadly with her bow, because when she takes aim, she never misses her target. But suddenly she’s focused on a damaged Atlantean warrior who sees her as a weapon, not as a woman. When thousands of lives are on the line, will passion overrule, or will her aim still be true?
