"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.
