"Atlantis Rising" by Alyssa Day

Genre: Paranormal Romance

The Story: Conlan, high prince of Atlantis, returns home after years of captivity only to discover Poseidon's Trident, a powerful artifact, has been stolen by a rebellious faction. He and his men travel to the surface in pursuit. There he encounters something unbelievable--a human woman with Atlantean powers. As if he didn't have enough problems, his irresistible attraction to her may jeopardize his mission and his kingdom. This is the first book of an ongoing series, The Warriors of Poseidon.

My Thoughts: This is a book in the tradition of the Dark-Hunters and the Black Dagger Brotherhood... you've got a connected group of hot, lethal, superhuman men who run around saving the day. Each warrior has his own curse, his own issue, thus leading us through a variety of salty goodness and world save-age while working up to the yummiest morsel of the band. In this case, the morsel is definately Alaric, Conlan's childhood buddy and voice of cynical reason. Or maybe that's just me. In other words, this book may have been only so-so but I have every intention of checking out the rest of the series.

Recommendation: Read for the sake of future and potentially more interesting characters.
