Eleven thousand years ago, Poseidon’s warriors swore an oath to protect humanity from those who stalked the night. Now those powerful forces are uniting. So are two souls who are all that stand between justice and the eternal darkness…
Lord Justice made the ultimate sacrifice for his brother and paid for it with unimaginable torture. Now he’s back, rescued from death, his sanity shaken, and his mission inescapable: to search for the lost start of Artemis. But the beautiful human female whom he has sworn to protect is shadowed by an evil that could destroy them both.
The archaeological artifacts of Atlantis speak to Dr. Keely McDermott, sharing visions of life long ago. The ancient revelations have cast her into a world between past and present, between reality and illusion–and, when she meets the fierce Atlantean warrior assigned to guard her, between terror and temptation. As their two worlds collide, so too will danger and desire..
So far this is my favorite book in the series. It continues on with the bigger story of overcoming the vampire threat on humanity and finding out how to raise Atlantis. This starts with the story of Lord Justice, in the previous book he was taken away by Anubisa for an eternity of torture.
In the last book we came to find out that Justice’s big secret was he is also a Prince of Atlantis which makes him Conlan and Ven’s brother. Dr. Keely McDermott is an archaeologist from Ohio, who has a strange connection to a wooden fish carving, and has an extraordinary gift. Justice is from Atlantis, who’s also part Nemeid, which means he has the mind of two souls. Justice and the other warriors fight vampires who want to take over the world. Keely is sent to find another stone to unleash Atlantis. Keely and Justice are attracted to each other from the beginning but they tend to butt heads. While looking for the stone they end up realizing their destiny.
From the beginning of the story it had me drawn to both Keely and Justice with such strong emotions that I knew I was going to love this story. With every page I flipped I went deeper into the complex world that Alyssa Day has created. This is a fantastic new paranormal series that you’re going to love.
Day brings out the alpha in Justice but he is still very much aware of his weaknesses and flaws. He is dominant and he has a great sense of humor. I loved the fact that Keely was almost just as protective as Justice was for her. It had so many “awwww” parts, I couldn’t keep myself from giggling like a little girl.
Keely had a dry sense of humor that I couldn’t stop myself from laughing at. She was also strong, determined, and had so much courage she couldn’t contain it. The bantering between the warriors is another one of my favorite parts. Justice, is well yum! And he has blue hair! *winks* I love it! I loved that Justice cared for her and tried to hold on to what sanity he had left just for her. It was touching and very intense.
You get a chance to fall in love with the secondary characters. I am truly excited to read more of this series and get a chance to read about the other Warriors of Poseidon. The story keeps building you just fall right into step as if you’re right there with them and that was a total plus for me.
Alyssa Day really makes her sex scenes not only count, but makes them sizzling. I was waiting for them to confront Anubisa, but that didn’t happen. Maybe they will later on in the series *crosses fingers* . As the series moves forward the plot gets deeper and clearer. I think I might have an idea where this is going and am looking forward to following the rest of the series.
Atlantis Unleashed is not only has love and sacrifice, but darkness and light. It’s a fun ride and I am looking forward to the next installment, Atlantis Unmasked.
Danielle gives Atlantis Unleashed by Alyssa Day 4 stars!
