Christmas in Atlantis (Poseidon’s Warriors #0.2) by Alyssa Day
Synopsis: I don’t want to need you more than air, or light, or life, but I do. You own me now—body and what’s left of my blackened soul—and I’ll never let you go.
– Dare to Lyric
The Gift of the Magi…in Atlantis
Warrior-turned-pirate Dare is the black sheep of all Atlantis. He’s enraged Poseidon, the sea god, so much that he had to forfeit his ship and the water spirit who inhabits it. For Dare, being denied the ocean is worse than death. Until he meets a woman who drowns him in waves of hunger more powerful than the sea.
After the accident that killed her parents and blinded her, Lyric discovered she had a special gift—that of song sight. She now sees the world in her own unique way, and is able to discover the rarest of artifacts. One, containing a single Wish, could make all her dreams come true. Or it could deliver to Dare—the man she’s falling in love with—the thing he most desires.
It’s the season of miracles in Atlantis. A chance to make wishes come true . . .
But whose wish?

Review: I enjoyed Dare and Lyric’s story. I heard about them when I read January in Atlantis, so I looked forward to going back and reading about them. Dare is a pirate who has lost his ship due to some poor choices and when near death, the only place he wants to be is with Lyric. When he stumbles into her art studio and collapses, Lyric is terrified that she has lost her chance to tell Dare that she has loved him for a while. She nurses him back to health and he whisks her to Atlantis for Christmas. He knows he is no good to her, but can’t help wanting to be by the woman he loves, but it becomes impossible to be just friends. Their story was passionate and sweet. I really liked Lyric as a character, she was dynamic and easy to relate to. She hates being defined by her disability (blindness), and the few times people treat her like something less, she really stands up for herself which I loved watching. Love the series and look forward to more.
