Atlantis Unleashed (Warriors of Poseidon #3) by Alyssa Day
Synopsis: 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 star 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..
Review: This is the second time reading this one and I think that might have influenced my very slow read of it. Some parts were too slow and the duality of Justice was a bit weird. I love the series, but I think this is my least favorite in the series. He sacrificed himself to protect his brother Ven and Ven’s mate, in Atlantis Awakening and was Anubisa’s prisoner for months. When he finally gets free, he isn’t the same, his Neried half has come forth and now he has two voices in his head, his and the Neried’s. Both Justice and Keely have had visions of each other, so when they set eyes on each other for the first time, Justice claims her immediately and she thinks he is crazy. There were no surprises and I guess that is what kept me putting it down instead of continuing to read it. It is also the end of the school year, so things are crazy. I love the series and I am enjoying re-reading them, but this one was a bit hard to keep up with. I do look forward to reading more and if you haven’t read the series at all, please do so. It has stuck with me since I read it the first time and is one of my all time favorite series, which is why I am reading the whole series again. 🙂
