Atlantis Rising - Book Review

Today a review by Voodoo Bride

Atlantis Rising by Alyssa Day

What is it about:
Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlanteans, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule-desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken...
When she calls... Riley Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She's blessed with a mind link that only Atlanteans have been able to access for thousands of years. Being an "empath" may explain her wistful connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides, and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below...
He will come. Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve Poseidon's stolen trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the intimate emotions-and desires-of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst of a battle to reclaim Poseidon's power, how long can a forbidden love last between two different souls from two different worlds?

What did Voodoo Bride Think of it:
A very nice Paranormal Romance. Conlan and his warriors were hot and the romance between Conlan and Riley was with the right kind of tension and obstructions without getting frustrating. The story was as you could expect from a Paranormal Romance: focused on the romance with a subplot that provided some great action scenes and kept the story going. There were some scenes from the bad guys' point of view that I could have done without and made the story lag at times and there was a romance set up between two other characters that wasn't resolved in this book, but hopefully it will get it's own book.

Why should you read it:
It's a very nice read for anyone who likes Paranormal Romance
