11,000 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?

Listener Opinions

    " Nice, quick, action packed read. Numerous similarities to other popular series though. 3.5 stars "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emily Kathleen | 2/15/2014

    " Potential spoilers - not really sure if this counts but FYI. Seriously wanted to like this book. I love paranormal and Atlantis totally intrigues me. It was going along ok (not great, but I was getting through it) until Riley's sister Quinn showed up. Quinn was so irritating I wanted to jump into the book and beat her up. I think she was supposed to be a little bad ass (?) but she ended up just sounding like a raging idiot. She kept calling Conlan and the warriors names like fish face (maybe not verbatim but something very similar). Oh, and the narrator was awful. Several of his voices reminded me of the evil villain voices on Saturday morning cartoons when I was growing up. "

    " I was a big fan of Alesia Holliday's books, so I decided to try out her alter ego, Alyssa Day. WOW- what a change- while her chick lit books and December Vaughn mystery were lighthearted and fun, the Warriors of Poseidon are an intense adventure! The relationship between the h/h is an interesting read, and the warriors are intriguing characters that I'm glad are each getting their own story. Each book delves deeper into Atlantis lore, the paranormal worlds that are converging, and mission of the warriors to help raise Atlantis again. "

    " I have been waiting to read this book since I first got the email from Borders a year or so ago. They say that good things come to those who wait...and it was so true here. Interesting premise in that the immortals are Atlantean warriors. Now I just need to get my library to get the other couple of books in the series... "

    " Wow! What a great world Alyssa has created. This is my first read of this author, but by no means will it be my last! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 12/23/2013

    " This was ok. It had some cool parts, but I didn't really like Conlan or Riley. I liked the other characters better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Ryan | 12/10/2013

    " I could not put this book down. Having read book four first, I didn't think anything would top it. But it was amazing to backtrack and get more information on the other Atlantean warriors. Thank you, Ms. Day for another excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 10/19/2013

    " Fun, fast paced and sexy. Alot of really great characters that I hope will be the basis of future books. I think I'm gonna like this series alot. This was a good start and I'm anxious for more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimchi | 6/6/2013

    " I wasn't impressed, been there done that plot. Not the best i've ever read but certainly not the worst. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelly | 4/18/2013

    " Man, everyone loved this. Not me. I didn't enjoy the plot or characters at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey Cook Kolbek | 3/2/2013

    " When I started to read this book, I wasn't too sure if I going to want to finish it. In fact, I put it down and came back to it later. I am glad that I did finish it. I ended up really liking it and now what to read about the warriors. I REALLY want to see what happens to Alric and Quinn. :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim | 4/27/2011

    " This book wasn't for me. I din't like the mix of modern language with formal older language. I felt it detracted from the telling of the story. Too bad because I loved the story concept. "

    " I really enjoyed the beginning of this book and all the witty word play and smart-ass attitudes but the way everyone treated Lady Sunshine got a little boring toward the end. Over all a great read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 11/22/2010

    " Wonderfuly created fantasy world to get lost it. Strong, dynamic characters and a heat felt right through the pages! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 11/18/2010

    " Liked the couple, but soo many secondary characters in setting up the "world" really hurt the momentum of the story. I'm still enthralled with the world, but need to take a break from the series to read a more plot intensive book next. "
