Atlantis and Poseidon get a tantalizingly fresh spin in Day's exhilarating debut paranormal series. Passion and forbidden love collide, making for an inventive and electrifying tale! Day, who also writes as Alesia Holliday, offers enticing possibilities for future adventures in this fascinating new world.
Since Atlantis was hidden away by the god Poseidon centuries ago, warriors have walked the land to help protect the humans. But dangerous change is in the air. Both vampires and shape-shifters have revealed themselves to humanity and begun a surreptitious takeover of the halls of power.
After being tortured for more than seven years by the vampire goddess Anubisa, Conlan, the Prince of Atlantis, has escaped. When the Trident of Poseidon is stolen, an enraged Conlan rises to the surface to retrieve the symbol that will make him king. What he finds on the beach, however, is social worker Riley Dawson, whose emotions call out to him. True empaths were thought to be extinct, so the discovery of Riley's powers is startling. A war is beginning, and sides will have to be chosen. For Riley and Conlan, the knowledge that their growing love is forbidden is another challenge. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Mar., 304 pp., $6.99)
