Hot talent Day follows up last month's Warriors of Poseidon adventure with
a story focusing on the exploits of the emotionally and physically scarred Alexios. As each novel unfolds, more details about the path to raising Atlantis are revealed. Day utilizes a nice blend of action, character building and sexy sensuality in all her books. A terrific escape from reality.
Alexios survived his two years of torture at the hands of the vampire goddess Anubisa, but just barely. Scarred inside and out, he has no intention of becoming emotionally attached, but a human warrior spikes that plan.
Grace Havilland, a descendant of the goddess Diana, is unmatched with a bow. Together Grace and Alexios are tasked with training new human recruits and tracking down a legendary gem, the Vampire's Bane. When a high prince of the Seelie Court appears and wants to parlay, everyone is on edge. If the Fae are no longer willing to stay on the sidelines, the danger must be growing.
