Review! Atlantis Rising (Warriors of Poseidon #1) Alyssa Day!

 

 

 

Hello, Readers! Today, I am going back in time a bit and sharing the 1st book in the exciting Warriors of Poseidon series by Alyssa Day! Enjoy and don't forget to add Atlantis Rising to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

First in a critically acclaimed series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Alyssa Day...

 

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?

 

"Alyssa Day creates an amazing and astonishing world in ATLANTIS RISING you'll want to visit again and again. ATLANTIS RISING is romantic, sexy and utterly compelling. I loved it!"

– New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan

 

"An amazing new world you don't want to miss, and you won't want to leave! Alyssa Day delivers chills, thrills, and your fill of sexy Poseidon Warriors!"
-- USA Today bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This fascinating new series is an earth shattering, thrillingly explosive read that readers will want to revisit again and again. The characters are intriguing, unique and sexy as well as bold and bad to the bone which makes reading the story quite interesting since readers have an abundance of hotness to read about. Riley and Conlan have some seriously electrical chemistry going on and their attraction defies the gods and of course defies traditions which puts Conlan in the hot seat. The relationship not only has to overcome that obstacle but has some emotionally turbulent issues intervening right along with all the danger Conlan and Riley are facing.

 

Forbidden love, surprising truths, bitter betrayals, thrilling suspense and heart pounding excitement flow from the pages throughout this fast paced story which ensures that readers don’t want to put the book down. A capricious and scary god puts in an appearance, well his voice does anyway, adding some jaw dropping twists to the story while some evil vampires try take over the human world which leads the warriors into some stunning battles. With vividly painted images that makes the world come alive for the readers, the author has created a fascinating and different world around the myth of Atlantis that promises to keep readers well entertained and wanting more.

Alyssa Day is the pen name (and dark and tortured alter ego) of RITA award-winning author Alesia Holliday. She is a multiple finalist in the prestigious RITA awards for excellence in romance fiction and has won several awards for her novels.

 

ATLANTIS RISING was the first of Alyssa's Warriors of Poseidon novels for Berkley Publishing, and was featured on the cover of the March, 2007, issue of Romantic Times BOOKClub magazine! Additionally, it rocked the bestseller lists, hitting the Waldenbooks, Borders, Barnes and Noble, Bookscan, and the prestigious USA Today bestseller lists! ATLANTIS AWAKENING came along several months together and did the same thing - only better!! And then her anthology SHIFTER, with authors Angela Knight, Lora Leigh, and Virginia Kantra, spent three weeks on the prestigious New York Times bestseller list!

 

Her publisher was thrilled, her family was thrilled (they could eat!), her dogs were thrilled (bacon!!). Now she's happily writing her fingers off, deep in the world of Atlantis, the Warriors of Poseidon, and a new exciting group of allies (??), the Fae.

Alyssa has long been an avid fan of all things Atlantis, supernatural, and in any way pertaining to lost civilizations. When she was six, she told her mother that she would discover Atlantis one day—and now she has!

 

In 2006, Alyssa (writing as Alesia) was awarded the Romance Writers of America’s RITA® award. The RITA is the highest award of excellence in the genre of romance fiction. If we can get this new website on track, you'll see a picture on your right of Alyssa with her agent and editor the night she won the RITA® award.

Review ~ Awesome
American Gods Volume 1: Shadows (Graphic Novel) - Neil Gaiman,Scott Hampton,Walt Simonson,P. Craig Russell,P. Craig Russell

4.5

 

Book source ~ Library

 

I read the book years ago and then I recently found out there’s a graphic novel. Of course I had to read it, but my library didn’t have it. So I suggested the purchase and they obliged. My library is awesome!

 

First in a trilogy (or so I’ve heard), this volume covers Shadow’s release from prison and his introduction to Mr. Wednesday, all the way to where he’s leaving the funeral home of Ibis and Jacquel. For those who don’t think they can do the longer novel version I recommend the graphic novel because it hits all the high points of the story. Because of the medium it can’t quite get all the nuances (obviously), but it’s a really good adaptation. Since I read the book years ago, I didn’t really remember most of it until I started reading this one. Then it began to come back to me. The artwork isn’t really all that for me, but it’s nice all the same. It reminded me of some of Gaiman’s Sandman comics so I did some research and a few volumes use the same illustrators. Look at me! I recognized some artwork! Impressed myself, I did. Lol I may need to check out the tv show now. Maybe. We’ll see.

New Release Review! Shadows and Light (Chronicles of the Light #2) Chris Stoneheart!

 

Hello, Readers! Its Hump Day and I have a new 5 STAR release for you from Chris Stoneheart - Shadow and Light the 2nd book in her urban fantasy series Chronicles of the Light! Enjoy and don't forget to add Shadow andn Light to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Evil Vampires. A Demon Lord. An unwilling tour of Hell.


Kidnapped and held captive in the Hell Realm, Kaitlin O'Malley will do anything to return to the Earth Realm, where her family and life await her. But evil vampires are determined to change her — or destroy her.


Her only chance of getting back to her family means joining forces with an enemy who seems hellbent on protecting her. Trusting him could cost her life.


When loyalties teeter between enemy and ally, can Kaitlin find her way home through the hellish obstacle course of Shadow and Light?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

The second book in the explosive urban fantasy Chronicles of Light series is an energetic and exhilarating read that readers won’t be able to put down. All the wonderful strong, fascinating characters are joined by some evil vampires and a demon lord and Kaitlin finds herself on an unwilling tour of Hell. This fast paced plot has lots of spine chilling suspense, hair raising action and surprising twists as Kaitlin tries to find her way home through a hellish obstacle course of Shadow and Light. Readers are spellbound by the dialogue and the intricacies of negotiation between Kaitlin and the Demon Lord which also heats things up in more ways than one and has readers swooning from all the hotness. New enemies and betrayals also liven things up as well cause friction and emotional turmoil between Kaitlin and The Abbott and has Kaitlin wanting to bow out of the supernatural world. The story does have some scorching hot intimate scenes but doesn’t focus on romance so much as increasing Kaitlin’s potential which spices the story up quite a bit. Overall, this energetic story is full of explosive action and thrilling suspense that ensures there is never a dull moment to be found as loyalties teeter between enemies and allies.

Chris Stoneheart lives in a fifty-year-old house smack dab in the middle of The South, with what promises to soon be a full-fledged herd of retired racing greyhounds. Chris read The Hobbit in elementary school, and The Lord of the Rings in middle school, and has been addicted to fantasy ever since. (It’s probably best we don’t talk about what Chris read in high school.)

 

Chronicles of the Light gives us a world where weredragons, werewolves, werelions, three different species of vampires, and a variety of other mythological beings exist.

THE DAY OF THE NEW GODS by Luke Walker
The Day of The New Gods - Leesa Wallace,Graeme Parker,Luke Walker

 

Are you in the mood for a quick romp through a gory country of cosmic horror? Look no further because this is the book for you!

 

Even though THE DAY OF THE NEW GODS is a prequel to THE MIRROR OF THE NAMELESS, you can read these in whichever order suits your fancy. I've read MIRROR twice now, and both times left me wanting-at least as far as more information about the 3 "Gods." In DAY, I finally got a bit of an origin story and it did not disappoint.

 

A small group of bank robbers has their plans change unexpectedly during their getaway. A huge giant appears, bits of which fall off at random- burning and killing people, but really? That's not that big a deal, because there's also an eerie green mist which turns people into mad, murdering, gibbering things, until it wisps off and people discover what they have done. Then they usually kill themselves. I didn't even bring up the huge, white worm yet! What will happen to our group of thieves? What happens to all of these monsters and how how they did here? You'll have to read this to find out!

 

I've been a fan of Luke Walker's for a while now, and when I was offered a chance to finally see how these gods came about I jumped at the chance. I find this world to be imaginative, unyielding and pretty much insane. It's perfect for me! We all know, deep down inside, that the cosmos doesn't care for us-but what if it were personified? Now it's, (they're) walking around earth, (or floating or slithering), demonstrating how useless we really are and what's more scary than that? Not too much!

 

At a few points, the pacing seemed a bit uneven, but this is a picky thing. Since all of these events happened over the course of one, very long day, it's most likely just me. One thing that WAS even throughout though, was the gore. There is no shortage of monster GOD carnage, human on human carnage and sometimes both all at once.

 

Good times!

 

I thought this prequel was a great way to revisit the Gods in this ultra violent world that Luke Walker has created. If this all sounds like your cup of tea, (or cup of bloody gore?), this is the book for you!

 

Recommended!

REVIEW BY CHARLOTTE - The Helm of Darkness (War on the Gods #1) by A.P. Mobley
The Helm of Darkness (War on the Gods #1) - A.P. Mobley

Andy and Zoey are two normal teenagers living in the modern day—that is, until they’re knocked unconscious in a freak storm sweeping the United States. 

When they wake up, the world they know has been tossed away. Their city is in ruins, strange creatures walk the earth, and worst of all, everyone is gone. They stumble across Diana and Spencer, two kids around their age who possess incredible magical abilities, and who claim to be the demigod children of Greek gods. Not only that, they also claim the year is 500 AS, five hundred years after the gods conjured a massive storm that destroyed most of humanity and helped them take the world as their own once again. 

Andy and Zoey are soon handed an impossible task: To save humanity. To lead a war on the gods. 

They’ll have to battle monsters, death, and their own inner demons to survive and to protect the people they love.
