BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - Atlantis Reborn (Atlantis Rising, #3) by Gloria Craw
Atlantis Reborn - Gloria Craw

Atlantis Reborn is the third book in the Atlantis Rising series, and I really hope it's not the last! We rejoin Allison, Ian, Lillian, Theron, Luke, and Phoebe (to name some of my favourite characters) as Allison prepares to say goodbye to her human life, and take the mantle of Chief of the Laurel Clan. With her abilities, she is able to find out things before she's even really started, which sound like they will have a massive impact upon the dewings.

Falling back into Allison and Ian's world was like wrapping myself up in my cosiest blanket, complete with hot chocolate with marshmallows! This is meant in the best possible way. It was just so easy to fall into the storyline and be reunited with the various characters and storylines.

This book is exceedingly well written, and the pace is very smooth. Allison does her thing, but she also has amazing support from those who have given Allison their loyalty, in return for hers. I still love Phoebe, and Theron is just a grumpy teddy bear who tries to hide the fact that he cares.

All in all, this was a wonderful addition to the series... and the ending? Holy crap!!! So many things sorted out, so many things left open. There simply HAS to be more books. Absolutely recommended by me.

ARC Review Copy

 

Hot mermen are coming! These tattooed shifters are climbing out of the secret depths to claim their soul mates and save their race.

 

Determined warlord Torun cannot wait to claim lush captain Lucy, who mistook him for a shipwreck survivor and pulled his injured body from the ocean. All his instincts tell him she is his soul mate. Now she must join with him and give him a child.

 

Lucy can’t believe the words coming out of this dominant male. He insists her destiny is to become a mermaid queen and mother to his future children. The one thing “destiny” forgot to mention was that Lucy’s a broke divorcee who can’t even have a child. It’s really too bad, because his gorgeous lips are all too kissable, and she’d love to see his iridescent gold tattoos moving as he flexed those broad, hard pectorals under the water...

 

But Torun’s in more immediate danger than a bad bump to the head, and Lucy is the only one who can save him. Their choices will either save the entire race of mermen, or destroy it forever.

 

This is a complete novel with a happy ending. Also, it features steamy mer shifter love scenes, underwater gun fights, and a giant female octopus named Mr. Huggles. For mature readers only, please.

Seduced by the Sea Lord was a unique, refreshing, and different read. I’ve not had the pleasure of read Ms. Night nor have I picked up a merman book before. Both the author and concept where new to me.

 

Hot Sexy Warrior Mermen. Oh My!!

 

The start was good, but a little slow. It took some time for me to get into the book. As for the characters they aren’t overly complicated. Ms. Night does a good job of explaining her mermen, throwing in a little about Atlantis and what it once was, and how the council is set on their old ways when others can see that that way is killing them and they need to change.

 

Torun is a merman and Lucy is a modern day women.

 

Torun defies the Council and he has to work on convincing Lucy that she is his. If not the punishment is harsh. As for Lucy she does a lot of protesting in her head, why this or that etc. It got a little old, but not to over powering to make me dislike her. It reminding me of all women. We like to over think things. I really liked that Torun can sense Lucy’s feelings and faces them head on instead of like Lucy’s ex-husband who dropped her as soon as she was a burden. The romance was sweet. The love scenes are warm and gentle, not over powering.

 

One of my favorite parts in this story are the guardians. They are just fun, adorable, and wonderful. If I lived under the sea, I’d want one as a friend/pet.

 

Their where two things that made me go hmm. One scene was close to the beginning that had me going, oh no are they going to sleep together even though they don’t know each other? Please no, but thankfully the author didn’t do this and gives our hot merman Torun a chance to convince Lucy that she is his destined woman. The other thing that I found strange is that Lucy leaves her Sea Opel with one of her interns on her boat when they go back out sea. This intern is a stranger and well her ex stole the first one, so why trust this person you don’t know? It felt opposite of what her character would have done.

 

Seduced by the Sea Lord focusing on the mythology and the rebuilding of the heroine’s confidence. Its also has a little conflict, a little action, and a bunch of sexy mermen.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

The Knighthood (Atlantis Wars Book 1)
The Knighthood (Atlantis Wars Book 1) - ... The Knighthood (Atlantis Wars Book 1) - Evan Currie Humanity is fighting a losing struggle against demonic forces, and the few survivors have lost all of the technology they once had.
A young girl brought up in isolation sees her parents killed by them and is saved by a mysterious wanderer.

A well told story, if not gripping. The girl needs a lot of things explaining to her (which may be a way for the author to explain things to the reader), but it starts to grate after a while.

For some odd reason the author gives up on chapters after a bit, and the last half of the book is one big chunk of writing.

The Wars of Atlantis (Dark Osprey)
The Wars of Atlantis (Dark Osprey) - Phi... The Wars of Atlantis (Dark Osprey) - Phil Masters,Jose Pena,Rocio Espin Pinar Part of Osprey Publishing's "Adventures" series, presenting fiction in a factual manner.
Looks at the creation of Atlantis, the structure of its rulers and armies and compares with other races of the same time.

You don't actually get to any war description until just over halfway through the book, at which point it becomes a bit more interesting.

Overall, it's quite a "dry" read, considering the subject matter. Well illustrated.

Atlantis Rising
Atlantis Rising - Alyssa Day

 

I liked some of this, but not all of it. 

In this we have a bunch of warriors from Atlantis. There are seven of them, I think. The female lead, Ripley, is a pretty great character. She's funny, been through a shifty time concerning work, has a connection to the ocean, and has one heck of a mouth, I liked her. The male character, in my opinion, was a bit flat. He had just, the same day, finally gotten away from seven years of torture from a sic, headed vampire goddess (I think she was a goddess, maybe queen). I feel he should have been a bit more reluctant, scarred internally, or something than the way he was written. The storyline was good, but at times I never thought the story was ever going to venture outside of a safehouse. There was a bit too much conversation going on for my liking. There was a good deal of bromance going on and i liked how there is already plot twists that will most definitely be the topic of focus for the second book. If this goes well, this could possibly be a reallly grezt series. The writing is decent and I have high hopes that this author will do better with other books in this series. All that said, this story was decent, and there is just enough that liked to get me to look at the next book... if it's available.
