Daring You To Read: Atlantis Rising by Alyssa Day

Tynga’s Reviews has a meme that is all about sharing books you loved and think other people should read.

This is box title
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?

It has been a while since I read the first book in the Warriors of Poseidon series. I remember being drawn to this story and through each hero’s story I have not been let down. This is the story of the Prince of Atlantis, Conlan, who has just escaped an evil vampire. Dark and deep, he doesn’t want to feel love or longing, especially to a human he has no right to love. It is a twisting story that I whole heartedly urge you to read.

When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

    Hmm, this one sounds good to me. I’ll have to track it down.


  • I had never heard of that series but it does sound along the line of Kresley Cole’s and Gena Showalter. I’ll def check it out!

  • I haven’t read this one yet. I haven’t even heard of it (is that sad or what!). But I am going to look for it at the library because it sounds interesting. And it seems to bring in a strong mythology thread which is something I love to see in books!

    What has been your favorite mythology driven book? I think Percy Jackson has been my favorite recently…
