Publisher's Summary

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.
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....
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?

I love this series and I am very pleased that Audible has picked it up. Alyssa gives us a totally different view of the supernatural world with her Warriors of Poseidon. I really loved her take on the Atlantis mythology and how she adds vamps and weres into the mix. The love story can be a little corny at times, but that, to me, is just a part of the "formal speak" of Conlan's people so it fits.The only thing I was not thrilled with was the narrator. Joshua Swanson has a great tone of voice but I think he kinda of over does it when reading this type of story. His style, to me, would be more for a children's story where the more drama the better. At times through out the story it gets a bit too much. I see that he is slated to do the rest of the series and I can only hope he tones it down a bit, and changes the pronunciation of the word em-path. He sounds like he is saying "M-pith" stressing the M and pith instead of PATH. I know it is silly to mention one single word, but it is just a pet peeve of mine.So, my rating for the book itself is a 5 star but the narration is only 3 star (if that). I will round it out to a 4 star total. (I wish there was a way to give separate ratings and then a final rating). I will probably buy the next book to see if Joshua is any better. If not.............maybe if they go on a $4.99 sale.
I also need to mention........for those who are not into explicit sex and language, this series may not be for you.

- D.E.Matthews "Many say I am easily entertained because I have given many 5star ratings, but I KNOW what I like, have my favorites, and choose accordingly."

My 1st & LAST Alyssa day book. Physically painful!

I don???t know which was worse: The narrator or the dialogue. The narrator tried ??? bless his little inept heart, he really did. But he sucked rocks. I???ve been listening to audio books for years, and this guy rivals the worst narrator I have ever heard (See Juanita Parker who is the narrator for the original Dark Prince by Christine Feehan. Great Feehan book ??? pitiful narrator). I can???t believe that the rest of these Atlantis books are also narrated by Joshua Swanson. The man should be selling cars, not narrating books.
Adding insult to severe injury is the dialogue in this book. I rolled my eyes so many times I was worried they???d get stuck in my forehead. Such pathetic attempts at masculine warrior banter and bad, tired jokes were so hard to listen to I threw up in my mouth a little.
This book could have been exceptional. I give the author props for the original idea. Maybe reading this book would have been better, I don???t know. All I do know is that I wanted to physically harm the narrator and repeatedly ask the author, ???Really? Is that the best you could come up with???? Wow - this really bit the big one people. Avert your eyes and move along.
