Tantalizing page turner!!

I know it's untraditional to start a review this way, but I wanted to say that I fully support every fan who wants to support their favorite author. With that being said, I want to add that with all the people in the world, it will always be possible, in fact plausible that more than one person will get the same idea or even set of ideas. It's what you do with those concepts amidst your story that makes it unique! 'After all look at Holy Blood, Holy Grail versus the Da Vinci Code - 2 sets of authors with the same research, yet producing different books'. Atlantis Rising is a fascinating romantic fantasy that tells a great tale of Atlantis with its own twists involving shapeshifters and vampires! Allysa Day does a fabulous ob of crossing genres again! While on a quest to recover the powerful missing Trident, the High Prince of Atlantis comes across the attractive Riley who is a social worker, but more importantly an empath. It is forbidden for a Sentinel of Atlantis to fall in love with a human and he denies the sensations that begin to manifest when he is around Riley. Riley, being an empath, knows he is her soul mate and won¿t let him go without a fight. Crossed between love and duty is their romance doomed for failure or will love conquer all! I was completely drawn into the story. You won¿t want to miss out on this tantalizing fantasy!

This is a tale of Atlantis and the chosen warriors who protect humankind. Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis has been held captive and tortured for seven years by Anubisa, a powerful vampire. He has been released from her torture and now he has come home to find the stolen sacred object, Trident. In his quest, he meets Riley Dawson, a social worker and empath, who has just survived a harrowing ordeal with one of her clients and goes to the ocean seeking solace. There she encounters Conlan, who protects her from degenerates on the beach who are about to attack her. The overall story was fairly interesting and I enjoyed the different characters. However, I found some of the dialog to be somewhat sophomoric and it made me cringe more than once. Overall, I am not certain that I would buy the next in the series. This was an Okay book, but it just wasn't great.

    Love at first sight, Vamps, Shifters, and Atlantians... Oh My!

    I enjoyed this book a great deal. If you believe in Soul-Mates and love at first sight you won't have a problem with how fast Riley and Conlan get together.

    Riley is an empath and doesn't see herself as someone who fights on the front line. She fights by helping those who have too many things working against them as a social worker. And she's had a really bad night.

    Conlan is the Prince of Atlantis and has gone through a very tragic experience for the last seven years. Although the High Priest of Atlantis says he's not compromised, Conlan isn't so sure.

    When Riley and Conlan's paths cross they will have to find the Trident, battle vampires, especially the goddess (Anubisa), save lives, and find out if being together will end or save everything they hold dear.

    Although this plot doesn't coincide what's been said about Atlantis, it is an enjoyable read. I hope that there are more details explained as the series moves forward.
