Overview

As a war wages between the immortals of Atlantis and those of the vampire realm, a Poseidon warrior fights to save his world—and the woman he loves. And no risk is too great.

The desires of a high priest.


Alaric, Poseidon’s High Priest, has made a vow to Quinn, the woman he loves and the leader of the Resistance: to save her friend Jack before his last bit of humanity has been drained. Should Alaric succeed, there’s one intimate danger: he may lose Quinn to the love of the man whose life he saved. But damn Atlantis to the nine hells, he’s willing to put Quinn’s wishes first, regardless of the consequences.

The warning of a threat reborn.

The final jewel of Poseidon’s trident has turned up in the hands of mysterious Ptolemy Reborn, who claims to be descended from Atlantean royalty. He’s about to reveal to the world that Atlantis is real, positioning himself as king. But this magical terrorist is bent on chaos. The only warrior who can stop him is following his own path, driven by the even more powerful force of love. Atlantean powers over the sea could prove just as cataclysmic—for Quinn’s love, Alaric might drown the entire world.

    This book brought back everyone from the previous books and shor

    This book brought back everyone from the previous books and short stories, and was a fitting end to a great story arch. It is the last full length novel in the Warriors of Poseidon series (unless maybe we’ll get some books set in the future when young Prince Aidan is grown???), and I am sad to see it end. Ms. Day promises a short story or two to wrap up some loose ends, and a non-Atlantean character is actually getting a spin off series. I love her writing, and look forward to anything she has coming out in the future. If you like paranormal romance I highly recommend this series. Alaric and Quinn's story is so romantic. This entire series is a wonderful read. All of the warriors are strong and stunning. I will definetly re-read this again. For strong men dealing with strong women this is a sexy series and must read. Hopefully the author will put another series out that deals with Poisiden and the children. I would recommend reading this book if you've read the others. I'm pretty sure you might like Alaric and it's always nice to bring back characters from the past!

    AWESOME!!! A Must Read!!!

    Finally it has arrived, and once i picked it up, I couldn't put it down!

    For me, it certainly was anything but slow! The only thing is that now that Ms. Day has written Alaric's story, will she continue to erite more about Atlantis? I do hope so. I would hope to read Jack's story at least.

    Slightly disappointed

    I have really enjoyed this series. I was a little disappointed in this last one. It seemed to drag a little in spots. Overall it did answer the question of the priest and his love. I can only assume that we will see another one answering the question of What about Jack and what is next for Atlantis? It leaves you wanting the next story. I would still recommend it if you have been reading the series.

    Awesomely Amazing Read

    I have read all of the Warriors of Poseidon books and I must say this was an excellent end to the series. I waited so long for Alaric's book and the wait was well worth it. The suspense. The action. The intrigue. I couldn't put it down once I started reading. Another great read from Alyssa Day. I totally recommend this and all the other Warriors of Poseidon books.

    The long awaited finale to the Warriors of Poseidon series and A

    The long awaited finale to the Warriors of Poseidon series and Alaric’s story.  Alaric has spent his whole existence being strong physically, mentally and magically as high priest to Poseidon.  He has also been celibate.  When he met Quinn he knew she was his soul mate but resisted the attraction in favor of duty.  As for Quinn she has issues with her past and her duty as leader of the human resistance standing between her and her attraction to the stoic Alaric.    
    I have enjoyed this series full of alpha men, sweet sassy women and all kinds of adventure and magic.  If there were two characters more deserving of love and each other I don’t know who they might be.  Non-stop action. Oh my goodness how the strong melt.  A book I will read and re-read.

    This book felt larger than life ~ Under the Covers

    Poseidon’s High Priest finally has his book! Readers have been interested in Alaric since he was introduced to the books early in the series. As a man who is devoted and stays true to his words, his loyalty is earned, not freely given. But the spunky rebel leader named Quinn shows just how worthy she is of his love through her actions and her words.

    When Jack, a shifter who is also Quinn’s best friend is badly injured, Quinn asks Alaric to help him before his lifeforce is fully drained. Alaric knows he will do anything for Quinn, but he has always harbored some hostility and jealously towards Jack because of his closeness with Quinn. What will happen when he heals Jack? Will he lose the one woman he has loved to him?

    HEART OF ATLANTIS brings readers back into a world that is brimming with mythology and history. Vast in its intensely complicated worldbuilding, Day has already created and cemented this unique world throughout the series and in this book, she really plays around with it. Readers are thrust into exotic locales filled with danger and intrigue. This book felt larger than life and I love that that sense of epic grandness was played up.

    In terms of the romance, I was a little conflicted. Many readers will whoop with joy when they find out that Quinn and Alaric do end up together because Day has so expertly teased us with them in the past. However, I do think the author took those feelings of excitement for granted a little bit. Most of the book centers on the fact that Alaric has a vow of celibacy. If he gives in, there is a great possibility that he could lose his magic. As the main conflict in the relationship, I wished that Day had really spent more time on the romance and building that relationship more, rather than making it about whether they will or will not do it to risk his loss of powers.

    I liked that Day played up the importance of Quinn’s relationship with Jack. It just added another layer of the story that fit will with the characters and the storyline. This series has developed well over the course of its run and I think readers will be excited to finally read about Alaric and Quinn. Their story is long due.

    My Musings:

    I have been reading the Warriors of Poseidon series since the first book, Atlantis Rising, was published in 2007. There are now eight books as well as two novellas available in anthologies.  I did not know, however, that this book was the final book in the series until I was close to the end.  And I am not happy about that.  Each time I re-read this series, I fall in love with it again.  I hate the idea that there will be no more warriors and the women who keep them in line.
    Alaric is the very scary high priest of Poseidon. His responsibilities have caused him to pull away from his friends and his life is extremely strict and lonely.  Did I mention that an integral part of being the high priest is a vow of celibacy . . . that has lasted for hundreds of years? When I say Alaric is lonely, I really mean lonely!  Of course, that is before he meets Quinn, the human rebel leader against all the monsters that are trying to enslave humanity, who also happens to be the sister of the wife of the High Prince of Atlantis.

    Confused yet?

    Quinn has been fighting the monsters since she was a teenager and is certainly not interested in becoming involved with a control freak like Alaric.  Fate, however, has other plans for them.
    Throw in a tiger shapeshifter that refuses to shift to human, a half demon-half Atlantean usurper to the throne, and a surfer dude portal and things really get interesting.

    I loved the story between Quinn and Alaric.  Both of them have been emotionally damaged by the things they have had to do in their pasts and neither of them feel worthy of being loved.  Watching them find their way to each other was wonderful, although I thought Quinn needed to kick Alaric’s posterior a time or two . . . or three.  He was so determined to stick with his role as high priest.

    My only problem with the book is that I felt it tried to tie up too many plotlines at one time.  There was so much going on that it was hard to keep track of who was doing what.  I also thought the sex scenes were excessive.  Sure, Alaric has been celibate for hundreds of years, but after a point they interfered with the story.

    This is not a book that should be read as a stand alone.  You really, really need to read the entire series including the novellas to appreciate everyone’s story.  You will not regret it.  As I said, I have read the series more than once and loved it every time.  I will miss the warriors, but you know, Prince Aiden will need his book one day.

    Read the series.  You’ll understand.
