Eleven thousand years ago, Poseidon's warriors swore an oath to protect humanity from those who stalked the night. Now those powerful forces are uniting. So are two souls who are all that stand between justice and the eternal darkness...
Lord Justice made the ultimate sacrifice for his brother and paid for it with unimaginable torture. Now he's back, rescued from death, his sanity shaken, and his mission inescapable: to search for the lost start of Artemis. But the beautiful human female whom he has sworn to protect is shadowed by an evil that could destroy them both.
The archaeological artifacts of Atlantis speak to Dr. Keely McDermott, sharing visions of life long ago. The ancient revelations have cast her into a world between past and present, between reality and illusion--and, when she meets the fierce Atlantean warrior assigned to guard her, between terror and temptation. As their two worlds collide, so too will danger and desire...

Alyssa Day's Warriors of Poseidon series grows on me more and more with each book as these ancient Warriors continue their mission of protecting the human race from all the things that go bump in the night and working towards bringing the city Atlantis into the modern day world. I really do love these Warriors. I mean, really. It's a group of huge, sexy, fierce men who just make you want to lick them. How could that possibly be a bad thing? Hm? Exactly. lol
Justice and Keely totally grabbed my heart. These two are so much alike in their alone-ness. They've never really had anyone who understood or accepted them completely for who they were--she's gifted as an object reader and he's had to hide his family connections for centuries--and are just wounded and so perfect for each other. And exactly what the other needs to heal.
Both were great characters. Justice rocks a bit of a caveman routine but is just sexy as all get out. He's fierce and in control some ways but in others is very insecure because of his past coupled with the fact the two halves of his being--Atlantean and Nereid--are fighting for control over each other and have left his sanity on edge.
And Keely, though she's not as physically strong, has an amazing strength about her. I loved that she let her opinions be known and was feisty down to her toes and had no problem standing up against anyone who threatened her Justice. Or even him when he needed it.
These two really were meant to be together. They have a history even though they didn't realize it with shared visions of each other over the years and forming a bond through that. It was a nice touch and really added to the strength of their relationship. I loved seeing them find each other and realize they were loved and worth love. Gah. They just totally grabbed at my heart.
All in all, I'm loving this series. It's just what I look for in my paranormal romances--it's hot, sweet and has some nice action to it as well as the Warriors work towards being their home back into the world.
