4 Stars

Having read the Poseidon Warriors, I was eager to visit Atlantis once again. This new addition didn't disappoint. It's a worthwhile adventure. 

Atlantis is no longer under water and other paranormal species are living amongst the humans, this first installment is very interesting, indeed. 

Flynn returns to Atlantis after having lived on earth for a few years and finds that he has to go through the bureaucracy even though, he is an Atlantean. In the process he becomes one of Denan's Dozen. A group of elite soldiers who protect humans. 

Eva is a bartender who is always looking over her shoulder for fear of being found by her ex. The first time that she meets Flynn, she experiences feelings that she hasn't felt before. Flynn is just as struck, but he is on a mission to stop the Hells Dark Angels from their dark objective. There is a brawl where he protects Eva and finds that they have a common enemy. Will they work together to stop evil or will Eva keep running? 

I like the premise of this story. It has a bit of everything from the paranormal world. It's also sexy and romantic. The two other members of the team are intriguing, especially Griffin who makes me wonder if he is another version of Alaric who is one of my favourite characters. I would definitely like to read the rest of Denan's Dozen.

Alyssa is a diehard Buckeye who graduated summa cum laude from Capital University Law School and practiced as a trial lawyer in multi-million dollar litigation for several years before coming to her senses and letting the voices in her head loose on paper. She has lived all over the country, including Florida, Mississippi, Washington state, Ohio, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Colorado, Illinois, Texas, Alaska, Michigan, Virginia—and she has lived all over the world: the Philippines, Turkey, and Japan. She loves to travel, and just got back from a cruise to Cozumel (lovely! Wine on our balcony!) and an adventure with a group of high school art students to London, Paris (my favorite city in the world!) and Rome. She currently lives somewhere near an ocean with her Navy Guy husband, two kids, and any number of rescue dogs.
