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.
I was squealing with delight when I finally got this book in my hands! This is the one story we have been building up to – Quinn and Alaric’s story. This is the couple that cannot be together because of Alaric being a High Priest of Poseidon and his vow of celibacy. Now new information has come out that says that the High Priest from ancient times was in fact married and had even more power because of it. So do Alaric and Quinn take the chance and risk it all right when everyone needs them?
While I did enjoy the plot and of course the characters, there were several times when I wanted the fighting and the drama just to end so Quinn and Alaric could be together. I also feel that the situation with Jack was a bit rushed and he didn’t have the conclusion I had hoped he would receive. It was neat that all the warriors were reunited for the final battle.
So while this was not my favorite book in the series it was one that I did adore and was thrilled to be able to read!
