For anyone who hasn't read the series as yet, it is based and you have probably guessed it from the title of the book(s) on the lost city of Atlantis and the Atlantean people. The city of Atlantis did sink to the bottom of the sea however the people and city survived with a dome covering them that enables them to be able to breathe and protects the city. Before Atlantis can once again rise from the bottom of the sea to take it's rightful place amongst the world the missing jewels from Poseidon's trident need to be found and returned to it. This story sees Daniel and Serai trying to locate the next to last jewel missing which is a very large amethyst called The Emperor.
Eleven thousand years ago before Atlantis was 'lost' Daniel (a human blacksmith) and Serai (an Atlantean noblewoman) first met. They fell in love with each other however their relationship came to an abrupt end when Daniel was turned into a vampire by his blacksmith mentor to save his life and Serai was taken back to Atlantis which shortly sank beneath the sea. Serai's Father volunteered Serai to be placed in stasis along with other maidens to later become the wives and Queens of future Atlantean Kings. We have met Daniel in previous Warriors of Poseidon books and have found out that he is one of the good guys however when we meet up with him in this book in the present day Daniel is fed up with his life and has decided to end it. Meanwhile in Atlantis the jewel that keeps the maidens in stasis (The Emperor) is seriously 'malfunctioning' as Serai finally manages to awake from her stasis and escape.Read more ›
It's a good read and I will quite likely read the next in the series.
The love interest was strong and sweet and the two characters worked really well together. The continuation of the other characters stories from the prevoious books was welcome as I love to see how their lives are progressing.
All in all this was a welcome addition to the series which I very much enjoyed.
Of course events conspire to keep Daniel alive (or undead). His long lost love he believed died when he first became a Nightwalker re-surfaces (both figuratively and literally). Serai has been in magical status but has now awakened as The Emperor, Poseidon's gem responsible for the continued health of the five Atlantean maidens still in status has been found and its magic abused. Serai not only fights for her own survival, but also for the lives of her fellow `sisters' still trapped in their crystal coffins.
I loved the leading lovers, but the `extras' were also great, leaving me wanting to learn more about Ivy and her son, plus their relationship with vampire bad guy Nicholas. Clever ideas are introduced plus further ancient long lost Atlantean knowledge and magic revealed (after all Serai has first-hand experience). There are some really moving chapters as not only Daniel and Serai face adversity, but also favourite characters Quinn, Jack and Alaric. Good news for fans though, at last Alaric and Quinn will take the lead roles in the next book "Heart of Atlantis" due for publication early 2012.

Enjoyable read although not the most exciting installment in this series. Worried how relationships in each novel follow the same distict pattern - getting a little repetative. Read morePublished on 24 April 2012 by lusaki
