Review: Atlantis Betrayed by. Alyssa Day

Reviewer: Heidi Cheramie
Review: Atlantis Betrayed
Author: Alyssa Day


Poseidon’s warriors have learned that the battle to protect humanity produces unexpected enemies--and alliances. And one of the most powerful of all Atlantean warriors will soon find both…in one daring beauty.

A warrior’s mission, a woman’s desire…

What could Christophe, powerful Warrior of Poseidon, have in common with Fiona Campbell, prim and proper Scottish illustrator of fairytales by day and notorious jewel thief known as the Scarlet Ninja by night? Answer: The Siren, a legendary Crown Jewel that Fiona has targeted for her next heist. It’s said to be worth millions, but to Christophe it’s invaluable. For the Siren also happens to be one of the missing jewels from Poseidon’s trident.

And the unnatural evil that could destroy them both...

But breaking into the Tower of London is a two-person job, so Christophe and Fiona team up to commit the crime of the century. As newfound passions fire their motives--and cloud their judgment--they realize they aren’t the only ones after the priceless gem. A dark force is shadowing their every move, and threatening to shatter their trust with revenge, betrayal, and a haunting revelation about the past.

Atlantis Betrayed Review:

I loved this book! Atlantis Betrayed is Book Six in the Warriors Of Poseidon series but this is my first Alyssa Day book. I will read books one to five in this wonderful series. Christophe is a Poseidon warrior and his duty is to protect humanity. Christophe doesn’t really like humans but he does his duty. He is a grumpy, sarcastic, alpha male with a tortured childhood and it makes him slightly antisocial. I adored him! This book is full of humor, sexy chemistry, likable characters and a wonderful storyline.

Lady Fiona Campbell is the feisty heroine. She is a gentle children’s book author by day and the infamous Scarlet Ninja by night. She is a famous thief that steals from the rich to give to the poor. A wonderful take on the Robin hood story. Fiona is as lovable as Christophe is sexy.

Christophe is given the assignment to steal the Siren, a jewel of Poseidon from the British Museum. Fiona has also decided to steal the jewel and the characters meet while trying to steal the jewel from the sword of William the Conquerer. Alyssa Day writes a wonderful, exciting and humorous scene when the two thieves meet each other for the first time while both are trying to steal the jewel.

Fiona and Christophe’s emotional connection and budding love for each other is wonderful and I cried and laughed with them both. Also the sexual chemistry is hot! Fiona is a kick ass heroine as well as a polite lady of the manor. Christophe is the perfect alpha male with just the right mix of tortured soul, humor and hotness!

The setting is London and the book opens with Christophe ‘s encounter with a vampire while sitting on Big Ben. Funny! All the secondary characters were great and interesting from Fiona’s butler/ mentor that reminded me of Alfred from Batman, Fiona’s younger brother and Denal the young Poseidon warrior who has an interesting interaction with the Fae queen. Also enjoyed the Unseelie Fae and their friend/foe relationship with Fiona.

The third party trying to steal the jewel is the antagonist and he is a dangerous evil enemy. Fiona and Christophe must work together to defeat him and return the jewel to Poseidon where it belongs. I give this book FOUR STARS!!! Enjoy and Happy Reading!
