Showalter continues to build Atlantis into a vivid world that leaps off the pages. This time we meet far more of the creatures who inhabit the under water kingdoms.Grayson James, a sort of paranormal soldier of fortune, knows that there are weird lands & creatures out there. It's his job to plunder the alien secrets for the betterment & protection of the human race. But when he is sent after the Jewel of Dunamis he nearly meets his doom. The experience changes him...The Jewel ends up being, well Jewel. She's the woman who has haunted his dreams his entire life. She has watched him, through childhood & all the way through adulthood with his dangerous missions & erotic affairs. And now she knows he's coming for her.
Jewel must decide if she reveals her identity to Grayson. They pair up to survive the dangers of Atlantis with absolutly everyone after them. They end up seeking aid from the dragons and we meet up with several well known characters who I hope to see again in more showalter books. What are the vamps up too? Can we see the dragons get naked again in human form? Hmmm, yum.
My only critisism is that the ending was very rushed. Suddenly tho book which had built & built just ended with very little explanation. Maybe it's a tease to keep us interested? Well, I'm hooked!
Lovable characters, exciting places, fun scenarios, are what you get everytime, but with Jewel of Atlantis Ms.Showalter really out does herself. I was enthralled. In My opinion THE BACK OF THE BOOK DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE, it's a much more complicated story line.
Jewel is a darling character who you come to care for, Gray is the perfect blend of Macho and Amusing. He's not too alpha in that it turns you off, he's just enough, and able to tease.
I HOPE SHE STICKS WITH ATLANTIS FOR A FEW MORE BOOKS, I'D BUY THEM ALL.
Gena gets into the heads of her characters so well that she literally brings them to life. Every time I read one of her books, the characters just seem to pop out and I can actually imagine them in my head as I go through the book.
With Gray and Jewel, these two were a wonderful, passionate pair. His need to help the damsel, but never really letting his greed get in the way of what he truely wants. You feel his pain, you feel hers and you can not help but root for them and then feel like you want to slap them for making the bad decision, heh. I love the humor that Gena has herself and that she places in her characters to really make the characters and the story interesting.
Thank you Gena!
The heroines were bold, daring, courageous women you could root for.
I'm ready for more in this series. I want to revisit Atlantis again and again!
