Grace Carlyle’s world was about to change . . .
Deep in the jungle on the trail of her missing brother, Grace never expected to find a secret world populated by mythological monsters — nor guarded by a sword-wielding being whose beauty put mortal men to shame.
Darius en Kragin belongs to a race of shape-shifting warriors sworn to guard Atlantis and kill all travelers who stray within its boundaries. Yet when Grace stumbles into his realm, he finds himself tempted to betray his centuries-old vow.
Now their forbidden love will either bring their worlds together — or tear them both apart.
REVIEW: I have been looking for this book ever since I discovered Gena several months ago, only no one had it and I couldn’t order it, so I was very happy when I saw it in the store quite by accident. I got this past week-end and immediately dived into it, and then I stopped because the story just wasn’t grabbing, it had a very slow start, however once I bite the bullet (or book in this case) and just read, I began to enjoy it. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I love her Lord’s of the Underworld Series, but it was a good book.
The thing that bugged me the most I think was that I never really felt the chemistry and connection between Darius and Grace. I loved Darius, and barely tolerated Grace. Compared to the other heroines of Gena’s not only in this series but in her other books/series, Grace comes off as annoying, at least to me. The story was also only so-so for me. I can’t really pinpoint one particular thing that bugged me, it was all just sort of blah.
I give this book a 3 out 5.
