Rating: Liked it

Searching for her missing brother, Grace Carlyle never dreamed she would discover a secret world populated by mythological monsters--or find herself facing a sword-wielding being whose looks put mortal men to shame.

But there he was, Darius en Kragin, one of a race of shape-shifting warriors bound to guard the gates of Atlantis, and kill all travelers who strayed within its borders.

Now Grace's life was in his hands, and Darius had to choose between his centuries-old vow and the woman who had slipped beneath his defenses and stolen the heart of Atlantis's fiercest dragon.

My Thoughts

When I think of Atlantis, water is always the next thing to come to mind - hence why I chose it for a beach read. It was a little difficult to me to grasp the concept that water might not feature heavily in this book, but, once I got past it and reconsidered my view of Atlantis, it was quite an enjoyable story. Showalter certainly knows how to create unique worlds (and, perhaps more importantly, some very sexy men!). I was not a huge fan of Darius - he's very much a he-man. Grace, though, is a very likeable heroine. This series is definitely worth a second shot.
