I read Atlantis Betrayed this week, which is Cristophe's tale.  What is the backstory for the warrior Denal? I've read the previous books in this series, but must not be remembering something.  He's a secondary character in this one. From the author's website:

Denal: Youngest of the Seven, his charm turns to grim resolve when a vampire attack literally changes his life forever.

What exactly happened and in which book?  This one hints at his issue, whatever it was.

While my question is about Denal, I'll copy in the book info for anyone interested.

 Atlantis Betrayed (Warriors of Poseidon, Bk 8)

 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.

Hey Jo,

I actually have this book but I haven't read it yet.  What do you think of the series?  Is Alyssa Day a good writer?

I like series, and generally speaking, I like her writing.  This wasn't a favorite, but it was pretty good. My favorite character was the butler.  I always like the scenes where they visit Atlantas and everything is described from the visitor's viewpoint.

SPOILER ALERT

 

 

Was Denal the guy in the first book who had to be brought back from death by the heroine after a vampire attack?

I can see how that might turn your "charm to grim resolve."  Although personally, I might just turn to substance abuse LOL!
