If you like sexy paranormal stories with a dash of mythology, then Gena Showalter will always be your girl. With JEWEL OF ATLANTIS, she's taken all the things that readers love-vampires, demons, nymphs, sacred tomes, obscure jewels, and queens of evil-and turned it into a love story that transcends the bonds of time.

Grayson James might be human, but he's also a member of the super-secret Otherworld Bureau of Investigation-and he's just been ordered to travel to Atlantis and find the elusive Jewel of Dunamis, which the recently discovered ancient scroll Ra Dracus talks about. Said to be able to overcome any enemy by foretelling the future and acting as a sort of lie-detector test to determine whether someone's lying or telling the truth, the OBI doesn't want the Jewel falling into the wrong hands. So Gray has been ordered to rescue the Jewel and bring it back, or to destroy it.

Unfortunately, as soon as Gray enters Atlantis he finds himself battling all types of nasties-vampires, demons, you name it. If it weren't for the woman speaking inside his head, he'd be dead meat. Fortunately, the unknown woman, who insists he call her Jewel, leads him away from danger, and to her rescue from the Queen of Demons, Marina.

Jewel is a woman who's part goddess and part prophet, but she's also a pawn that the city of Atlantis has used for almost forever in its never-ending struggle for power. She needs the help of the human Gray to escape from her captors, but then she becomes intrigued by the man who arouses feelings in her she never felt possible. Although she knows that she's the elusive Jewel of Dunamis, she has no desire to let Gray know this-not at first. But as her feelings turn towards love, and enemies seek to destroy them both, Jewel realizes that she has no choice but to reveal the truth, and the prophecy that she's known for years that foretells their destruction.

JEWEL OF ATLANTIS is an engaging read, filled with exciting characters and a highly descriptive underwater city. It's also sexy, funny, and a great read. If you like paranormal stories, you'll thoroughly enjoy Ms. Showalter's latest release.

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and really - to me - gave the reader a good insight into what Gena Showalter's world of Atlantis is really like. The characters were awesome - and it made me happy to see characters from the first book in there too!

Showalter's world of Atlantis is a great one, filled with many races and creatures and full of story possibilities. This book was really more about the world than the romance, since the romance felt like it was a done deal when the book started. There is tons of action and many interesting characters, so while the romantic tension wasn't there, other stuff kept my attention from wandering. So-so romance, but super addition to the series.

I read this not long after it came out and liked the premise but I remember not being that impressed. It was ok but got a bit tiresome.
