All Atlantis seeks the Jewel of Dunamis, which legend claims can overcome any enemy. Grayson James, human agent of the ultra-secret Otherworld Bureau of Investigation, has orders to keep it from the wrong hands—or destroy it. What he doesn't know is that Jewel is a woman, not a stone! But once he meets this precious gem, destroying her is the last thing on his mind….Jewel, part goddess, part prophet, is a pawn in Atlantis's constant power struggles. She needs Gray's help to win freedom and uncover the secrets of her mysterious origins. Gray needs her wisdom to navigate monster-ridden Atlantis. But need blossoms into passionate love as they fight demons, dragons, vampires—and a prophecy that says the bond between them could destroy them both.
Jewel of Atlantis begins with Grayson James, a agent, a human who is looking for the Jewel of Dunamis, which legend has claimed is more powerful than anything and can provide the means to destroy any enemy, however there is one catch. Grayson must find the Jewel which is in Atlantis but what Grayson assumed is the the Jewel is a stone. When he is close to finding the Jewel, he starts to hear a voice in his head, a woman’s voice that stirs up desire within him, even though he is suspicious and doubts that she is real, until he saves her from the Queen of Demons who has held her captive. But Grayson doesn’t realize until later, that the Jewel of Dunamis is the same woman whom he has saved, and whom has assisted him in navigating his way through the dangers ridden throughout Atlantis. But throughout their journey, they start to find a passion in one another, and a willingness to fight for a future together, no matter the cost or the dangers that could destroy all that they have built in one another.
I read this book a couple of weeks ago, but I finally remembered that I forgotten to write the review for this book. From what I recall, Jewel of Atlantis is the second in the Atlantis series. Even though I haven’t read this series in order, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it so far. Jewel of Atlantis is unique, and we get to see appearances of The Dragon King Darius and his bride Grace who is also human. However throughout most of the book, we see a intense plot, where Grayson and Jewel are on the run from a variety of dangers throughout Atlantis. I also loved these two main characters as well. Jewel has been imprisoned because of her certain gifts, but knows that Grayson can save her, but as she helps guide him throughout the maze of Atlantis with all of its murky dangers, and find a love they never expected to find. This was a magical and satisfying adventure and passion, that takes you beneath the sea and into the mysteries of Atlantis.
