Atlantis Rising: The Warriors of Poseidon (Berkley Sensation)
Atlantis Rising by Alyssa Day

Let me just say I really enjoyed this book. It was a nice change in direction from straight vampire and werewolf books. In this series the vampires are the bad guys, they were created by the goddess of Death, Anubisa (one majorly messed up chick, sadist to the nth degree). But the heros of this book are from the kingdom of Atlantis. They follow the god Poisidon and have power over water (along with some other specialized power based on the person). I just wish this book had been longer. Ms Day spent a lot of time on the backstories which was great and needed, but I also wanted more time in the current story. This can be the beginning of a great series, I am interested to see where she goes with it.

Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlanteans, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule-desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken...
When she calls... Riley Dawson is more than a dedicated Virginia Beach social worker. She's blessed with a mind link that only Atlanteans have been able to access for thousands of years. Being an "empath" may explain her wistful connection to the roiling waves of the ocean, the sanctuary it provides, and the sexual urges that seem to emanate from fathoms below...
He will come.
Conlan, the High Prince of Atlantis, has surfaced on a mission to retrieve Poseidon's stolen trident. Yet something else has possessed Conlan: the intimate emotions-and desires-of a human. Irresistibly drawn to the uncanny beauty, Conlan soon shares more than his mind. But in the midst of a battle to reclaim Poseidon's power, how long can a forbidden love last between two different souls from two different worlds?
