Legend claims the Jewel of Dunamis can overcome any enemy. Grayson James has orders to keep it from the wrong hands – or destroy it. He doesn’t know that the Jewel is actually a woman, not a stone! But once he meets this precious gem, destroying her is the last thing on his mind...
Jewel 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 demon, dragons, vampires – and a prophecy that says the bond between them could destroy them both.
This one sorta comes off the last one, where the humans where in Atlantis where they shouldn’t have been. Gray is a human solider sent to find the Jewel of Atlantis only to come across a woman he couldn’t help but help.
The book is all about them, Jewel has watched him her whole life, she couldn’t help it, it was part of her gifts. And Gray is more than what she thought him to be, but she knows he’s after her and doesn’t know what to do about them.
So she helps him out. He gets her to safety and she will take him to the Jewel.
The story is all about Gray falling in love with her. And a past they never had but was always there. It’s sweet and....I don’t know, but I loved this book, it surpasses the first one by a mile, and considering that one was great, is saying something.
The tangle and fights pull you into one direction while the lust and love from both characters makes you fall in love and hope for things that can’t happen.
Really, it’s a beautiful book and shows just how amazing a writer Showalter is.
