Arik is a Skotos, a god who travels through human dreams. Cursed by Zeus never to feel emotion, they visit the dreams of human to experience emotions through them. He meets a woman whose dreams are vivid and he feels her emotions as his own. So he can meet her, he strikes a bargain with Hades – a soul for a body. Only he doesn’t realise it’s her soul.

Megara Kafieri’s father was obsessed with finding the lost city of Atlantis despite being dismissed as a crank by everyone, including his daughter. Geary’s father left her a few objects from Atlantis he discovered and she continued his quest to find Atlantis. But the gods don’t want Atlantis to be found. It would lead to Apollymi being released, causing an apocalypse.

It was a fun read, I enjoyed how they met – heroine saving the hero’s life – and it’s not a typical romance. There was an interesting plot, the search for Atlantis and Arikos discovering emotions and human life. There was also plenty of action, with a number of fight scenes. This is the first of the Dream-Hunter series and it predates the Dark-Hunter series, though many characters from that series were prominent in the book.

Like all books in the Dark-Hunter series there are quite a few steamy scenes. As it’s the first in a new series you don’t need to have read the Dark-Hunter series, but it would help with background on some characters if you had. Another book by Sherrilyn Kenyon that is hard to put down.
