I read this book quickly and found it very readable, but I can't really say that I'll ever want to reread it. I found both of the characters very shallow. Right from the start Gray comes off as a bit of an old fashioned control freak. He always has to be the one to save the day and if it becomes necessary to accept help from someone he beats himself up over it to an irritating degree. Jewel comes off a bit like a fourteen year old. She is insanely naive (even through her experiences seeing the surface) and throws herself at Gray again and again even when he is hot and cold with her.
It was frustrating watching Gray come up with excuse after excuse of why he couldn't be with Jewel. I personally thought the whole living in two different worlds excuse was good enough, but obviously not. For a while there every couple pages he would come up with something new and be totally serious about it. It really added melodrama to the story. I was also really frustrated that Jewel losing an ability with Gray was brought up but it was never really explained why that happened.
Even though I didn't enjoy the characters that much I did enjoy the world. I liked the take on Atlantis and all the explanations of the beings that lived there. There was a lot of action in this book and it was very fast paced.
JoA also does a better job of explaining details of the various races of beings living in Atlantis, and how Atlantean society works.
The romance between Gray and Jewel was much more believable, and the gradual uncovering of their connection is interesting. Jewel of Atlantis will be worth a re-reading.
The eye-roll factor - only one time was a description so overdone it made my eyes roll.
If you like cold, distant, emotionally-broken heroes then Heart of the Dragon is what you're looking for. If you like something lighter in tone, with characters that will make you chuckle, Jewel of Atlantis provides. The humor sometimes made me think of Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series.
I love Gena Showalter!
This story revolves around a familiar male lead. He's the brother of the lead female from The Stone Prince, Katie James. His name is Grayson James aka Gray. He's been sent to Atlantis to find the Jewel of Dunamis which the humans automatically assumed was an actual gemstone. Gray is found to be stuck in the jungle of Atlantis fighting a demon for his life. All of a sudden he hears the voice of a women who is giving him helpful hints of what to do.
She bargins with him that she'll help him find the Jewel if he saves her and helps her find information about her father. What he doesn't know if that SHE is the Jewel of Dunamis.
They go on an amazing little trek through Atlantis overcoming all sorts of obstacles. All the while building an amazing relationship. Pure Gena Showalter signature novel.
This truely was an amazing book!
The heroines were bold, daring, courageous women you could root for.
I'm ready for more in this series. I want to revisit Atlantis again and again!
