Ursula knew no other life than one as a slave. Could the gentle touch of a stranger be enough to convince her there is more?

Sold to Poseidon at the age of seventeen, Ursula spent the next four years serving as his submissive concubine. She loves him with a fierce loyalty, but she dared to defy her king for the first time by refusing to kill a spirited young girl when he ordered it. Now, she must find the escaped trespasser and return her to Atlantis or lose her own head.

In Greece she finds Hercules, the missing girl's former employer. He introduces Ursula to a world of new experiences and freedoms that she has never before known. Though thrilling and intoxicating, her new lifestyle could only be temporary. She must finish her quest and return to her master before she finds herself addicted to this new, softer love of a stranger.

Prisoner of Poseidon was a great book. I actually ended up liking it a little more than the previous one, Spawn of Medusa (even though that was also a very enjoyable read). So it's official, I'm a fan of this series and I hope another one will be released also.

The main reason for liking this book a tad more than the first book was basically the romance. I wasn't a fan of it in Spawn of Medusa but I loved the relationship between Ursula and Hercules. I was already a fan of Hercules back when I read the first book so I wasn't surprised that I ended up loving him even more. 

At first I wasn't so sure about Ursula because in the first book she acted pretty crazy because of her devotion to Poseidon (that rat bastard...) but I quickly came to like her once Poseidon let her go on her quest. She seems to get her spark as well as a spine back once she meets and gets to know Hercules. 

The thing that I like so much about these books is how the main characters (both in this book as well as the first one) are very flawed. They're not exactly nice people (though they're good deep inside) from the start. Ursula sets out hunt down and hurt Ambrosia because Poseidon tells her to but eventually she does the right thing. And of course I'm a huge fan of the Greek mythology.

So all in all, Prisoner of Poseidon was a book I thoroughly liked and actually finished in less than a day. I just wanted to know how it was going to end, I enjoyed it that much!
