Dam was part of one of the most powerful houses of Atlantis before a flood caused everyone to take refuge underground. But it's not like his lineage mattered much before--he had been turned away by his kin and knew little of the benefits of his lineage. But the unfortunate events that have befallen his home have given him a second chance among a new people. One of those people is Hanhau, a warrior who has taken a bit of a shine to Dam. Dam's people won't be content to stay underground forever, however, and he knows their leader--his cousin, Aerander--will need to make a move eventually. But when a tragedy befalls their temporary home, leaving Aerander unable to lead, Dam sees this as an opportunity to prove his worth and redeem himself.

There's such a rich and interesting world here. I found myself so easily pulled in and immersed in the events of this book that it was difficult to put it down. The action and adventure that is here is very engaging and well-paced. And the history and backstory is delivered right along with the story in a way that makes it almost seamless. And several of the secondary characters add quite a bit to the story, as well.

Banished Sons of Poseidon is a sequel to The Seventh Pleiade, but it's not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this one (I didn't even know it was a sequel until after I was finished reading). I do intend to go back and read the first one, though, as I'm curious to read even more about the history of Dam, Aerander, and their people.

Definitely a well-written young adult fantasy--which isn't always easy to find--with a nice sprinkling of gay romance thrown in.

3.5/5 stars. While the boys of Atlantis are celebrating their passage into manhood, Atlantis itself is crumbling around them. There is war in the far outposts of the kingdom, and in the very heart of the kingdom itself there is murder and betrayal. And for Aerander, heir to the King, his journey into manhood is filled with romance, choices, and secrets.

Aerander is involved in a love affair with a boy from another royal house. It's accepted when boys are young, but the expectation is they will eventually marry a woman and father heirs. But for Aerander this is no youthful experimentation, this is the way he wishes to lead his life, even though his father disapproves. On top of that, when Aerander's accusations about the missing boys are disbelieved as fantasy, he brings shame on himself and his house. Desperate to fix things, and to find and save his friends, he embarks on a quest that takes him to the very beginning--and ending--of Atlantis.

I was fascinated by this story. I fell into it and didn't want to leave. Aerander was a great character and a great hero.

I really had a love/hate relationship with this book. There were times where I loved it, and it kept me on my seat. I really liked the dynamic personality of Cleito, and the struggles she had. However, there were other times that it drug on and I had to repetitively put it down and read something else to refresh my mind. Because of the back and forth, I'd have to say my overall opinion of the book is pretty neutral.

I wanted to like this book. I enjoy new takes on mythology like TA Barron’s Merlin series or Percy Jackson. But I couldn’t even finish reading it. It was slow and failed to engage my interest. But I still picked it up several times to try again. Ultimately, there were no characters I liked enough to encourage me to push through. Good concept, but unfortunately, not good enough.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
