The Warrior Vampire by Kate Baxter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
After the stellar first book in the series, this book picked up right where the first left off. We get nice “check-ins” with some previous characters, some new and interesting shifters, a couple of mega-magic shamans, and sizzling chemistry between our chosen mates.
Naya is trapped under some really antiquated rules. She’s got more power than all the male counterparts in her tribe but she’s got less power than the lowest male. Sure, they can shift, but she’s got some mad skills. Through some earlier planning, she’s slowly extracted herself from the oppressive nature of the tribe, but her hard-won freedom is called into question when she literally gets bowled over by a magic-infected vampire.
Ronan was on a mission to find his sister, an Indiana Jones wannabe who is on the hunt for vampire relics. Somehow he ends up missing a chunk of his memories and is held prisoner by Naya who claims he was radiating some bad mojo. None of this matters to him, though, because he can feel his soul being tethered by his magical jailor. These two fight (OK, really it’s just Naya that fights), but when they collide it’s magical (ha, see what I did there?). There are lots of secrets and deceptions floating around that keep these two pretty busy. Oh, and to keep things interesting, and Ronan promised himself to someone else before he met Naya. These two have a pile of obstacles in front of them, but it was great to watch them work together. Sometimes you have to work to get a really great HEA and this was a fun one to get through.
