Soul of a Warrior by Denna Holm (English review)

Soul of a Warrior

Hello, my dear followers and friends,

this time I'm reviewing a paranormal novel full of romance, action, flying with dragons, new species from other planets, dangerous encounters and experiencing famine and loneliness.

The cover: It has a light blue typeface and we can see a young woman who is hiding behind a tree. Around her is a forest and next to her a black and gray striped cat. The sun rises and she is looking at a lake and high up in the sky is a dragon.

The Plot: Kimi Wicker spends her Friday night like most Friday nights in the McMillan's Tavern, a country and western bar in Oregon, where she is working with her roommate Amanda Cross as a barmaid.

Nothing seems out of the ordinary until Kimi catches sight of a well-build man with long, wavy, red hair and freckles who is alarming her in a high degree though she doesn't know why. However, even though Kimi doesn't recognize the stranger, he knows her full first name she never revealed to others than her closest family members: Kimberly. He also has an odd accent and he is full of hard angles and tight muscles.

Kimi already wants to persuade Amanda to serve the stranger when suddenly a new blonde haired stranger arrives, dressed in black, with very kissable lips and silver streaks in his hair. All at once misty white light out of his eyes is reaching out to Kimi which swirls around her and forms a twister. The good-looking stranger also seems to speak in her mind and the twister is spinning more and more around her. Kimi feels like she is filled with immense power which the outsider declares is a gift just before Kimi is blind for a few moments and feels sick.

Only after Amanda and the freckle-faced bartender with the red bangs, named Keith, help her to regain composure, is Kimi able to analyze her situation and she is able to see fuzzy images after a while.

Without regard to Kimi's feeling, the handsome stranger vanishes in thin air, and the scary prior intruder emerges again. Not only notices Kimi now that he has yellow eyes. No, the newcomer also points out that Kimi is the eillelé, the life mate, of Neyvarre, the attractive foreigner, and that they are from a planet, called Laizahlia. The scary visitor's name is Tallyn and he is a prince of the Tialaeken people. Tallyn is also a Lycaeonican (a shapeshifter with the form of a wolf) and Neyvarre is a Laizahlian. And both are searching for their lifemates because they can only have one love in their lifetime.

That's too much for Kimi whose only remaining family is her dad and her grandma Elena and who only want to live her normal life. And not long after that Kimi, Amanda and Keith are kidnapped by a rogue vampire, named Elias, who only wants revenge and who is murdering the neighbour in cold blood. Elias takes them to a new and unusual planet with many hidden dangers. Here he turns Kimi into a vampire and leaves them with their fates and their only consolation, Kimi's cat Hexa.

What will happen to Amanda, Kimi and Keith?
What kind of a person is Neyvarre?
And how can they escape from the hazardous and desolate planet?

5-Stars, solely for the saucy and amusing comments Keith and the others made and for the astonishing and impressive flying lesson on a real dragon!

Kind regards, Butterfly Mentions
