SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS:
When her home is attacked by murderous vampires, 17-year-old Alexa is forced to leave her mother for dead in order to save her sister. She soon learns that she is the last known member of an elite race of supernatural Warriors, and is thrust into a world full of vampires and werewolves who all seem to regard her as some sort of savior. Meanwhile, Alexa battles a monster within herself that seeks to gain control; a monster that seeks blood.
The hidden city she finds herself in appears perfect, but Alexa's instincts tell her that all is not right within its walls. When she is asked to attend a school of fighters, whose exams consist of gladiator-style competitions, she must decide who she can trust among the smiling faces. And, when she meets Kayden, a vampire she feels undeniably drawn to, she must decide if she can trust herself.
I received this book for review from The Read 2 Review program hosted by the Goodreads group: Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics.
H.D. Gordon is a new author and this is her debut book.
When I read the summary I knew I had to read this book. I was hooked from the start. H.D. creates a very interesting world of vampires & werewolves in Blood Warrior. She keeps the reader's attention throughout the novel with unique twists in the ever unfolding plot.
The story is told from the point-of-view of seventeen year old Alexa. I love her as a character. She deals with so much pain & evil in the new world she is thrust into yet isn't whiny like some YA heroines. She is strong and loyal to those she cares about and always strives to do the right thing.
As the story unfolds, Alexa finds herself drawn into a love
Personally, I found myself swooning over Kayden. He is sexy and mysterious and I believe him & Alexa are so right for each other despite what happens at the end.
I would recommend this book to all lovers of YA vampire romance novels. H.D. Gordon has captured my attention and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series, Half Black Soul, which is set to release on January 31, 2012.
My Rating: ★★★★★
