Review Storm Warrior by Dani Harper

 Title: Storm Warrior (Grim #1) 
Author: Dani Harper 
Source: Author Request
Genre: Paranormal with a touch of romnance
Length: Novel
Reviewed by: Laurie

Enslaved for millennia by the masters of the Welsh faery realm, the fierce Celtic warrior Rhys is doomed to wander the earth forever. But when a brave beauty unwittingly breaks the enchantment, he is drawn into a strange new world…and an all-consuming desire.

Sensible Morgan doesn’t believe in magic—until a mysterious being saves her from a fate worse than death, and life as she knows it changes forever. Now the man of her dreams has become flesh and blood, igniting a spark in Morgan’s soul which science cannot explain. But even a love that transcends time may not be strong enough to withstand the power of an ancient curse.

From the best-selling author of Changeling Moon, this stirring novel of passion and magic launches an addictive new series for fans of paranormal romance.
Rating 3 1/2

Storm Warrior is a book for those that like more story then romance. I really loved the Celtic world and the characters, but as a romance reader I want the romance in the story to the main part in the world building or storyline. At first you read about Morgan having dreams about a man and then she meets him, but what happens after that it falls flat. It’s not that I just want sex in a book, I’ve read lots of romance books with no sex but I felt those characters romance grow as the story progressed, but not Morgan and Rhys, they didn't even stay together long enough for their romance to develop.

I really could relate to Morgan and I loved how strong she was, but I felt she didn’t want to give Rhys a chance and that she just wasted too much time being apart from him just because she couldn’t see his side of things. Rhys really doesn’t know how to handle things between him and Morgan, but I understand where he is coming from since he has been in Grim form for so many years.

Again a great story, but you just won’t find romance being a top priority. The world is really great and easy to understand so I can see a lot of readers liking this story.

  1. I do agree that romance does play a big role in "romance" stories. Great review Laurie
