*** Book 1.5 of the Mythrian Realm. Be sure to read Breaking the Nexus before this!
Look for Waking the Phoenix, the highly anticipated sequel to Breaking the Nexus, coming soon! ***
Nothing is more dangerous than a warrior unleashed.
When Sentinels begin dying under mysterious circumstances, the deaths are believed to be unrelated. Only one man sees the truth: an unknown enemy is targeting the elite group of warriors and no one is safe. As a panther Chimerae, Achaius Rilke recognizes the signs of an unpredictable predator. The only person he can trust is Saia Makan, the tempestuous Sorceri who has driven him crazy for years. But when the killer has set his sights on Saia, Achaius faces the hunt of his life.
Book One: Breaking the Nexus - Review
I read book one, Breaking the Nexus about a year ago and loved it. Warrior Unleashed takes us back to the realms and show us a bit about what has been happening there while Sha (from book one) is stuck in Earth. We get to meet her brother, Achaius, an amazing hot panther shifter - I've always had a thing for the cat shifters. He has set his sights on a Sentinel by the name of Saia and is determined to have her.
Unfortunately, Sentinels are dieing, and he suspects something is up. There is a lot of excitement in here and a lot of love. Predator shifters seem to be a territorial protective bunch and that doesn't always mesh well when they fall for a kiss-ass alpha female type. Their banter is amusing and you can tell they enjoy it as well.
Saia has several near death experiences in this novella, but Avalon was able to keep everything unique and different. The villain was a HUGE surprise, yet made perfect sense. And I just know something more is going one that we just haven't been told about yet! I'm dieing to keep reading.!
This was a great look back into the series and I hope to see Book Two, Waking the Phoenix, which looks like it will be out soon.
