I picked up Blood Warrior from the R2R program on one of my Goodreads groups. I had already heard a lot of people rave about how amazing it was, so I was excited to read it. It sounded like a great story: mystery, danger, inner conflict, magic - all the things I love.

Unfortunately, I didn't find it nearly as thrilling as most of my friends. Every time I picked it up, I read a few pages and then found myself doing something else. I'd switch to another book on my Kindle, go online, watch TV. I just couldn't focus on this book. Obviously I did finish it, or I wouldn't be writing this review, but it took me a week and a half, which for me is the approximate equivalent of forever.

There were a couple of reasons for my disinterest that I immediately recognized. First, the love triangle. This may have just been bad timing. At this point I am incredibly sick of love triangles. They are now a hurdle that a book has to overcome to get a good rating from me. That's something that happens occasionally, but in this case not only was there a love triangle, but I didn't find either of the love interests...interesting. In the scenes when Alexa was with Kayden or Jackson, I felt nothing at all. I don't even care who she ends up with.

Which leads me to my next problem. Alexa went through a lot of strong emotions in this book, and I should have felt something for her. The only thing I really felt was exasperation. I wasn't emotionally invested in any of the characters, and the closest I got to caring was wondering why everyone was so tolerant of Alexa's homicidal tendencies, because it just didn't seem reasonable that everyone would think it was perfectly normal for her to snap and try to kill people whenever they annoyed her.

When I first started this book I was utterly lost. I knew from the synopsis that shoewhere vampires, wolves, and other paranormal creatures would get involved, but at first glance the story appeared to be all about teen drama surviving an abusive home. I didn't think I could durvive reading another story about child abuse, so I alsmost put this book down. That would have been a HUGE mistake. I am so glad I read on!!

Blood Warrior is the first part in the series about Alexa Montgomery and her sister Nelly. They live in a small town in the middle of nowhere. Alexa is considered an outcast by her peers, and she does nothing to change their minds. Her primary concern is for the safety of her sister. This protectiveness has been punded, literally, into her head over and over by their mother. This special treatment was enough to make Alexa jealous of her sister, but any anger she felt towards her was short lived because deep down inside Alexa knew it to be true. Any boy, oh, boy was she right.

There were, in my mind, four critical parts to this first book that make the story, and also make me wanting more. The first part is when Alexa finds out that she is special as she kicks this boys butt at school without even missing a beat. This is mega important because once that kind of information gets out everyone will be coming out from the wall to get you. This is when Alexa finds out that all those fairytale creatures like vampires and wolves really do exist and her sister, best friend, and herself are among them. See, Alexa is a Sun Warrior and the last of her kind. She is a very powerful protector and could quite be the savior of all kinds. No pressure or anything.

Blood Warrior was an intriguing read. It starts out with the interaction between Alexa and her mother, which by all appearances is quite abusive. Things quickly progress when their household is attacked and Alexa having promised to keep her sister safe flees. Alexa learns there is more to their world than the mundane and she holds a place in this new world that is unique. She is the last of her race and must learn to adapt in this supernatural world that holds so many confusing questions. The synopsis / description provides a good outline of the progression of the story and I will not revisit this. I enjoyed the world building, as well as the introduction to the characters of this world. I ended up loving Alexa who learns to adapt and learn from her experiences becoming a strong young woman with a compassionate heart. I enjoyed the author's writing style, which seems cohesive and flowing. The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, but this is to be expected with book one of a series. I will say that I enjoyed this book so much that I immediately hopped over and got book two "Half Black Soul" and book three "The Rise" both being already available.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The style of the writing makes this novel fresh, exciting to read and so easy to become involved in the lives of Alexa, Nelly and Kayden. Even the vampire theme has a freshness to it that lifts the book into absolute entertainment from the first page. It is very well written with much thought given to the action, and the way it is presented to us. The language is simple yet highly descriptive, and the sequencing of events are so well planned that we are never lost. This may be a book for young adults but any age group can read and enjoy. It is great reading and I can't wait for the next one, or indeed any book by these authors.
