Book Description

Allison La Crosse, beginning a challenging family medicine residency, leaves the protection of her family. With the transfer, her worst nightmares come true. Her closely guarded mystical talents - those which seldom appeared before the move - unleash themselves from her confinement and reveal their presence with very little provocation. Allison's most terrifying power is her compulsion to cure the dying with her touch. Given her career, this gift would be valuable if she were not drawn like a magnet to the ailing person's every symptom. Some of which are fatal.

At the hospital and surrounded by life-and-death emergencies, Allison's inability to manage her impulse turns deadly. When it does, her mentor, Brody, rescues her from her own demise. His resuscitation ignites an exciting and tempestuous bond between them.

Desperate for a cure, they join forces and embark upon a journey to uncover the origins of Allison's lethal curse. In the midst of their adventure, Allison exposes a secret pursued by many...known by few.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

If healing a dying person could kill you, would you do it? That is the question Dr. Allison La Crosse must ask herself every time she gives in to her compulsion to save people who are near death. By saving them, she agrees to take on their every symptom... even if those symptoms could cost her life.

Journey with Allison as she learns about her ability, falls in love, battles death, and endures heartbreak. There is no stone left unturned when it comes to the trials and tribulations she must endure. Every one of them more unbelievable than the other and more exhilarating to read.

As the author of this unique, genre-crossing, series, I can tell you there's a little bit of everything (from paranormal to fantasy to thriller to action to jaw-dropping romance) embedded within Warriors of the Cross, Guardians of the Cross, and Enemies of the Cross. They are all filled with enough page-turning excitement to keep the reader going until the very last page of Enemies of the Cross. At which time, the reader will be begging for a quicker release date for Dark Angels of the Cross.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story with a great twist April 22, 2011
    By Scott
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I thought Warrior of the Cross was a fantastic read with a great story and a believable voice. Allison wasn't the usual whiney character we often meet in YA and paranormal literature nowadays. She had fears like everyone else, but she also had a strength in her that allowed her to be there for her dying brother and her emotionally suffering sister going through the motions of a divorce. I liked Allison's empathy for others, but also the fact that she wasn't oblivious to danger. This made her seem real and clever to me.
    The twist involving Allison's true heritage was interesting. There were plenty of clues throughout the story, but I didn't see its magnitude until the very end.
    All in all, a great read.

    *Spoiler alert*

    Warrior of the Cross is the story of Allison, a young woman who's eager to learn all about curing the ill by starting a hospital placement in Galveston. Medicine has always been part of Allison's life, not just because her family's involved with it, but also because she possesses psychic abilities that involve drawing Allison to a sick person like a magnet, literally urging her to touch those dying in her compulsion to cure them, which she does through her touch that usually leaves her distraught, faint and weak.
    Allison's ability to alert her of oncoming danger has kept her awake for the past few weeks. At this point, she doesn't know that it's just a premonition, just like the one she had when her brother, Brion, almost died from internal bleeding after a fall from a cliff. But this time, it's not about saving someone else; it's about saving her own life.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Are You Kidding Me? June 24, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I'm astounded that people actually rated this novel as 5 stars. The plot had potential, but was executed horribly. The 1st person POV was choppy and "off" - it was way too formal for 1POV. The dialogue between characters was unrealistic and, again, very choppy and lacking conversational flow.

    More than that, it was *SO SLOW*. I got through the first half of the book fine, wrapped up in the love triangle between the three main characters. Even that was annoying though. Around and around it went, with the heroine in total awe and love over the main character, to wanting nothing to do with him, to loving him again... get on with it already! After that, I just wanted answers about her "affliction" and FINALLY got some at the end (87% into the book, in case you're wondering).

    On another note, the formatting was off on the Kindle, no matter the text size. The author seemed to like to italicize random words throughout the text, but not quite the right words to emphasize the points. Overall, just really frustrating all around. I'm disappointed I spent so many hours devoted to reading this book.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Good concept, but execution not so good June 21, 2011
    By DLynn
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I wanted to like this book. The idea of good-vs-evil played out in a medical setting where doctors can heal with a touch sounds great. But the book fell flat for me. I kept waiting for the author to get on with the story. Instead 85% of the book was about how confused and upset the lead characters were. It left me confused and upset also. My Kindle told me I was at 89% thru the book when there finally was a chapter that made sense: "Oh, THAT'S what's going on, great, now I can watch the drama play out." Unfortunately, the next chapter went back to "Huh, where did THAT come from?" (and not in a good way).

    Also, the book could use some editing. The names of characters get swapped in several places: Is that Betty or Gillian who's being nasty to Allie? And, Allie knows a lot about Trevor that the reader is assumed to know also...but the book doesn't give that information until several chapters later.

    I was looking forward to reading this one. Unfortunately, after plowing all the way thru it, I dumped it into my "Not Favorites" collection. :-(

    5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome New Fresh Paranormal Romance June 15, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    If you are looking for a fresh paranormal romance thriller, Warriors of the Cross delivers. I found the summary of this book to be intriquing. Allison La Crosse is a resident doctor who was born and raised in a big family full of love in LA. She gets her residency at a University Hospital in Galveston, TX and moves there by finding a room to rent sight unseen. When she arrives she meets Clark her landlord who is a medical malpractice lawyer and has an instant connection with him. Clark is makes Allie feel as though she has know him her whole life and they fall into an instant friendship. At her residency, she has the stereotypical mean girls and one very hot chief resident, Brody. Allie met Brody as he stormed out of Clark's just as she arrived in Galveston. Brody is extremely attractive and sets Allie afire with intense looks and alternatingly avoiding her.

    Besides the Romance, there are many layers to this fresh plot. It takes place in a hospital and there are medical patients and cases coming going like a really good episode of ER. The descriptions are both realistic and enthralling. It really reads well and I didn't want to put it down. When I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about the characters and plot. There begins to be a mysteriousness surrounding Allie's dreams and strange healing abilities. She seems to take on the patient's symtoms and therefore suffers with each healing. Brody helps her through and Clark is the ever present friend. There are several clues about the real struggle than is the another plot of good and evil going on such as shadows, pulsing bright radiant light, and ornate crosses. This books is so good I refuse to ruin it with any other spoilers about the plots.

    It was too bloody to be rated higher. Yes, I'm sure it was like that but, you needn't make it that bad. If you like lots of ghastly deaths you'll enjoy it.

    Interesting plot idea, but the writing is dominated by teenage-type hormonal characters and is so poorly written and edited, it is painful to read.
