During their escape, aided by Jack, Alexa learns that she’s the last of a race of supernatural warriors, people who possess the positive traits of nearly all other supernatural races, and she’d apparently the ‘chosen’ one whose destiny is to ‘save’ all the others. What this means, she has no idea, but she quickly discovers that she has abilities not possessed by others—she’s inhumanly fast, and capable of defeating fighters twice her size. Her problem, she’s not sure what she’s been ‘chosen,’ for, nor is she sure she wants this responsibility.
The more she learns, though, the more she is determined to ‘fix’ the world she knows, even if it means leaving those she loves behind.
Blood Warrior by H. D. Gordon is a pulse-tingling young adult fantasy. The graphic violence and blunt discussion of male-female relationships demand that parents exercise discretion about allowing young teens or pre-teens to read it; but it’s an entertaining story that will delight maturing and mature readers. I particularly liked the way the author integrated the supernatural world with the modern world in a way that is almost believable.
This book was okay I guess. Honestly, and I know this is gonna sounds rude but I need to let this out, I forgot the whole thing shortly after reading it. I had to re-read the blurb to jog my memory. This is a thing that rarely happens to me so when it did I knew that I wasn’t going to have nice things to say about this story.
First off, the world building was sub-par for me. And that’s saying a lot because I’m one of those people that doesn’t really like world building. I like an author to give me just enough that I can fill in the blanks. But I don’t feel I even got that. It seemed all very rushed and intuitive. But like so intuitive an outsider (such as me) is thinking, “Okay, but how do you know that’s right?” Am I making sense?
Second, I didn’t really get why her not knowing what she was, was such a huge deal. It was never really explained to us. So when things don’t make sense or are never really explained, I tune out of the story. I almost DNF’d the book TBH but I was at like 75% in and I thought, might as well see if it turns around. Plus, I have had A LOT of DNF’s recently and I wanted to get out of my funk.
Third, it was unoriginal and a bit tropey. And while I am not a hater of tropes in general,(an author can make me LOVE a trope if written well) the lack of originality just made it a run of the mill read for me. I feel like a dick for this review but this is how I feel. Not a fit for me.
This book was okay. It starts out really good, the story line is very interesting and the characters are awesome. But then I felt like towards the middle it jumps into some weird high school drama fest, and at the beginning that wasn't at all what it felt like the book was going to be about. However, towards the end it kind of changes again, although it kind of leaves us with a cliffhanger.
I have to say the over all story was okay, the characters were pretty awesome. Although Alexa and her choice in guys was annoying at times. But other than that I did like it, but I'm not sure I will read more in the series.
I really like this series. Never hesitated to buy each book on my kindle and I consider myself quite the penny-pincher. The two sisters are very loveable, and very much different from each other. I truly found Alexa's personality refreshing, as well as Nelly's. I have never read a paranormal book like this before, and I was truly blown away. In paranormal books (lately), they all seem the same. This author mixes it up a bit, while keeping some of the creatures the same to now-a-days typical mythical creatures (if that makes any sense). The romance is hot, but tasteful. Author made it so you felt what the characters felt. The story building was amazing. I'd highly recommend this series to everyone who asks for my input.
