Oh Blood Warrior. I have had the Alexa Montgomery series on my Kindle for awhile waiting to read, but I held off. Why? Well I am just not much for paranormal romances usually. Sometimes they are great, but usually I just find the story to be eh. Blood Warrior was better than most, but wasn't my favorite read ever. It still made me want to read the next book though to see what happens so that is good.
This story was not what I expected. Alexa has grown up kind of normal. She runs to and from school everyday with her sister, no matter how far they live from school, trains in the evenings with her mom, and doesn't really fit in with other people. Other than that she has a normal-ish life. Until everything changes and she is forced to leave her home, keep her sister Nelly safe and find answers to all the questions she now has. She is thrown into this world she really knows nothing about. She has this fire within her that if she is not careful will take over and make her do things she doesn't really want to do. Between battling that, keeping Nelly safe, and trying to figure out what is going on in this new world and how she can help she has a lot on her mind.
When Alexa and her family are attacked one night by vampires she runs away with her sister Nelly and her best friend Jacks. Suddenly she finds out she is a warrior, her sister part vampire, her best friend a werewolf, and they are on the run. They find what looks like a safe haven in Two Rivers, but things don't appear to be what they seem. As Alexa tries to figure everything out she also gets closer to Kayden, a vampire guard in the town they are staying in.
For the most part I enjoyed this story. I loved the world that was created. The different types of vampires and beings were pretty interesting. I can't want to read more about it and how everything works. My one issue? The boys. Jacks obviously likes Alexa as more than a friend, as well as like every other guy who talks to her, but she and Kayden have a connection. They both obviously like each other as more than friends, but Alexa is so stupid about the whole thing. She is afraid of their connection so she doesn't make the smartest decisions. **spoiler alert** She chooses to be Jacks girlfriend when he asks just because she does love him. Only she keeps thinking about Kayden. Yeah. I hate that. She is so stupid about the whole Kayden situation! Argh it annoyed me. Really the problem is I didn't believe that she likes Jacks like that at all. I only saw that they were friends, but she liked Kayden as more. She is just like well I like Kayden, but he obviously doesn't like me like that so I guess I will be with Jacks because he does. So when she is with Jacks it just feels like she is stringing him along when she knows she doesn't like him like that which is a really terrible thing to do, especially to a friend. She loves Jacks, but it is obvious it is as a friend and nothing more. That and she doesn't completely trust Jacks so...I understand wanting to be strong and independent and not wanting to need Kayden, but whenever something with him would come up it is like she turned into a two year old. We shall see what happens with that. Off to read the next book!

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.
