I was surprised how much I enjoyed Gabriel. The author brought two world together that were able to mash into mix of wonder, passion, adventure and romance. Reader will be pulled into the world of Magic, vampires, Japanese mafia, and two enemies that have to work together to fight the darkest of evils.
The story will pull readers in with Hana who is devoted to someone she has never met but has seen every day of her life. Gabriel is a warrior from another times or place who has watched as Hana grown hoping to one day hold her. Each character is strong, has the ability to connect with readers.
The one down side is the endless pages of very graphic sex. While I understand that sex is part of the paranormal romance or in fact all romance stories. The sex scenes take over a majority of the book that will leave some reader wishing for more background story, understanding of Hana's gift instead readers are giving a endless amount of biting, sex and graphic moments of blood.
I would have giving this book a solid 5 if the story could have had less sex and more Hana's magical gift and teaching of her powers.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher ImaJinn Books for the advance copy of D.B. Reynolds Gabriel.
That is Raphael’s cue to make an entrance; for he is not smelly (thank goodness), he is not disreputable, and he is definitely not glittery. He is sexy and powerful and totally capable of aiding Hana and Gabriel in their fight against Sotiris. Sorcerer Nicodemus Katsaros is the warrior who led the others in battle in ancient times and has been searching for the four stone warriors since. Nico’s magic will aid Hana in developing her magic control. He will also fight Sotiris along with Raphael.
This offering in The Stone Warriors series starts off with Hana running for her life with Gabriel, newly released from his stone prison, and hardly gives the reader a breath as they fight their way to safety from Japan to Malibu where they hope Raphael can help vampire Gabriel. However no place is safe for Hana as long as the evil sorcerer Sotiris is after her.
Once you start with this series it becomes addictive. The action, suspense, the sensuous sex, the romance and love all add up to pure addiction. You can easily read this book as a standalone but I don’t recommend that. You need to start with THE STONE WARRIORS:DAMIEN and then KATO. I recommend this not because this book lacks sufficient background but because these two warriors appear in this book and I want you to be immersed in their stories as well as Gabriel’s. Then we can all wait anxiously for Stone Warrior Dragan. I also have it on good authority that my heart throb, book boyfriend Nick Katsaros will lso get his book in this series.
If you are new to this author you will want to read more of Raphael and his mate Cyn in the Vampires in America Series. Start with RAPHAEL and enjoy sexy, powerful non-sparkly vampires and the women who bring them to their knees.
I received this book free for review from the publisher.
I voluntarily read an advanced copy.
An interesting premise and pretty well executed, but this felt a little too open ended on both ends. I didn't feel like I had gotten a full story even when the major plot points were wrapped up because nothing felt like a beginning, middle, and end. This is a personal preference of mine, but I like novels to stand on their own, even when they are a part of a greater series.
On a technical point, there were way too many instances of repeat information, where a character will think something and another character or characters will reinforce that thought almost verbatim to the original thought. It set up an uncomfortable pattern. On a related note, the profanity was limited and repetitive...as in everyone only seemed to know one word. That made it not feel natural or complementary to the tale.
A good story, enjoyable, with quite a bit of heat, but could be a little better crafted.
Gabriel is a progressive partner in spite of being born all those centuries ago. He allowed Huna to make her own choices and did not force his expertise down her throat. He accepted who he was readily, and was not afraid to take up a new path with a new lord and a new way of life and still embrace his old comrades as brothers. Huna was all about her man.
