Brenda Trim and Tami Julka write a fantastic tale in the first book of the Dark Warrior Alliance series. Dream Warrior is the building point of the series where the writers being introducing the reader to the characters and the world in which they find themselves. Dream Warrior was a pleasure to read and hard to put down. I am looking forward to the rest of the series as the authors build an interesting and engaging plot line that is easy to immerse yourself in. The characters are easy to like and the story is easy to follow with the intimate screens that burn up the pages.
Elsie Hayes is a woman who is barely surviving after the death of her husband. She puts herself in danger almost every night trying to defend humanity against the dangers she now knows exist. Zander is the Vampire King and realizes quickly that Elsie will play an important part in his future and the future of the supernatural beings that share their world. He must try to find a way to keep her alive while she is looking for ways to kill the evil beings that inhabit the world. As each of their world changes they must determine if their feelings are worth fighting for.
Along the edges of darkness, a war of attrition rages between the demon plane and the Tehrex Realm. Dark Warriors alone stand between humans and the evil that seeks to destroy them. Zander Tarakesh, the sexy as sin vampire king, leads the battle. Zander is battle-hardened and accustomed to command, yet wrestles to regain control when his Fated Mate is propelled into his world, bombarding him with unfamiliar emotions. His life depends on him uniting with Elsie, the slip of a mortal, who unknowingly protects a vital piece of his soul. Eradicating the demons will be an easier task than combating her sense of guilt and betrayal to gain her acceptance, loyalty, and ultimately her love. And, he must do this before she plunges a stake in his heart. One thing is certain; the flames of passion ignite a fire in their shared souls…
Elsie Hayes’ life is shattered after the vicious murder of her husband. Intent on revenge, she spends her evenings killing creatures others only see in nightmares. A supernatural event teleports Elsie into a world filled with violence, magic and unexpected lust and love when she is thrust from widow to Fated Mate of the enigmatic vampire king. Can she lower the protective shield around her heart, giving herself to a vampire whose power is the very reason her life was changed forever?
