Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all!!
I don't know if you celebrate it or simply enjoy it but in my case i love this event. It's not a big celebration in my country ( though there are some event) so i only wear something green and try to read book related to Irish or Faes however this time i've started reading about celtic more than a week before..still i wanted to review one that fitted the event today.
I choose "Storm Warrior" by Dani Harper because 1° it's about Celtic warrior and fae, 2° it was in my TBR for way too long and....3° book 2 release tomorrow and i want it now.
In fact i first won the audiobook of Storm Warrior and honestly i haven't tried it yet.... i'm afraid my listening comprehension isn't good enough and the Irish words make sme even more afarid so i wanted the print book aside so i could check, compare etc^^ at the end i've read the book first but it just made me more curious about the audiobook ( and thus motivate me even more)
If you want to read a book specially for today, this oen is an excellent choice but let me explain why in my review.
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Genre: paranormal romance
Love it!! I has all I adore Celtic legends, super sexy AND deeply loyal warrior, sweet ( and steamy) romance, dogs and horses, faes both the bad side and the good ones….reading it for my birthday was a gift in itself. I was delighted
Now it’s true that while I enjoyed it fully, was swept by the action in this page turner book I also got frustrated more than once by Morgan…she was so king but close minded… I wanted to slap her to make her listen to herself. Little she listened and believed in her grandmother then it faded but how can she says she believes , trust her grandmother and at the same time not believe even for one second in faeries… it’s so contradictory. She has magic right under her eyes but she is afraid to believe I don’t know if it made me angrier or sadder… but I wanted her to open her yes.
Rhys suffered so much, it was really interesting to see his past, even shortly, then to see him in modern time because it helped me to see deeper in his personalities…and how apt and tender he is with animal had me won over completely. I would have loved to have him as a companion. Morgan frustrated me yes but deep inside I envied her too… how a good vet she is strong and determined to fight for the life in her hands… I don’t have that strength …she is also really kind (though obtuse at time^^). She is perfect for Rhys as she showed him indirectly that life wasn’t only battle… I loved to see him tend the farm…it was normal their romance would be slow built because he is respectful but the dreams did start being steamy right at the beginning ^^;; not a spark between them, an inferno
I also loved the secondary characters, Jay and his wife are so cute and special, Leo so kind and funny and Ranyon who is one of the good fae with his charm for anything^^. Gwen was also funny but i guessed her identity a little too easily though It didn’t impede my pleasure reading
If you want some story mixing paranormal romance, Celtic legends, with lovely and funny animals ( yes even spike^^), fae and gorgeous warrior… Try this one you will feel at paradise.
