HE VOWED HE’D COME FOR HER . . .

Murdered before he could wed Regin the Radiant, warlord Aidan the Fierce seeks his beloved through eternity, reborn again and again into new identities, yet with no memory of his past lives.

SHE AWAITS HIS RETURN . . .

When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals—unaware that he belongs to their world.

TO SATE A DESIRE MORE POWERFUL THAN DEATH . . .

Yet every reincarnation comes with a price, for Aidan is doomed to die when he remembers his past. To save herself from Declan’s torments, will Regin rekindle memories of the passion they once shared—even if it means once again losing the only man she could ever love?

Literary's Views

In reading Dreams of a Dark Warrior by Kresley Cole I’ve learned a valuable lesson. That a reincarnated love can become an intense and somewhat dangerous situation. Like our protagonist Regin the Radiant found out when her lost love Aidan the Fierce came back as Declan Chase, a different kind of warrior with an occupation she least expects.

As usual with Ms. Cole leading ladies, Regin was a tough chick that didn’t take any bull from anyone but on the flipside was able to laugh, party, make jokes and snide remarks that had me laughing out loud. Declan was such an intense, tormented, haunted hero, if I could even call him that, character that I couldn’t help but be drawn to him as Regin was. These two dynamic characters set the stage for an intense ride that had me flipping the page to figure out if and how they could work things out.

The world building was as three dimensional as the characters and the action was as intense as the romance.  Expect as much fighting as kissing within Dreams of a Dark Warrior.  It was no holds barred which is my personal fav.

The underlying message in the story is a strong one.  How far would you go for love?  Ms. Cole did a great job of answering that question within the story with characters I won’t soon forget.  I’m really looking forward to the next installment.
