Review: Immortal Warrior by Lisa Hendrix


DON'T FORGET TO VISIT NOVEMBER 11th WHEN
LISA HENDRIX WILL BE A GUEST BLOGGER!!


While living a solitary life in the shadows of the night Ivo de Vassy is summoned to Salisbury Castle by King William Rufus of England. Ivo was vital in a recent victory and the king wishes to reward him. Without fully thinking of the consequences Ivo asks for land as payment. What he receives is more than he bargains for.

Lady Alaida spends her days fending off suitors and watching over the lands of Alnwick that were seized when her grandfather was imprisoned. As she soon learns, the king has not only given rule of Alnwick to Ivo but he has also ordered them to marry in order to seal his hold on the lands. With beautiful looks and a sharp tongue Alaida quickly steals the heart of Ivo and after a quick wedding Ivo awakens in Alaida a passion she never knew existed.

But Ivo has a secret that no one but two of his trusted men share. Long ago Ivo was cursed with immortality that has him spending his days in the form of an eagle. Each morning before dawn Ivo leaves Alaida and increasingly she begs to know the truth behind his mysterious “hunting trips”. However within days a vision warns that a child born to the couple also has the shape-shifting curse and Ivo makes the decision to keep his distance from Alaida’s bed to spare her from the horror of this vision coming true.

Will this combination tear them apart or will their love set them free???

Immortal Warrior is a combination of a historical and a paranormal romance. I admit I was a bit hesitant when I noticed the historical aspects of the book but I was immediately pulled into the story. The writing is incredible and the all the characters jump to life within the pages. You get two great storylines in one awesome book: a great romance with steamy sex between Ivo and Alaida plus the background story for the Immortal Brotherhood series.

My rating scale only goes up to five but I'll give this one a five plus!! I can’t wait to read the next book series, Immortal Outlaw, and I recommend this book to all historical, paranormal and romantic suspense lovers.

I am always intrigued with historically based stories and then add the flavor of conspiracy--I'm hooked!! I want to read this book as I like what you said about the characters coming to life right away and the story taking off. I read all genre so this will fit in with my likes and also put some romance in my life. Ha Ha Great review Monie
