Review: Dreams of a Dark Warrior by Kresley Cole


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.


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.


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?

Ok, before I start ranting and raving about how much I loved this book, take a good long look at the cover.  It is simply gorgeous.  I am starting to get jealous of the photographers of these covers, what about the rest of you?

Alright, onto the wonderful world of Kresley Cole... I love this series and you should all know it by now.  I am seriously and deeply in love with this series.  DREAMS OF A DARK WARRIOR is the 10th book in the Immortals After Dark series.  To check out more about the series, go to Kresley's website here.

In the preface of the book alone I was tempted to cry.  And, for the first good portion of the book I wondered if there could be a happy ending for the doomed lovers.  But, (obviously as a romance book) the story turned around for the two and a happy ending was found.  Along the way there were twists and turns (all of them exciting and had me rushing through the pages to find out what would happen next).

To be a little blunt here, for me to start talking about how good the plot is, or how well developed the characters are would be unnecessary because (for those of you who have read Cole's other books) we all know the plot is amazing and the characters are even better than the plot itself.  If you have not read a Kresley Cole book before (is that even possible?!) then trust me when I say you will love her books if you love romance novels.  You will love her books if you like paranormal (she also writes historicals!).  You will just love her books.

To get a taste of DREAMS OF A DARK WARRIOR, you can read an excerpt on Cole's website here.
