Review: A WARRIOR'S WITCH by Stacey Kennedy
I really enjoyed A Warrior’s Witch. There was a little bit of suspense and mystery with very mild undertones of BDSM. Talon is the Master of the Guardians and Zia is the Master of the Witches. I liked the relationship between Talon and Zia. I was hoping that they could find some way to bond and find happiness.
Talon wanted to find out who killed his son’s mother, Whitlyn. Talon and Zia decide to work together to quickly find the killer so that Talon could tell his son Kyden who his mother’s killer was. I was a little confused as to why Talon didn’t seem to have any love connection to Whitlyn. It seems that the two of them had only come together to pro-create. Whitlyn wanted out of her role as a Guardian so she offered to produce a child in exchange for her freedom.
Through their investigations they discovered that Whitlyn and her boyfriend were part of the BDSM lifestyle. Going to Leather Dungeon Club ignited some dormant sexual needs in Zia that Talon had no problem bringing to the surface. Zia’s willingness to experiment seemed to add spice to their relationship. The sex scenes were hot and full of love and tenderness even though they were sometimes a little rough.
There are four Masters: Witch, Guardian, Vampire and Werewolf. I liked seeing all the supernatural characters working together. But I didn’t really understand the Otherworld at first. I think the Masters work together to keep humans safe from evil supernatural creatures. This is my first Stacey Kennedy novel, and I suspect that if I read her earlier books some of my questions would be answered.
Talon and Zia are Masters and although there is no written law that says they cannot fall in love and marry they both feel that if they allow themselves emotional entanglements it would compromise their leadership of their people and the Otherworld. It was heartwarming to watch Talon realize how much he loved Zia and finally give in make their love official.
A Warrior’s Witch was a good paranormal romance read and I am looking forward to reading more of Stacey Kennedy’s work. This book gets 3.5 out of 5 stars.
