As chaos looms, a warrior queen is reborn. Bookish academic Diana Laughton has been having terrible dreams. Dreams of battle, dreams of blood… dreams so vivid she's living them day and night. When demons invade her quiet life, she wonders if she’s going mad. Or if perhaps she's remembering a past life she had no idea existed…

In the midst of betrayal, he must protect her. Mythean Guardian Cadan Trinovante loved and betrayed Britain's warrior queen Boudica two millennia ago. Now he’s tasked with protecting mortals whose lives affect the fate of humanity. His latest assignment is Boudica herself, reincarnated as a woman with no idea of her past or her fated future. Though in the irresistible form of Diana Laughton, it's possible Cadan has once again met his match… To succumb to seduction could prove fatal

Thrown together in a shadowy world that exists alongside our own, Diana and Cadan must fight not only the demonic forces that want Diana dead, but a past and a passion that have lasted centuries. Their desire could be deadly. But as evil from the underworld unites against them, their only hope could be each other.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.


I wanted more…

I enjoyed this book, but there were too many times I was distracted by the ticking of the clock or a car driving down the street. When I’m reading a good book, that does not happen.

It dragged at the beginning. I really didn’t get interested until she recovered her memory and that was past the halfway point. I just didn’t feel the connection between the main characters.

Before I read this book I had read some reviews and they talked about the hero being too possessive. Too possessive…is there such a thing? In this case, yes. Caden wasn’t possessive, he was a control freak. He took away most of her choices and decided what was best for her. That is not a desirable trait in a hero.

There were some hot and sexy scenes but Caden’s reasons for waiting seemed a little silly and selfish. No editing or grammar issues that I could see. This story had some original and interesting ideas. I liked Warren and Esha and I may go on in the series just to see if they get together.

Rating: 3.5 I Wanted More Stars
