Rating: You Need/Gotta Read
Murder has brought Talon, Master of Guardians, as well as Zia, his witch and Master of Witches, to Chicago. The manner of death appears to be a suicide, but Talon is far from ready to close the case. To avenge the Guardian linked to his past, he agrees to take on the assignment, and find her killer.
As they dive deeper into the investigation, they find themselves entering a world where BDSM is the norm. A lifestyle that Zia is uncomfortable with and, rattled by this new development, she is more than ready to return to the Otherworld. But their investigation quickly takes an unexpected twist when they discover that they’re not only hunting a killer but also someone who is controlling supernaturals in Chicago.
Their mission not only brings danger, but also forces Talon to deal with decades old guilt that corrodes his soul. Every event that unfolds only deepens his fight and pushes him to face an ultimate choice—what is more important—his duty to the Otherworld or the witch he holds closest to his heart?
Talon and Zia are both Masters from Otherworld, and as such their priority will always be Otherworld and it’s protection. Coming to Earthworld to investigate the death of Whitlyn, a former Otherworld guardian and the mother of Talon’s son, Talon and Zia come face to face with death and must decide if their love is more important than their duty.
Let me just say that Stacey Kennedy has done it again. Outstanding and well done. I was so enthralled with this story from the first sentence, that I did not move until I had finished the entire book. I absolutely loved the fact that Talon and Zia had already been in a long term monogamous relationship for years, and the fact that they were both confident in the other’s love for each other. Wonderfully refreshing. There was none of the game playing, and horrific miscommunications so prevalent in a lot of romance novels. A Warrior’s Witch was a beautifully written and thoroughly entertaining, sensual rediscovery of what made Talon and Zia fall in love in the first place.
The sad and untimely death of Whitlyn forces Talon to examine the guilt his has held for years concerning his son, thus freeing him to recognize where his true priorities lie. As a warrior, he has been more than happy to let emotional matters take a back seat to more pressing security issues. As a gentle Spirit Witch, Zia hasn’t pressed for a bonding or for Talon to speak of emotional matters. Only through trying to solve the mystery of Whitlyn’s death are these issues brought to the surface.
There was a wonderful and varied group of secondary Otherworld and Earthworld characters. It was a story filled with vampires, werewolves, witches and warriors. There is a hysterical scene where Zia is introduced to the lifestyle at a BDSM club. Talon certainly benefited from that little adventure. There is nothing at all I would have changed about this book and it is a sparkling example of what a good paranormal romance should be.
