Warrior of Darkness is one of the most convoluted, chaotic and confusing stories I have read in a long time. There are so many elements thrown in that it would have required a very deft handling to bring them successfully together, which unfortunately did not happen in this case. Too many things happen, but none of them have a satisfactory or even logical explanation or resolution. We have the heroine, who is suppose to be very smart and powerful but most of the time comes across as a nitwit
This is one of those books I read periodically and haven't bothered to write a review for previously.

Mandy Roth has created a whole new perspective on aztec type mythology, shapeshifters, vampires, fae and others as well as the whole gate to another world thing. This is one of those stories that certainly takes you away from the everyday.

Dr Deryn Murray, jack of all trades scientist, slayer, Avatarian, is decyphering an ancient temple on another world when she senses an invisible menacing presen
Head spinning

This book had so many twists and turns, connections, figure 8's, round and around. Frankly it was hard to grasp most of the time. The family connections for the characters got so deep and twisty that eventually I just gave up trying to figure it out. Spoiler * At the end, he finds she was just about to move on and with whom.....story abruptly switches gear, and they jump into a completely different discussion, and then just like that it's the end! I mean I was stunned. All that intr

I was given an ARC by the author for an honesr review.

This book is a 2 review and that is only cause i loved the characters.

I could try to write what the book is about but truthfully its so confusing that i won't even try.

The story is chaotic and a bunch of things happen that we do not know why and most of them simply happen cause no reason at.
The family connections between the characters are simply not worth the time following up cause in the end you'll only get more comfused and the story just

Deryn and Alejandro are working together in a realm that is close to Earth and they find themselves attracted to each other but fight that attraction due their own personal reasons. Fate has other plans for this couple and they must work together to save not only themselves, but their friends and family. These two mates are both strong and stubborn, but love those they consider family and will do what it takes to save them. There are a lot of secrets between them and also some that have been kep ...more
I will attempt not to post any spoilers but it may happen.

I have to say this is a super interesting and compelling story! Very strong plot, but at times very confusing as to who was who. Now it is packed full of entertaining tid bits and wraps around in a super weird but makes sense kind of way. As, the story unfolds you get twisted around a bit and turned around but in the end it does get explained but at times you are left scratching your head.

Now, I can this as a set for each of the males in
Another good one from Mandy Roth. Deryn is a slayer, feared by Vamps and shifters, although they only need to worry if they need policing. She is on assignment with Col. Alejandro Vargas and his team on another realm what he doesn't know she is here to protect him. He feels the same with her, unaware of her powers which she hides.

The story line is complex with a number of villains that are not easily spotted or dealt with. The emotions range from love, lust, loyalty, jealousy, friendship, fear,

The story had so much potential, but alas the chaotic way it was put just ruined it. Frankly the heroine was so erratic, that i could not imagine her being some great ancient descendant. The male is so contradictory at times too for me,going on like some dumb bloke that i wanted to smash him with something hard on the head. The relationship are so confused its not worth it to even try to figure them out.The story seems like jumping from time to time and continues missing vital parts for the read ...more
This is a 2, only because I loved Deryn and Alejandro...Once again for this author the premise was there for what could be a wonderful book, but it missed the mark. The story was disjointed and seemed to be missing valuable background, like what the hell is a kektau? what are tomb guards? who are the avatars and where did they come from? I'm sorry there were tidbits of info on all the subjects and nothing was every explained or gone into with enough depth to make it an enriching part of the stor ...more

Omg - Stargate with shifters!!!!!! As a self proclaimed sci-fi nut this book was right down my wormhole!!! Aztec/MesoAmerica type mythology, shapeshifters, vampires, fae all combine to make this a rip-roaring yarn.

Dr Deryn Murray, all-around geek, but beautiful with it, scientist by day and supernatural slayer by blood. She is hiding some major secrets on a dig in a parallel dimension, staffed almost exclusively by supers. Deciphering Avatarian in an ancient temple, she becomes aware of a malevo
'Warriors of the Darkness' is one of Mandy M. Roths' higher rated books around here with a premise that sounded quite intriguing. Anthropologist(?) Dr. Murray is dispatched to examine an ancient temple site on a different planet as part of a team of shapeshifting military men. The colonel leading said team is the same man whose death she dreamt about repeatedly and who she feels compelled to safeguard with her slayer powers and some magic she can do on the side. So far so good.

I got this in the Shifter Fated Mates box set. This was kind of a confusing story. It starts one way, things happen, nothing gets explained, then ends in a completely different way than what was expected. It was almost like the author yelled "Plot Twist!" then used an alternate ending. There is not even a mention on amazon if there is another book behind this one to explain the weird cliff hanger. This would have been a 2 star, but I just loved the little monkey "Che". (I love monkeys.)

Wow! If you enjoy action, adventure, suspense, fantasy, romance, shifters and a menagerie of paranormal beings, then you will absolutely love this book. This book is the total package! I loved it! I was totally captivated from beginning to end. Exciting! Action Packed! Well Written! Smart! Original! Thrilling! Romantic! Sensual! Sexy! It kept me on the edge of my seat! Great entertainment!
I enjoyed reading this book and hope there will be more to this series. I enjoyed the twist of the heroine being the one trying to protect her mate (without knowing he is her mate) and hiding her true identity from everyone until near the end of the story. The final outcome left me defiantly wanting more from this couple.
I generally cannot fanthom a decent storyline.

The book has no real lead, it twists itself into a little ball of knots. And i think it gets to the point where its a little boring. The plot isn't exactly ground breaking and different so I guess the author has tried to add some mystery, it just doesn't really work.

I have spent over a week or so to try and read this and i am now giving up. I dont even care about finding out if the heroine gets with the guy. That is the end goal i assume...

A good
Michele bookloverforever
very convoluted tale of destined soul mates. part military, part sci fi, part paranormal, filled with hidden secrets kept for decades and magically excised memories. lots of confusion, lots of sex, a touch of racial prejudice and insane jealousy. rollicking, funny, touching and unpredictable. lots of real characters and funny.
Denise Mcnamara
Wow. This is a deep , edge of the seat book. Mandy keeps you on the edge with this riviting story. Take a kick ass slayer and throw in some hot alpha shifters and this book sizzles. I hated for it to end and I'm ready to one click the next book in this series. A definite must read
great book

Avatars, vampires, shape shifters and a whole bunch of other creatures that I have never heard of. And a love story on top of it. Doesn't get any better. Great story and great characters.

Good read, kind of confusing to keep up with all that's going on but once you get the names and people straight its an easy follow. I'd love to hear what happens next and see what they all get into in future books.
This was a hard book to get through. It was difficult to follow and seemed to jump around. I couldn't wait for it to end and then when it does it leaves you hanging!
This book was not what I expected it was a really good read and it was great you should read it if u like sci-fi. you needs to try book to read........... loved
