I hope you guys enjoy this final installment in the Dante Walker trilogy. I already miss Dante's bad attitude and inappropriate humor. I can't promise safety for your beloved characters, but I can promise kissing.

And bloodshed.

I was different then. Dare I say I was a douchebag?
I dare not.
I've always been awesome.
Even if I was a self-centered dick, I was an awesome self-centered dick.

The handful of friends I had when I read The Collector can attest to my Dante Walker fangirl status. I think I may have inadvertently shoved that one down a couple of throats here on GR none too gently. I'm still not sorry, by the way. He's easily one of the most entertaining heroes out there.

The Warrior is the third and final book in the Dante Walker trilogy by Victoria Scott. I could spend this entire review singing praises to Victoria Scott who I believe that anything she write is just magic. Or I could fill the entire review with quotes. I was highlighting before I even hit chapter one. The words are all so beautiful I just couldn’t stop myself. But instead, I will try my best to convince you how fantastic this book was, that the whole series was. And hope that I will convinc

Dear Dante,

Yes, I’m doing it through a Dear John letter. Despite the fact you apparently have swag.

You don’t though.

Your so called charm is annoying and shows a lack in character development.

I could maybe understand it for the first book and a half, but grow up dude.

There’s a reason why you are and always will be a screw up. Well, maybe you’ll grow up in the last forty-nine percent of the last installment in your series. But

No doubt the very reason I looked forward to this series so much was because of Dante Walker. He's a very interesting person, someone I'd love to read in a book, but would love to hate in real life because he reeks of swag (oh, how I hate the word), tactlessness, and arrogance. I say that, but I truly love him, especially since he's written convincingly well. There are heroes who are written to be like this, but they don't really show it. And there are heroes written like Dante who talks the tal ...more

There are no words to explain just how excited I was to get my hands on this book. I fell in love with the amazing Dante Walker series when I devoured the first installment in the series, The Collector. Since then I have been dying to see how the series would end... and let me tell you it is not a disappointment.

Dante Walker has been through hell. He has gone from A Collector, someone working for hte devil, to A Liberator, someone working for God. Now he has a huge c

First Impressions...

I have loved this series from the start. Every book has been 5 stars. Dante is fun, powerful and insightful. I was totally excited for the end.

The Characters...

Not sure if anyone would be surprised by this but Dante is my favorite in this book and this series. His strength and self-importance is endearing and so funny but what really draws me to him is his doubt. His love for Charlie brings him from a collector to a lib

It didn't take long for this series to become high on my priority list nor for it to become high on my top list of favs so it was no wonder that I opened this one with a whole lot of eagerness, excitement and a little bit of nervousness.

So much happened in the last book and so much was still left undone and like all last books, we always hope for the best.

Victoria Scott, you never let me down.

As with Fire & Flood, a lot of reviews warned me that this book wasn't up to par and to put my disappointment glasses on. So I avoided it a good while as to not sully my obsession adoration of Dante Walker and when I finally put on my big-girl panties, I went in with a certain amount of trepidation and was... pleasantly surprised. The Warrior isn't perfect by any means, but some of the things that bothered others didn't bug me at all. Dante Walker It showed

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Without a doubt, the strength (or weakness, depending on your viewpoint) of Victoria Scott’s Dante Walker trilogy lies with the title character. Whether you like this book or not will depend on how you feel about Dante. I, for one, can’t get enough of him. He’s cocky, sarcastic, blunt, and sometimes insensitive, yet so hilarious and entertaining. He says things like, “Pow!” and “I’ve got swag for days”

So we've come to the end. I've had to say good-bye to Dante. I'm going to miss his inappropriate comments and swag. But alas, I know that it won't be the end. I will re-visit this series again and again down the road. At least to go back to my favourite one liners. Dante never failed to make to me laugh with such classic lines as;

"Back the hell up, Kraven," I say. "Take you hand off her. I get that your trouser snake is angsty, but keep your temper in check."

After reading: I can't believe the series is over. Dante Walker is one of the most hilarious and funny characters I've ever read about. And thinking there won't be any other story about him makes me feel :(
I loved everything but one thing *SPOILER*

War between heaven and hell is finally coming and Dante feels desperate. He’s still upset about what happened in hell and he doesn’t believe he deserves to shake his guilt away. When enemies start showing up at places that are supposed to be safe and secure, Dante begins to wonder if someone has switched to the bad side. Can he find and kill the traitor before all hell breaks loose?

Even though Dante’s emotions are at war, he is still haughty, funny and at times, downright hilarious when he’s amo

If you have NOT read The Collector & The Liberator, please read with caution. There are some spoilers that were unavoidable. Proceed with caution . . .

This book is, in my opinion, the strongest of the three. It had the humor I've grown to love from Dante (his voice is just so different from anything I typically read), it had the tears, it had the heartbreak and the loss but it also had an ending that you could smile, even afte

I don’t want to go on too long because I feel like this person already did a fine job at describing the minute details of where it went wrong and where it went right. I just want to summarize my experience for those who want the cliff notes:

All three books are from a guy’s perspective, which also happens to be the demon’s perspective, which is what makes it refreshing. What makes this series though, is Dante’s particular swag. I laughed out loud practically any time he was talking. The

The Warrior is a thrilling, suspenseful, action packed end to the Dante Walker series. Brimming with plenty of Dante Walker mouthiness, swoon worthy scenes, and an epic battle, this is a series ender that rocked. Victoria Scott pulled out all the stops in this book. With shocking secrets, betrayals, character deaths, and plenty of surprises, The Warrior wraps up Dante's story perfectly, and in the most fitting way possible.

And...goodness, I have so many feelings right now. I love this book, y'all. LOVE. A phenomenal ending to the Dante Walker trilogy.

And it is kickass.

I think I'll leave it at that for now. I have SO MUCH more to say, because this book is freaking great, but I'm going to give myself time to make it coherent. I'll have a full review up closer to the release date. *flails*

My Thoughts:

The Dante Walker Series has taken me on one very wild, exciting, and adventurous journey! It is one of my favorite YA paranormal favorites, and I highly recommend it for males and females alike! Tis series has had everything that makes a great series! We've been given unforgettable and unique characters, a plot that completely hooks you, and keeps your interest, with a variety of surprises, humor, romance, friendship, and fantasy!

The Dante Walker books by Victoria Scott have been one of my favorite books to read. And trust me when I say that Dante Walker is one bad boy that you will be falling head over heels in lust with.

I am pretty sad that The Warrior is the final book in this series. I, for one, am going to miss Dante’s cocky attitude, his conceited ways, and just everything that is Dante! He is a character that readers won’t forget, that’s for darn sure.

How to sum up the conclusion to a series with a lead male so memorable as Dante Walker? Thrilling, action-packed, emotional, sexy, and LOL funny, that’s how!! I was so looking forward to this read, because this series gave us the gift of a hero who wasn’t afraid to be cocky, naughty, and smoking hot, all the while keeping a sense of humor that makes you feel like old friends.

The Warrior by Victoria Scott was an exceptional end to a trilogy that introduced me to the one and only Dante Walker. In this epic finale, Scott doesn’t hesitate to raise the stakes in every level and form. Again, she entertained me, captivated me, and had me on the edge of my seat for the most part.

Like I said previously in my review for The Liberator, I appreciate Scott for keeping Dante true to his character. He really has come full circle, even more so in The Warrior. He was still self con

I can’t believe the time has come for this series to end! Reading The Warrior was a bittersweet experience. I found myself not only excited to see how the war between Heaven and Hell would play out and what would become of all our beloved characters, but also sad to know it would be the end of Dante Walker’s story.

I will keep this brief since it is a finale book but I think fans of the two previous books will be pleased overall. Like a lot of f

This is probably my favorite out of the whole series!

In this book, it's war. The war between heaven and hell is starting. Dante is on the side of heaven for a change and has to continue training. All the while, he keeps having dreams about Aspen, his friend that he left in hell and his girlfriend keeps distancing herself.

First all: I wasn't as much of a fangirl over this series. Really, a demon who falls for a girl isn't a

The Warrior was an overall strong ending to a fun and entertaining series. While I’ll admit things started off rather slow in the beginning, I think it’s just in the nature of these “conclusion books” and it did set up for the latter half nicely. Dante was, by far, the strongest aspect and highlight of this book, of the series rather, and his personality overshadows the rest of story, but in a good way. You gotta love a confident guy with swagger! The inevitable battle at the end was pretty well ...more

This series started off enjoyable, but I'm I the only one he thought Dante became like the weak-link in his own novel in the end?
