I'm a new follower of this author, but judging from what I've read this year, I don't see that changing anytime soon. Kate Baxter is one of those authors that has an innate skill for creating a variety of well developed supernatural creatures and world that they live in.

4.5 - "I'm not an all-you-can-drink dinner buffet. Got it?" Stars!

Kate Baxter continues on with the Last True Vampire series with absolutely stunning story-telling in The Warrior Vampire we met Ronan Daly in the previous book as Michael Aristov’s right hand man, a lot happened in that book and some of the changes directly involved Ronan, especially towards the end.

The Warrior Vampire is Ronan’s story, and boy was it a good one. I was pulled in from the beginning, and I liked that the author took

[2.5 stars]
I was left with an overwhelming sense of Meh when I finished this book. Nothing wrong with the characters, other than a lack of spark in the beginning and a dependency on the “tethering” to explain a connection, instead of really taking the time to build it on the page. There are only so many threats that can be dished out between the leads before you start to lose interest.

Mythology builds up a little but felt isolated from the main conflict of vampires and sortiari which is what I

***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review

The cover is definitely a work of steamy art :)

This is book 2 in the series and is for adults only due to the steamy scenes and violence. While it is not mandatory to read the series in order, I highly recommend it because you will know the histories and references made from book 1, and it just makes it so much more together!

In The Warrior Vampire  we have a stunning and vibrant romance that pulls me quickly into the story and I didn't want to let go. I will admit, I wasn't sure if I would be in the mood for this story, but honestly with Kate Baxter at the never need to be in the mood. You just know that you will enter her world of magic, of vampires, of danger and spirited heroes and heroines and become captivated and thus it was for myself while re

Naya is a witch in a tribe of shifters. In her Bororo tribe, the males are shifters but the females hear and control the magic. Like many ancient societies though, she is treated as second class despite her being the one to control the magic while the male elders and leader of the tribe dictate all her actions, including her impending arranged mating.

Along comes the mysterious Ronan, vampire, one of the few in this world. And shocking them both, Naya is the one to tether his vampire soul, meani
Bororo magic enforcer, Naya is on her way home from a hard night of retrieving stolen magic when her pod leader calls to try to line up potential mates for her. Naya's thinking, I'd rather die than have a mate when the purest magic she's ever heard sings to her. Geared up for the retrieval, Naya follows the trail to the magic and is literally bowled over by more than six feet of muscle vowing to protect her.

Naya was born from a long line of Shaman's, all the woman in her pod have the ability to hear magic that has been taken. And it is their jobs to get it back and take care of the person who stole it. The only other thing important is that the woman who are the only ones born with this gift find mates and make the next generation. Naya has been faithful to the cause but it has been getting hard and she has no desire to be mated and breed off. After a night of retrieval Naya hears power like none o ...more

Worldbuilding: If in the first novel of the series, Last True Vampire, I thought the world was rich, in The Warrior Vampire things got even more yummy. The Bororo tribe with all their unique features were kickass! Plus ofc all the world elements from the first novel = paranormal galore!
Characters: Naya was a really fun female lead, because she was independent yet allowed

This book is uniquely interesting and will cause the reader to not want to stop reading. It has well thought out descriptions, full of forward movement in the plot and incorporates a series of linked events that brings in the shifter and vampires stories.

Naya is my type of women; strong, fearless, faithful to her beliefs and a kickass fighter. The author does an astounding job of incorporating all these attributes while keeping her femininity in tact. There is a vulnerability in Naya that makes

For someone who is not yet a fully fledged and paid up member of the paranormal fan club, I sure am loving this series. "The Warrior Vampire" was a brilliant and addictive read. It was so fantastic that I could not turn the pages quick enough, desperate for more of Ronan and Naya's story. I was consumed by the exciting world of vampires, witches and magic. Not once was there a dull moment or a time where my mind wondered to some place else. The story was fast-paced, thrilling and contained the m ...more

I liked Ronan in the first book. He was so loyal to Mikhail, and even played on the fringes of the vampire life to get what he needed. After he made his bed with that blood vow, I thought we were screwed and were not going to get a story from him at all. This little tidbit stayed in the back of my head the whole book. I was wondering, even if Naya and Ronan were able to get together, how were they going to get past his little pact back home?

Absolutely Fang-tastic!

This is the second book in Ms Baxter's Last True Vampire series and it's the second time I've read it! It's that good.

I love it. Passionate, thrilling, emotional and kick-ass fight scenes.

Naya Morales is not a regular human she goes out every night and tracks down stolen magic-and punishing those who take it. On a night that should have been like every other night something crazy happens....she feels a surge of power...runs to investigate and sees a man consumed by power who says her name right before he crumbles at her feet.

What's a girl to do when a man who should know nothing about her knows her name but is unable to tell her how or why? Take him hostage of course!

Ronan caught my eye in the first book, The Last True Vampire. He was steadfastly loyal to Mikhail and went to great lengths to help his king be with his mate, Claire. I was excited to read Ronan's story and it certainly wasn't a let down!

I am really liking this paranormal world Kate Baxter has created. In this book we are introduced to Naya, who is tethered to Ronan, and also a powerful witch. She belongs to a "pod" where all the males are jaguar shifters and the females are few and far between.

I loved the start of this series in The Last True Vampire. The characters were so real that the story just sucked me in.
This book, not so much. I'm not a great one for reading witch/magic stories, and this was full of it. It's a great, involved story, where we follow Ronan, Michael's right hand man who we met in part one, as he meets Naya Morales, his true love.

THE WARRIOR VAMPIRE has all the elements of a good book--a seemingly insurmountable plot, mystery, and suspense. The characters are likable.

What put me off the book was an improbability in the beginning (view spoiler), and the cardboard villain.

However, don't let me dissuade you from reading the book if you're interested. These are only my personal pet peeves.

Book Review of “The Warrior Vampire” By Kate Baxter
Naya Morales is a very powerful witch, and she uses her powers to track down stolen magic and punish those who take it. Naya also realizes that her elders are all men and they do not understand Naya’s powers, nor do they believe that a women should be considered an elder.

One evening, while Naya is out trying to catch a mapinguari (a human who’s body is possessed by evil magic), she encounters a vampire who tackles her to the ground and ends up p

Not worth the price

This is the second book in this series so far. I didn’t really mind that the first one ended without being entirely resolved as I assumed the information would filter in through the other books. This wasn’t really the case. Although we get a tiny mention of Gregor and the Sortiarti, Mikhail and Claire are barely mentioned and their story remains cut off. The same abrupt ending is hurriedly written with these characters as well- even more so. There’s a lot left to be desired an

This second installment on the series,Last True Vampire,was every bit as enriching as the first one; though it did seem to have lost some of the initial impact the first book had. The main characters, Naya and Ronan, had a great chemistry and amusing banter now and again; but lacked any serious ties to the plot or each other. While the story did flow overall, I think there were many times, were you were left with too little information, or forced to jump from one point to the next. The conclusio ...more

This book took me off tangent a bit. Bought a witches group and panther shifters in to the story. Naya turned out to be Ronan's mate. Too much time was spent on dealing with that. Naya finds magic that has been stolen and it eventually corrupts the thief. She kills the thief and takes control of the corrupted magic. It was ok but in the end Ronan yet again takes control and uses a magic item that should be controlled by Mikail and gives it to Siobhan. It ends there. I was glad it was over and ho ...more
