It's not always a good idea to jump to the 3rd book in a series, but it worked this time. I had no trouble understanding what was happening and really enjoyed the story. The world is intriguing and quite imaginative, dark and yet full of hope.
And I love a sexy, emotionally scarred hero that is not a jerk. And a tough, sassy heroine that doesn't feel the need to stupidly affirm her "independence" by ignoring good advice and going strait into danger. Mack actually listens to her vampire when they

These books just keep taking me to new worlds, new feelings, storylines and plots I've never read before and Kyran and Mackendra's is no different . As twisted and sexyally perverse as Kyran is when he must save Mackenda and himself after the Goddess decides they need a "time out" on the hostile dragon planet, with the only way to survive is by depending on each other . Mackendra is having none of that !! She kills " blood suckers " for a living and as far as she's concerned the only good vamp ...more

Loved this story. It is very different from the other books in the series so far because Kyran and Mackendra slip through a portal and end up in another realm with no way to get back. It gets even stranger when Kyran has to explain that he is a vampire to a woman who considers herself a vampire hunter (I am not going to tell you what she does to him when she finds out!). Then, to make matters worse,they discover they are mates. As they try to figure out who they can trust, and fight off Fae ...more

Fantastical series that hooked me good!

I'm not always a fan of fantasy, but when I find a good series of book I need to give it it's props!

I really am enjoying the Dark warriors alliance, and this book in particular was worth a special shout out...

I love this series because you have all these super natural or immortals living in a realm here on earth...interacting with us humans and yet having their own code of ethics and even a's very cool, vampires, shifters, and witches on my!

Dark Warrior's Rule !!!!!

I love to read books that are well written and these are ! I like a little mystery even though I know it will have a happy ending ! Myrna story is not for the faint of heart ! The cause of his deviance is due to his mother's tragic death and loss of most of his family . His need for sexual dominance over women is over rules by his new mate Mack. She is also a dominant personality that won't put up with his usual behavior and finally brings him love and peace ! Start with

I couldn’t wait to read Kyran’s book and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Mackendra & Kyran are stuck together when Kyran saves Mack and then they go thru a portal. With danger around every corner, they must stick together and it isn’t long before Kyran learns that Mackendra is his fated mate. The bickering I absolutely loved. I loved that Mack held her own and doesn’t hold anything back. Mack & Kyran are perfect fit for each other and I really enjoyed reading there story. Can’t wait to ...more

An amazing book and series. I have read some of them out of order and stilled loves every second. But reading them in order is way better if you can. These are the perfect paranormal adventure romances. I mean you have a lily bit of everything. Lots of magic, demons, evil fae and some seriously hot dragon shifters and vampires. This one follows one tough as hell human female and the vampire that can’t stay away from her. It definitely starts out as a hate relationship for her and it definitely ...more

If you had following this series you would know th
at Kyran, Vampire Prince, disappeared after fleeing a burning house, belonging to the vampire slayer, Mackendra, slung over his shoulder. A portal seemed to open and close around them.
This story progresses from then, telling us what happened to these two aggressive warriors, and what realm they landed in and what they need to do to survive.
This is again, a dramatic and lust fueled episode. Interesting to say the least.

I have been provided with a copy of Deviant Warrior by the author for an impartial review. This is the fifth book in the Dark Warrior Alliance series and let me just say wow. This book picks up where the events of Mystik Warrior left off. This book was just awesome and it totally had me transfixed I was able to get through it so quickly. I just couldn’t put it down. I loved getting to see Kyran Tarakesh and Mackendra Callaghan find their way. I can’t wait to read more in this series.

Kept me guessing until the end

Kryan, a vampire and second in line for the throne, has to face his inner demons while tryimg to woo his very reluctant mate, Mack. She is more concerned about getting rid of skirm- a new and unique paranormal being- than mating with him. Falling through a portal doesn't help matters. Now they must travel through an unknown realm to find their way back home. A very fascinating and enthralling read.

Deviant Warrior is the third book in the Dark Warrior Alliance series. It can be read as a standalone, but the story and characters make more sense if you have read the previous books. There is a lot of violence and the sex is hot and steamy so 18+. The storyline is average but I am enjoying the characters interactions and development.

Kyran and Mack are both badass characters.
It's amazing to see how they tackle each problem and how they keep each other strong and positive.
Them being as possessive as they are, is really funny at some occasions.
There are no slow scenes here, it's full of action, one way or another.

I received a free copy and this is my honest review.

Action, action, action

These two authors really went all out when writing this story. The story contains lots of action, but also quite a bit of heated pages making this book an awesome read.

I enjoyed reading as Mack taught Kyran to get in touch with his romantic side and learn to deal with the issues in past. Kyran taught Mack how to overcome her negative feeling about vampires and to love one.

I’m really enjoying this series and Deviant Warrior is a fine example of what makes this it so great. Wonderful characters (the main couple here are Mackendra and Kyran), great world, lots of humor, action and passion. The authors make a great writing team; the book is well-written and rich in details. It really has all the elements of a great PNR, and I highly recommend it.

Awesome book

This one so far is my favorite. I absolutely loved these two characters and look forward to see where these two go from here. On to the next book!

Kyran may be a Dark Warrior, he may fight demons and skrim on a daily basis, but he has his own personal demons that he has yet to deal with, instead of pushing them under the surface all the time and numbing the pain with alcohol and deviant sex.

Mackendra may hide the scars on the outside with tattoos, but the scars on the inside run just as deep if not deeper, and she is pretty stubborn once she gets an idea in her head. She's been told twice now that the villains she's been fighting aren't

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Of all the Dark Warriors, Kyran is the most aberrant. He may be the most damaged as well after witnessing the brutalization and murder of his mother when he was young. His family was all murdered except for his younger siblings and the night has haunted him ever since. Kyran seems to just walk the edge of self control which is not good for the next in line to the Vampire Throne. After meeting Mackendra, what little control he appears to

I give this book 4 hearts

This is the third book in the dark warrior alliance series and just like the previous 2 follows right where the last one ended so should really be read in order as well as that the character and world building can be better appreciated.
I really enjoyed this story although it does deal with some serious and dark issues such as the rape and murder of his mother that Kyran witnessed as a child. It is because of these events that he now has a very dark and perverse sexual

It's official, I'm addicted !

I swear with every book in this series I read , I can't figure out how I survived without knowing they existed before! I'm so addicted to these books! It's every paranormal romance readers wet dream! These authors are definitely the new Sherrilyn Kenyon, JR Ward, Lara Adrian and Lora Leigh all rolled into one! And for any serious paranormal romance guru you know that's a powerful lure that cannot go unanswered! These ladies have cornered the market on what sets your

Just keeps getting better

I discovered book one via an email recommending books. I have been hooked on the series I loved how each book prepares you for the next and we see into more than just the main characters. Now specifically about Kyran and Mckendra's story. It was beautiful to see a story where despite the shortfalls of the main character he was able to be forgiven. I loved that Mckendra was a strong character from the beginning, even when faced with being mated she stayed true to herself.
