The writing and editing of the ARC version of the manuscript was clean, with no typos that I found. The world building was competent, with these alien species and cultures coming to vivid life and the Seelie prison dimension being vividly described. The characterization was good, with hero and heroine being complex individuals with strengths and weaknesses. The development of the romantic relationship was natural and organic, and these two characters spent a good portion of this novel in close p ...more

🕸️🕸️ONE INTRIGUING JOURNEY🕸️🕸️
Fantastic! Denna hits the ground running with this tough as nails 100% on point realism, delivering one action packed hard hitting, nailbiting, block busting bombshell, keeping you riveted on a razors edge and frozen to your seat, wrapping this baby up sleek shiny and tight. Observing the arduous struggles and thrilling triumphs, stumbling through the dramatic twists and intricate turns, testing our characters in ways they could have never envisioned. Traversing unc

I was initially drawn into the story but I kept getting kicked out by the almost whininess of Carla. Her drawn out resistance about wanting to really know what she was and the other things that go bump in the night got a bit wearing after a while. I think it was the not quiet snark that may have been the cause or her wishy-washy behavior or maybe a combo of both. Azrael while he meant well, seemed to want to keep Carla ignorant so he could control the narrative more.

I did like the mix of other

The story has plenty of drama, action, adventure, and danger in it. Cara has spent her entire live running from Hunters, aliens from another world. She is a half-breed vampire that's being hunted but also is plagued by nightmares of the same voice telling her to "take his hand." She finally meets the man behind the voice to discover Azrael, who is one of the Hunter aliens sent to retrieve her. But when they meet Azrael finds that she is his lifemate. There is more than vampire blood in Cara's ve ...more

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway!

I really enjoyed reading this one. I loved how relatable Carla was as a character though I am really curious as to what her real name is since she said Carla was what she went by now.

I noticed a couple typos and wrong names but not a ton. I loved the dynamic between Azrael and Carla and I really liked how Carla grew into her powers, though it did seem a little ambiguous at the end during those 4 days.

There were a few loose ends that could've been tied up

My thoughts on the female in the story aren’t positive. For 200yo she comes across as weak asks some ridiculous questions and as being a widow acts like a virgin. All the females in this series are the same IMO. They responded the same acted the same and asked basically the same questions with responses and act like clueless children. The writing itself and editing was good just not the female leads.

Rise of a Warrior by Denna Holm is a fantastic story to read. This is book number five in this fantastic series that I have enjoyed reading since the beginning. I can not wait to see what this author will write next. I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves reading about fantasy and paranormal romance.

This is the 5th book in the Immortal Warriors Series. This is Carla and Azrael's story.
Do you love paranormal, feisty women, alpha men? If so this is for you.
Be prepared to run the gauntlet of emotions because you will find:
Action, drams, suspense and perhaps a lifetime mate. (just saying)
The characters are excellent and the chemistry is also. Enjoy!

Interesting world containing vampires, fae, shifters and djinn. However, these creatures don't actually come from earth. This can be read without reading the rest of the series first.

Interesting read

I don’t like to give spoilers on the books that I read. I believe the blurb on the back is enough for you to decide if you will read the book or not. If you choose to read, enjoy!
