First an outcast, now a hero.

But her fight rages on.

Kira, the yellow-eyed demon slayer who fiercely protected her kingdom—and the crown prince—has been proclaimed the Dragon Musado of the prophecy. With the defeated the evil shaman.

But it wasn’t enough.

Hansong is in chaos. The Demon Lord’s minions have infiltrated the city, treason is brewing among the military ranks, and Kira is buried by the overwhelming loss of her parents. She’s also plagued by the annoying feelings that blossom whenever she’s around Jaewon. But she is determined that nothing will stop her from finding the second treasure needed to fulfill the Dragon King’s prophecy. Not even the army of half-breed demons hot on their trail. If only she could learn to trust others…

Her father always said one person can change the world. Will it be Kira?

Continuing from the first book, this book picks up right where the last one ends. It has so much action, I LOVE IT!

Plot: So this plot moves on with Kira leading the fight and moving on. Many trials come against Kira, leaving her to become even stronger. I really like how each chapter, the reader is able to know Kira more. She becomes just what the titles says, a warrior.

Love: Now this area is an area I wish would develop some more. There is a love interest but I feel like the reader just gets a taste of it. Little flirtation here and there and really, I yearn for this stuff. I wanted more to come along but something always happen leaving the love right where it is. Moving very slowly…

Ending: I do love however how well this book ended. It ended with enough drama and secrets to make me want the next book.  I look forward to reading how the series will conclude. The ending does pose some questions but I’m hoping that in the next book, this questions will be addressed.

If anything, I’m pumped and excited for the next book! I’m ready for that love interest to soar (pretty please)! Warrior is a strong sequel carrying the reader into admirable characters and action. A powerful story that captures fantasy well, Warrior is great.

I give it 4 BITES!


Happy Reading!


  1. There’s something about the covers for this series that didn’t really grab my attention. I’m glad to hear it’s a good series though! I’m like you and would want more of the romance shown. Snippets here and there are great but I want to see the development and how, amongst everything else that is going on, the two can stay together.

    I really liked Kira in the first book Savy, but I’m like you with the romance – I know I’ll want more from it. I was craving it in the first book and we never really go there, so the fact that we don’t really get there in this book either is a touch disappointing. I’m glad this sequel is so action packed though, that always makes for a quick read!

  3. Sounds fab and I’m so pushing that first book up my wishlist! I don’t mind romance light with all that action going on. Makes sense but so glad you enjoyed it so much!

    I haven’t read this series yet – fantasies are a hit or miss for me but it’s been getting really good reviews! Glad the sequel was good as well! 🙂

    I have the first book, but I haven’t read it yet. I have heard some mixed things, but I’m very curious. I’m okay with a slow moving romance as long as it’s at least hinted at.
