First things first. I want to thank TT for recommending this series to me and warning me that it is very addictive. This book is awesome and addictive. The story is very cool, original and quick to read. I was through it within hours and I want to start the second book as soon as I finish this review. H.D. Gordon's writing is great. She had me hooked to her story from beginning to end. Blood Warrior was funny, romantic at times, exciting, full of angst and adventure and just awesome. The characters are also awesome. I loved every single one of them. Just because they are so easy to love and you get to know them very well. Better then in some other books I've read. Alexa is badass and really cool. I love her loving, protective, stubborn, ... character. I have to add that I think her name is kind of original as well. Never came across it in books before, so. Thumbs up H.D.! I love every name actually. Nelly is the name of my grandmother (R.I.P.) and you don't often see it in books, certainly not among the main characters. What else can I say? I can't say anything negative about it, I really don't.5 out of 5 stars! It deserves every single one of them!
