Review: Possessed by a Dark Warrior (Eternal Mates #9) by Felicity Heaton

A powerful warrior and commander of the dark elf legions, Bleu is a loyal and devoted male, and one who has never failed in anything—except one thing. Love. When an elusive female dragon shifter surfaces in Hell again, giving him a mission to hurl himself into, he gladly returns to his hunt for her and the deadly blade she stole from his prince seven centuries ago, but as he closes in on his prey, fate reveals she is far more than his enemy.

Having escaped from the black market arena and her life as a slave, Taryn sets her sights back on the task she began seven hundred years ago when her brother stole a precious sword, but in the three centuries she’s been a captive, everything has changed. Corrupted by a craving for power, her brother has become dangerously obsessed with finding the blade and using it to claim the ultimate treasure—the position of King of Hell.

Faced with having to end her beloved twin brother to stop him from bringing all of Hell to its knees before him, will Taryn be strong enough to use the very blade he seeks against him? And when Bleu finally catches his elusive prey, will he listen to his head as it demands he complete his mission or his heart as it demands he claim his eternal mate?

Knowing that Bleu gets his own book, I could not wait to get my hands on Possessed by a Dark Warrior. I’m sure there quite a few fans of author Felicity Heaton who were chomping at the bit for Bleu’s story. And just in case you’re wondering if I was disappointed? Oh heck no! Bleu’s HEA was everything I could hope for. Come on folks, he ends up with a DRAGON! How cool is that!

 

Watching him get more and more sullen as everyone around him finds their life mates, even Vail, yeah things just didn’t seem very fair to Bleu in the romance department. A few of those he thought were the one mating off to other he knows does not make Bleu a happy camper… I mean, elf. Nevertheless, being a warrior first, when a dragon shifter resurfaces in Hell, Bleu throws himself into the mission to hunt her down. Three centuries Taryn was a slave black market arena before finally she escapes. Now her only goal is to finish what she started seven hundred years ago – retrieve the sword her brother stole and stop him from taking over as King of Hell. Boy, are these two in for a big surprise.

 

Woof this was one loaded book. Let’s start with Taryn. I really liked her despite not quite knowing is she was all together there in the head. Quite the nasty job she has set for herself trying to kill off her brother especially after not seeing him in forever. As for Bleu, what can I say? He’s Bleu! Sexy beast and sometimes so stubbornly thick in the head. Hello, there’s a reason you feel an attraction to her. Anyhow, things are anything but boring when these two kids are around. From Bleu’s search for her to Taryn’s interactions with her brother expect a lot of excitement and things to move very fast. And heat…yeah there is pretty nice heat between Bleu and Taryn. Yum!

 

Pros to the story include the past characters making a comeback. Best way to make me happy is to bring back previous characters in a series if nothing else but to know how things are going for them. Thorne, Vail, Loren, et al. all make a nice showing here. Some are just players others are given a nice little continuation to their stories. I like that we are given a bit more of a glimpse into Vail although I’m guessing it may be because of Taryn’s (not altogether there) state of mind. Now for a con which is just a personal thing. Taryn’s a virgin. What the…?!?! How is that even possible after being alive so many centuries? Yes okay, she was defending herself when she was a slave but to be a virgin after soooo long…sorry that just seemed quite a stretch. However, that is just my personal opinion and is no way a reflection of the story. That’s just me thinking ‘Oh come on!’

 

I’ve been following the Eternal Mates series from the very beginning and book has been such a rush to read. Anytime anybody asked if I have been enjoying myself and if it’s worth the read I always say yes. I kept hoping that Bleu would get his own HEA before the series ended. Now that it has, I almost feel the series could end. Almost, that is until I peek and see there’s a few more book left. *Groans* What a sec…Fifth Commander of the Echelon. Hmmm,oh yeah. I sense a good story in the making here. I’m ready when you are Ms. Heaton!
