War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.
Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll.
Dante is built for battle, but even he can’t handle the nightmares where spiders crawl from Aspen’s eyes, or the look on Charlie’s face that foretells of devastation. To make matters worse, the enemy seizes every opportunity to break inside the Hive and cripple the liberators. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching, and to stand victorious, Dante will have to embrace something inside himself he never has before—faith.

One Line: A strong ending to a very entertaining series. I’m sad to see Dante go!
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
The Warrior was an overall strong ending to a fun and entertaining series. While I’ll admit things started off rather slow in the beginning, I think it’s just in the nature of these “conclusion books” and it did set up for the latter half nicely. Dante was, by far, the strongest aspect and highlight of this book, of the series rather, and his personality overshadows the rest of story, but in a good way. You gotta love a confident guy with swagger! The inevitable battle at the end was pretty well played out and full of minor things I didn’t expect at all.
Like I said, Dante steals the show, as always, with this last installment. He’s still as cocky and playful as ever, but you also get to see a sweet and caring side of him. His love for Charlie is so sweet and genuine, I really ship them as a couple. While Charlie can be a bit aloof and weird at times, I really liked their scenes together. I have to say that I really liked Kraven and Annabelle’s story arc as well. I didn’t expect to and I really liked the direction that Scott went with them. Seeing it all play out was highly entertaining as well.
Scott also surprised me with a whopper of a twist, that even though it’s obvious to the story, I really didn’t see coming. And I really liked that about the story, as it’s hard to surprise me, really.
Honestly, I think this book, and this series, is worth a read for Dante alone. He’s such a genuinely entertaining character, it’s hard not to like him. It was a great ride and I’ll Dante, for sure!
