    The vampire was built for sin, every inch of him tight and bulky with corded muscle. A killer, that much was apparent, and she couldn’t help but wonder if his appetite for violence would rival his appetites for other…things.
    Naya Morales is no ordinary mortal. Born with a shaman’s power, she has devoted her life to tracking down stolen magic—and punishing those who take it. But one fateful night, she follows the alluring call of a sensual magic that is too glorious to be true—and finds herself face to face with a stunningly handsome thief who is too magnificent to resist…
    From the moment he sees her, Ronan knows Naya is his mate. Driven by a deep, almost mystical connection, he aches for her body, hungers for her blood, and swears their souls are anchored together. Naya refuses to believe the words of a vampire—or risk the wrath of her tribe. But when she tries to make Ronan her prisoner, neither chains of silver nor fires of hell can help her escape the truth: she is the one who’s been captured…

    Fluttering Thoughts:

    Worldbuilding: If in the first novel of the series, Last True Vampire, I thought the world was rich, in The Warrior Vampire things got even more yummy. The Bororo tribe with all their unique features were kickass! Plus ofc all the world elements from the first novel = paranormal galore!
    Characters: Naya was a really fun female lead, because she was independent yet allowed traditions to rule her where she shouldn’t have (imo), and following her eye-opening process was super fun. She was kickass, funny, passionate – what’s not to love?
    Ronan was as delicious as you’d expect him, all smexy and determined and loyal to his mate *love-struck*
    Their couple was charming and charismatic, and their one on one moments were uber-hot xD
    Plot: The romance arc was really fun, the odds-against-the-couple thing came with awesome tension and the action outside the romance was interesting too, with Chelle and the artifact and…lots of fun, in short.
    Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, his/her POV (with minor inserts from another character’s POV). I liked the style, the snarky tone of Naya and the way her voice came through.
    Curb Appeal: Cool cover, hooking blurb, cool series – impulsive buy material for sure for my PNR moods!

    All in all, I recommend The Warrior Vampire to lovers od vampire romance, mates-trope fans, and also to fans of diverse worldbuilding. The Last True Vampire is a series that promises a lot, I’ll for sure keep an eye on it!
