Review @DBReynoldsWrite @Bellebooks - Damian by D.B. Reynolds (Stone Warriors #1)

Stone Warriors #1
by D.B. Reynolds

Goodreads blurb:  It was a time when gods walked the earth, when armies fought not for bits of land, but for the very existence of humanity. On such a battlefield, five formidable warriors stood against an evil greater than any the earth had ever seen. But evil is not an honorable foe. Betrayed by someone they trusted, the warriors were cursed, one by one, tossed into the maelstrom of time, imprisoned in stone, their freedom resting on nearly impossible conditions. Until . . .

Damian Stephanos honed his skills in battles fought with magic as much as swords. Caught by a deadly spell that left him trapped for centuries in darkness and obscurity, he is finally freed, only to discover that his enemy still lives. Determined to find him—and to free his brothers in arms—he first must fulfill his blood debt to the woman who released him from his torment. Unfortunately, being so close to this enticing female is another type of torment altogether . . .

Cassandra “Casey” Lewis is a hunter. Possessing the rare ability to sense magic, she spends most of her time shadowing arcane collectors, and more often than not, stealing the dangerous artifacts she pursues. Her job is risky, especially when she’s stealing from one of the most powerful sorcerers alive. But having a gorgeous warrior by her side is a definite bonus. He’s great in a fight . . . and in other places, too.

Following a trail of dead bodies, the two of them must join forces to track down the sorcerer who cursed Damian, and who now plans to turn an ordinary magical device into a deadly weapon. Risking everything, including their hearts, they’re about to discover that trusting each other might be the hardest thing of all.  

About the Author:  D.B. Reynolds is the award-winning author of the popular Vampires in America series, as well as other paranormal fiction.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!

***Received ebook from Belle Books for an honest review

This is the first book in a spin-off from Vampires in America where we first met Nick (the sorcerer).  This is for adults only due to the steamy content.

D.B. Reynolds’ books are books that fully engage me in the story.  I love her writing style.  There is always plenty of action, drama, and sex appeal.  Her writing is always packed with details that make the stories come alive in your mind.  If you haven’t read any of her work, you need to try it.  Start with one of the book 1’s though because you will definitely get hooked, and you don’t want to miss the layers of character backgrounds, relationships, and chemistry.  If you jump around, you are only shorting yourself.

Damian and Casey’s story is beautiful and amazing journey, full of adventure!  I started off thinking Damian was a caveman with his ‘woman’ references, but he changed my mind.  Casey has insecurities I think we all have, and she was easy to relate to though she has warrior skills that will amaze you.  Damian does too :) I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!  Ok, really I can’t wait until any book of D.B.’s is released.

I highly recommend this book as well as any of the books written by this author!  I do not say this about too many authors!  If you love PNRs, you have got to read this!  I hope there is something new soon because I can’t wait!
