Review - The Cat Star Chronicles: Warrior

The Cat Star Chronicles: Warrior

When Tisana, a healer/witch, has a nearly dead feline slave dumped on her doorstep by her ex-lover, she isn't prepared for his exotic and erotic sensuality. But as she nurses him back, she wonders if he is The One. There is only one man in all the universe who can impregnate her to father her future daughter. The problem is, she doesn't know who he is.

It's a lonely life for a witch. One man to love but only briefly because whoever the man is, he will leave her. She knows that's the way of it, that's the way it's always been for all the generations of women in her family. And they only have one child, a daughter, to carry on the talent for their family.

But this new man, Leo, surprises her with his willingness to stay. And more, she's surprised when he offers to help find Rafe's kidnapped sons when he could be escaping his slavery. Maybe he really is The One for Tisana.

A while back I had the opportunity to read the first book in this series and thought, hey, this is pretty darn good. Well, let me tell you, the second book, WARRIOR, is even better. Ms. Brooks has created a fabulous world of diverse and interesting customs -- truly, even if the romance aspect wasn't so good, this would be a great read just to see the way she's developed this world. And the plot has some interesting twists as Rafe, the ex-lover, Tisana and Leo track down the missing boys.

Now...I've got some great news for those of you who love good science fiction romance. Sourcebooks has offered a free copy of Warrior to two lucky readers of this blog. All you have to do is email me at LyndaK.Scott @ (no spaces but there is a period after the k in my name). Please put Warrior in the subject line and your snail mail addy in the body of the email.

On Saturday, I'll put the names of everyone who has emailed me into a box and let my fluffy buddy, Wookie, select the winner (she loves to grab the pieces of paper I use). Oh, and make sure you read Cheryl's blog with us tomorrow. It's very interesting!
