Review by: Skaistė on April 17, 2013 :
I was eager to read what happens next to the characters afer the first book. I have wondered about whom story will tell this time. I had few guesses but I hadn't guess it right. I was pleasantly surprised about it. Now I wonder why I haven't thought about this one character.

This book was different than the first one. At first it was more like a romantic story but it got more and more intense with each chapter and eventually I was sitting on the edge of my seat. It was a wonderful sequel for a wonderful first book. It was different, had it's own taste and I liked it a lot. There were new secrets coming out and new dangers to be defeated. But at the same time there were relationships forming and feelings evolving. And all of this was nicely put together creating interesting and involving story.

I loved reading this book and meeting all these characters I have grown fond of again. And I want to read more of it. Now I'm guessing what will happen next in the story.

Warrior Reborn
The Guardians of Eden #2

After reading book one of the series, I couldn’t wait to start reading this book and I was far from disappointed, if anything I fell in love with the series more. Incredibly well written, the reader is allowed to get to know the characters, and see how the relationship develops rather than jump straight into love at first sight. Both Briet and Jason are strong characters, used to being independent but soon learn working together gets better results. When Briet is poisoned the depth of Jason’s feelings shine through, leaving the reader breathless. All of the Guardians are special in their own way, and I would happily read each of their stories separately.

I received an e-copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Warrior Reborn is the second book in The Guardians of Eden series. This story centers on Briet, a healer among her people known as the Guardians. The Guardians are a race of beings created to safeguard mankind and they live in a Sanctum in a place called Eden. Each Guardian has one mate that they hope to find within their very long, almost immortal lifetime. After one hundred and fifty years, Briet finds her’s in the form of Jason Ballard, a man who watches over the cancer treatments and protocols for Briet’s young patients.

I think the author grew in her writing abilities when she created the MCs for this story. I enjoyed them much more than I did Turen and Mia in the first book. One of the reasons is because Briet remained strong-willed and independent throughout the story even though she fell in love with Jason. In the first story Betrayal’s Shadow, as soon as Mia fell in love and became pregnant, she turned into a damsel in distress and that ruined a lot of the first book for me. Here, the author did much better in keeping the lively spirit of Briet intact. I liked how the author created Briet to be a loving, caring person yet giving Jason space to face his past demons but also helping him to face them. The author walked a fine line in creating a personality in Briet that was an ideal female that molded to a male’s personality, but also retained her own independence and spirit. The author did much better with Briet than she did with Mia.

At first I didn’t care for Jason at all and agreed with Briet’s older brother, Angsgar, when he said this:

”Because you look like some playboy wannabe with a fast car, a hot job, and girls to spare.” Angsgar glared at Jason, his fisted hands at his side ready to draw a punch.

I found Jason to be an unlikeable character for almost half the book, but the author did a good job of showing that underneath Jason’s cool, playboy exterior there were glimpses of compassion he wouldn’t show anyone, but Briet broke through Jason’s walls. The breaking down of Jason’s walls took place at a believable pace. There would usually be an event that pushed Jason to take another step closer to Briet until he was ready to make a commitment.

The secondary characters were enjoyable and I hope that the author will write some stories about them in the future. I’d like to know if Grimm finds a mate, and it would be awesome if Jason’s brother Frank finds a mate among the Guardians. Frank seems like he would be a perfect fit to help the Guardians both within the Sanctum and out in the human world.

This brings me to the point of view changes. Warrior Reborn is told in third person mainly through the eyes of Briet and Jason. The author had two good ways of changing povs; one was with paragraph separators and the other through chapter changes. However, and this is a big however, for the first half of the book the author had another way of changing povs that I disliked immensely. There would be sudden pov changes between Briet and Jason within the middle of a conversation or scene. I felt as if I was getting whiplash. I’d be in one person’s mind and then swoosh, I’d suddenly find myself looking at the scene from the other character’s eyes. The pov changes left no mystery as to what the other characters were thinking or feeling. Everything was laid out or explained once we were in the other person’s head and the scene lost all suspense and became flat. I haven’t the foggiest idea why the author felt compelled to jump from head to head. The scenes would have easily worked by continuing in the original person’s viewpoint.

There are numerous grammatical errors such as missing words and transposed words.

The cancer treatments and Salvatore’s involvement with the research was a good mystery. It went over my head a bit but I consider that more me since I don’t really understand medical research. One interesting point was the development of Jason’s powers after he mated with Briet. The author went into nice detail with that. I also liked that the descriptions in the story were not overdone or flowery. There was just enough but not too much. The pace of the story was good and I don’t remember a point where it felt too slow.

The sex scenes between Jason and Briet were very good, much better than in the first book between Turen and Mia. In fact, I liked that in this story the sex was more shown through the male’s pov, whereas the first book was more through Mia’s. I normally read M/M and don’t find M/F sex all that interesting, there are only a couple authors that make it interesting enough for me to read but I was pleasantly surprised with the scenes in this book.

I give this story 4.0 stars. This is a good, unique series and I look forward to reading the books that follow.
