The Dragon has awakened, and he will claim his bride.
As the Vanguard’s top analyst, Tabitha discovers a secret message which could allow them to deal a severe blow to the Kryptids. The last thing she expects during that mission is to run into the ‘enemy’ who haunts her dreams. After getting her heart crushed years ago, Tabitha has sworn off genetically engineered warriors. Yet, she cannot resist her attraction to the dark and mysterious hybrid named Bane. As they prepare for a bloody war against the Kryptids, she realizes there can only be a future for them if she can bring Bane and his people to the Vanguard’s side.
His hearts have ached for Tabitha from the moment he set eyes on her. And yet, time after time, he has let his fierce and fearless Queen walk away. It had been both for her safety and out of duty to those under his protection. However, the tide has finally turned. He and his people may be the monstrous creations of the Kryptid General but, for the first time, freedom is within their grasp. Now that he has a chance at a future with his Queen, and at safety for his people, nothing and no one will stand in his way.
REVIEW BY NANCY
Let me regale you with the super-awesomeness that is BANE! Bane is a tool of the Kryptid General Khutu. He’s a hybrid born of a stolen Vanguard mother and Kryptid father. He and his brothers are the secret allies of the Xian Warriors. Tabitha is the queen who haunts Bane’s dreams. When Tabitha, an analyst and shell for the Vanguard, discovers a trail of breadcrumbs that could possibly give them an advantage in the war against Khutu, she embarks on a dangerous mission with a full complement of her sisters and Xian Warriors. Its a trap and the Hybrids join the forces the Xian Warriors to save the victims that Bane is protecting. Tabitha is drawn to Bane. But will she be able to keep him? Bane is the leader of his people. Tabitha would like nothing more than Bane joining her on Khepri. Much is at risk. Will the Xian race welcome Bane and the other Hybrids designed to be their enemies into their ranks permanently? Read and find out!
As you guessed I LOVED this book! Bane is one, hot warrior! (:::fans self:::) And I love all of the battle scenes and strategy that come to play in this story, as well as the steamy stuff. This book is not really a stand-alone. I recommend you read Legion and Raven first! 5 stars for this fantastic addition to the Xian Warriors series!
