The tormented soul of a beast.
Created to be a mindless, bloodthirsty monster, Varnog chose to live an honorable life instead. From the day he joined the Vanguard, he’s only had eyes for one female. Petite and delicate in appearance, she awakens his protective instincts and a deep longing for something he can never have. However, his Linette has no need for protection. The elite pilot and Senior Officer of the Vanguard kicks ass and takes names with the best of them. With the final war against the Kryptid General looming on the horizon, he and Linette are called upon to help prepare the Vanguard and their allies for that ultimate confrontation.
But how can he when his every instinct demands he slaughters those he has pledged loyalty to? How can he persevere when many among the Coalition perceive him and his brothers as no more than the parasites they were born to be? What hope is there when claiming the one female to have ever touched his heart could turn her into an even greater abomination than he believes himself to be?
Review by Nancy
This addition to the Xian Warriors series is nothing short of EPIC! Varnog was a strange creature. Crafted by the Kryptids to destroy their enemies, the Scelks become a very valuable ally to the Vanguard. Varnog is completely taken with the petite pilot, Linette. But how could she ever love a creature such as he? During a huge mission to defeat General Khutu the pair becomes acquainted and more. This story was AMAZING! Something happens when Varnog and Linette complete their mating and it was one of the coolest scenarios I’ve read in recent history. I love this series and this book brings all 5 prior stories to their culmination. Loved Varnog! Do not miss this story! 5 stars
