I did not read “The Accidental Guardian” which was book one in this series, but I could see from reading “The Reluctant Warrior” that it must have set the stage for this book two.
And even though I did not read book one, I still enjoyed book two immensely and did not have any problem making sense of the story.
The “Reluctant Warrior” was a title that peaked my curiosity.
Who was this “Reluctant Warrior” and why would a warrior be reluctant I wondered.
The storyline was not obvious. It took me until the books final pages to find out, which is good writing that keeps one glued to the story to the end.
The story is set in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in April 1868. Even though the calendar may say Spring, in the mountains it was still bitterly winter and the characters had to not only fight to survive the natural elements, they also had to fight to survive a human enemy who was a cold-blooded killer.
If you like reading historical romance set in the West with adventure and drama included, then you will most surely enjoy reading this book.
I know I did, and I look forward to reading the next book in this series as I am expecting from the way it ended that there will be a book three.
I received this book free as I was chosen a winner in an online book giveaway presented by Mary Connealy and Bethany House Publishers.
I was not required to give a favorable review, but chose to do so, and all comments are my own.
