Hell’s Warrior, Book 2 of The Hell Series, Jaye Roycraft
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, Sci Fi & Fantasy

Like the first book this isn’t really romance as I’d class it. We do meet Cade’s past love, and see show they got together but that’s about it. I kind of expected more, but after the first book suspected I wasn’t going to get it. Still, it was a good read and one I enjoyed.

Once again the story is told in alternating past and present format, with Cade’s early days as a vampire being seen. We can relate to how he acts now when we see some of those early battles and the problems he had. There’s a brief part where Vall from the last book comes in, where we see how he and Cade split over the Hell events.
Cade’s accused of murder now, he knows he can’t let things stand, or go through the normal channels as he’s clearly been set up in a very accomplished way. It leads to him and his second, Thor, being on the run, staying at various safe houses set up for just this eventuality. Cade hasn’t got to this great age without planning for as much as possible. Red, a blood whore, gets caught up in it all too and has to come along. Things get heated, there are assassination attempts, more human murders, political ploys and vampire True deaths, and Cade seems to be enemy number one from all sides – how on earth can he find his way out of this? Who can he trust, and who’s out to get him? Help comes from an unexpected source, though even then he’s unsure of how much he can trust it.
I like Cade, he seems to want to protect his people, though he’s not been always proactive about it in the past. He’s not a “love story” type vampire, but one who’s pragmatic and kills when its needed. I couldn’t guess who was behind all the moves, tried to work it out but failed miserably! I enjoyed the snippets into his past too where we saw how he’d developed into his current form. Overall it was a fun read but not one I’d reread.
Stars: Four, enjoyable suspense mystery to puzzle out.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
