Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Review: A Dark Champion by Kinley MacGregor(Sherrilyn Kenyon)

A Dark Champion (Brotherhood/MacAllister, #6) A Dark Champion by Kinley MacGregor

My rating: 
 


Synopsis:

Fearless men, their allegiance is to one another, to the oppressed, and to the secret society known as the Brotherhood of the Sword—and they must never surrender to the passionate yearnings of their noble hearts.
A Lady of Love
Beautiful, peace-loving Rowena knows that Stryder of Blackmoor is a warrior, and is therefore a man to be shunned.
But something burns in the eyes of this powerful knight that she has never seen in others of his kind: a tenderness, and a need to love and be loved. Yet to enter his world would be madness—against every principle by which she has lived her life—so she must resist the yearning that would draw her into his arms.
A Man of War
Duty bound to battle for right, Stryder has never desired the comforts of home and hearth—until he gazed upon the exquisite face and form of the incomparable Rowena. He dares not succumb to her sensuous charms, for Stryder is a man sworn to know no love. But when treachery and danger threaten, the noble knight must stand as the unsuspecting lady's champion—though his actions could cost him his honor, his heart. . . and his forbidden dream of happiness.

Review:
Another fantastic edition to the Brotherhood/MacAllister series by the fantastic Kinley MacGregor.(Sherrilyn Kenyon)


Each story was one I grew to love, especially Sin's story, but I was surprised with how quickly Stryder snuck up on me. He was a wonderful hero. I feel that I could write about him all day. He's strong, powerful, dark, trusting, caring and mots of all loyal. Of all the novels I've read, he may be the most loyal, not just with his actions, but his in heart as well.


Stryder and his brotherhood have had a rough, terror filled past. They keep to themselves and protect each other. The closest thing to love they have is the bond they share together. The first few chapters really open up a new outlook in the series, bringing a different twist that pulls you in easily. I wanted to find the villian. I wanted to to see some closure.And I wanted to see both Stryder and Rowena open up and be happy.
I espeically loved when Stryder was playful and fun with Rowena. The tickle scene was adorable.


Some parts were predictable, but that's a given since it is a love story. Rowena was a fun heroine to read along with and I loved her sense of humour. The secondary characters were also great. I especially loved Kit. Since this series was written and finished a few years back, I'm pretty disappointed that Kit didn't get a story. I was really expecting it after read this. Sherrilyn, if you read this...Please write a story with Kit!!! *puppy dog eyes*


That being said, I loved this read. It was such a well put together novel that I read it fairy quickly(a few hours) and it felt much more like a light read because it all flowed together nicely.


I highly recommend this series to all historical romance lovers. Although it's a historical novel, I can almost compare it to a lighter version of the BDBH, not for it's writing, but for the brothers/friends bonds. I look forward to Christins novel, but again.. I want more!
