Review for Warrior Mine: Retribution by Elliot Deveraux

Title: Warrior Mine: Retribution
Author: Elliot Dev

Description:  Angelique Devereaux is a dark legend, once a Chosen Warrior of god, she betrayed her
oaths to love one who was forbidden. Cast out, cursed and scarred, she continues her battle alone. Until a soul as tortured as her own stumbles across her path. Asher Elliot is lost in his own darkness when he first sees the tall warrior known to legend simply as The Slayer. Tortured by the deaths of his wife and children, this grieving warrior is nonetheless drawn to the timeless, cold being he witnesses at work. Like him, she deals in death and her justice is swift, sometimes messy, but always final. He follows her, watching, growing ever more captivated by her, until finally he must reach out to claim what his reawakened heart wants most.

Book Two in the exciting new series WARRIOR MINE. Retributions continues the passionate and ever-changing relationship that is building between Asher Elliot and Angelique Devereaux.

Asher's past has come back to haunt him in a way that threatens to open old wounds just as they've begun to heal. When he is contracted to do a job, he shuts "Angie" out and goes to exact his personal vengeance for the sins committed against those he loved.

Angelique has never been part of humanity, is still struggling to find her way in the midst of love and passion that is alien to her immortal soul. The ties of blood have revealed Asher's pain to her, and she will not allow anyone to hurt him if she is able to stop it.

As the two warriors each set out on the path of retribution, they are once again drawn back to each other. Face to face with Asher, Angelique wonders if he can forgive her, and her beloved male is trying hard to understand her fear of not being good enough for his love.

They have a long way to travel before true understanding will make them whole, will their love be strong enough to keep them together for their journey?

My Thoughts: Angelique and Asher are back in loving bliss. For the first time in what seems like forever they both have a reason to smile. Though shortly Ashers past crashes back into him, bringing him back to the anger and pain Angelique helped dissolve and that does not please her one bit. So she sets about for her own mission and that is to make those who brought him back to the pain pay for it.

Another great short on the insight of two fiercely strong and passionate warriors. Well written and leaves you wanting the next installment right away. Asher has to face his past demons to let go and Angelique loves him so much that her love is to avenge what she knows is a set up. Even though they are both fiercely strong they are both vulnerable in their own ways, but the love and passion for each other is what makes them see a light at the end of the tunnel even if getting to that light will always be a hard road. Once again, only complaint is too short and I am anxiously awaiting the next installment to see where this road will lead.

4 out of 5
