From the Publisher: Eden’s life has taken a turn she would never have imagined. She’s gone from soul eater to warrior, left behind a family she was ashamed of and moved in with one she admires. She has a purpose, a future, and… she has Noah.
Life should be good.
But… the most fervent and powerful soul eaters are determined to take down the Ankh and Eden is the key to the destruction of the warrior race.
Moreover, a shadowed enemy is still after Eden, and the mortal Warriors of Neith have chosen the worst time imaginable to start an uprising.
With an enemy in every corner, the problems before her are overwhelming. Then again, Eden hasn’t come this far to let anyone snatch her new life from her…
However, just when Eden thought she’d battled the monster within and won, the warrior who took something precious from her comes back into her life, tempting Eden to take a course of revenge there is no turning back from.
Vengeance is such a bitch…So is Eden when the stakes are high.
****The Book Hookup was SO delighted to have our awesome friend, Michelle (aka TC1 / TwilightCougar1) guest review this last book in the series for us. Thank you, Michelle! ♥ ****
Michelle’s Review: So the third and last *sniff* book in the Warriors of Ankh book series…what can I say that’s spoiler free? You are in a wholely unique universe filled with characters you are strongly attached to, external and internal demons are closing in on you, and your world is almost ending. Perfect climax to our action-packed, satisfying, coming-of-age, kick-ass warrior woman heroine story.
I only have one complaint…oh yeah and that is the fade-to-black Stephanie Meyer style love scenes…What can I say? I know its Young Adult fiction…but Samantha, I wanted more…more!..Maybe I just wanted more of all of these characters…yup…I was seriously sad when I read; “Dude we’re Ankh. What’s not to love?” So sad I emailed the author and asked her if she intended to continue the Warrior of Anhk Series…She was lovely and said:
“Thank you so much, your email means a lot!
I don’t have any plans at the moment to write more Ankh books. I’ve had a few requests for more books and I never say never! So perhaps in the future I’ll return to the Ankh. Unfortunately I’m too busy with other projects at the moment to give a definitive answer on it though :-s”
So there is hope…
