Today I’m reviewing my online friend Eva Gordon’s contemporary paranormal romance novel, Beast Warrior: Viking Werewolf, the second book of her Wolf Maiden Chronicles series. I also reviewed her paranormal romance novel, Werewolf Sanctuary, which is the first book of her Wolf Maiden Chronicles series about a week ago if you would like to know what I had to say about it before you read my review for this book. I’m also happy to say that in a couple of weeks I’ll be interviewing Eva right here on TAMFA so keep looking for it this month. Now to my review of Eva Gordon’s novel which I had such fun reading that I finished it up so quickly because I couldn’t stop reading it that I didn’t sleep until I completely finished reading it. Now in the novel Beast Warrior: Viking Werewolf which is a historical paranormal romance that takes place during the Viking Era of the Dark Ages. A time when only the strong survive which depicts alpha lycans and Sigurd, an alpha Norse wolfskin, son of Gunnolf the Red seeks revenge against shape shifting bearskins, Bork the Mad and his son, Mord the Blood Claw for the death of his parents and his older brother Guda. Orphaned, he has been raised by his older sister Brynhild, who convinces him to take a wolf maiden in order to increase their small pack. Despite the warning by Hungerd the wolf witch, he takes a farmer’s new bride with tragic consequences which ends with his pack’s demise and leads to the journey he has to take alone. He joins a long ship of Vikings until the day he can avenge his pack’s demise as well as kill Bork and Mord for the death of his father and brother as well as his mother.

Emelisse, a Frank wolf maiden, has been raised and educated in the classics, science, literature and languages by female lycans of the Lupercal. Born a runt with a weak heart her father has been overprotective but she refuses to be treated like a delicate vase and rebels by seeking out riding and falconry. Now at age the age of eighteen Emelisse frets that her father wants her to accept Radulf III the Cruel, an alpha lycan of a pack of powerful warriors. So she tries to run away with her human lover which ends in tragedy for all parties but also begins the journey to her destiny which was foretold the day of her birth. Viking werewolf, Sigurd rescues Emelisse, from the claws of the berserker bear men and when he finds out that she is has the 5 toed paw print on her hip he claims her as his ulf hexen or wolf maiden, but she wants to leave lycan society and live with humans. To complicate matters she has been called by her goddess Feronia to save the lycans from a dreaded disease and that means that she will have to stay in the lycan society if she wants her lycan family to survive was is foretold to be a disease that could wipe out both lycan and humans from the face of the earth if it is not stopped. Their union is wrought with great peril in a world where werewolves must battle against their own kind as well as their fierce enemy, the berserker bear men. Will Emelisse accept Sigurd a foreign lycan as her alpha mate? Sigurd vows to protect her from their enemies but how can he save her before she dies from her ailing heart?

OMG and Wow! That is what I had to say when I finished reading Werewolf Sanctuary and it’s exactly the same thing I had to say when I finished reading this novel because I couldn’t believe how great a read it was. From the first page to the very last page, this novel tells of an entertaining journey into the the lycan world that will give you a thrill ride in this historical paranormal romance. At the end of the first novel we find that Wyatt and Madeline are researching about the past alpha lycans and their wolf maiden life mates and reading this novel was so much fun because it gave us a past story to compare with the past of the lycan race with the present of the lycan race. I also loved that I got to learn more about alpha lycan Lupa who we only got to know a little about in the first book as a retiring alpha lycan leader of the Lurpercal. Now in this book we see her as a younger alpha lycan who is close to Emmelise and is trying to save the lycan race from a disease that is going to wipe out their race if they don’t find the cure soon. Beast Warrior: Viking Werewolf has more than enough romance, dangerous journies for both Sigurd and Emmelise that leads to plot twits and turns to give readers a page turner with satisfying experience. I very much look forward to more of Eva Gordon’s wonderful Wolf Maiden Chronicles series especially her next book in the series which is a historical paranormal romance called, White Wolf of Avalon. I give this book 4.5 Open Books:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
