Paladin Warriors #1
A STRANGER IN THE NIGHT...
He had once been a warrior of the Light, one of the revered Paladin. A protector. But now he lives in darkness, and the shadows are his sanctuary. Every day is a struggle to overcome the bloodlust. Especially the day Karissa shows up at his doorstep.
COMES KNOCKING ON THE DOOR
She is light and bright and everything beautiful—despite her scratches and torn clothes. Every creature of the night is after her. So is every male Paladin. Because Karissa is the last female of their kind. But she is his. He may not have a soul, but he can't deny his heart.
I seriously LOVED this book. Ms. Hilaire does a great job of creating a unique, exciting, diverse world. Her world is not only filled with angels and the bad guy vampires, but we also have demons, succubi, imps and the bad guy Lucifer himself makes an appearance.
Roland was once a Paladin, a warrior for God, until the night he is killed and made into a vampire. Now he is just trying to hold onto what little humanity remains within him. When his old friend Lucas asks for help he wants to say no but can't bring himself to deny his brother and last tie to his old life.
Karissa has had her whole world turned upside down when she finds her Grandfather murdered. She runs to the one man that her Grandfather said would always protect her and that man turns her over to a vampire.
This book is full of interesting characters. Roland's fight with himself to try and deny his feelings for Karissa because he is soulless and therefore not worthy of her. Karissa, turned out to be a much stronger heronine that I thought she was going to be at first. But the strong point for this book for me are the secondary characters. At the top of my "I need to know more" list has got to be Gabby! That little half breed piqued my interest and I have a feeling is going to give Valin and the rest of the Paladin's a run for their money.
If you are looking for a fast paced read with great characters and the ultimate battle between good and evil, then grab Deliver Me From Darkness and enjoy!
