The Warrior (Dante Walker #3) by Victoria Scott
War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.
Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll.
Dante is built for battle, but even he can’t handle the nightmares where spiders crawl from Aspen’s eyes, or the look on Charlie’s face that foretells of devastation. To make matters worse, the enemy seizes every opportunity to break inside the Hive and cripple the liberators. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching, and to stand victorious, Dante will have to embrace something inside himself he never has before—faith.
I liked this series from the start. It had many funny moments, which are my favorite, a hot bad guy, romance and supernatural beings, places... I adore both Dante and Charlie, Aspen, Blue and Annabelle, even Kraven. They all go through hell in this book but come out stronger than before because of it. In this battle of good and evil, heaven and hell, Charlie and Aspen are in the front lines since they are the savior and the soldier. Dante is still struggling with being a good guy, he is still in doubt about where he belongs and does he deserve the good things coming his way. Charlie is the good that drives the others. She believes has faith they will succeed, that good will win and she sees beauty in almost everything. She grows so much in this book and becomes a tough, no nonsense leader. There is alos betrayal in this book, something I didnt expect. And also, the battle was missing something, maybe it was a little too short after the build up through the books. Dont get me wrong, the book was good, I had fun while reading it, it is just that the first two books were better to me.
I have to say I love the writing in this trilogy, the story line and world building, especially the humor, and I am a fan of Victoria Scott. I look forward to reading Fire and Flood, and anything else she writes. It is tough to say goodbye to Dante and the gang but they all got their ending and I am happy with that.
