Immortal Warrior

Immortal Warrior by Lisa Hendrix

What was this book about?

Ivo and his friends all were sent into battle by their king to find a treasure and instead they killed a witch's son. The witch - Cwen cursed all the men so that they were transformed into animals. Some were animals at night, while others were animals during the day. They couldn't be killed.

So Ivo was forced into the world and found his way by helping King William. William, pleased by Ivo's work granted him land - and a wife. Ivo had no plans for a wife but once he met her and realized she was his - he couldn't stay away.

But the curse is definitely a problem. In 1095 anyone who turned into an eagle during the day would be considered a demon. And Ivo was not a demon - just a cursed man. Can he convince Alaida that he loves her and wants to spend his life with her? Can she take the truth of his existence?

What did you think about the book?

I really liked this book. It had a touch of the paranormal and a touch of the classic historical romance. The characters were strong and likable - with enough realism for you to believe that they actually existed (and in fact the author got the names of the lord and his children from actually history).

I definitely will read the next book in the series.

The whole time I was reading the book - I just wasn't sure what was going to happen. I didn't know if they would find the evil witch Cwen. I loved the witch/healer Merewyn and both of Ivo's friends as well. I couldn't wait to see how they were going to break the curse.

What genre would you consider this?
Paranormal Historical Romance
