Synopsis:

Anna Wilkins is a prototypical housewife. She buys groceries, picks up the dry cleaning and hosts dinner parties.

Everything was picture perfect from the outside looking in until the life she was born to live collided with the life she was living. Her husband is murdered by a creature from another realm, a creature that is only visible to her. Through her pain, his death awakens a part of her she didn't know existed. She is then thrust into a life of Vampires, Werewolves and Sexy Nephilim Warriors.

Drawn to her by a bond as old as their race, a Nephilim Warrior finds Anna at her darkest hour and seeks to arouse what lies dormant within her. The scorching sexual attraction she and the Warrior feel for one another may be beyond anything either of them can control...

Excerpt:

“Let’s spar, Torch.” I faced him with determination.

He threw his head back and laughed. “You think you’re strong enough to take me on now, do you?”

I knew I wasn’t stronger than he, but in learning to control my flame, I had gained the knowledge that I was faster. The warrior inside the flame gave me confidence as she became one with me.

“You’re not afraid, are you?” I winked at him and then walked over to the wall, taking two sparring sticks off the rack, and tossed one to Torch. I sauntered back over to him, swaying my hips.

I was becoming a confident woman a force to be reckoned with. Before he could respond, I attacked, setting up high before striking low with my rod. This was my first mistake. I should have waited for him to advance first, since he was bigger and stronger.

He deflected, attempting to take my legs out from under me, so I jumped high, my feet
almost reaching the top of his head before he landed a blow to my back. Pain radiated
down my spine, but I took it in; it was fuel to my fire.

I kept in mind the three basic rules of fighting: release energy, reserve energy, and regenerate energy. I roundhouse kicked and he stumbled backwards. I smiled. We fought for what felt like half an hour before he finally pinned me to the mat. I promptly pushed my breasts into his chest and moaned. As he pulled back, looking startled, I slowly reached down and unsheathed the dagger that I had strapped to the inside of my thigh then ran the hilt of the dagger across his neck.

“Dead,” I laughed as he rose off me. “Never underestimate the power of boobs, Torch.”

My Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I love a good, kick-ass female protagonist, and Anna certainly fits the bill. Prophecy of the Female Warrior starts out quite sad, with the funeral for Anna's recently deceased husband. Little does she realize, his death is just the beginning of a remarkable journey she's about to undertake. For Anna is not quite who she thought she was, and the world is not quite as normal as she thought either.

Annabelle never felt like she belonged, not within her family, friends, or even the town. After her husband dies, a whole world is revealed to her, one that lies hidden from our normal everyday lives. Anna rises to the challenge, embracing her new destiny. She's a fun, fearless, witty character who doesn't back down from a fight. The overall change in her is utterly amazing. Even though the change occurs rather quickly, I still love the kick-ass character she becomes.

Eli is the Nephilim Warrior who reveals Anna's true heritage, and is the ultimate alpha male. While I normally don't like testosterone levels quite this high, he's counterbalanced quite well by Anna's refusal to back down from him. Their attraction to each other is immediate, scorching and undeniable.

The plot is very fast paced, making it hard to put the book down once started. I enjoyed the dialogue between the characters, especially some of the humorous things that popped from Anna's mouth. There are several secondary characters that really stand out, including Torch (from the excerpt above), Van (Eli's lecherous cousin), and Elise (Anna's new best friend among the Nephilim).

I really enjoyed Prophecy of the Female Warrior, and read it without stopping. If you enjoy paranormal romance with a good dose of humor, add this series to your to-read list.
