I was getting wary of Harlequin books. You see, all these while I’ve been devotedly reading Harlequin Presents, a line in Harlequin books where the themes are rather repetitive. There’s always bosses, millionaires, mistresses, marriage of convenience and whatnot, and so when I was given the opportunity to review The Last Warrior by Susan Grant, another book from the publisher Harlequin, I wasn’t very excited as I thought it will be another one of those books where the storyline is so lame and not original.

But boy, was I wrong for this book, The Last Warrior is nothing like those regular Harlequin Presents books that I’ve been reading to pass time all these while.

The Last Warrior by Susan Grant is a gripping, powerful and mesmerizing tale about a warrior who had been betrayed by the King that he had been serving and he had lost the sense of belonging.

He was thrown in a world of deception and betrayal, and also strange emotions that he had never had to deal with before.

The Last Warrior is a very moving and thrilling tale set in a fantasy world, and it’s one hell of a romance story that you would not want to miss if you’re a fantasy romance lover.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

This book will be released on 26th April 2011. For more information on this title, please click here to visit the author’s website. I received a digital ARC of this book from Harlequin via Netgalley. I was not compensated in any ways for writing this.

Book description:

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author SUSAN GRANT is back with a passionate love story for the eons…

As a decorated soldier, the young General Tao knows only one kind of honor—to his people. But when his own king betrays him, he discovers that his sacrifices, his successes, may not have been for the good of the country at all.

Fate—and his enemies—throw him together with Elsabeth, a red-haired beauty who has served as the royal tutor. Her loyalties, though, remain with her father’s people, the rebellious Kurel, who worship the old ways, even harboring the forbidden arks that brought the Kurel to this planet ages ago. When a threat greater than their peoples’ war looms, intent on destroying the world they both know, the fierce warrior and the sensitive scholar must unite. Together, they must fight for their planet, for their world and for their love.
