Storm Warrior (Grim #1) by Dani Harper

17899157Blurb: Enslaved for millennia by the masters of the Welsh faery realm, the fierce Celtic warrior Rhys is doomed to wander the earth forever. But when a brave beauty unwittingly breaks the enchantment, he is drawn into a strange new world…and an all-consuming desire.

Sensible Morgan doesn’t believe in magic—until a mysterious being saves her from a fate worse than death, and life as she knows it changes forever. Now the man of her dreams has become flesh and blood, igniting a spark in Morgan’s soul which science cannot explain. But even a love that transcends time may not be strong enough to withstand the power of an ancient curse.

From the best-selling author of Changeling Moon, this stirring novel of passion and magic launches an addictive new series for fans of paranormal romance.

This story started out great, then it slowed down a bit, then it picked up, then…you get the idea.  I had a hard time with the ebb and flow of the pacing TBH.  I generally have found that the books I read are pretty consistent in their pacing so this one threw me off.

Rhys is a strong, typical welsh/celtic warrior.  I wasn’t too impressed with him except for his assimilation into the current culture.  Jay and Starr were happy hippies who loved their hobbies and were very supportive of Morgan.  Almost like older siblings. Leo was my favorite supporting character.  He was funny, straight to the point and I liked how he wasn’t the same age as the MC.  It gave the story a little more non-linear feel to it if that makes sense.

I found Morgan to be a bit confusing because the author kept referencing her love of her grandmothers fairy tale/myth stories yet she refused to believe that they could be true.  Then the major epiphany came across to me as a bit melodramatic.  Even the climax seemed a bit of a let down.  Her inner conflict seemed very important to her, yet it all seemed to fall away once the physical attraction came into play.   I will say I loved how she tried to always protect herself and doesn’t expect others to step in.

I did enjoy the story, character flaws notwithstanding.  I don’t think I will be reading the rest of the series anytime soon though.  I got everything I wanted out of this story and have no desire to continue in this world.  Maybe that could change in the future, but for now I need to focus on the series I have to finish before I go deeper into another one.

I received this book from the Kindle for Samsung app on my phone.  I get some great books from there.  Who turns down a free book a month?  Crazy people, that’s who.
