The Bloodgate Warrior by Joely Sue Burkhart
Title: The Bloodgate Warrior
Author: Joely Sue Burkhart
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: The Maya Bloodgates #2
Publisher: Carina Press
Number of pages: 185
This is one of the few books in a series that works well as a stand alone. I had a much easier time getting into this book then I did the first one. I think it's because the world building was much easier, and I connected with the hero and heroine much earlier in this book then I did the second one.
I love how Cassie loved her dreams with Tecun, but wasn't sure what to do with him once he became real. Once she learns to trust him again, they worked really well together as a team trying to stop the person who killed Tecun all those years ago from getting something that would make him all powerful.
The one problem I had with this book was the zombie factor. Try as I might, I just can't get into it. I was in love with the book right up until the zombies, then I just had a hard time getting into the rest of the story.
While I did have problems with the zombie factor, I love Joely Sue Burkharts writing style. It flows nicely and her love scenes are sizzling hot and always mesh nicely with the story going on and don't seem out of place. I just wish I could have gotten more into the zombie storyline otherwise this was a really good novella.
