Book Description

July 5 2007
Medieval Dark Fantasy: An epic romance is featured in this masterfully written novel that takes place in the mystical, magical Dark Ages. Kamara Lania is a pacifistic priestess whose goal is to unite the realm with the divine love. Meanwhile, a violent self-serving warlord, Kayenté Ketola, is acquiring dominion of the realm on his journey to become King. They are both thwarted by a supernatural being "The Cold One" who is consuming the world because good and evil in their extremes, always fall. Mystical interplay, characteristic of Shakespeare, throws the Priestess and the Warlord into a harrowing and complicated, even comical transformation where they each must become more like the other to save the world. This novel impassions the heart, unleashes laughter and pumps adrenaline. The plot erupts with mysticism, magic, and romance as the mystery unravels with unpredictable twists and turns in the spirit of Hitchcock, while richly exposing the psychology of the human struggle, highlighted by entanglements with supernatural beings. This novel promises to entertain and to lighten the darkest most secret corners of the hidden self, while imparting wisdom needed in today's world.

Excerpt:

She crawled carefully through dancing feet, under clanking swords, and a rain of blood. She heard whisking and whipping, thumps and thuds, grunts and groans, curses, prayers, and the blasting beat of a thousand hearts, the world yet spinning round and round.

She prayed the warriors would be too engaged in battle to bother with her. Her gown kept catching under her knees, pulling the neck down around her shoulders. Metal feet slammed down around her. Something wet poured over her neck and dripped down her skin curving around her throat. It smelled like blood. However, everything reeked of blood. She kept moving, forbidding tears, wishing she'd drank a second glass of wine, for the elixir seemed to distance her somewhat from the horrors she normally felt.

Ahead, on the outskirts of the battle, she glimpsed a lone oak tree ahead of her, looming there, a live thing, like a mother bidding her to come and fall upon her breast.

Thinking only of the tree, the tree, the beautiful tree, she found herself more quickly there. She dropped her shoulder against the fragrant bark, and curled into a tight ball, very still, afraid to move, lest a knife come flying at her, the way Kayenté had once told her it could.

Her eyes were closed, but the image of swords and bludgeoned bodies flashed erratically in her mind. This battle was like the one in her nightmare: warriors, swords, arrows, blood; and she curled against a tree in a dirty white gown, trembling. Would The Cold One appear next?

Her arm was snatched. Someone pulled her forward so swiftly, she felt like a shooting star. Her vision blurred, so fast they did run. When they stopped, she fell to her hands and knees in the thick foliage, panting hard with burning lungs. Someone stood next to her. Would she now behold The Cold One? What was, was; and what was to be, was to be. She could not change it, so she sat back on her knees and looked up to see dust covered leather pants, and a sword dripping blood. Raising her eyes further, she saw Kayenté's face. It was Kayenté who towered over her!

Her hand flew to her heart. "You aren't The Cold One."

He squatted, resting the sword over his knees. "I don't know about that."

1.0 out of 5 stars more editing less ego July 6 2011
By kc
Format:Paperback
This book is poorly written. If the author had a good editor and less ego (The "about the author" section is possibly the longest I have ever read and the author really loves herself), this book might be readable. - Take just one example of the author's poor writing style
"she curled against a tree in a dirty white gown" - the tree was wearing a dirty gown? A waste of time and money!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst fantasy or romance I've ever read Sept. 26 2009
By Natwoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on other reviews by Amazon readers. What a mistake! I've read a lot of fantasy and a lot of romance. This is possibly the worst I've ever read in either category. Things that bothered me: 1. Constantly sobbing and crying heroine 2. Incestual rapes (really, do they need to be in this book and all through the story??) 3. Lame and constant sexual references 4. Characters were just haphazardly thrown in - like the mysterious twin sister vampire...Vampire? Any development on why, how she became a vampire or anything? No, she just grinds her lower jaw and bites and sucks blood. Thats it. Same thing happens with other villians - just thrown in. Poor development 5. Horrible editing - I do mean horrible. I can tell this book did not go through a major publisher as there are typos all the way through as well as half sentences repeated when a new page starts and incorrect spellings. There was probably a typo at least every other page. I quit trying to attempt to figure out what the characters would be saying sometimes because the quote marks were in the wrong places and multiple times you could tell an edit was made to a sentence but the sentence ended up jumbled and didn't make any sense.
I was hoping for a great fantasy romance. What I got was a smutty and poorly written story - I even started laughing at parts because the editing was so poor and the characters were just so terrible. I guess I kept reading in hopes that it would get better, but it was awful to the end. I am going to toss this book out - not a chance I'll be reading it again or recommending it to anyone else - EVER!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, sexy, romantic!! March 18 2011
By ArtisticInAZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this to be a book with depth, a thinking person's book. I loved that the author took me into the characters minds and delved into the depth of their personal thoughts, feelings, doubts, fears, hopes and dreams. Incredibly romantic, wildly fascinating and exciting; I was on the "edge of my seat" during many parts of this book. I truly did not know which direction the plot would take which made it all the more interesting to read.

I am surprised at the negative reviews written about this book. It seems to me that the people who wrote them were just looking for light fluff to read. This book is not light; it will challenge your way of thinking and seeing the world.

I highly recommend it.

I can honestly say it takes alot to grab me and keep me interested in a book. Warriors in the Mist has done just that. The characters hold your attention with genuine appeal. I would recomend this book to anyone who is looking for a book to escape into.
