Love these series
While i dont believe in supernatural or mystical things, outside of God Himself, i love karens stories. They are filled with history and mystical beliefs of the indians of long ago. The love stories are beautiful and always end happy. I figure that i live reality. I love stories that help me escape from it. And karens books never disappoint me. This is my 10th book by her. My only disapointment is that i cant wait for her to write another one.

I have read many of her books and am sorry to say this onr was very poor. I give it a 3 out of 10. If you havent read her angel and the warrior book, do it, it was amazing! A 9 out of 10! Sadly, this story does not live up to the quality of her other works.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Review of Soaring Eagle¿s Embrace (Legendary Warriors) by Karen

Heart-warming, endearing and a love to endure throughout time! This was an incredible novel!
Karen Kay fantastically wove the legends about the Blackfoot Indians with the story she had written. This was an incredible reading journey. I fell in love with all the characters, from the stubborn very independent (very unusual for the era yet very refreshing) Kali Wallace who travels all over with her father photographing people to Soaring Eagle, a high ranking member of the Blackfoot Indian tribe she needs to photograph.
We all have heard and read stories of the horrors of how the "entitled" whites treated the Native Americans during the 1700's through the 20th Century. And while so many books about Native Americans and "whites" use the old clichés of the Indian being rude and crude or kidnapping his future wife or her being some simpering wimp or having to fight to prove her worth, this story is different.
It evokes a romance and creates a bond between the reader and the book from the moment you open it till the last page is read. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the times of the Western Frontier and was fascinated by the beauty that Karen Kay wrote with regarding the details of the peoples and the land.
A stubborn man and a stubborn woman who never allow politics or perceived prejudices cement themselves in the way of the love for each other. Kali (short for Kalifornia) and Soaring Eagle have a destiny together that they never seem to question and for that I am happy. The little movie playing in my head while reading this book was a blockbuster with sweeping panorama views and emotional musically score.
Karen Kay writes with her whole heart. She researches and dives in to her stories one hundred and ten percent. The only problem I had was that it had to eventually come to an end. But I will most definitely be ready for the next one, and the next, and....do you see a pattern starting here?
Maybe now I need to take a tiny trip to Montana!

In 1895, Kali Wallace and her father come to Montana to photograph Indians. However, the local tribe seems uninterested in posing though one warrior Soaring Eagle goes so far as to scorn the two whites. However, as Soaring Eagle becomes better acquainted with the idealistic naïve Kali, he finds to his disbelief he is quite attracted to her.<P> As they sleep apart, Soaring Eagle and Kali share the same dream in which the spirit world marries them. She denies it, but he is elated because he realizes that he loves her. As Kali begins to accept the reality of the shared dream, she knows she loves Soaring Eagle, but realizes nothing can come of their relationship as she is a globetrotting photographer and his people need him here in Montana.<P> The latest Karen Kay Legendary Warrior tale (see WAR CLOUD¿S PASSION and LONE ARROW¿S PRIDE is a fascinating paranormal historical romance. Readers will find fascinating the depths that Ms. Kay plunges her audience into a close look at Indian spiritualism. Soaring Eagle is a delightful male lead as he quickly changes from antagonist to protagonist. On the other hand, it is frustrating is that the lead female spends much of the tale in denial until a photograph persuades her to reconsider. Still sub-genre fans will embrace this soaring novel.<P> Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Passionate and Spellbinding
Soaring Eagle's Embrace by Karen Kay Avon ISBN: 0-380-82067-6 Release Date: July, 2003 Soaring Eagle's Embrace is the fourth book in Karen Kay's 'Legendary Warriors' series. Just as passionate and spellbinding as the previous three books, this one weaves a tale that will stick with readers long after the last page is turned and the book put up on the keeper shelf. Kali Wallace and her father are in Montana to photograph the beautiful landscape that runs right through the heart of Blackfeet country. When a young Indiana guide, Gilda, tells an ancient story about love, betrayal and new chances, Kali is captivated. She soon meets Soaring Eagle, who mistrusts all white men and women. He refuses to allow her to photograph his people. But a powerful force, more ancient than their own prejudices, will shape their future and they'll find themselves inexplicably drawn to one another. And even though Soaring Eagle realizes that she is the 'one' and he must ask her to become his wife, their cultural differences and beliefs still keep them apart. The characters are rich in detail and seem to practically dance off the paper right from the first few pages. The story about Evening Star and Strong Arrow and their passionate love affair that seemed doomed from the first--the thought that these two souls would search for one another through the ages crept into my mind and I felt a tug at my heartstrings after that first chapter that kept me reading to the ending so I could find out what their ultimate fate would be. Kay always writes a romance that keeps me interested throughout and leaves me with that warm glow that only a good romance can produce in your heart. Soaring Eagle's Embrace is one of her best books to date. ~Lori Soard, author of Housebreaking A HusbandWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
