This was an enjoyable book. The cover is off setting. But I'm glad I overlooked it. Just bought the second in the series. This is a supernatural book about a 30 year old find a way to DEAL with her powers even thou she really just wanted to be normal. Good world building and character development. Try it

Book One of the 'Dark Horse Trilogy', Woman King, is key to following the progression of a powerful, San Francisco-based blend of supernatural influences and P.I. investigation, and tells of an empath who spends her life blocking her abilities - until she meets an ancient time-walker who reveals that a demon has been stalking her. But if you're expecting the usual genre read that blends fantasy into a supernatural investigation, you'll be disappointed. Woman King is, in fact, a superior production that focuses on political consultant Olivia Shepherd's psyche and her process of adjusting not just to her special abilities, but to a new awareness of supernatural forces in the world. There's a spiritual purpose to the story line that has placed her on a certain trajectory; so readers who want shallow entertainment with predictable characterization should look elsewhere. Olivia's story is for those who look for depth and psychology in their story lines, who take pleasure in explicit details that leave little to wonder, and who will follow the progression of Olivia's world with an appreciation for the little things that make up that world. If this is perceived as slowing the plot progression somewhat, that's only because in a nonstop staccato world of thriller action, Woman King takes its time to build its story and protagonist. And that's not a bad attribute.  There are a lot of loose ends to Woman King's conclusion; but the fact that readers have been duly forewarned that this is part of a trilogy makes these loose ends just more of an invitation to read on.

Given To Me For An Honest Review Woman King, Second Edition (Dark horse Trilogy Book 1) by Evette Davis is a real fun book to read.  Be sure that you are sitting down  when you start because once you open it, it will grab your attention and won't let it go until the end.  You will find yourself turning page after  page after page as you are following the twists and turns.  It is fantastic!  You will find yourself in a worldwide adventure into fantasy.  I  found only one thing wrong with this book .... it ended!!! Now I am waiting for the next one.  If you enjoy reading fantasy you'll really enjoy  reading this book.  I gave it 4 stars and I recommend it to all.  I look forward to more from Evette Davis.

Let me begin by first saying, "WOW." I loved this book from start to finish. Evette Davis' book truly packs a punch and has plenty to offer including the supernatural, romance, fantasy, politics and more. At the end of the synopsis, it is mentioned that readers who enjoyed The Night Circus will enjoy Woman King, and I cannot agree more. This is a beautifully written book with an exceptionally strong plot. I am excited to read more by Evette Davis. Be sure to check out her work, I highly doubt that you'll be disappointed. Please note that I received a free copy of Woman King in exchange for my honest opinion.
