Possessed by a Dark Warrior (Eternal Mates Paranormal Romance Series Book 9)
A powerful warrior and commander of the dark elf legions, Bleu is a loyal and devoted male, and one who has never failed in anything--except one thing. Love. When an elusive female dragon shifter surfaces in Hell again, giving him a mission to hurl himself into, he gladly returns to his hunt for her and the deadly blade she stole from his prince seven centuries ago, but as he closes in on his prey, fate reveals she is far more than his enemy.

Having escaped from the black market arena and her life as a slave, Taryn sets her sights back on the task she began seven hundred years ago when her brother stole a precious sword, but in the three centuries she's been a captive, everything has changed. Corrupted by a craving for power, her brother has become dangerously obsessed with finding the blade and using it to claim the ultimate treasure--the position of King of Hell.

Faced with having to end her beloved twin to stop him from bringing all of Hell to its knees before him, will Taryn be strong enough to use the very blade he seeks against him? And when Bleu finally catches his elusive prey, will he listen to his head as it demands he complete his mission or his heart as it demands he claim his eternal mate?

Quite possibly my favorite book in the series. (So far!) Possessed by a Dark Warrior has been wildly anticipated by myself and other fans of the series since book one. I believe it was well worth the wait. Felicity's writing gets better with every book she releases. The characters and worlds she creates are some of the best in the paranormal romance genre. I love how vivid and captivating every moment is- whether it's an intense battle scene or a tender love scene. This installment of the series is larger than the last few stories and I really enjoyed that. We got to spend more time with the characters, watching them change and evolve and learning more about them. Because of this, the characters themselves- Bleu and Taryn- are one of my favorite parts of the book. They're so complex with such a fascinating history between them. It was wonderful to watch their story unfold. Like with all of the author's other paranormal tales, there are heaping doses of romance and action. This is another reason I was glad the book was longer. These aspects are allowed to flow while the reader gets to enjoy them fully. This allowed for the pacing to work wonderfully. Everything is drawn out to the perfect point and nothing is rushed or cut short. The ending is perfect and left me with a smile. This series is a must read for all paranormal romance fans. I would recommend starting from the beginning of the series as character crossovers happen a lot within the series, though I don't think it would be completely necessary.

This book hits a home run with one of my favorite book boyfriends, Bleu, getting his story told.... I was getting worried that he would lose himself to the darkness and I really didn't want that. Bleu's story is an exciting and quite revealing story for me regarding his personality and what he was made of. I loved learning more of Bleu's earlier life and how it shaped him while the author moves you through the story line opening more windows to his past showing a side to him that made me love his character even more. Things are not always as they seem and Taryn is a good example of that. I was pulled into her character with the vignettes in this book and previous books, so discovering she was going to impact Bleu really got my mind going with all the possibilities. But the author of course added some unexpected fun twists to this story keeping the reader guessing to the last pages on how it would end. There are secondary characters in this book from previous books to the Eternal Mates series tying everything up in a nice pretty package. The author does an outstanding job of keeping the reader clear on the characters and their relationships to each other making all her books to the series a joy to read. I give this 5 STARS for exceeding my hopes. Check out the book I know you will be glad you did.

3.75 stars--- POSSESSED BY A DARK WARRIOR is the ninth installment in Felicity Heaton’s adult ETERNAL MATES paranormal/fantasy romance series. This is Commander Bleu of the Dark Elf legions , and dragon shifter Taryn’s story line. POSSESSED BY A DARK WARRIOR can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Commander Bleu’s story has been building throughout the series-quiet, powerful, in control, and a man who is determined to protect Prince Loren-no matter the cost. Told from dual third person perspectives POSSESSED BY A DARK WARRIOR is mostly a narrative (as per Heaton’s style of story telling) told from our heroine and hero’s points of view; a story line that presents the events from the past that have lead Bleu and Taryn to present day. Hundreds of years earlier Taryn-a female, dragon shifter, had been accused of killing thousands of elves and stealing a deadly blade belonging to the Elven people. For centuries Commander Bleu has searched for the elusive she-dragon in the hopes of taking back the blade and destroying the dragon in the process. Fast forward to present day wherein Bleu discovers the whereabouts of the deadly dragon only to realize that Taryn is his fated mate and the truth is not what he has been lead to believe. What ensues is the push and pull of a relationship that finds Taryn siding with the man that she loves against the brother she no longer knows. POSSESSED BY A DARK WARRIOR is a story with more graphic violence than in previous installments. The torture, terror and amped up cruelty is heightened in this particular story line – Taryn’s brother is a dragon possessed by the darkness and acts out against those he declares the enemy. The world building focuses on the recovery of the Elven blade, and the take down of a dragon that has destroyed so many lives. The relationship between Bleu and Taryn is one fated by DNA but Bleu believes that Taryn is responsible for the death of thousands of elves. Taryn, on the other hand, knows that Bleu is her mate, but also the man who has sworn vengeance against her for sins of the past. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense-having a mate is something new for Bleu-and he is having a difficult time keeping his emotions and possessive needs under control. POSSESSED BY A DARK WARRIOR has a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters as the different realms set to go to war with the dragons. Many of the names and faces will be familiar to readers of Felicity’s ETERNAL MATES. Taryn was first introduced to the reader in BITTEN BY A HELLCAT (Eternal Mates #6) when Taryn and several others were rescued from a slaver. There is quite a bit of duplicity and repetition throughout the story line that I thought could have been edited out-e.g. the continuous need to acknowledge eye color, clothing color, and color of the dragon-sometimes the constant reminders become filler in the story, and I found myself skipping or jumping onto the next sentence or paragraph. POSSESSED BY A DARK WARRIOR is a revealing story line; an enchanting love story about two people whose lives are thrown together by chaos and destruction; a fateful relationship that is dramatic, intense, emotional and impassioned. The premise is captivating; the characters are animated and heartbreaking; the romance is powerful and passionate. Felicity Heaton’s ETERNAL MATES series will leave the reader sated but wanting more.

Felicity has done it again! Another fabulous sexy story about my fav paranormal-Dragons! The only con I had was that the wait has been so looong for this story. I loved the visit of other characters from earlier stories, one of the main reasons I adore this ongoing series. We get the action, the sexy romance, and the dragons! Need I say more!
