    Good read and nice ending to the series. Love the shocker about Paxton. Hope there’s a book for Hunter and Vero in the works.

    First of all, love all of Zanetti’s books. Was excited about the Seven series and how each book was a piece leading up to the ritual! But I must ask, where was the ritual? It didn’t even take up a chapter! You shoot blood bullets and eat half a heart and that’s it? Don’t get me wrong, loved Paxton and Hope’s story, but there could have been more details and everyone involved showing up for the grand finale! Very disappointed!

    This is such an awesome series! If you have not read it, start from the beginning and meet these awesome characters. Hope, Pax and Drake have been together for a very long time. Will Drake take after the family and use Hope for his own gain? Will Pax be able to keep Hope from harm and finally get her to realize that’s he’s the one and only male for her? So much action and love! It’s MUST READ!
  • So very good

    O. M. Gosh I love everything about this book!!I knew Hope’s book was going to be great but I had no idea that Pax was going to steal my heart. This book has it all. Hot sexy times and laughter and nail biting suspense. Just such a great book. There has to be more in this series. Please say there will be more. Talen is my all time favorite but I have to say Pax is right there next to him. Well maybe an inch behind him.

    Warrior's Hope is the book I have been waiting for. I have wondered for years who would Hope choose, Drake or Paxton. I never thought of the possibility of a third male coming into her life. I know who I wanted her to mate, but I really didn't know how it would all play out. I sooooo wanted to know. I will admit I was tempted to take a little peek at the last few chapters. Not knowing and having to wait has been challenging. I am so happy I resisted the temptation. I knew the book would be packed with goodness. I am so grateful to Rebecca Zanetti for writing such an addictive story that I couldn't do it. As tempted as you might be, don't skip to the end. Warrior's Hope is jam packed with shocking moments. The world, as the Realm knew it, could end at any time. The Kurgans are fighting dirty. Ulric, now leader of the Cyst, has dreams of grandeur. An unknown hacker is showing the Realm they aren't assecure as they thought they were. Enhanced females are disappearing from the Realm. The Seven still want to destroy Ulric. Rebecca Zanetti takes the reader on a wild ride of discovery. Grab yourself some delicious snacks. Stock yourself up with your favorite drinks. Find a comfy spot to read Warrior's Hope. Put up a "Do Not Disturb" sign. Settle in for the most enticing story I have read this year. Get lost in the battles. Swoon over the hunky warriors. Devour the romance and declarations of love. Bask in the knowledge that traitors to the Realm get what they deserve. Get ready to say "I didn't see that coming." It was something I said numerous times. Warrior's Hope is riddled with great battles. If the story was on the big screen I would have been hiding my eyes during the great battle. The details, the horrors made everything so real. Warrior's Hope is a story I will remember for a very long time. Now it is time to binge read the complete series.

    Warrior’s Hope by Rebecca Zanetti Dark Protectors series #16. Conclusion of the second arc between Vampire’s Faith this book. Best read as part of the series in order. Paranormal romance. Hope Kayrs-Kyllwood has always known that she is the key to a specific destiny. As a prophet, she believes her job is to somehow bring the two nations together. Her choice is between duty and love, peace and war, with the fate of everyone she loves hanging in the balance. Drake is the leader of the Kurjan nation. Hope and Drake have known each other since they were children when Hope was able to create a dream world. He believes that taking Hope as a mate will be the ultimate win for their collective future. Paxton has been Hope’s best friend and protector their whole lives. He will kill and die for her without a second thought. It’s his path. It’s time for Hope to make life altering choices. Can she love one or the other exclusively or can sh bring the warring nations together in peace? It’s time. Hope feels she must be the link to bring everyone together for the future. She’s the only female vampire ever born. Her bloodline includes demon, vampire, witch and has yet to manifest any powers. She might just have to face the fact that she’s more human than anything else. Hope is caught in the middle between duty and love. Can she turn duty into love? For the good of the Realm and Kurjan nations? My heart has been bleeding for Hope for years. I was always silently hoping she wouldn’t have to make a choice. Pax is so loyal and protective. And hot! He will do anything for Hope. Beat him up and put him in a cell and his thoughts are “is Hope ok? Did she get a warmer coat? Did someone heal her arm and take her pain away?” I admit the fighting/battle was sometimes a bit too much for me. The drama, and choices, and love were explosive and satisfying. And so heart-clenching! I wasn’t sure what to expect in the conclusion but it doesn’t disappoint in the least. Loved this so much. All the stars.
  • Great ending!

    By ~Mindy Lou~
    What an ending! I honestly didn't see it ending that way. I had no idea how they were going to take down Ulric but I also did not see that coming. I have to say I had a hard time seeing Hope, Paxton and Drake as adults in this book. We've gotten to see them grow up together as kids in all the previous books, that I guess I wasn't ready for them to be adults. Maybe it has something to do with knowing this would end this series which I have enjoyed so much. Either way, I do love who Hope ended up with and thought this was a great way to finalize the story. This series has been such a treat to read. I loved all the characters. I loved all the action. I loved how close these characters were and how they had each others backs and even strangers backs. All the main characters in each book truly were protectors.

    I have two words for this book, Hope and Paxton. The trials, the tribulation, the loyalty, the love. This was great and long awaited. One of my favorites of the series. Go in with an open mind. There is a whole lot to unwrap here. Lots of twists and turns, and hot guys!
