In the shadows of our world, a secret band of warriors fights to protect us. They are the last line of defense against an evil no human can stop.
An ancient nemesis has resurfaced. Duty demands that Ashor Vlahos, Scimitar Magi commander, recruit a magical healer to fortify the remaining eight magi. The gods' choice is the woman who helped him escape torture a decade ago. Ashor couldn't have imagined a better punishment for his vow-breaker homicidal incidents than for the gods to bind him irrevocably to the only woman in the universe he cannot have. The soul-searing desire she ignites in him is strictly forbidden.
Kira Hardy, M.D. is a brilliant, hardworking internal med resident with big secrets. But when Ashor asks for aid after a brutal daemon attack, she is sucked into his dangerous, secret world. Enslavement to the magi, no matter how hot they are, may be an unattractive life plan, but being targeted for death by their enemies is less tolerable.
She must trust the sexy, tormented Ashor to keep her safe while he must deny his ultimate desire and keep Kira at arm's length lest he bring destruction down on them both. As a centuries-old evil catches up to them, they face a crucial decision--follow the gods' rules or follow their hearts.
Dawn of a Dark Knight by Zoe Forward starts out fast paced and never skipped a beat. Ashor leads a group of magi warriors whose goal is keep balance on earth and are governed by Egyptian deities. The chosen healer, Kira, is needed to help them in this journey, but what happens when her undeniable bond to Ashor goes against the gods rules? Will she accept the responsibility? I have to say, I loved this story. I know the warrior bit is not a new concept per se, but Dawn of a Dark Knight is completely original in its own right. I enjoyed the different point of views and the story moved effortlessly throughout each of them. The chemistry between Ashor and Kira virtually melted off the page and I loved each of their individual stories as well. If you are a fan of alpha males and strong female characters you will enjoy Dawn of a Dark Knight. This is certainly a romance, so don’t judge a book by it’s cover! =)
I rate Dawn of Dark Knight 4 out of 5 Bullets!
