Publisher's Summary

He vowed he'd come for her...

Murdered before he could wed Regin the Radiant, warlord Aidan the Fierce seeks his beloved through eternity, reborn again and again into new identities, yet with no memory of his past lives.

She awaits his return...

When Regin encounters Declan Chase, a brutal Celtic soldier, she recognizes her proud warlord reincarnated. But Declan takes her captive, intending retribution against all immortals - unaware that he belongs to their world.

To sate a desire more powerful than death...

Yet every reincarnation comes with a price, for Aidan is doomed to die when he remembers his past. To save herself from Declan’s torments, will Regin rekindle memories of the passion they once shared - even if it means once again losing the only man she could ever love?

    "love this series but..."

    Okay I'm not a fan of Chase because he's an evil rat bastard but... I understand why he is the way he is. Yes he tortured and killed many in the lore but they kinda started it. I'm just saying... his whole family was tortured and killed by loreans. He is then approached (as a grieving tortured impressionable young man) manipulated and brainwashed by the real bad guy in this thing, West. Of course I can't say Chase was right for what he did but I understand it. He has been drugged his whole life and is dealing with all these questions about dreams and pain he doesn't understand not to mention being on his own and struggling with being "different" but not knowing why. His mind is completely messed up. Regin goes through hell with guy and can forgive and forget so I guess I will. This book isn't my favorite but I'm glad Mrs. Cole didn't stick to the norm and gave us something different. The story is actually a good story and gets really good the last quarter of the book after La Dorada infiltrates the prison. By the end I actually didn't mind Chase. I mean hell, Nix helped him as a young boy knowing what is to come. Who am I to question a demi-goddess. One last thing... I'd like to know more about young Thad.

    "REGIN FOR PRESIDENT!!!"

    Wow...this book was extra emotional for me because Regin is a total B-A and to have her get emotional was thrilling and exciting at the same time. Regin is fated to the male that has been enslaving the Lorion creatures for years and pretty much was second in command, what is girl suppose to do with that? Well Regin has it covered. I love Regin! and of course Robert Petkoff ... Masterpiece as usual, but extra kudos for having extra voice's for Declan Chase, completely sublime, your talents amaze me! No question this series rules!

    "More than a 5⭐️ overall"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the book, and audiobook to anyone. Kresley Cole and Robert Petkoff are a great team. The whole series has been great and Robert is the best narrator I've ever listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dreams of a Dark Warrior?

    I really enjoy the sense of humor is all the characters. I really dig the "girl power" in all of the woman.


    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings each individual character to life with their very own accents, personally, and sound. He really helps make this book and the rest of the series Rock!

    "I'm a fan of Kresley Cole, But not this book"

    I've read all of the books in the IAD series. But I'm sorry to say, this is my least favorite of them all. Which is sad , because I was really looking forward to Regin the Radiant's story.

    The problem I had was with the main male character, Declan Chase. He is just not a good man. The things he does are really cruel, and he doesn't seem to feel bad for all the pain he has inflected on the immortals he held in his prison. I just couldn't get over that.

    Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell

    Story
    "He's Not Bad - He's Just Brainwashed"

    In a daring twist with the series, the hero of this story is the former #2 Bad Guy. It turns out he's Regan's one and only. Regan is one of my favourite characters, in moderation, she's good for the occasional funny quip, over the top action, or stupid "Val" trick but too much Regan is like an "ice cream" headache.
    The back story lists the circumstances that drove Regan's man to the dark side and while tragic, to me, they didn't excuse his past atrocities. Typically, the men in this series, indeed this genre, are larger than life, super tough, mega-Alphas. The narration was great, I just couldn't get behind a normal, sort of anti-hero.

    Story
    "You can NEVER go wrong with Kresley Cole"

    Sexy, dark, and sensual to the max! Great story, excellent narration, and a worthy addition to the series. Regin was never one of my favorite characters in the other IAD books, so I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this story, however, I am a diehard KC fan, so I knew it would be tolerable. Well, it was better than tolerable, I totally freaking loved it! There were moments where it was a little slow, but, overall it was typical KC. Declan was a great character, super intense and hot. He was so dark and hateful, it was awesome to see him fall so hard for Regin and her for him. The icing on the cake, was---Lothaire. Although I've long since read his story, I'll take a dose of Lothaire any day of the week. Definitely a must read/listen, and credit worthy.

    Story
    "LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LLLLOOOOVVVVEEEE IT!"
    Would you listen to Dreams of a Dark Warrior again? Why?

    ABSOLUTELY!


    What other book might you compare Dreams of a Dark Warrior to and why?

    None.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    Robert Petkoff has the voice for audiobooks. He really brings the story to life!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was the moment of the escape. Regin picked up the machine gun. I won't repeat what she said but I laughed for 10 straight minutes!


    Any additional comments?

    I usually don't write reviews but I couldn't pass this up. Regin has ALWAYS been my favorite character. I love her bravado and wit! I was so excited to learned that her story was coming to audio. Plus to have Mr. Petkoff to narrator, I knew it was a book I had to have. Let's just say if you purchase this book, you will not be disappointed!!!

    Story
    "Regin gets her Berserker"

    This was Regin's HEA and it is set during the same time with Lucia's book and Carrow's Book.

    Regin was engaged to Aidan the Fierce before he was murdered. He kept coming back reborn again and dying when he remembered Regin and their love. Regin gets captured by Magistrate Declan Chase, the same guy who was working for the Order and she realizes Declan is Aidan's new reincarnation.

    While she falls for her lover, she is also aghast at the havoc he is wrecking on all those she loves. She has the power to destroy him, by helping him to remember her and their love. But she is so tired of losing Aidan time and time again.

    This book was really a big emotional rollercoster and it was a lot of pain for the main characters. I really liked Declan but not like I liked Garreth and the men before. I didn't enjoy this one as much because it lacked some of the funnier moments but it did have sweet ones too.

    I am amazed at how Cole keeps simultaneous stories going on at the same time but they are all their own journeys to HEA. Bravo!

    *sighing* Lothaire, that sneaky leech is up next. I am still mad at what he did to Carrow, and the lies he told young Thad. I hope he is redeemed in his book.

    "Fantastic story fantastic characters"

    I love Kresley Cole's books. The characters, the fantasy, it's all there. In this book, the heroine and the unlikely hero, who is also a villain, have enough drama in their lives and they are aided and abetted by a bunch of other characters who are fascinating in themselves. It's a good read.

    "Great Story- Best Male Narrator Ever!"

    Wow this series is so good. I just love the Lore and all the immortals. This is Regan's story and just as wonderful as the rest of the books. If you have not listened to all of these books you are truly missing out.

    Robert Petkoff is the absolute best male narrator to ever narrate.

    Credit Worthy? yes yes yes yes and yes!!!!
