Publisher's Summary

The Relentless Warrior is book six in the Star-Crossed Series.

Jericho Bentley is disillusioned by life. He feels lost in a world of peace and restless in a time threatened by war. He has given up on love, forgotten how to trust others, and decided a lifetime of bachelorhood is all that remains for him.

Olivia Taylor was struggling to find her way in a human world. Now taken from the only life she's ever known and changed on a molecular level, she is more lost than ever. With her sister struggling to survive the aftereffects of one of Dmitri Terletov's experiments, Olivia sets off with Jericho to find a cure for both herself and her sister. Together, Jericho and Olivia find more than vengeance and answers; they find a deep friendship that might teach them both to trust again. Maybe even to love again. As long as they can both put the hurt of their past behind them for good.

Ehh

I didn’t like the reader of this book, his voice was very monotone and didn’t express the emotions I need from each character he portrayed. This made it hard for me to listen or even finish the book bc his voice made me tired & not excited for the story. The story however was the same as the last. Focused on Jeraco’s love life and not much on the story about the kingdom. I feel like the series went from talking about ruling the kingdom & obstacles with a side of romance, to just pure love stories. Wouldn’t recommend reading any book after the 4th one

Could have been better

Okay, so I really didn't like Octavia.... I understand if you are upset cause you did get a bad deal and you have been thrust into a world that is not believable. What I didn't like was the lack of respect, when someone helps you and keeps you safe you give respect, say thank you . She may not have known magic but she understood what kings, queen and the like are so her attitude was piss poor...the voice of Jericho had gave me no confidence in the character.... The story was a little boring but I like the series overall so I will finish.

Enjoyable

This story seemed a bit of a duplication of previous plots. It was fun to read/ listen to, but had the battle between the good team and the evil team, the girl is kidnapped right after she falls in love, some die, some live...what happens next?

Great Story!

After the first couple of books the characters evolved and became much more tolerable. I loved Avalon's story and Jericho's has been my absolute favorite so far. The only gripe I really have is the narrator's. I'm just not a fan. I do believe I will be tracking this series down to own in print.

Great addition to the series!

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW:
4.5 stars — There was so much going on in this one, and I’m still loving being back in this series. This one felt more solid than The Reluctant King, in that the writing and the progression of the romance was much smoother and realistic.

Bailey Carr’s narration is still solid for me. She conveys great emotion, solid range of voices, I’ve just ended up really enjoying her in this series. It will be interesting to see what she’ll sound like for Seraphina. As for Alex Bloch, he was pretty solid as well. Not quite as much emotion, he felt more even keel, but I guess that worked for Jericho. I was totally thrown off by his very faint accent though, as Jericho should have been just American right? I think this was Mr. Bloch’s natural accent, but I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what it was — New Zealand? Australian? Just plain British? It was so faint, I really couldn’t tell, but it did vaguely distract me, but that has a lot to do with me and the kind of listener I am. His other character voices were pretty solid as well, though not quite as much range. All in all, enjoyable, but not an immediate fave.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
4.5 stars — So nice to have more Rachel Higginson imagination to read. Confession time: I was not one of the millions of girls that fangirled all over Jericho. I loved him as a character, but I was never in love with him. So I was not one of the millions waiting for his love story. Regardless, what a beautiful love story it was. And Jericho was so much more than I remembered him being. I mean, he was always sexy and funny and sweet. But this book delved deeper into how he felt about his position and the man he’d become and what he would do for the people he loved. Being confronted with a man who actually had to do the dirty and hard things to keep his world safe was harder than I expected. I felt so much for him, and never really thought about how he would handle that. It’s not something that we think about much, even in the real world. I thought Ms. Higginson did a fabulous job of really showcasing a *warrior*.

Now onto the fangirliness. I never had desires or expectations for Jericho’s inevitable soulmate, but Olivia was spot on. She was hilarious, feisty, a bit damaged, both beautifully strong and vulnerable at the same time. And I loved how down to earth she was!! I’ve never been much of a fashion/makeup girl, so I never quite cared about all of that with the other Star-Crossed heroines, so to have one that was more like me was dream come true.

And holy toledo, the steam factor….. I…I just….wow. The pool? OMG. Seriously. There are no words.

As usual, loved the action and forward motion in the Terletov storyline. I did feel like some of that got rushed at times, and that’s where this book lost the half a star. So yeah. Loved it, but felt a bit short changed at the end there. Super excited to see how it all wraps up with Sebastian’s story….he was off for me in the book, so I can’t help but wonder what is going on with him.

So in conclusion, if you’ve loved the Star-Crossed series thus far, you will love this next installment. It had all the factors that make Rachel Higginson books fabulous, including (and my secret favourite part) the humour. ENJOY!!!
