I’ve read a few of Bekah Clark’s novels, like The Vulture in Fall (The Rise of the Hawk # 4), and enjoyed them all. I saw The Healer and the Warrior on my Amazon recommendations and added it to my TBR list. Here’s my review!
Synopsis (from the author):
Zianya’s been the village healer since her mother died. Trouble is, the people of her village live in fear of her and claim her red hair makes her a witch. When Torric is brought to her injured, she saves his life and finds herself kidnapped for her troubles. But Torric’s reasons are noble. His king is dying and Zianya is the only one who can save him. During their journey, she learns about her family’s origins. She also learns to love this powerful warrior who would do anything to protect her.
What I liked about The Healer and the Warrior:
I enjoyed the characters and the story. The romance was constant and a little predictable, but it kept the story moving along. Zianya and Torric were likable characters, and the supporting cast added nicely to the story. Overall, it was a fun read.
What I didn’t like about The Healer and the Warrior:
My biggest complaint about The Healer and the Warrior was a strange disconnect between the king’s illness (the reason Zianya was kidnapped) and the urgency to get Zianya to him. My only other complaint was the fantasy aspect was almost an afterthought to the romance.
Overall impression of The Healer and the Warrior:
The Healer and the Warrior was a fun read. Good characters, tons of romance, and some interesting side stories made the book entertaining. Try this one if you like romance with some fantasy as the backdrop!
