THE WARRIOR Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway


I can’t believe that THE WARRIOR released this week and that this amazing series has come to an end. My finished copy downloaded but I’m not quite ready to say goodbye. Though after reading the excerpt I have to share below I might just be tempted enough. Ohhhh Dante you always make me grin.

Today is also the last stop on THE WARRIOR Blog Tour. Which means there’s just one day left to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a signed set of all the books in the series. I want them, I want them!

There are some fab reviews at many of the other stops on the tour that are totally worth checking out if you want to know what a few bloggers think about this series ending book. And there’s also another exclusive excerpt. So if your copy hasn’t yet arrived and you just can’t wait, it’s the perfect bite. Direct links to all the stops are included at the bottom of the post.

If you haven’t yet met Dante, now’s the perfect time. You won’t have to wait the months and months between each book’s release. He’s available to devour all at once – every last modest, humble, innocent *cough* bit of him.

Fried chicken? Really Dante?

Anyway… as you might have guessed I’m a huge fan of this series and of the author. But if for some reason you haven’t yet met either the awesome author or her amazing books, there’s some information about her and each of the books in this series below.

If you love books with personality, a bit of an edge, a character who will make you grin, roll your eyes, and swoon once or twice, then the Dante Walker series is an absolute must.

About The Warrior

The Warrior


Series: Dante Walker #3
Release date: May 6th
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pages: 352
Formats: Paperback, eBook


War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.

Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll.

Dante is built for battle, but even he can’t handle the nightmares where spiders crawl from Aspen’s eyes, or the look on Charlie’s face that foretells of devastation. To make matters worse, the enemy seizes every opportunity to break inside the Hive and cripple the liberators. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching, and to stand victorious, Dante will have to embrace something inside himself he never has before—faith.



The Excerpt

I’m frozen like an icicle in the ninth ring of hell.

“Who was that?” Kraven asks in a wary tone.

“A collector.” I silently curse myself for not opening my mind to sense another cuff. Because once I realized who it was, I sensed that cuff with screaming clarity. It was a careless mistake.

Turning around, I spot someone I don’t know standing near the girls. My legs move before my brain even processes what I’m doing. Then I’m standing between New Guy and Charlie. I grab the guy by his plaid shirt and shuffle him back and into a wall. “Who are you?”

“Whoa, calm down, steroids,” he says in a slight British accent. “Name’s Paine, and I’m going to give you some if you don’t ease up on the death grip, capiche?”

His words hint at smooth confidence, but he speaks in a submissive voice. It’s the voice of someone desperate to please others.

I barely recognize it.

Kraven speaks up. “He’s one of us, Dante.”

Paine nods at his ankle where I imagine a gold cuff must lie hidden.

“A liberator?” I ask. Paine grins sheepishly, and I let go of his shirt. “Don’t be sneaking up on us like that again or you’ll be taking a dirt nap.”

“Sorry,” he says, and seems to mean it. He offers his hand. It’s wide and calloused and I respect that it appears he’s done real work in his short life. I shake it, feeling like an arse.

The guy looks to be in his early twenties and has a shaved head, though I can still spot the reddish-blond color he’s trying to hide. Paine’s eyes are set a bit too far apart, and he has long, chick-like lashes. His forehead protrudes, giving him a slight caveman appearance, and his body is that of a wrestler’s, like he’s itching to take someone to the mat. Overall, Paine kind of looks like a model, someone girls would dig because he’s strangely attractive. That’s not me. I’m hot like a bucket of fried chicken, baby.

Other Books in the Series

The Collector

Title: THE COLLECTOR (Dante Walker #1)

Release date: April 2, 2013
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pages: 400
Formats: Paperback, eBook


He makes good girls…bad.

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.

Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried.



The LiberatorTitle: THE LIBERATOR (Dante Walker #2)

Release date: August 27, 2013
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pages: 352
Formats: Paperback, eBook


Bad boy, meet bad girl.

Dante has a shiny new cuff wrapped around his ankle, and he doesn’t like that mess one bit. His new accessory comes straight from Big Guy himself and marks the former demon as a liberator. Despite his gritty past and bad boy ways, Dante Walker has been granted a second chance.

When Dante is given his first mission as a liberator to save the soul of seventeen-year-old Aspen, he knows he’s got this. But Aspen reminds him of the rebellious life he used to live and is making it difficult to resist sinful temptations. Though Dante is committed to living clean for his girlfriend Charlie, this dude’s been a playboy for far too long…and old demons die hard.

With Charlie becoming the girl she was never able to be pre-makeover and Aspen showing him how delicious it feels to embrace his inner beast, Dante will have to go somewhere he never thought he’d return to in order to accomplish the impossible: save the girl he’s been assigned to, and keep the girl he loves.
