Spirit Warriors Tour and Review

Series- Spirit Warriors Book # 2
By- D.E.L. Connor
Genre- YA Fantasy
Expected Publication Date- July 21st
Published By- Booktrope Publishing

“One of us would finally end what had been started by the machayiwiw so many years ago. I would have to kill him. It was just that simple. I never thought I would want to kill anybody or anything, but maybe I never had anything worth killing for before.”
-Emmeline Rima Belrose, The Scarring (Spirit Warriors, Book 2)
In the majestic beauty of a Montana summer, Emme and her friends celebrate her near-drowning survival and their defeat of the powerful evil spirit, the machayiwiw. But even as they rejoice, things are amiss. Emme watches helplessly as her family divides, and her friends struggle to hold their relationship together. Worse yet, the love-of-her life, Charlie, announces that he will move back to the reservation, without Emme. Different nightmares take over and Emme realizes she must fight and kill—or watch those she loves be killed. Friends from the reservation reach out to Emme and show her what evil can steal from her. Emme believes that evil can never break her bond with the Spirit Warriors or the love she shares with Charlie. Or can it?


 While this book can be read as a stand alone, I do suggest reading book 1 first. I really liked that this book did reference the events from book one so I wasn't lost.  It was a very quick read and an enjoyable one. But it made me wish I had read book 1 first.  The characters are relatable and they deal with things that a lot of teens deal with.  This book left me wondering what is going to happen next.  I for one can't wait to read book 3 and having read this one I plan on reading all three again when book 3 comes out.

Title-The Concealing (Spirit Warriors #1)
By- D.E.L. Connor
Release Date: November 24, 2013
Length: 191 pages
Publisher: Booktrope

Sixteen-year-old Emme Belrose has it all: four best friends, a horse of her own, a hidden tepee hangout, and a blossoming romance with tall and handsome Charlie. These friends also have a secret. They can move their spirits into animal bodies: an osprey, a mustang, a grizzly, a mountain lion and a coyote.
But when Charlie, who has a gift for seeing the future, has a vision of Emme drowning in the icy Yellowstone River, the Spirit Warriors must train their animal bodies to kill an enemy they know is coming… but know nothing about. Suspenseful, romantic, and awash in Native American magic, Spirit Warriors captures the tragic enchantment of the American West—and confirms the power of friendship.
