Image of Midnight's Promise (Dark Warriors)

Grant’s eighth Dark Warrior book provides a thrilling and satisfying addition to her intense and constantly evolving series. Her hero is perhaps the most troubled and challenging to date, and his evolution, alongside a heroine who must fight her own battle with overwhelming darkness, is wrenching, redemptive and often profound. The climactic battle offers thrilling action but, more significantly, also carries a reminder that the love these characters share has the power to defeat the fiercest enemies and to alter the world.

Malcolm Munro has never belonged in any place or time. Alone and losing his grip on his powers, he bears the terrible scars of his centuries of battling evil, but when he encounters Evangeline Walker, he begins to remember what it is like to desire. Though Evie knows about her heritage as a Druid, she believes herself to be alone, until Malcolm strides into her life. In spite of his intimidating strength, Evie is continually drawn to the Warrior, needing his trust and his touch in equal measure. But when she gives in to the forces of darkness in order to save her brother, Evie may need Malcolm to save her from the torture of death itself. (ST. MARTIN’S, Nov., 400 pp., $7.99)
