Paranormal Romance Review: Kato by D.B. Reynolds

Kato by D.B. Reynolds (Stone Warriors #2)


Egalley courtesy of ImaJinn Books

Synopsis from Goodreads
It was a time when gods walked the earth, when armies fought not for bits of land, but for the very existence of humanity. On such a battlefield, five formidable warriors stood against an evil greater than any the earth had ever seen. But evil is not an honorable foe. Betrayed by someone they trusted, the warriors were cursed, one by one, tossed into the maelstrom of time, imprisoned in stone, their freedom resting on nearly impossible conditions. Until...

Kato Amadi...born of darkest sorcery, unstoppable on the battlefield, his magic is as deadly as his blade. But not even magic could save him from vicious betrayal. Trapped for millennia in darkness and silence, he is freed at last, only to find himself in the middle of a battle against the very beasts of hell he was created to destroy.

Grace Van Allen is a scholar of ancient languages who toils in the dim recesses of a museum basement with only a beautiful stone warrior to keep her company. But when Grace calls upon her silent warrior to help her translate an obscure new language, she breaks the ancient curse holding him prisoner...and frees three deadly demons to rampage through her city.

Tracking demons is what Kato was born to do, but he’ll need Grace’s help. And when they discover that Kato’s enemy is still alive and still plotting against him, their hunt takes a dangerous turn, one that might just prove fatal for both of them...

 I think I'm jinxed with this series, peeps. I adore D.B.'s Vampires in America series, but I can not buy into romantic lines in Stone Warriors. Love the overall plot, but not the instalove. I far prefer slow burn attraction, but I totally understand that the format of this series dictates otherwise.

Saying all that, I loved Kato and Grace. They were interesting, and layered. Grace kept pulling rabbits out of the hat when I least expected it, and Kato knew far more than you could have expected from his "illiteracy" issues.

And can I reiterate how much I love Nick? I can not wait for his love story, guys. *grinning* The villain is kinda cartoonish though, don't you think?

Overall, a sweet read. Tons of cool magic, kickass heroines and flashy fighting. I'm going to just roll my eyes at the love story, and keep reading.

Ну вот что-то никак не везет мне с этой серией, дамы и господа! Обожаю серию Вампиры в Америке от Д.Б., а вот любовная линия в Каменных Воинах меня только раздражает. Я вообще не фанат инсталюбви, но конечно понимаю, что формат серии ее к сожалению диктует. Дайте мне пожалуйста медленное нарастание напряжения и влечения друг другу, и я проглочу их с восторгом. Но, увы! Не здесь.


Сами главные герои мне очень понравились. Грэйс все удивляла меня скрытыми талантами и я постоянно меняла свое мнение о ней. Като был не настолько прост как он себя представлял, особенно с его смущением от собственного неумения читать и писать.

И можно я повторю опять как же я люблю Ника? Жду- не дождусь его истории! *смеясь* И кстати, никому больше не показалось, что злодей был какой -то мультяшный здесь, что ему не хватало апломба?

А в общем, милая история. Куча классной магии, сильные волевые героини и яркие боевые сцены. Я перестану обращать внимание на инсталюбовь в будущем потому как общая сюжетная линия мне очень интересна. Буду читать дальше.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
