Book Review: Warriors of the Cross by T.R. Graves



Allison La Crosse, beginning a challenging family medicine residency, leaves the protection of her family. With the transfer, her worst nightmares come true. Her closely guarded mystical talents – those which seldom appeared before the move – unleash themselves from her confinement and reveal their presence with very little provocation.

Allison’s most terrifying power is her compulsion to cure the dying with her touch. Given her career, this gift would be valuable if she were not drawn like a magnet to the ailing person's every symptom. Some of which are fatal.

At the hospital and surrounded by life-and-death emergencies, Allison’s inability to manage her impulse turns deadly. When it does, her mentor, Brody, rescues her from her own demise. His resuscitation ignites an exciting and tempestuous bond between them.

Desperate for a cure, they join forces and embark upon a journey to uncover the origins of Allison’s lethal curse. In the midst of their adventure, Allison exposes a secret pursued by many…known by few.

Warriors of the Cross is Book One in The Warrior Series. 

Warriors of the Cross has a little something for everyone.  There's romance, mystery, suspense, supernatural, and a bit of Christian theology thrown in for good measure.  The story flows fairly smoothly, though there are areas where it seems to drag some; but not enough for me to want to stop reading.

The characters were mostly written well.  It was easy to see Allison mature as she went through all the strange incidents happening to her.  I would have preferred Clark and Brody to be more well-rounded, I think maybe in trying to keep the mystery around them, they fell a little flat at times.  However, I adored the sisters and wished they would have been around more!

The suspense is kept drawn tight throughout the storyline, I had to keep reading because I needed to know where Allison got her gifts and how she was going to fight off the evil!  Overall, I really enjoyed the book and will be looking forward to the next two books in the series.
