Eighteen-year-old Hope Wincrest calls the Outback of Australia her home away from home. She is a princess of Dralion from the planet Magio, where the two leading nations are at war. While in the Outback, Hope is warned by her warrior father–who holds the prophetic ability of forethought–that she is about to meet an enemy protector. She doesn’t expect him to be her soul-bound mate, a man she must now work with to piece together her unknown mother’s lost heritage.
Peacio’s Silas Carver follows the calling of his soul to Australia, only not all goes as planned. Discovering Hope is his mate has him demanding his release from their bond. She agrees, but only if he first helps her learn about her mother.
Hope must lay her life in Silas’s hands during a journey which takes them deep into foreign lands. Waging a battle of the heart, and of the land, can the young mated pair find their place with each other?

5 Freaking Alien Star Review:
Warrior is the second book in the Magio-Earth series, and I found this story as exciting, if not more so than the first book, Protector. It took me a chapter or two to reacquaint myself, but once I figured out who everyone was, I couldn’t stop reading.
Hope is the daughter of Alexo. . .and sister to Faith. The shock of this immediately glued me to the story. I really had to learn more! Unlike in Faith’s story, Hope was raised knowing her heritage, aware of the war between her people and the Peacians. So when her father has a premonition of her needing aid from a born enemy, she has her doubts.
Enter Silas Carver! Not only is he from Peacio, but one of their Protectors and a close cousin to Prince Davio. Hope’s attraction to him is undeniable, and him to her as well. Sadly, happily-ever-after won’t work for these two. Silas demands Hope to set him free from their mated-bond. Of course she agrees, however, unexpectedly with a heavy heart. I couldn’t believe she released him, and so early in the story! UGH! Frustration ran high, but I continued reading more. Surely the author wouldn’t end their relationship before it even had a chance to begin, right?
Right I was! Hope’s father had a vision. She would need Silas to seek out her mother’s ancestors, in order to find answers to the deadly mind-merge her sister and her mate share. Oh, boy!
The bond between Hope and Silas held strong from the very beginning and as soon as Silas returns to her, Hope mind-merges with him, just as her sister had done with her mate.
The journey to set Silas and Hope free from the deadly curse pushes them to find Hope and Faith’s grandmother even quicker. . .and each day spent with the other, only increases their need and desire to be together. . .
Warrior held my attention from start to finish. Each obstacle Hope and Silas encountered had me jumping with joy, but often screaming in frustration. What made me fall in love with Warrior, is the heart thudding romance between the two main characters.
However, Warrior isn’t just a love story, it’s so much more.
