The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and walked into self-imposed exile. Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again. As a Dream-Hunter, Delphine has spent eternity protecting mankind from the predators who prey on our unconscious state. But now that her allies have been turned, she knows in order to survive, the Dream-Hunters need a new leader. Someone who can train them to fight their new enemies. Cratus is her only hope. But she is a bitter reminder of why he chose to lay down his arms.

Time is running out and if she can't win him to her cause, mankind will be slaughtered and the world we know will soon cease to exist.

“It’s a new world, brother. And we, the downtrodden, are taking it back.”

Dream Warrior continues the momentum from the previous book, One Silent Night, and further propels our characters to war. The main character is the Titan, Cratus. He has been cast out of Olympus for defying Zeus’ order to kill a baby thousands of years ago, and now lives on Earth as a human. Despite losing his godhood, Cratus has been punished by the gods, making him extremely bitter and suicidal. Delphine is a Dream-Hunter who is seeking a general to lead their army now that dark forces have united against them.

I really enjoyed this novel, because it brought the other characters into the story of the impending battle while continuing to showcase characters like Acheron and Nick. After the novel Acheron, I was worried that the character would fade into the background, but so far that hasn’t been the case. He’s more involved than ever. Another character I loved seeing again was Zarek. He hasn’t been around since he received his HEA novel, and he added some much-needed humor into the story. I loved this, as he previously was considered to be the scariest of all the Dark-Hunters. I also loved Delphine making an appearance, as she is tied to a character from a previous novel. The way that Kenyon connects her characters really makes this world seem believable.

Another aspect of the novel I loved was getting to know the new villains. Stryker has been the main villain up until now, so it was nice coming across some villains that are even more horrible than him. Especially since Stryker became even more dimensional in his book. These villains seem to be equal to the task of making this a battle to remember. I can’t wait to see what they plan to do next, and how our heroes will overcome their schemes. Having villains readers don’t know much about really ups the ante of the impending war, and provides a feeling of uncertainty. I’m sixteen books into the series, and I haven’t gotten bored yet. If you haven’t checked this one out, you really should jump on the bandwagon.
