Midnight Warrior is a novel by Iris Johansen. I haven’t read anything by Iris Johansen in a while but I knew that I would love this book since her novels are always entertaining. They can be a little long at times but they are worth the read. From the very first page of the book I was pulled right into the story and needed to finish so I kept reading until the last page.
I was captured by Brynn’s character and fascinated by her powers of healing. Although she was not the normal healer. She could heal by her touch and take the pain away but she had to link with that person. She was a strong woman with her opinions which got her punished though she never backed down. Gage’s character was a warrior but he was not the brute that he appeared. I liked that with Brynn he was gentle even though it seemed that he was forever yelling at her.
There were several side characters within the story and I have to say that I really liked Adwen and Malik. Adwen was a character that grew from the sickly wife to a strong woman who was willing to fight. Malik was the injured solider with a sense of humor and a bit of a player but his eyes were soon only on one woman. I liked that Adwen and Malik had a chance at happiness along with the main characters.
