Review: "The Warrior" (Dante Walker #3) by Victoria Scott

The Warrior by Victoria Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.

Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll.

Dante is built for battle, but even he can’t handle the nightmares where spiders crawl from Aspen’s eyes, or the look on Charlie’s face that foretells of devastation. To make matters worse, the enemy seizes every opportunity to break inside the Hive and cripple the liberators. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching, and to stand victorious, Dante will have to embrace something inside himself he never has before—faith.

It took me some time to find the final book of this amazing series, but I was glad I did! If you are not familiar with this series, let me tell you that if you liked "Fire and Blood", I am sure you'll enjoy this one. First of all we have a male POV. Dante's mind is naughty and funny, yet determined and brave.

In the final story of this series Dante, Charlie and gang are prepared for the final battle which will be the final factor of who will rule Earth in the next years; Good or Evil. Aspen is still hostage of Hell and Dante must find the courage to fight for the girl he loves and for the girl he considers family. Through his eyes there are some sub-plots which I really enjouyed and I wouldn't mind to read as a novella.

Just note Annabelle and Kraven. ;) But also Max, Valery, Blue are side characters full developed with stories and hopes of their own.

Truth to be told, this is one of the most unforgettable series, which in a dark corner of my mind I'd kill to see as a movie or TV series.
Until the next novel by Victoria Scott comes out let me remember Dant'es moments and his character as one of the most enjoyable ones.
