Book Review - My Eternal Soldier by Krystal Shannan

My Eternal Soldier (Sanctuary, Texas #3)

Published 2015

213 Pages

This third installment in the series really brings together the worlds of these enchanting characters. We learn more about what led up to the battles surrounding Sanctuary, and what happened beyond the Veil. And most importantly, we learn more about how the war impacted the families of those now on the Earth side, and how their lives were torn apart... and brought back together again. 

This book is filled with action, romance, and humor -- all the things we know and love from the author! Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, and steamy romance -- some of the best scenes, yet! I really enjoyed Eira and Killian's story, both as an individual novel, and as an important addition to the series. Well written, well paced, and thoroughly spellbinding. This is a book you won't be able to put down once you start reading! 

Now Available on Amazon

Excerpt ~ My Eternal Soldier

“Shhhhh,” he whispered, tracing his fingers along the inside of my thigh.

“We’ll leave as soon as it’s dark. It will be good to fight for a cause other than my own hatred. Until then, my only goal is to take care of you and worship every inch of your gorgeous body.” He nuzzled under the hem of my shirt and pressed a kiss to my stomach.

Grabbing the edge of my ripped up shirt, I yanked it over my head and sent it sailing across the room into an empty corner. Then with a quick snap, I unlatched my black lace bra. It fell to the floor with my pants, and I kicked the pile into the same corner where my shirt had landed.

He rose to his feet, cupped my chin with his right hand, then brushed away a stiff strand of my dirty hair, and kissed me ever so gently on the lips.

It was a sweet kiss. The kind you used to see at the end of chick flicks in the early 20th century. The kind where the hero has just promised to love and cherish the heroine forever and her foot pops up as he kisses her in that picture perfect way that only those old romantic movies could pull off.

About the Author

Krystal Shannan goes to sleep every night dreaming of mythical realms with werewolves, vampires, fae, and dragons. Occasional a fabulous, completely human story slips into the mix, but powers and abilities usually crop up without fail, twisting reality into whatever her mind can conceive.

As a child, her parents encouraged her interests in Ancient Greek and Roman mythology and all things historical and magickal. As an adult the interests only grew. She is a child of Neverland and refuses to ever stop believing in fairies.

She is guilty of indulging and being a Buffy the Vampire Slayer groupie as well as an Angel fan. For those of you unfamiliar with the world of Joss Whedon, you are missing out! She also makes sure to watch as many action and adventure movies as possible. The more exciting the better. Yippee-Ki-Yay..... If you don't know the end of that phrase, then you probably don't like the same movies. 

She writes stories full of action, snark, magick, and heart-felt emotion. If you are looking for leisurely paced sweet romance, her books are probably not for you. But, for those looking for a magical ride, filled with adventure, passion, and just a hint of humor. Welcome home.
