Fighting the battle in his own heart, War must find peace before he can find love.

War destroyed an entire tribe of innocent people when he was human, all because his best friend lied to him. His guilt brings him a destiny he never planned. As the Red Horseman, War spends the centuries creating battles and wars between countries to restore balance in the world. While he accepts the job to atone for his sins, he wishes he didn’t cause men to kill each other. War lives a solitary life, without hope of ever finding forgiveness.

From the mountains of Afghanistan to the plains of Kansas, and to the steppes of Mongolia, Russell Heinz searches for peace. He’s battling survivor’s guilt after having two members of his army unit die within feet of him. His own mind shuts down, and Russell spends time in a mental ward, dreaming of a man with blood-red hair and all-black eyes. Unsure if the man is real or just a figment of his wounded mind, Russell heads to Mongolia, looking for forgiveness of his own.

Separately, Russell and War fight their own personal demons. Together, they find peace in a love tested by the fires of battle.

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released under the same title. It has been re-edited for re-release with Pride Publishing.

My View:

War was another good addition to this universe. It was another slow and steady journey from guilt to forgiveness and redemption. This story was a good look into how healing another can often help us find the healing we need in ourselves.

I liked both War and Russell as individuals and as a couple. Both men were broken and in need of the other to heal. Their relationship started off slowly and could have turned into a codependent mess but it didn’t. These men have what was needed to the other but in a way the healed instead of enabling. I could feel the attraction and lust and I could feel it turn to more. I did feel like there were some relationship jumps that needed more explanation but I just went with the fated mates vibe the author had set up.

I am so I need of Death’s book! His character keeps evolving and he continues to amaze, humor, and baffle me. His secrets are vast and I need to know them all! I also hope Lam gets his own story. I need more!!!
