    I fell in love with Melissa Mayhue about two years ago when I was on what I like to refer to as 'the great Fae search'. Coming off Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series I was in a frenzy looking for more Fae, more Scottish hunks, and more time travel. Mayhue's Daughter's of the Glen series had everything I was looking for a more. Her writing style can be described as nothing less than magical, so when I saw an opportunity to check out her e-book exclusive Warrior's Last Gift I *squeed* with joy I fell in love with Melissa Mayhue about two years ago when I was on what I like to refer to as 'the great Fae search'.

Warrior's Last Gift was a bit different than previous entries in the series. The plot is driven by Norse mythology rather than the Fae, but it still held that 'magic' spark. It's a story filled with pride, regrets, grief, and ultimately a well deserved second chance of love. It was just the thing to stir my appetite for the next full length installment of the Daughter's of Glenn spinoff series; Warrior Reborn

    Not bad but not as good as others in the series. Too short to be truly enjoyable and the "hero" was a jerk for most of it. Not bad but not as good as others in the series. Too short to be truly enjoyable and the "hero" was a jerk for most of it.

    3.5-4 stars It's a short novella, but it's packed with emotion. This is the story that we never knew until this "short" - the story that was hinted at, but never really told... about Jeanne, the kitchen maid and Eric, the captain of the guard.

This is the story that we never knew until this "short" - the story that was hinted at, but never really told... about Jeanne, the kitchen maid and Eric, the captain of the guard. There were hints that Jeanne and Eric had been intimate, but Jeanne married Eymer - something never quite explained. This story explains it. In book 1, we know that Eymer was killed accompanying Danielle to free Malcolm from his evil half-brother and his evil magic. Now we learn even more heartbreak about how his death affected Jeanne. Without having to get into spoilers, essentially, Eymer did Jeanne a great honor and service; his only last wish was to be buried in the way of his Viking ancestors. That burial requires a journey to the ocean, to set what's left of Eymer on a small Viking ship, light it up with fire, and let it sail towards Valhalla. In this way, Eymer's soul can be free and go to Valhalla to join other Viking warriors who died honorable deaths in battle. But Eymer insists that Jeanne be accompanied and protected by Eric. Neither knows why, and each is still harboring hurt and secrets. Eric doesn't know why Jeanne rejected him and suddenly married Eymer; as a typical man, he only allowed his pride and feelings to be hurt, almost beyond repair, thinking that Jeanne preferred Eymer to him. During the journey, they realize that Eymer's last gift was to give them both this time together - to finally unburden the secrets, the hurt, the loss, and the pain... to rediscover one another.

    Although this is a short novella, its a great read. I like the idea behind the story of always having a second chance. I also love the story and history between the two characters. The men of this clan are nothing but honourable and its proven by Eymer’s offer and his last wish. The story was a great romantic read that lets us unravel the history between the two characters and fall in love with them multiple times. The adventure that happens in the novella is also very interesting as well as the Although this is a short novella, its a great read.

The adventure that happens in the novella is also very interesting as well as the characters that they meet along the way. Warrior’s Last Gift gave me the insight I wanted into a character i really enjoyed in Warrior’s redemption, but keeps the series moving forward! Good: Jeanne—Stubborn, but determined, and thankful for what she was given in life. Eric—A man of his time, and fills the mould of the male characters in Mayhue’s series that are stubborn, pig-headed, and believe that the women of their lives deserve better. Yet…he makes me sigh. Bad: There were some moments that were slow and I felt like both main characters needed to remove their heads from their butts. Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): Overall the story was enjoyable and gives me more hope for the series than the first book. It was easy to follow and had a cute story line with some mythology and adventure mixed in. I could relate to both characters and really enjoyed seeing their lives and history unfold. Overall I was left with a smile on my face.

However, when I was browsing Edelweiss not long ago, I saw that she had a second series out, again with Highlanders and I was all over it. Warrior’s Last Gift is the bridging book between the first and second books in the series, and while short (only about 70 pages), I felt that she was able to develop the characters into people I would like to get to know more of and hopefully they will appear in later books (pretty please!) As with all books there was some stuff that I really enjoyed and others that I didn’t. I liked how you could tell that the author had done her research in various Norse traditions – it was reflected in the substance. However, at the same time, there was also a common romance trope that I’m not a fan of (involving babies), which was kind of disappointing. I can see why it was in there, but I don’t know, it just felt a bit too cliched’ I’m really looking forward to reading the other books in this series, especially with the Norse mythology that is featured in them, as well as the time travel. I would give Warrior’s Last Gift 3.5 stars for being a short cute read and I am looking forward to reading more.

    Even though I love everything by Melissa Mayhue, I was dead set against reading this novella. Two dollars for seventy-five pages is outrageous. But then I bought Warrior Untamed and realized I had no idea who either of the people mentioned on the back cover were (I was expecting a story about Patrick), so obviously I knew I had to read the little novella in order to meet one or both of the characters.

    Melissa totally packed a punch of emotions in this novella. The characters were so believable you felt as if you were right there along with them on their journey. It amazes me that the two of them even made it through alive :0) From loosing half their supplies, to the cliff dangling,and the little boat breaking, truly a test in their well hidden feeling for each other. Yet in the it seems Eymer knew best!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this heart warming romance. Eric and Jeanne both as stubborn as each other, it finally takes the dying wish of another to finally bring them together. Gave four stars only because it was a short story.
