The Warrior (Dante Walker #3) by Victoria Scott

The Warrior (Dante Walker #3)
by Victoria Scott
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Release Date: May 6th 2014
Rate: Love it (4,5 stars)

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.

I have to confess that it took me a while to decide to read this series. I don't know why I haven't read it earlier, but after seeing so much Dante love over the internet I had to give it a try. And the only thing I regret is not reading this series sooner.

Since this is a third book and there might be some readers out there like me, that haven't read the series or are starting them, I'll keep my review spoiler-free. So I'll tell you pretty much what the synopsis tells you: The Warrior continues where The Liberator last left off. Aspen's stuck in hell, Charlie's fate is to save to world (no pressure there or anything) and a big badass and probably bloody war between heaven and hell is coming, but if you have met Dante before this part of the story might even appeal you more if it's from his point of view.

The Warrior is the perfect finale for a series such as the Dante Walker. It has a promising and entertaining plot filled with an epic battle and lots of danger, and the author also includes romance and humor with an easiness that characterizes every single Dante Walker book. 

I highly think that the strong point of this series is Dante and once again we have the opportunity to see his arrogance, sarcasm and bad boy attitude that makes readers laugh so hard even in the strangest situations. In this book, I found myself waiting for those moments. However, that badass attitude is also filled with some insecurities: he simply feels unworthy of redemption. Even he shows some emotions! I think Dante Walker's the perfect character for every single YA female reader. And he proves himself in The Warrior that's worthy of everything!

It's nice to read about the characters you have grown fond off during the series and even to meet new ones. Victoria Scott's writing style is all over the pages of The Warrior and it's definitely poured as a incredible and enjoyable humor even in the worst case scenarios as it is the "epic battle" I talked about before. 

Overall, The Warrior is the perfect finale for the series and definitely a must read book. With a memorable love story and definitely an epic battle between good and evil, the Dante Walker's series are now one of my favorite series and I can only tell you to give it a try!
