Review: THE RELUCTANT AMAZON by Sandy James

About the book:

The last thing Rebecca Massee expects on her wedding day is to go from jilted kindergarten teacher to Amazonian Earth warrior. But when she causes an earthquake after her groom says I don’t, she discovers that not only does she possess incredible powers, she is one of four lost chosen sisters who must fight to keep humanity safe from rogue gods and demons. Luckily she has help: ruggedly handsome Scottish warrior Artair MacKay, her protector and teacher.

An immortal, Artair has trained countless warriors for more than four hundred years. He understands Rebecca’s confusion at the new world she’s been thrust into and worries she is too emotionally vulnerable, but that doesn’t stop his growing feelings for the beautiful and fearless woman.

When an evil force threatens to destroy the Amazons, Rebecca must claim her full powers—but they come at a cost. Can she sacrifice the man she loves if it means saving the world?

I was looking for an escape when I started reading this book. My husband’s surgery last week ended up being a huge ordeal and I needed a break from reality. Most books are in some way, but I was looking for something that could never, ever happen. I loved every moment of THE RELUCTANT AMAZON. There is romance, mystery, action, and tons of emotion throughout the story. Rebecca undergoes such a transformation between the day she finds out she’s an Amazon (and gets left at the altar) and the day she truly accepts her place as Earth. I adored the relationship between her and Artair. It’s wildly romantic – the sentinel and the Amazon – who cannot be together. Their love is forbidden and they both fight their attraction until they no longer can. I also loved the relationships that develop between Rebecca and the other amazons especially Megan (Fire). Their bond is strong and gives Rebecca amazing strength. The Amazons fight to keep the gods or other ancients from unleashing evil in their world. Rebecca and her sisters are called when two of the previous group of Amazons go missing and one is killed. They must work with Sparks, Fire from the last generation, to find the missing Amazons and to find out who is trying to hurt them all. I loved the twist and turns the story took and can’t wait to find out what happens next in the series.

  1. Hmmmm…I keep trying paranormals and I’m just not liking them. Although for $1.99 it might be worth a try if I weren’t on a “buy no more books until you read what you already have” binge right now!

  2. Thank you for the beautiful review! There is nothing that makes me happier than when a reader “gets” my characters and my story the way you did!! I hope your husband is doing well!!
