Night Warrior by Jordan J. Scavone is a great story that is skillfully written for fans of fantasy. Seventeen-year-old Viranda’s home is hit by lightning during a thunderstorm. When she awakens from the shock, and still groggy, she finds a strange man settled on her bed. Cillian Balor claims to be the Night Warrior, a character from Viranda’s novel. While Cillian adores her as the Goddess of Fate from his world, Viranda begins to worry as other characters from the book start materializing. Her greatest fear is that vicious characters like Finn Razorclaw, a werewolf who is Cillian’s nemesis, begin to materialize as well. With the help of Bee, her best friend, and a gnome called Mo, can Viranda uncover the mystery of Cillian’s existence and stop a dangerous and imagined world from spilling over into the physical.

Jordan J. Scavone has created an imaginative tale that is filled with interesting characters and surprises for readers. I love reading about bad characters. I can imagine what fun it is to write about deadly creatures. But imagining that the world of our imagination with its villains suddenly becomes our reality is a powerful premise for this book. The author plunges readers into two worlds — the fictional world of the protagonist’s fantasy book and the world she inhabits. What makes the story even more fascinating is the link between these two worlds. Night Warrior is written in beautiful prose, punctuated by well-crafted dialogues, and powered with action. It is an engaging and entertaining read.
