Warrior of the Cross by T.R. Graves (The warrior Series #1)

Allison La Crosse, beginning a challenging family medicine residency, leaves the protection of her family. With the transfer, her worst nightmares come true. Her closely guarded mystical talents – those which seldom appeared before the move – unleash themselves from her confinement and reveal their presence with very little provocation.

Allison’s most terrifying power is her compulsion to cure the dying with her touch. Given her career, this gift would be valuable if she were not drawn like a magnet to the ailing person's every symptom. Some of which are fatal.

At the hospital and surrounded by life-and-death emergencies, Allison’s inability to manage her impulse turns deadly. When it does, her mentor, Brody, rescues her from her own demise. His resuscitation ignites an exciting and tempestuous bond between them.

Desperate for a cure, they join forces and embark upon a journey to uncover the origins of Allison’s lethal curse. In the midst of their adventure, Allison exposes a secret pursued by many…known by few.

Warriors of the Cross is Book One in The Warrior Series

Review: I was excited to give this a good read. It is not often that you find the medical and paranormal world melded together let alone in such a way that absolutely worked.

I for one was appreciative of it mainly due to the fact that my fiance is going through nursing school and it gave me some insight how hectic life can be.

I liked the reasoning and history between the healing gift. In fact there is even a bomb shell dropped that even I didn't see coming , which is hard because given how much I read I can pretty much see almost any plot twist thrown at me.  I actually thought the complete opposite was going to happen, but I will leave that for you to find out about as you read, can't spoil the fun after all.

My only problem was how much our heroin seemed to cry all the time. It seemed like every other page something happened to her and she was bawling like a baby. I just wanted to tell her to put on her big girl panties and deal with it. 
My question for everyone is. Clark or Brody? Who are you rooting for?

Favorite Character: The sister's.
Rating: 4.5
