I’m not going to give spoilers to my own review of this book, but let me just say one thing: wow.
Winter’s Awakening (Warlords of Empyrea Book 2) by Georgia Lyn Hunter released in September in the Fantasy, urban Fantasy genre.
Dark warlord Sebris will sacrifice anything to save his angelic dominion of Dregarus, even shed his own blood. Snatching the foretold mortal from her world is nothing—as long as she can find the missing artifact their realm desperately needs to survive. He expects a mere pawn, not a fragile human woman who confuses and tempts him, stirring in him a desire that is as dangerous as it’s deadly.
After a freak accident lands florist Brenna Graham in a coma, she awakens to find herself in another world and in the care of a cold, ruthless immortal. The Darkrean leader both draws and terrifies her. Still, she’s furious over the abduction she unwittingly agreed to. But the longer she’s with him, the more she discovers an unexpected, tender side to the icy warlord. As barriers shatter and rigid laws are broken, an unabiding passion consumes them.
Except, time is not on their side in the dying, war-ridden world. But for a chance at a future and an ever-lasting love, they must fight for survival. When unseen enemies target Brenna, their bond is brutally tested. Sebris vows to bring down dominions to save the woman who became his heart…
Let’s say you love a series. A lot. That series, no matters the genre or setting, becomes a little world by itself. Now, let’s say the series’s author opens up a door and gives you the chance to expand that little universe. Wouldn’t that be a great gift? Well, that what happens with this new series by Georgia. I loved the Guardians, a whole lot (with Aethan, an Empyrean, shamelessly being my all-time favorite). Well, with this new series I got the chance to open that world, know more about the cosmology that was partially behind the Guardians. I absolutely love how Georgia built Dregarus, the dichotomy between the Dregarus warriors and the Empyreans. Let’s get more specific about this book. Few authors manage a deep point of view like Georgia, and that’s something you’ll hear me saying for all of her stories. She does it again here, so you get to live the story as opposite as reading it. Which, sometimes, will not be pleasant at all. But bear with her and trust her to guide you to the (happy) end of it. Let’s get to the people in the story. Sebris takes control to a whole ‘nother level. He’s so used to chain up any emotion I don’t actually think he realized life could be any different. Enter Brenna, and the cracking of said control. How he resisted to that cracking was, honestly, endearing to the point of making me go “awwww, you poor warrior, you’re so done”. I liked Brenna. She was smart enough to freak out at the beginning, and slowly getting into her own responsibility. Also, one thing I completely loved about her, is that she decided to fight not for Sebris, but for the cause itself, for the people involved, and because it was simply right. A last word if you decide to pick up this series (please, do. Thank me later.), and are new to Georgia’s stories. I read this book after reading the Guardians, but before Darkness Undone. If you are where I was, with a strong Guardians background, you’ll be fine without reading Darkness Undone first. You will not feel lost. But if you are new to all, then maybe start from Darkness Undone. Of course, for me this is a
About the Author
Georgia Lyn Hunter loves to create characters who’ll take you to the far and beyond to unforgettable adventures, steamy encounters and heart-stopping love stories…
She grew up in the sultry climate of South Africa and currently lives in the Middle East with her family. An avid reader from a young age, she devoured every book she got her hands on.

What is the series Warlords of Empyrea about?
You seriously put me on the spot, asking me about the series, Vivi.
In my head, I know what it’s all about, and as I write each book. Apparently, I like living precariously with only my wits to get me out of dangerous situations like when I write myself into a corner—LOL.
But it’s been both a challenge and fun working on this series.
I don’t want to say too much. But basically, the Warlords of Empyrea is about a group of brutal warlords—angel-like beings—who hunt for the missing, mystical Stone of Light. The magical artifact is desperately needed back in their dying world since there’s been no destined mating which guarantees an offspring. Their numbers dwindle with civil wars, and only the blessing of the missing artifact can imbue its magic to couples for a babe to be born…
