Bitter. Broken. Brutal. Molded since childhood to be the perfect weapon, Gavriel d’Alana (also known as Death’s Shadow) has devoted himself to serving Thalia Talfayen. The life of a Noxblade is lethal and lonely, and since the princess has no need of him, he secretly believes there’s no reason for him to live—and he should seek a glorious death—but that’s before he tangles with a tiger woman who unleashes his darkest desires.
Tough. Tenacious. Trustworthy.
Magda Versai has a reputation for being unattainable—no deep attachments, only discreet amusements. If she has her way, the pride will never learn of her private heartbreak, as she accepted her curse years ago. Now, she focuses on work, which is why she’s acting as Raff’s bodyguard while secretly hunting for Slay. The search leads Mags to team up with a Noxblade so belligerent that she can’t resisting baiting him.
She’s the steel, he’s the flint, and the sparks they strike together might kindle a fire that could warm them for a lifetime, if they don’t kill each other first…
“The Ars Numina series is a fabulous series with some amazing world building supported by wonderful romances. The Shadow Warrior is no exception. I could not put this one down. I cannot wait for the next one to find out what happens next in this world. If you are looking for a shifter romance with a dominant female character, do not miss this one.” Jennifer Porter @ Romance Novel News
“I hate bingeing television shows, but clearly I have no similar qualms about books, because this is the 4th Ars Numina book I’ve read in as many days, and it is no understatement to say that they are saving my mental and emotional stability as my area has gone into shelter-in-place due to the pandemic. I will be forever grateful for Ann Aguirre.” Adrienne @ Goodreads
“I also just really liked the philosophy behind this book. The message of acceptance and forgiveness was like a balm for the soul, especially given Gavriel’s past. It made me very happy.” Brittany @ Amazon
