Book Description:

An estranged mate, a mangled body and a powerful demon who calls her by name…

As a Realm Walker for the Agency, Juliana Norris tracks deadly paranormal quarry using her unique ability to see magical signatures. She excels at her job, but her friends worry about her mysterious habit of dying in the line of duty without staying dead. That's only the first of her secrets.

Most people don't know Juliana became the mate of master vampire Thomas Kendrick before he abandoned her seven years ago. Most people don't know the horrors she endured at the hands of the vampire he left in command. Most people don't know her true parentage, or why a demon on a world-threatening rampage has taken a personal interest in her…

Even as Juliana pursues the demon, it goes after all she holds dear—including Thomas, who is back to claim her for his own. But if she can't reconcile her past and learn to trust herself again, she will lose him forever.

Favorite Quotes

It chuckled. “I grow tired of playing with you. You would have caught me eventually at any rate. You’re much better than the others. Maybe it’s because you’re female. You are, aren’t you?”

After putting more distance between them, she put her Taser away and drew her sword. It left the sheath with a ring of steel. She adjusted her hand on the grip.  Nathaniel came to stand beside her, leaning his weight into her leg to let her know he was near. “You okay there, Mr. Troll?”  He opened his blazing red eyes and looked at her.  “I’ve had your blood, Juliana Norris. It tells me things.”  Apparently it told him her name, because she’d never given it.

She pointed to her badge. “I have one piece of hard- ware that you lack. It lets me get away with a lot more.”  He went to the table beside his bed, opened the drawer and pulled out a badge similar to hers.  She frowned. “Where did you get that?”  He grinned. “It’s possible I found it laying around someplace and picked it up.”  “I’m going to pretend we didn’t have this conversation, so I can feign ignorance later.”

I was given this book for an honest review.
This was a good story, but didn’t flow like I would like it too.  This story was done as a third person which I like but sometimes it confused me and had to go back and read it again.  Juliana and Thomas relationship was a letdown because there did seem to be much of a sizzle. Thomas was arrogant and older than Juliana.  Now Michael was a character I would really like to know more about.  Maybe from his point of view.  Overall it was worth reading and I will read the next one.


I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank Kathleen Collins, author of Realm Walker for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this awesome book.

In this story the author took us to a super-natural world where we meet Juliana, a realm walker, who uses her gifts to help out the mere humans. She was the mate of master vampire Thomas, who left her seven years ago but now he is back to claim her as her own. As if it wasn’t enough mess to handle, demons struck out their heads in this punch and results in more stress for our kick-ass heroine Juliana but she isn’t going to give up.
I really enjoyed the story very much. It’s full of action, which I loved and the author didn’t bore me at all. The characters were well developed and the plot was engaging which sucked me in from the very first. Juliana’s character outshone the others and I loved her confidence and carefree attitude towards some of the huge dangers that came in her path. I didn’t like Thomas’s character though because he didn’t had the charm of a vamp and he was arrogant on top of that, his character seemed a little underdeveloped. The involvement of various fictional characters within this story spiced up the read for me for the romance was too cold for my taste, would have loved it if the author would have added some steamy scenes and passion between the main characters. Overall a good read but could have been great if the potential of the plot would have been used more efficiently. I’m really excited to know what happens in the next installment though, so I would recommend this YA read to ya all. Enjoy reading.
