Flora’s Mini Book Reviews… Warden (Elemental Paladins #1) by Montana Ash

Hello Avid Readers,

Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?

Montana Ash is an attending author at RARE19 in London, which is why I sought out her books. I am so glad I did and I can’t wait to meet her later this month. 🙂

So on with my thoughts about…


Warden (Elemental Paladins #1) by Montana Ash

Ryker is a paladin. An ancient knight, born to protect those precious few who hold powers over the elements. He is bound by honour, courage and loyalty. But when tragedy strikes he forsakes everything he stands for, vowing never to serve again. He opens his home to other rejected and dishonoured knights … but never his heart. That is, until a sarcastic, sword-wielding, miniature Warden barges into his life, bringing chaos and mayhem to his carefully ordered world.

Will he forgive himself for past mistakes? Or will old wounds continue to scar his future?

Max is different. She has a strange affinity to nature and finds herself constantly causing disasters wherever she goes. What’s more, strange creatures stalk her every step, their relentless pursuit driving her to the brink of exhaustion. Stumbling upon a gaggle of hot ancient knights seems too good to be true but she can’t deny they have the answers she’s looking for. Too bad their Captain is a growly, insensitive jerk who insults her every time he opens his gorgeous mouth.

Should she trust her instincts and allow herself to hope for the first time in her life? Or will her fierce independence cause her to lose the one thing she has always craved – a home?


Montana Ash is a new-to-me author and I was blown away by this book! I devoured this book; I loved her writing style, the pace she set for her story and the gripping plot-line. The characters she created were complex souls that exhibited all the traits that I crave. I love that this book made me feel so many emotions; yes, I did blubber like a baby at times but I won’t tell you how often or when. However, I also chuckled out loud too causing many an odd stare. 😉

If you’ve read any of my reviews before, you will know that I enjoy a story more when the female main character is intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and has plenty of gumption. Oh goodness me Max ticked all my boxes and then some, she also has a great sense of humour, sarkiness and an innate sense of right and wrong that I love.

Warden was a bloody good book and I was going to rate it 5 stars until the final couple of pages. Cliffhanger Alert! I never give top ratings to books with cliffhangers, and for me, this book felt like it ended mind scene. I had already bought and downloaded books 2 and 3 when buying this one as they were all on sale at 99p.

Due to the sexual scenes, colourful vocabulary and expletives throughout this story, I would recommend this book to adults who are not offended by content of this sort who love stories about kickass heroines and damaged alphas within the adult paranormal romance genre with story-lines about prejudice and fighting for what’s right

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my mini review. I hope I’ve sparked your interest.

Bye for now,
