Review: Willing Sacrifice by Shannon K. Butcher (The Sentinel Wars, Book 8)

Synopsis: Theronai warrior Torr has never forgotten Grace, the human who stole his heart and nearly gave her life to save his. So when he is summoned to the aid of Brenya, the powerful woman who healed Grace, he is devastated to find that Grace’s cure has left her mind devoid of any memory of Torr or their love. However, despite not knowing who he is, Grace is inexplicably drawn to the dark warrior. As they team up to stop the invasion that threatens the people Grace now considers family, her memories slowly start resurfacing. But sometimes the past is best forgotten—a lesson that Torr may learn too late. (from the back of the book)

Review: It was a relief to finally read about Grace and Torr. Butcher gave us their beginning in a previous book (I can't remember which one), but only it bits and pieces (like she does). I was glad to see a book dedicated to them. It was the first of her stories that took place on another planet - not Earth - and that made it a unique story. Grace, being human, was a fascinating character, with depth and flaws and purpose. And Torr - his love for her felt plausible. Grace isn't a Theronai, meaning she shouldn't be able to bond with Torr. How that is made possible open more questions that it answeres, and As with all Butcher's books in the series, I highly recommend. But they are better read in order....
