Former Junior Miss Kentucky Emerson Shaw won pageants using martial arts as her talent and Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” as her guide, but a painful secret leads her to the University of York, and puts her in the path of tattooed and pierced bad boy, Michael Nightingale.
Michael is a Traveller, part of an ancient line of mercenary gypsies who protect the world from vicious monsters called the Moktar. When Emerson gets attacked, she has no choice but accept Michael’s offer of protection or face certain death.

Traveller society, full of outdated rules and ridiculous superstitions, isn’t a good fit for the headstrong Emerson. Traveller women aren’t allowed to fight. Traveller women aren’t allowed to win. Traveller women aren’t allowed to leave. But Emerson will do what she must, even if it means losing the one person who matters most.

Note: This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

NA ReviewMy Thoughts

Traveller is a new adult paranormal romance by Abigail Drake. (It is marked on goodreads as adult, but the main character is college aged, and the overall story had a new adult vibe, in my opinion.) Traveler has everything a good paranormal romance should have in my book. Interesting creatures/powers, a secret society is always a plus, a mysterious adventure, and great characters. I really enjoyed this one.

Emerson and Michael are the main characters. I liked both of them a lot. Emerson has a dry sense of humor that had me snickering throughout the whole story, and Michael is pretty swoon worthy. There are some weird quirks throughout that left me a bit puzzled, like the whole part of the society where women were not allowed to leave. I still don’t get that one.

As much as I loved Emerson’s sense of humor, her reactions to some of the situations she found herself in seemed underwhelming to me. I liked that she took things as they came at her and didn’t loose her cool, but some of the things warranted a little ruffling of the feathers in my book. And she was still just cool as a cucumber. On one hand, I admired her ability to remain calm throughout almost anything (since that is a skill I certainly do not possess.) but on the other hand it made her seem a bit robotic at times. However, that was the only disconnect I felt with Emerson. She is a kick ass lady and I really want her to be on my side. She keeps up with the action in Traveller so well, and she can handle anything that is thrown at her.

Traveller is a really fun ride of a read. I wanted the ending to stretch out a little more, but there was so much going on and the pace was only getting faster and faster towards the end, it was all I could do to keep up. There will even be some unexpected twists, for even the best of the twist guessers out there!

Bottom line: Traveller is a solid paranormal romance read with a good chunk of action and adventure in the mix.
