Guest post from A WARRIOR'S WITCH author Stacey Kennedy!
Hugs go out to Adventures of The Cautionary Tale for joining in on the blog tour for A Warrior’s Witch. We’ve chatted along the way and discovered a bit about Talon, but let’s chat a little about the Master of Witches, Zia.
When I wrote The Magical Sword series, Zia always felt like the mother figure. She’s very sensible and is always the voice of reason. She seems to know what’s going on with others—even when they wish she didn’t—and for me, she always pushed for Nexi to find peace in her life.
So when I decided to write, A Warrior’s Witch, I wasn’t quite sure where the story would go and how Zia’s character would develop. I must admit as the story progressed, I fell in love with her even more than I already was. Not only was she a strong woman, had a wonderful heart, but she amused me every step of the way. Her reactions to the situations she found herself in made me laugh, and I got to see a whole nother side of Zia I didn’t know existed. She’s a feisty, sweet woman, who let her own emotions take a backside to her responsibilities.
Creating a happily ever after for Zia felt more like an obligation than a plot in the story, because she deserved it, and I enjoyed being with her every step of the way.

Decades old guilt collide with a murder, igniting a battle in a warrior’s soul to choose between love and duty…
Murder has brought Talon, Master of Guardians, as well as Zia, his witch and Master of Witches, to Chicago. The manner of death appears to be a suicide, but Talon is far from ready to close the case. To avenge the Guardian linked to his past, he agrees to take on the assignment, and find her killer.
As they dive deeper into the investigation, they find themselves entering a world where BDSM is the norm. A lifestyle that Zia is uncomfortable with and, rattled by this new development, she is more than ready to return to the Otherworld. But their investigation quickly takes an unexpected twist when they discover that they’re not only hunting a killer but also someone who is controlling supernaturals in Chicago.
Their mission not only brings danger, but also forces Talon to deal with decades old guilt that corrodes his soul. Every event that unfolds only deepens his fight and pushes him to face an ultimate choice—what is more important—his duty to the Otherworld or the witch he holds closest to his heart?
