There are several plot twists which I must not mention, but I do have to give an extra five stars to the scene where one of the characters comes out as gay, followed by the tuxedo episode. You'll know when you reach it! The scene in the river.......well, just you wait. Another five stars.
'Spirit Warriors' is an exciting adventure that is joyful and life affirming, even in the midst of tragedy. I cannot name names but the message of the book is that love goes on. Love in life, love that lasts beyond death. There were tears but I was still left with a positive feeling.
D.E.L. Connor tackles the big questions, love, sexuality, family abuse and death, so although officially a YA book 'Spirit Warriors' is also a great read for adults.
