Exclusive Excerpt from The Warrior by Victoria Scott!

We are coming mighty close to the release of The Warrior, the third and final book in the Dante Walker trilogy by Victoria Scott. Personally, I'm both incredibly pumped and terribly sad for the release of this book. I can't wait for more people to read it and spaz over it with, but it's also THE END, you know? But no matter what, I'll always love me some Dante Walker.

Speaking of Dante Walker...Victoria Scott sent out an exclusive excerpt from The Warrior to the V Mafia today! And I'm totally about to share it with you. Of course. You know how every book has the little letter from Dante at the beginning? The first little taste of Dante in each book that reminds you right away how much you heart him and FINALLY you're about to read more? Well, take a look the beginning letter from The Warrior!

Working for the devil turns you into something unfixable. It makes you a demon, forevermore. It teaches you to feel anger before anything else, and to fight dirty for those things you believe yours. But I don’t work for the devil anymore. I work for the good guys, even if I don’t act like one. My job now is to protect my girlfriend from my former boss, and to rescue my friend from hell. 

No, I don’t work for the devil any longer. But I am still the man he made me. I am still angry, and volatile, and dangerous. I don’t like the things he’s done, and I’m not about to sit back quietly. After all, he taught me better than that. He loved me with the kindness of a serrated blade, and fed me from a spoon dipped in terror. 

He made me into a monster.   

But I will bite the hand that fed me.  

Dante Walker

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE. So much. I mean, of course. It's DANTE. But I also feel for Dante right now. And I just think this is positively perfect. Especially the ending. "But I will bite the hand that fed me." Is it just me or is that highly fitting of both Dante and his attitude? Gah! Love.

What do you think?!?! Are you as excited as I am? Also, don't forget I'm giving away a book from the Dante Walker trilogy in the Best Series Blog Hop!

Since Victoria Scott is awesome, she's giving away a The Collector necklace and a pair of Dante Walker earrings. And the giveaway is international!

Description from Goodreads
War between heaven and hell is coming, but Dante Walker makes it look damn good.

Dante’s girlfriend, Charlie, is fated to save the world. And Aspen, the girl who feels like a sister, is an ordained soldier. In order to help both fulfill their destiny and win the war, Dante must complete liberator training at the Hive, rescue Aspen from hell, and uncover a message hidden on an ancient scroll.

Dante is built for battle, but even he can’t handle the nightmares where spiders crawl from Aspen’s eyes, or the look on Charlie’s face that foretells of devastation. To make matters worse, the enemy seizes every opportunity to break inside the Hive and cripple the liberators. But the day of reckoning is fast approaching, and to stand victorious, Dante will have to embrace something inside himself he never has before—faith.
