Portland book artist Neve Kelly is having weird visions—vivid daydreams of lovers on a battlefield that yank her out of reality. A couple weeks before Halloween, a confused, strangely dressed man appears in her living room. He drops a slip of paper that describes a dream much like her own before disappearing without a trace.

Will Yeats has had enough of heroics. With the peace between Ireland and its enemies restored, he plans to spend the next decade quietly writing his Irish fairy history. But suddenly he’s time traveling again. He briefly visits the home of an intriguing stranger, who appears to be American. The next time he’s drawn there, he finds her being sucked through a ghastly hole in her ceiling.

Will saves Neve by carrying her back to 1888 Ireland, where he learns that not only is she from more than a century in the future, but from a parallel world where fairies and Tuatha De Danaan heroes are no more than myth. Their dreams of ancient lovers have brought them together… but why? Dark portents surround the—portents bearing the mark of the Morrigan’s meddling—and they soon discover it’s all part of a sinister scheme to seize the throne of Ireland. And the love story from their dreams has begun to manifest in the present moment.

Will’s friends—Irish Queen Isolde and her allies—are depending on Will and Neve to connect with the past in order to save Ireland. But can anything save them from the violent end that their dreams have foreshadowed?

The last book to the Faery Rehistory books (That I know of anyway) and I feel a little lackluster towards this series. The Absinthe Earl really grabbed my attention with the characters and drew me into this world. But both The Raven Lady and The Warrior Poet left me with a meh feeling. That doesn’t quite mean they are bad books but that I think there was much more to be achieved here.

The Warrior Poet takes a different angle with modern Neve. A book artist who has strange visions and then gets pulled back into time and into the world of poet William Yeats (yes that Yeats). While I liked Neve I felt that more could have been done with the time difference. There was barely anything there that pointed out the difference.

Adding to that I felt that the plot point of them being two people reincarnated of two faery lovers not quite done well. There was the visions at the start but then not enough was done with it with regards to their romance or to build that story for me. I just didn’t quite feel it. Another thing I didn’t feel was that the Morrigan was being influenced. What now? You think THE Morrigan would take some lowly resurrected minions whisperings? Please.

Having said that I did find the time travel parts and the faery world interesting parts of the story. Also the idea that they might also be in an alternate world. I would love for that to be much more explored in the whole series.

It was an entertaining read for an afternoon, but no more than that.
