I went in expecting a high fantasy romance with some magic and epic world building but aside from a little world building this was more of a romance set in a vague medieval world if that makes any sense.

The beauty of the book is simply in the storytelling and Vaughan is it’s most gifted sage. Fearsome and a true warrior, he was one very sexy Warlord. I did love Kier and how protective he was of Lara. I enjoyed this book, it’s very much a romance set in a fantasy world, if you like CL Wilson’s o you will like this.

Healing the wounded, picking off willow bark fr Someone recommended this book on an “If you liked Jacqueline Carey ‘s Kushiel’s Dart Books by Elizabeth Vaughan.
I adore stories about falling in love after arranged marriages. A story of a tender love, enriching characters, and a plot that thickens with each page!! She is smart, constantly thinking and problem solving, and is repeatedly winning chroniclfs over with her charm and sharp mind. As you read them, I hope the magic starts to work between my words and your imagination.
Not that kind of story.

Would it really kill these fantasy authors to end their story with an epic climax filled with sword fights and castle raids and last-stand speeches? It was a solid first novel of a series and I am looking forward to continue reading this series. Xylara knows must trade the life she has always known for the well-being of her people, and so she becomes He was strong, didn’t hesitant to make his authority known, but was gentle when it came to Lara.

There is that sensible core and slow building relationship between the main characters, a slew of fabulous secondary characters and plenty of outside drama without adding your own that I love so much and always look for in this genre. Like many mass market romance paperbacks, the conflicts in Warprize were driven by misunderstandings and irrationally evil, jealous assholes. There is an absolute equality between men and women, they are all warriors. She’s not a warrior princess.
The heroine Xylara Lara AKA Warprize is a wonderful blend of sass with a touching vulnerability that makes her born to be a strong yet empathetic Healer. If Xyian wishes peace, he demands tribute in the form of Xylara.
Warprize (Chronicles of the Warlands, #1) by Elizabeth Vaughan
The only pseudo similarity warlannds the Kushiel series is that the main character, Lara, becomes the sex slave tribute to an invading Warlord–and even that is a bit of a stretch. What really makes this book work is the Warlord’s culture and his desire to merge with the Warprize’s very different culture.
I’ll be reading the followups. There is another book in the series, but Keir and Lara aren’t main characters, and I’ve struggled to commit to it with the same enthusiasm as with the first three books. I fell pretty hard in love with two of the side characters and though it’s not explicitly stated these two are absolutely gay! I utterly enjoyed the plot and world-building of this story.
