She is surrounded by a new culture and beliefs and a barbarian that leaves her breathless.
I gave this book a 4
Romantic! Surprising! Adventurous! I simply can't say enough about this book, it was a magical trip into the past! I thought this romance was wonderful. An inviting read that makes you feel as if you have joined in the adventure. As I turned the pages I was in awe of the sights delivered upon the pages. Vaughan is an incredible storyteller, that weaves magic with her words. This was my second time reading Warprize, but it was as if it were my first time. Conan has nothing on Vaughan! I'm excited about the second book in The Chronicles of the Warlands series, Warsworn.
