<— WHAT TO READ IF YOU LOVED GOLDEN DYNASTY!!! This one comes highly recommended and often, and guess what? Warprize is on sale today, PLUS it’s an entire series! 😀
Young: One of my favorite series ever is Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughn. For me, it is right up there with Tairen Soul series. …Please read Tairen Soul series, or Warprize. Both were AMAZING and the best I’ve ever read!! The world building in the stories is top notch. You won’t be sorry.
Michelle: …finished Warprize and the second book, Warsworn, already and definitely enjoyed them. The story is very emotional and has an abundance of great characters.
Amy: I can vouch for Warprize ’cause I am really, *really* liking it! No steam yet but it has a nice romantic tension going on. 😉
MichelleS: On second book in that Warprize series, Keir is NOT a jerk. 🙂 just super Alpha! Rawr!
Amy: Oh yes, ladies…Warprize!!! For me, it’s the closest thing to Golden Dynasty that I have read. Warprize IS really good. Definitely a lighter version of Golden Dynasty but so much fun.
Michelle: …it is very good and a fabulous rec for those who want that kind of read again minus the alternate universe stuff.
MichelleS: Warprize – I am really liking the series. … Maybe it’s just that secret little find? If you read it, you will fall in love with the side characters. All those warriors. And Marcus? And even that giggly-chinned cook, Anna. My kind of book.
Young: Woohoo! WarDance!
About book #1:
The daughter of a Warrior King, Lara was trained as a healer. With her father dead and her incompetent half-brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to warring Firelanders. Unable to depose her sibling or negotiate peace, Lara serves her people by healing the warriors—on both sides of the conflict—who are injured in battle.
Lara finds herself educated in her enemy’s language and customs in return for her attention and compassion. She never expects that her deeds, done in good faith, would lead to the handsome and mysterious Firelander Warlord demanding her in exchange for a cease-fire. To save her land and her people, Lara trades her freedom to become the Warprize.
