Description

It is said that when war threatens the world, one individual will be selected by prophecy to lead the Shadow Warriors out of the Land of Mist and reclaim the freedom that has been stolen.

Shanti has grown up under the constant threat of war. Since she helped her people defeat a raiding party by using a special power, she's been a hunted woman. Carrying rare abilities and an uncanny fighting aptitude, Shanti is the only hope of salvation for her people. The problem is, she doesn't believe in her own divinity, and when she flounders, she nearly fails in the duty hanging so heavy on her shoulders.

It seems like any other day when Sanders and his band of misfit boys find a foreign woman clinging to life in the wastelands. Oblivious to the weapon they now have in their possession, they are content to harbor the mysterious woman until she is well enough to continue her journey. But when the war spreads its arms and lands on her borrowed doorstep, Shanti has no choice but to reveal her secrets, plunging her saviors into danger. If they band with her, they will face certain death. But to trade her to Xandre, the warlord desperate to add her to his war machine, would be to give up their entire way of life.

War is coming. The only question is this: Which side do you choose?

Good read

It was better than I expected, I was a little skeptical when I bought this book, because i was not familiar with this author. But I'm really happy I picked the series to read.

Writing is a bit rough but story is engaging

This is the first book in the Warrior Chronicles by Breene. There are six books in this series and all have been released. This was an okay book. Despite some rough writing I ended up engaged and interested in the story by the end. This is one of those books that I know is fairly poorly written but, being that I am a sucker for interesting characters, I was drawn in anyway.

I listened to this on audiobook and Davies did a good job. She sounded very much like I imagine Shanti would and did a good job with male voices as well. I would recommend listening to on audiobook if you enjoy audiobooks.

There are a few things about this book that make it seem a bit amateurish. The writing here is a bit rough and some of the things that occur in the story don't quite make sense. Some of the things that don’t make sense and are contradictory in the beginning are eventually explained. However, the way it’s put together is sloppy.

Additionally some of the way actions are described are a bit just....off. For some reason Breene has an obsession with telling you how a guy’s balls react in a given situation; the description “so and so made his balls tighten in anticipation/anger/lust” was used quite a bit. This was a unique experience for me because I didn’t realize a guys balls could be so expressive in so many different types of situations (war, general conversations, etc). A number of descriptors were similar (using strange body parts to try to convey a characters’ emotions) and it felt a bit...off and awkward.

Despite the above as the story continued I ended up being very engaged with the characters and this world. I really want to know what’s going to happen to Shanti and Sanders and the rest of our characters. I also loved the world and all the political issues here.

Overall I was surprised by the end how much I wanted to read the next book in this series. If you can get past the slightly rough and awkward writing style this is a pretty enjoyable book. I plan on reading the next one and hope that the writing quality smooths out a bit. I am hoping this is a case of “first book syndrome” and in the next book Breene will have a better writing stride and flow.

Great storyline of a strong woman who has lost everything and the journey she must face. Excellent character development, storyline, & plot! I adore the language lessons immensely! Looking forward to the next book!

Potential

The plot could have made a deeply immersive story. It falls short in character development!! Way short. I listened to the entire book, I was even engaged while not listening just thinking about what may happen. I did like the book. It is not a waste of time at all. Its just a bit frustrating in the lack of personal details also the order the author chose to reveal the protagonist's memories seem out of order and illogical. I would say this is a great first book for a brand new, young writter. I do not know if it is a first for the author...

WOW OH WOW!!

Ms. Caitlin Davies, you are my new favorite narrator, Ms. K. F. Breene is a master at writing, but you two put together is epic. Shanti is a goddess and I like her quickness when it comes to her interacting with her misfit boys. Cayan, ohhh hot Cayan....I can’t wait to get to know him better. This is starting out as a great series, let’s face it Ms. Breene imagination is out of this world and I love it. Amazing book.

Wow

I really love this series. There was action from beginning to end. The characters were all well written. The story progressed smoothly. The narrator was amazing in bringing even more life and suspense into the characters and storyline. There was enough romance that wasn't too much, enough fit for this kind of series which to me focuses more on the action, story progression. and characters.

Favorite series, great narration

I have read this series through the fifth book. I am re-reading and listening via Audible before I finish the series. This author is an auto buy for me. This is the first series I read of hers and was hooked. Now I read everything of hers. The narrator does a great job with Shanti's voice. There is a lot of humorous sarcasm in her dialog and internal monologue that the narrator carries well. Her tone and timing are great. Her voices are distinctive and her narration of the Captain is also excellent. If you are on the fence, give it a try. This is one of my favorite series and couples. This is book one of six. So be prepared to read more. In this book, you learn about Shanti as the other characters do. Her skills, leadership and past unfolds throughout the story. I definitely recommend reading this series.

Great fantasy fiction.

It was a little confusing at first. the way the book started out, not knowing the background, it was a little hard to follow but with her memories everything falls in place. I love the action sequences, the humor, sarcasm and sexual tension. Can't wait to read the next book.

riveting if though a bit stretched out

a great book to open a saga, the descriptions get a bit tedious and counterproductive after a while, nevertheless a fantastic find.

Completely different from "her" other series - BUT

grips you right from the start and holds you. The trick is (without spoiling) right from the start we already learn facts about the people which save and all thru the story accompany the heroine , before the "real" story starts. The storytelling is not as easy-peacy & upfront ironic even when the tide's getting up. The "humor "comes from the culture clash of a heroine Red Sonja with (2nd) Terminator's humor iin medieval Europe ;) The paranormal aspects are awesome and got me just starting book 2.

great story, but poorly narrated

I like the story a lot: a strong, witty heroin, facing her destiny while surviving the pain of her past, gets saved by people who become her new family. And again she needs to make a hard decision, one that might cost her life but will safe the people she cares about so much. Could be a perfect audio book, were it not for the narrator's voice... she reads with such a bored atonation, it nearly put me to sleep, even during the fighting scenes.
