WarDance by Elizabeth Vaughan

I had never read ANYTHING similar like this trilogy before. A high fantasy romance about a strong female lead and the warlord who captured her. No wonder, being so enamored with this series, that I read it again and again throughout the years, now I own the ebooks as well.:D

CORINA’S REVIEW

 

I feel like there are not enough words to describe how I feel about this book!!

But let’s start at the beginning.

I think it must have been 10 years ago when I first was introduced to the Chronicles of the Warlands (Warprize, Warsworn and Warlord) by Elizabeth Vaughan. At that time it was my first foray into romance fantasy and I was HOOKED!!! I don’t think I could have read a better fantasy romance trilogy to start with.

I had never read ANYTHING similar like this trilogy before. A high fantasy romance about a strong female lead and the warlord who captured her. No wonder, being so enamored with this series, that I read it again and again throughout the years, now I own the ebooks as well.:D

I adored the idea of being literarily swept away by a foreign and conquering warlord. And I was so sad to see the trilogy come to an end.  The author wrote a 4th book years later but it still seemed not to be enough. I wanted and needed MORE.

Imagine how I felt when I found out that she wrote another book and it was coming out within weeks of me finding out about it. After so many years of waiting and hoping I was finally being rewarded for my patience.:D I was more than ecstatic. It was like Christmas and my birthday combined.

Just a fair warning I would NOT recommend jumping into this book without having read books 1-4. WarDance is a continuing of book 4 – Warcry. lBUT I can only recommend everyone interested in fantasy romance to give this series a try.

Book 1-3 was about Lara of Xy and her Warlord, Keir of the Cat.

Book 4 was about Heath of Xy and Atira of the Bear.  

Book 5 (WarDance) is about Simus of the Hawk and a warrior-priestess named Snowfall.

For me Seimus and Snowfall were perfect for each other. Their romance was a slow burn. It was the heart of the story, guiding, leading but not taking over. WarDance was more than a love story. It was the continuing of a plot that turned out to be bigger than I could have imagined. 

So many more questions need answering, and the ending of WarDance was a clear sign that more was to come. Seimus and Snowfall’s journey might not be done yet.

I thought Elizabeth Vaughan did a PHENOMENAL job writing this book. lI had NO idea where this book was going. I was more than pleased to learn that the Chronicles of the Warlands were far from over. And it felt WarDance was just the beginning of an even bigger story to come. Which made me HAPPY!!!

BLURB

WarDance - Elizabeth VaughanSpring returns to the Plains, and with it, the Time of the Challenges, when warrior fights warrior in a contest for rank and status. For Simus of the Hawk, now is the time to raise his challenge banner, to fight for the chance to finally become Warlord.

But his deadliest challenge does not come from other warriors, or even the sundered Council of Elders. For on the first night of the Challenges, a mysterious and deadly pillar of white light scorches the night sky—instantly changing everything for the People of the Plains.

Now a warrior-priestess, Snowfall, stands before Simus, who dares to speak of peace, of reconciliation. Her knives are sharp, her tattoos alluring, and her cool grey eyes can look through Simus and see…everything.

Now Simus and Snowfall must solve the mystery of the pillar of white light, and protect their people from all the destruction and chaos it brings. Snowfall fights for her place beside Simus, despite resistance from friend and foe.

The warrior-priests have abused their power for many years. Can Simus face the challenge of trusting Snowfall with his honor? And perhaps . . . with his heart?
