Publisher's Summary

Crown Prince Aven Lanuken wants something more than a trophy for a future wife. He wants a woman who will be more friend than follower. A queen who will be more warrior than diplomat. He wants a partner he can trust...with a dangerous secret that's kept him trapped in a dark mountain fortress his entire life.

Mage slave Miara wants something more, too - to find an enemy prince. And not to marry him. She's just received orders for her very first kidnapping. She loathes the idea of it, and it's probably a suicide mission. But she has never failed a mission before and doesn't intend to start now.

Of all the women in the world, why does he have to fall for the one trying to kill him?

Magic, politics, love, and fate collide in the destinies of two people in this fantasy adventure from R. K. Thorne. For lovers of swords and sorcery with a side of romance, Mage Slave is the first novel in the Enslaved Chronicles trilogy.

    "story great but the narration is a bit odd"

    Just loved this book...but some times it felt like a Midwestern mom was reading it to me in bed. Not that there's anything particularly wrong with that but it doesn't go with the setting or story at all...

    "Predictable"

    Really predictable and more of a romance novel then a fantasy novel. Not something I would recommend but ok if you need to waste some time.

    "Loved it"

    I started this book on my Kindle and did not get very far. That is not against the book so much as the fact I have two toddlers who see the Kindle and the lunge for it. Most of my reading is listening now and this audio book came out later than the kindle version. My only complaint is that I hope we do not have to wait as long for book 2 in the series to be available on audible! Or maybe I am going to have to lock myself in a room to read it because I loved this book!

    Aven and Miara were likeable and believable as characters as was their romance. But what I really loved was the fresh way Thorne had them overcome the obstacles in their way. I dont want to write out any spoilers, but if you like romantic fantasy you are doing a serious disservice to yourself by not reading this!

    "A warrior prince, an enslaved spy & great plot"

    Not once was I bored, a fast paced and action packed well-written fantasy novel. Excellent world building. Great job on the narration. Both main characters were likeable and can't wait for the 2nd book to find out what happens next.

    I recommend this audiobook.

    "Slow to start BUT left me wanting more by the end."

    Struggled in the beginning but progressively better chapters later with a strong ending that makes me want to continue the adventure.

    "Great Performance Poor Story"
    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book Thinking its a fantasy story of intrigue with a splash of romance, but what i get is a romance novel placed in a fantasy setting. Even than, the romance portion is not so well written 1/2 of the way through, rather than reading a romance novel i felt like I was reading the progression of stockholm syndrome.

    Story
    "cheesy and juvenile writing and performance."

    horrible dialogue, worse internal monologues. overall story has potential but characters were forgettable at best but mostly unbelievably annoying and obnoxious. I'm getting my credit back on this one.

    Story
    "Very enjoyable fantasy!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is an enjoyable story with just the right amount of romance for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main female, Miara, is my favorite character. She is strong in her craft and doesn't need saving from her peers.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    At first it seemed that her pace was a bit quick, but I got used to it and she separated characters well. Occasionally, it was difficult to tell that there had been a scene change, so an extra pause would have been good here and there, but her voice is pleasant and it was easy to forget I was listening and instead get into the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, although I listen to audio books in roughly 40 minute increments during my commute. The story moves well and it was difficult to turn it off when I got home or to work!


    Any additional comments?

    I had purchased and read this book last year. I received a free audio copy from the author. I enjoyed the audio version just as much as I'd enjoyed the paper version and I'm looking forward to reading the next installation!
