Publisher's Summary

As a decorated soldier, the young General Tao knows only one kind of honor—to his people. But when his own king betrays him, he discovers that his sacrifices, his successes, may not have been for the good of the country at all.

Fate—and his enemies—throw him together with Elsabeth, a red-haired beauty who has served as the royal tutor. Her loyalties, though, remain with her father's people, the rebellious Kurel, who worship the old ways, even harboring the forbidden arks that brought the Kurel to this planet ages ago. When a threat greater than their peoples' war looms, intent on destroying the world they both know, the fierce warrior and the sensitive scholar must unite. Together, they must fight for their planet, for their world and for their love.

Mixture of Medieval and Futuristic

This is a very unique story. This is my second story by this author and I received this through the romance package. However, I have to say I really liked the story and want to see where the story will continue. This is not a really serious smut story and other than a small blip of a sex scene at about seven hours and forty-five minutes into the story that was it.

General Tao, a Tassagon, returns from years in the Hinterlands battling the Gorr, a Human dog like creature that can charm a person who looks directly in the eyes. Upon returning he meets Elsabeth, who is a Kurel. You see the results of racial conflict between the Tassagon and Kurel after centuries. Tao is the brother-in-law to King Xim who has a weak character and is extremely jealous of Tao. Tao is 28 and a war hero and ready for retirement, whereas; Xim is a few years younger and has been the king for 4 or 5 years. The character issues were exacerbated by bad influences from an angry Colonel Beck who wanted what wasn't his to have. Thus Xim betrays Tao and try to have him killed.

This story has a great world building that keeps you hooked. You can image the difference in what is common beliefs and medical practices in the 21st century vs. beliefs and medical practices in the 16th century and older. Think the Salem witch trials and the black plague. one half of a town lives in an older century and the other half lives in the current century. makes for a very interesting story.

The narrator was fantastic. I loved her voice. It was smooth and engrossing, and great job on the different accents, and you don't realize its just one person reading the story. She did a fantastic job in the different male and female voices.

Very different and imaginative and inviting to read. I really hated to put it down and will be actually purchasing it when i get my next credit. I personally found it worth a credit.

Don't Insult Me

Would you try another book from Susan Grant and/or Elizabeth Jasicki?

Maybe, as I have enjoyed her books in the past but this was disappointing, boring, and not what I expect from this author. I will bw careful of my next purchase from this author.

Has The Last Warrior turned you off from other books in this genre?

Absolutely Not! I love this genre and have enjoyed this author in paperback in the past. This was my first real loser from her.

What three words best describe Elizabeth Jasicki’s performance?

Can't overcome bad story!

What character would you cut from The Last Warrior?

The book....

Any additional comments?

What else can I say? This is one of my returns from disappointment. It happens.
