Publisher's Summary

Peyne Erlich’s mission from the king is to learn everything he can about the rival kingdom’s magical ink mage warriors. What he finds is Zayda Yond. 

Ever since Zayda was sold into servitude by her financially destitute father, her masters have taught her a punishing lesson: erase the past. Collared with an unmovable band of exotic metal, she faces a future of slavery. She’s also become an ink mage, marked with a tattoo that enables her to experience the world as no one else can - a powerful honor, yet one out of her control. Now, Zayda dreams only of escape. 

She gets her chance when a scuttled ocean passage leaves her in a longboat, and in the company of another lone survivor, Peyne, a foreign envoy - spoiled, noble, a libertine, and a gambler. He’s also a skilled fighter. And when they make it to land, in wild and unfamiliar jungle territory, he’s the only person Zayda can trust. 

Then come rumors of a lost desert city said to hold the key to removing Zayda’s collar. Shadowed by enemies who want to use her power to win their own war, Zayda must fight for her freedom - whatever the cost. And Peyne will do anything to help her.

Another good fantasy from Gischler

Warrior Prime has all the action, magic and humor from the original trilogy only with new characters and old faces. I enjoyed this trip to the land author Victor Gischler created albeit not as much as the original trilogy. I hope he continues to write these books and as long as he does I’ll read them.

the worst of the Ink Make books

Definitely the worst of the Ink Mage books. Tons of inconsistencies and blanks within this book. Feels a bit like the author ran out of time and didn't have anyone proofread the thing. The performance of the narrator is good, but slightly less engaging and less versatile than the narrator of the first three Ink Mage books. Pretty disappointed with the story too... should have stopped after the first three books.

The best one so far

The writing and plotting have improved tremendously over the course of this series. I think Gischler has finally hit his stride. I'm looking forward to more of this series. The narrator on the audiobook is also fantastic!

Awesome!

I loved the Ink Mage series, and this is a great addition to the story. I can’t wait for the next books! Billie Fulford-Brown is one of my favorite Narrators.

An interesting continuation of a series

A solid story, with some hints to the original series. Only one returning character shows that the storyline will be relatively new while also tied to the original series loosely at best. I liked the story, and enjoyed the performance by Ms. Fulford-Brown. Overall, very well done. I look forward to the next part of the series.
