Publisher's summary

The Survivor...

Though no one can command her, this warrior would try to conquer her heart...

Physically scarred in childhood by an act of betrayal, Pia has never been considered an attractive woman to other humans, but in a universe filled with aliens she's managed to blend in. One horrible mistake and she is on the run. Desperate to hide her identity, she makes a deal with Galaxy Brides - in exchange for a new face, she'll marry anyone they put in front of her. Never did she realize her future husband would be the most handsome warrior of the Draig.

The Warrior...

Though no man can thwart the brave dragon leader, a woman would be his undoing... Dragonshifter Zoran of Draig is a man who knows what he wants. Being a prince and the commander, he is called upon to make swift decisions, be ready to battle at a moment's notice, and most of all, he always expected to be in control. When his beautiful wife, the one person who should obey him unconditionally, refuses to do so, Zoran discovers the battle for his heart's desire is fiercer than any he war ever waged before. Can the conqueror become the conquered?

About the Series:

The dragonshifting princes have no problem with commitment. In one night, they will meet and choose their life mate in a simplistic ceremony involving the removing of masks and the crushing of crystals. With very few words spoken and the shortest, most bizarre courtship in history, they will bond to their women forever. And once bonded, these men don't let go... Too bad nobody explained this to their brides.

Great Story But Ready For Fresh Plot!


I've really enjoyed the Dragon Lord series. Each book has a good mix of action, adventure, drama, and romance; however, I'm hoping the next book in the series has a fresh plot. The first four books in the series revolves around the same plot, just from four different POV's. I feel like I'm listening to the same story.....again.

Worth a credit? Only if the next book as a different plot.

REMEMBER~WHAT ASSUMING DOES

I will warn anyone who may want to listen to any in this series that Michelle M. Pillow writes this with the male and female FULLY misunderstanding one another. If that be because one attempts to do the thinking for the other or one is too slow to respond to another so an assumption is made, you will find it quite annoying!
The only true way I was able to get through this listen was to skip chapters. I'm sorry to say, because I hate doing that. I won't be using a credit or spending any of my money on one in this series again.
There is substance to the content of MP's book. If she would write the relationship between her lead male and female characters in such a way that we, the listeners/readers could respect and tolerate them, she would be SPOT ON in her writing strength. Setting them up in the manner in which she does make, we the consumer become uncomfortable, and angry with those characters personalities.
I enjoy that she writes this series with females being part of the Galaxy Bride's, where women are taken to various planets where the male's population are needing women to procreate their worlds. The simplistic manner in which a 'crystal' worn by the men since their birth alerts them to who their 'true mate' is. All of this along with the tradition of unity of marriage and the institution of family is well done by Michelle Pillow. I appreciate her for that.
My recommendation is:
If you Can overlook or tolerate the banter of misunderstanding that goes on between the husband and wife in these books then your money/credit will not be wasted.
If such bantering annoys you beyond reason. Don't waste your money or your credit.

Narrator was terrible, but story was great!

I loved the story! I recommend to read this book. The narrator was almost unbearable to listen to. The previous narrators in this series were great. I am glad to see that the next book is not narrated by Sarah Van Sweden! I love the series and will continue to listen!

Loved the story but the narration was choppy

If you could sum up Warrior Prince in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful Love Story

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the story about Pia and Prince Zoran. Pia was burned over 60% of her body. After extensive surgeries, she doesn't recognize the face staring back at her. She never expects someone to choose her. Pia has a tough journey from being a shy, scarred woman into the beautiful and confident woman she becomes.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sarah Van Sweden?

I would love to hear Jennifer Ikeda narrate the book. She really brings the characters to life and the flow of the story is very fluid. Sarah Van Sweden's narration is very choppy and hard to listen to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Captain of the Guard finds love with an assassin

Any additional comments?

Pia the assassin, is in trouble. She needs to disappear after she finds out that the man she just killed is the mayor's son. That is very difficult for her since she is scarred over 60% of her body. The only way she knows to get a new face when she can't afford one is to contract with Galaxy Brides. They agree that they can help her but she must sign an exclusive contract with them until she is married. After two weeks of endless surgeries, she is on her way to Qurilixen with a ship load of other potential brides to attend the Draig Breeding Festival. She doesn't think anyone would ever pick her since she still sees herself as scarred and ugly.

Prince Zoran is immediately taken with her beauty and is so happy that she was the one that made his crystal glow. Pia thinks that no one as good looking as Zoran could possibly have any interest in her and is upset with him when he takes her to his tent. She keeps expecting his friends to jump out laughing since he picked "the ugly girl". Zoran is so confused about why she is refusing him and takes offense every time he tells her how beautiful she is. He has to force her hands to remove the mask so they can freely speak and finds out that she must marry whoever chooses her because of her contract. He uses this against her to make her stay and complete the ceremony. Once they get back to his house, she cuts her hair off even though he told her not to since it was considered a "disfigurement" and done only as a way to punish a woman.

Pia has a hard time adjusting to life with Zoran. She really believes he married her as a joke and constantly tells him she wants a divorce. This really upsets Zoran to the point that he goes back to training the soldiers the next day instead of taking time to get to know her better. Pia is left in the house by herself for the next few days which just makes her more upset with him. She finally breaks out of the house and goes to the training grounds. Little does she know that Zoran is the Captain of the Guard and is over all the soldiers. Pia engages the soldiers in a little competition until Zoran shows up...and boy do the sparks fly then.

Eventually, Pia and Zoran start getting to know each other and smooth some things out. But Zoran doesn't realize that keeping things about what is going on makes Pia feel like he doesn't trust her. How will they ever make their marriage work? Guess you will have to listen to find out.

I do love the story. I would have enjoyed it more if it was narrated more fluidly.

Not my cup of Tea

This is the 4th book in the series. I read so many wonderful reviews. I purchased all 9 books and all 9 Audible at once . I kept reading and listening up to this book the 4th one. I;m good with the stories. But I just cannot handle any more of the females turning into complete idiots and pretending to be clueless. They start off being strong and challenging and as the books go further into chapters they ask as if they are stupid women, which none of them are. In this last book it was the final straw. Pia asks her mother in law that where to babies come from!! REALLY!!!!! This is suppose to be a spy that is very intelligent and a strong fighter, has traveled to universe and is asking how a baby grows in her then says that in 4 months the baby can feed it self. That's when I broke. That's it. I can't do any more of these books. I had purchased all nine books and all 9 audible. I will return the rest of the 5 books. I really cant move past this. It would drive me crazy to read any more ignorant behavior. As for the Narrator in the 4th book....She finalized my decision.

Narrator seemed confused on the age of characters.

This is my favorite book out of the entire series but the narration left much to be desired. She seemed to be confused when reading for the King and Queen thinking they were elderly, which isn't the case they still have centuries to live and are in their prime. Also she made all of the princesses sound like breathless pre-teens, these women should have sounded strong and independent for the post part.

Did she forget she was a bride?

I liked the story but Pia irritated me when she acted like she didn't have to be a wife. Darn good thing her warrior was honorable. Love the dragons and love how feisty Pia's personality was inquisitive and confident for someone scarred!

Amazing series !!!


Warrior Prince is the fourth book in The Dragon Lords series by Michelle M. Pillow. It tells us the story of Prince Zoran and Pia.

Prince Zoran is the captain of the Draig guards and one of the 4 princes looking for a bride thru Galaxy Brides.

Pia, a trained assassin physically scarred from a childhood act of betrayal, is running from a possible execution. In exchange for being given a new face she joins the Galaxy Brides.

I enjoyed this book. The characters are fresh and exciting even though the books all take place at the same time and place the stories are each unique. The books are very well written and a must read for all paranormal readers.

I highly recommend this series. It's a really good read.
