Publisher's Summary

Chandra de Avenell might look like a golden princess, but she fights like a warrior, dreams a warrior’s dreams, and wears a warrior’s pride like a suit of armor. She wants to be strong, independent, and free. She has no use at all for a husband. Enter the man her father has selected for her. Jerval de Vernon takes one look at Chandra, and he wants her. After he saves her from a very bad situation, he sets himself to wooing her—not an easy task.

How does a man convince a woman he coerces into marriage to become a wife? To give him her loyalty and trust? Love is something he would like her to consider as well. But what if the wife has no intention of cooperating? Does he break her or finally give up to her?

Skip This Book & Move On To The Next In The Series

I started this book because I read one further in the series & really liked it so I decided to start the series from the beginning. If I'd started w/ this book I'd have never read another! The heroine was a prideful, immature, selfish girl; & the hero went from admiring her "warrior" skills to trying to smother them out of her! That said at least he was overall likable. I'll never understand why so called "strong" women have to be stubborn & prideful to the point of stupidity! Added to that is that the overall story line was awful! The emphasis the author places on the worthlessness of women in the period almost makes one wonder if she believes that herself! The complete focus of the story is the strife between the characters and the various settings and troubles they must overcome are pointless shadows there only to drag the story out. As I said, if you want to read this series skip this book and start with different one.

NOPE

I can move beyond much misogyny in a historical book with the expectation that it is overcome in the end. Regardless of time period, there is no salvaging a romance if the opening scene involves the man raping the woman’s friend in front of her. Why bother continuing.

Warrior's Song

Originally published as Chandra this book is the first of a four boo set. I like the fact that a woman can be a hero.

History and romance

If you could sum up Warrior's Song in three words, what would they be?

History and romance in one story.

What other book might you compare Warrior's Song to and why?

Any of Catherine's other historical romance novels and I plan to read the next one in the series.

Disappointed with the narrator!

The story was interesting but very difficult to follow due to the narrator. The narrator ran the sentences, and different characters within the story, together.

Nothing likable

Nothing likable about the characters. Don’t think I can make it through this whole book. Story is slow and dragging.

Great narrator

The narrator helps me choose the book. Anne Flosnik is an excellent narrator. I was not disappointed with her performance with this book at all. The author was trying to portray an independent woman who could hold her own as a fighter. Unfortunately she did not give this heroin a brain. I have a problem with stupid acting, self serving female characters in books who put many people in jeopardy because of their childish acts. If you want to portray an independent woman, then also give her a brain. Plus the second half of the book made it feel disconnected from the first half. I only gave 3 stars.
