Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Elizabeth A. Vaughan believes that the only good movies are the ones with gratuitous magic, swords or lasers. Not to mention dragons. At the present, she is owned by three incredibly spoiled cats and lives in the Northwest Territory, on the outskirts of the Black Swamp, along Mad Anthony’s Trail on the banks of the Maumee River.

Customer Reviews

Still a good read and there are questions waiting to be answered.
J. Daitch
The story moves at a great pace and is filled with emotion, romance, danger and conflict.
J. Jones
He's hurt and angry that Atira won't admit their time together meant anything.

I stumbled across Elizabeth Vaughan's book "Warprize" when in first came out and instantly fell in love with both the characters and their very different cultures. I have to say, I was very disappointed when her next set of books, starting with "Dagger-star," took us to a different part of the world she created. I didn't care for the new culture or the new characters very much and only skimmed them until "Destiny's Star" took us back to the Plains. "Warcry" is even better--it takes us back to Keir and Lara, though as seen through characters Atira and Heath, and their efforts to create a new world that fuses Xyian and Plains peoples and cultures.

That being said, what about the romance? This book focuses on previous support characters Heath and Atira, and while the evolution of their relationship was enjoyable, it wasn't why I read the book. Truth be told, I think this series would be better off if packaged as fantasy with a strong romance, rather than a romance with a strong fantasy aspect, though I can understand why, for marketing reasons, they've classified it as romance (though the cover makes me shake my head and go, "Really?"). That being said, the sex scenes felt a bit out of place, as though the author wrote the book without them and then she or the editor or somebody looked over the finished book and went, "Well, darn it, this is a romance! It needs lovemaking!" I skipped over them and don't feel that I missed anything from the story.

All in all, a very satisfying story, though a bit confusing if you haven't read Keir and Lara's trilogy. I can't wait for the next book!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Recently a Warprize, Queen Lara may be carrying the Warlord Keir's child, but knows she must return home to the Kingdom of Xy to claim the throne for herself and her heir. Heath has protected Xy throughout her perilous adventures on the dangerous Plains. He looks forward to seeing family when they get home, but fears for the safety of his childhood friend when they reach the city; as politics is literally a backstabbing betrayal activity.

Heath also tries to persuade Atria of the Bear warrior that they belong together. However, though she is attracted to him, she loathes the idea of living in the city as she prefers the plains. As they accompany the Queen and Keir home, they protect Lara from assassins and a treacherous schemer.

The latest Chronicles of the Warlands is a terrific romantic fantasy as Elizabeth Vaughn enables readers to observe the cultural and social differences between the people of the Kingdom of Xy and those living on the Plains. The story line is loaded with action, but it is the dramatic differences in outlook between Heath and Atria that makes the brisk tale so powerful, refreshing and entertaining. Sub-genre fans will ponder whether he can move his irresistible beloved female warrior to accept their love; while also protecting his friend, the pregnant Queen.

Warcry is the seventh book in the world created by Elizabeth Vaughan but actually is more like the fourth of the original series,"Warprize".set between the lands of Xy...the city dwellers...and the Plains...the roaming warriors. It would be best if you were to read the first three books in order to feel at home in the story in my opinion. Although there are explanations throughout Warcry, you would miss the character developments and world building from the first three.
I have to admit that I really ended up more interested in Keir and Lara's dilemmas than with the main characters, Heath and Ateira, I think that Atiera's resistance to "bonding" seems so very out of place in the world that Elizabeth had built from before. There weren't any examples of what she feared would happen if she and Heath bonded or married and I didn't feel it fit into what I thought a warrier would have worried about. Bonding was presented as a very rare and special relationship in the previous books and then all of a sudden Ateira made it into a completely different type of relationship.
Nevertheless, hope that Elizabeth continues into the joining of two completely different cultures with Keir and Laura's romance driving the story forward and then a few secondary romance to spice things up.
I am anxious to see what happens with Keir's desire to become a WarKing and with what will happen with the Warrior Priest's changing roll in the future. Maybe a way to reconcile Keir and the Warrior Priests?
Lastly the ending was really out of place in this book. It seemed like the last chapter was just added from a completely different story! Don't bother to read it and you will miss nothing LOL
If you liked the other books then you will most likely enjoy Warcry.

Atira of the Bear values her freedom above all else. Heath of Xy would do anything to protect his queen. Both hunger for each other and maybe something more. But trouble is brewing in the court of Xy and it will take all they have to uncover the players involved and find what is truly dear to them.

Keir and Xylara are headed back to Waters Fall for the birth of their child, but this isn't their story. Front and center in Warcry are Heath, Lara's childhood friend, and Atira, the plains woman whose leg Lara healed way back in Warprize. Both Heath and Atira were fairly minor characters for the first two books but the promotion to lead character doesn't feel forced. Both are dedicated to protecting their leaders and each other. Both are stubborn and strong and they play off of each other really well. Atira's temper meshes well with Heath's level headedness and it was just hilarious to read his reactions to her teasing. It was interesting to see Atira's reactions to the city and its people as well as her responses to Xyan culture. It was also kind of nice to see that she and Heath were, for the most part, on even footing when it came to fight scenes and verbal sparring.

I will admit that I was a bit disappointed with the villains. I understand that Lord Durst wants to avenge his sons and that he doesn't want the royal family to mix with the conquers who killed them, but he also gets into using some fairly misogynistic language towards Lara and doesn't seem to get why anyone would take offense to it. This guy's supposed to be a powerful lord and the leader of a conspiracy? There's also Lanfer, who was apparently Heath's rival from childhood. He has no real reason to join the conspiracy; he's just doing it to make Heath suffer.
