(Chronicles of the Warlands #1)
SHE MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN HER PEOPLE AND HER FREEDOM...
Xylara is the Daughter of the Warrior King, Xyron. With her father dead and her incompetent half-brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to the warring Firelanders.
Before she was old enough for a marriage-of-alliance, Xylara was trained as a healer. She can't usurp her brother or negotiate a peace--but she can heal the brave ones injured in battle.
But not only her countrymen are wounded, and Xylara's conscience won't let Firelander warriors die when she can do something to save them. She learns their language and their customs and tries to make them as comfortable as possible, despite their prisoner-of-war status.

Warprice... the book brought me to another world which came along with ALOT of confusion (in a good way) which is mostly why i enjoyed this book. First, the story was new to me (haven't read another book with the same plot before) so i never knew what to expext which really rarely happens to me since many other books tended to have the same plot. That's what gave readers like us(me) a new experience and excitement. The flow of the event was unexpected, it actually suprised me in some point.
Second, i can feel the character, it was easy to relate with. It was like I'm the one living with all the strugles and all of those mix emotions. I salute the author for having exellent writing skills.
Lastly, there's just not a single dull moment.
How much I loved it?
