Publisher Description

"Gena Showalter never fails to dazzle."—Jeaniene Frost, New York Times bestselling author

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter begins a dark, sexy new series—Rise of the Warlords—with a fan-favorite character from her beloved Lords of the Underworld series, Taliyah Skyhawk. The ice maiden faces off with her greatest enemy, a villain brutal beyond imagining.

For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon.

The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress powerful enough to overcome his incredible strength. No enchantress desirable enough to make him burn beyond reason. Until now.

With the clock ticking, war between husband and wife ignites. Except Taliyah never expected the merciless king to challenge the future she once envisioned. She certainly never anticipated the thrill of their battles turning into games… The problem is, only one spouse can survive.

Love is a battlefield in Showalter’s The Warlord.

LOVE

I started reading this in the morning and now it’s 8 p.m. and I gotta say 😭😮‍💨 I LOVE THIS AUTHOR SO MUCH! It’s funny, witty and 🥵!

Disatisfied and disabused ,

If I could give it zero stars

I would. I love trashy smut, but this was so difficult to read. The sentences were poorly structured. The author kept adding new bits of world building almost constantly, kind of violating the rules of fantasy genre

😲lol😲 ,

A burning read

He’s an unmovable warlord who’s been tasked with sacrificing his bride to ensure victory in a millennium long war. She’s a headstrong harpy who will do anything to free her people. In a test of will, who will be victorious?

Taliyah the terror of all lands finds herself the unwitting bride of Alaroc Phaethon commander of the Astra Planeta. His only goals are to keep his new bride alive.. and a virgin for the next 30 days.

In the first book in the Rise of the Warlords series by Gena Showalter we are given a glimpse into what truest makes Taliyah Skyhawk cold-hearted. If you thought her other books were hot, prepare to be burned. You’ll tingle, burn and cry tears of sadness and joy as we follow Roc and Taliyah as they fight each other and themselves. I can’t wait for the next book!
