Review: The Warden War by D.L. Morrese

 The Warden War (Defying Fate) by D.L. Morrese

The Warden War continues the quest begun by Prince Donald in The Warden Threat. His father, the king of Westgrove, has been told that the neighboring kingdom of Gotrox has discovered a magical means to animate a mysterious and gigantic ancient stone warrior, the Warden of Mystic Defiance, which it plans to use it to spearhead an invasion of his kingdom. Donald is convinced this is a hoax carefully crafted by his father’s chief advisor to bring about a war. Donald is determined to thwart him. It will not be easy. Chief Advisor Horace Barter has resources, connections, influence, and the almost unquestioned trust of the king. Donald, sadly, has none of these. What the young prince does have is a nominal position with the diplomatic team being sent to Gotrox and the companionship of a few rather unique friends including a pair of 15,000 year old androids, one of which is a dog--or a reasonable facsimile thereof.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this sequel to The Warden Threat, which I highly recommend. If you haven't read it, I would start there. You can read my review by clicking here. This story continues where The Warden Threat left off, with Donald trying to avert a war. All of our favorite characters are back, as well as a new addition. Moe is fantastic, although Nash is the only one who really knows how funny he is.

This book had a bit more of a sci-fi feel, as well as more emphasis on politics. To me it also seemed a bit slower paced and somewhat more serious than the first. It is fairly tense, because the country is about to go to war. There is still my kind of humor, though not quite as much of it. I do recommend this series if you are looking for something different. A great read.

My Rating: ****
