Blood Sword (Lost Princess) by L. J. Maisen


His Oath...

My loyalty and sword to Rhaetia are true.

I lend my wit and might in fealty to you.

Neither through words, nor actions and deeds, will I dishonor thee.

His Quest...
One by one, the heirs to the Rhaetian throne have fallen, and now the future of the kingdom rests on the champion of the realm—the Blood Sword—finding the missing daughter of the king—the Lost Princess.

Blood Sword (Lost Princess Series Book 1)...

On the island nation of Xa’aia, the Blood Sword is enslaved as a gladiator and forced to fight to entertain the masses. However, to continue the search for the Lost Princess, he will do anything to gain his freedom.

Seeing a chance for escape, Zelayra, whore to Prince Calyl of Xa’aia, purchases the barbarian gladiator—so unlike the usual J’Haran prisoners and her Xa’aian captors in looks. But there is no time to ponder her similarity to the stranger and no time to explore the distant memories and unusual feelings his presence inspires, for she’s not the only one who’s been scheming in the island kingdom.

Tifferz Take-

This is an intriguing read. The pace is good paced read not too fast and not slow. I like
Raulf  he is a guy who is loyal and will kill if needs be to protect  Zelayra or himself. I feel for Zelayra. She has had a hard life. I like how she is quick, crafty and trust no one. Men are not to be trusted in her book for good reason. I did like the unexpected twists in this engaging story. You will be left wanting more. I look forward to reading book two Sword Dancer (Lost Princess Series Book 2)
L.J. Mason has created a story that packs a punch and sticks with you. This does have a few swear words and only reference to sex (no details)
