Enari is taken as part of the tribute to the Asku, but only after she resists.  Because of her courage and injuries, she is chosen by the Overlord’s wife for her son. 

The first book of the Darkest Star Saga is beautiful look at a society that has adapted to survive.  Warlord’s Prize is about a courageous woman that becomes the bond mate of the Warlord. 

Ms. Masters created a beautiful world with very rich customs.  Even though the Asku get wives through tribute, the custom creating the bond is beautiful.  I found it interesting that one is chosen as a representative for all the women of a particular planet and she is the one that the others from her planet will look to. 

The Warlord’s mother is a very strong character and one we will be seeing in the future.  The other secondary characters are interesting and contribute to the history of the Asku.  Enari and Drion have a wonderful chemistry and set the tone for the series.  I am looking forward to the next book.
