Banished for falling in love with a human, Nynn of Clan Tigony has been living quietly as a wife and mother. But when she and her son are kidnapped and Nynn is sent to the Cages, she must face her true warrior nature—and the magical birthright she has tried to ignore . . .
Leto of Clan Garnis is a Cage warrior, using his superhuman speed and reflexes to destroy all challengers. Within the Cages, he has had no equal . . . until he is forced to train Nynn.
Nynn sees proud Leto as no better than a slave, whereas he considers her a traitor. Forced to be allies, tormented by lust, the sparks between them threaten to explode as they learn the high price of honour in their violent underground domain.

Caged Warrior was a surprising read, especially because of its unique supernatural race, the Dragon Kings. They aren’t shifters but they have special gifts that differ among five clans. Now, how would this sound to you in a sort of Spartacus scenario? Gladiators, guys, Dragons oh-my-hotness gladiators. I think I made my point, didn’t I?

I had a clear picture in my mind thanks to the descriptions given from the author, and I really liked the development of the relationship between Leto and Audrey. It was really difficult to not be touched by their own stories. They had different issues—also some between one another—and perhaps they didn’t fight with the same passion, but they indeed did so for one reason only: family. The ones they care for are invaluable and they would do anything to keep them safe, even at the cost of their freedom or, in a worst-case scenario, their life . . .

Action and a strong attraction make this fast-paced book one to be devoured. Piper definitely created a compelling world in which violence, sorrow and hope lead the reader to savour every moment with a passion that perhaps they didn’t know they possessed. I can’t wait to dig deeper into the whole exciting plot!

  1. I'm so happy you enjoyed it as much as I did, Ellie! I already have the second instalment and it's kinda staring at me, full of expectations… So who knows, it won't probably take long for me to read it 😉

  2. So glad to hear that! Hope you get the chance to read it soon, even though I know how difficult it is to put a book in a huge TBR pile on Top…
    Thanks for the follow and have a wonderful Friday! 🙂
