Warrior of the World (Chronicles of Dasnaria, #3)
Just beyond the reach of the Twelve Kingdoms, avarice, violence, strategy, and revenge clash around a survivor who could upset the balance of power all across the map . . .  Once Ivariel thought elephants were fairy tales to amuse children. But her ice-encased childhood in Dasnaria’s imperial seraglio was lacking in freedom and justice.. With a new name and an assumed identity as a warrior priestess of Danu, the woman once called Princess Jenna is now a fraud and a fugitive. But as she learns the ways of the beasts and hones new uses for her dancer’s strength, she moves one day further from the memory of her brutal husband. Safe in hot, healing Nyambura, Ivariel holds a good man at arm’s length and trains for the day she’ll be hunted again.   She knows it’s coming. She’s not truly safe, not when her mind clouds with killing rage at unpredictable moments. Not when patient Ochieng’s dreams of a family frighten her to her bones. But it still comes as a shock to Ivariel when long-peaceful Nyambura comes under attack. Until her new people look to their warrior priestess and her elephants to lead them . . .

    Warrior Of The World continues where Exiles Of The Seas ended. At its very core this story is about healing, soul searching, preparing for things to come, awakening the warrior within and embracing new possibilities, new ways of life and thinking. I readily admit that the story didn't go the way I thought it would which makes me happy in that it wasn't predictable but part of me wishes that some of the things I wanted to happen happened. I still found it enjoyable and I'm excited to see what, if Warrior Of The World continues where Exiles Of The Seas ended.

    I received this novel from net galley and the publisher. Thank you!The Chronicles of Dania continue as Princess Jenna, now known as Ivariel, continues to find her place in the world away from the empire she grew up in. She has many internal battles to conquer as well as external ones. Ochieng has fallen in love with Ivariel and wants to marry her. However, the scars left by her deceased husband still affect her, yet she tries to move forward. She continues her work with the elephants, especially I received this novel from net galley and the publisher.

She has many internal battles to conquer as well as external ones. Ochieng has fallen in love with Ivariel and wants to marry her. However, the scars left by her deceased husband still affect her, yet she tries to move forward. She continues her work with the elephants, especially Efe, who also bares scars and sees as a kindred spirit as well as being a warrior priestess of Danu. She continues to use her dances she learned to become stronger. Ivariel still wonders about the family members she left behind and if she will be hunted for the death of her brutal husband. She begins to feel like one of the people until a tragedy forces her to become the warrior priestess to protect those she cares about and seek justice to those who did them wrong. Ivariel is clever and uses the lessons learned from childhood and her skills as a Danu priestess to help the people of Nyambura have the peace they long desire. Still the world is changing and the people of Nyambura need to adjust to the change and Ivaeriel let the others know of the power of the goddess Danu.

    Great finish to Jenna’s story. I would like to know how her life and her family tie in with the rest of the characters of the world Jeffe Kennedy has created. Because even though this story is complete there are signs at the end that there’s more to come and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
