    The Warrior Prince, the first in a series, comes across as a com

    The Warrior Prince, the first in a series, comes across as a combination of stories. It starts out in the science-fiction realm, with a group of men from another planet trying to rid Earth of the bad guys from a very different planet. About halfway through, the story takes a leap into the ancient tales from Norse Mythology as the characters repeat ancient quests and reacquaint themselves with the Norse Gods.

    This combination has potential to work well in a story. However, readers will have a hard time following along, especially when the main ‘alien’ characters’ dialects keep switching back and forth between their home country and the current Earth setting. Nira Larson and Zohar Thorald each have redeeming qualities of inner strength and humility that readers will be able to relate to and appreciate.

    I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Set in a contemporary world woven with magic, intrigue, romance,

    Set in a contemporary world woven with magic, intrigue, romance, and suspense, Warrior Prince is based on Norse mythology. At its core is a woman’s search for her true identity and a man’s need to accept his destiny. Their fate together is written in the runes.

    Nira Larsen is having a bad day when she gets attacked at a seedy employment office in Orlando, FL. Rushing to her defense is a team of men clad in black and carrying guns. Their leader offers her a proposal. His men are strangers in town, and they need a local guide. Would Nira be interested in taking the job? Eager to earn the money so she can afford her own place to live, she accepts. Thus begins her descent into a nightmare of ancient prophesies, legendary myths, and danger.

    Zohar Thorald recognizes Nira as one of the prophesied women destined to prevent the coming apolcalypse, and he intends to keep her safe by his side. But under no circumstances must he fall for her charms, or she’ll pose a threat greater than his enemies.

    This is the first book in the Drift Lords series by Nancy J. Coh

    This is the first book in the Drift Lords series by Nancy J. Cohen.  The book opens up with Nira Larsen heading to the employment office of an amusement park just for adults called Drift World.  At this amusement park, you can role play any job you could possibly want.  Nira is applying for a job as a cosmetician.  But things start getting freaky when the woman holding the interview, Algie, can't get Nira to fall under her mind control spell and starts to take her hostage.  Just as Nira is panicking, a group of warriors break in and scare off Algie and her goons.  Then the building where she had the interview simply vanishes.  All Nira was looking for was a summer job to help finance her investigation into who her birth parents are and why they left her with a watch with Rune type writing on it that no one could read.  Now she is playing tour guide to a group of intergalactic warriors and wondering how she ended up caught in the middle.

    Zohar is the leader of the Drift Lords, a group of Warriors dedicated to keeping the dimensional rifts that open naturally on Earth from being manipulated by the Trollecks.  Trollecks are creatures who were displaced from their dimension by humans and are not happy about it.  This time, the Trollecks have managed to get some kind of device that lets them manipulate the dimensional rifts and they are using them to not only gain mind slaves, but to try and bring down the Drift Lords.  As the crown prince of the Star Empire and leader of the last group of Drift Lords, it is his job to find the device, close the rifts and stop the Trollecks. 

    There was a lot going on with this book.  Between the dimensional rifts and spatial shifting, Phase rifles and dythium charges, Asgard and Ragnorok, if you don't stay on the top of your game and pay attention, you just might get lost.  Luckily between the research that I have personally done on Norse Mythology as well as my love of Science Fiction, I was able to mostly keep up.  But there were times that I would have to go back and reread sections just to make sure that I kept things straight.  I did really like the mixture of two such divergent topics and how the author made them work, but it is a lot to keep up with.  I felt that the story wasn't as tight and there were some holes here and there because so much time was spent on combining the scifi and mythology aspects into a believable story.

    I am giving this book 3 stars on Goodreads. It was a good first book, we got introduced to the world, have the basic premise in place and are now track for the next book in the series.  My hope is the next book doesn't recover all the same ground.  It eats up a lot of pages explaining it and takes away from moving the plot forward.

    My Review
    This is the first in a new series by the author. It is a Sci/Fi Romance series and totally enjoyable. It features Nira Larsen a Grad Student who specializes in Mythology. Nira is taking a year off from school to earn money for school. After a few bad interviews, Nira Larsen hopes that this next one will go well. She enters the offices of Drift World, a new adult role playing park.
    The first thing she notices about the office is how shabby it is. Considering how well done Drift World’s park is, she is a bit apprehensive about her interview. After waiting a few minutes she is introduced to Algie Morar and escorted into a back area for her interview. At that point Nira begins to feel like Alice after she fell down the rabbit hole. A person is brought into the interview room and she is asked to “make him appear more human”. ??????? Say WHAT?
    She attempts to leave saying she’s changed her mind and heads for the door. While she is attempting her escape at this point the door blows open and a group of masked hotties enter the room and the battle begins.
    If you grew (like I did) watching Flash Gordon on television you will absolutely love this book. The sense of action and adventure and the feeling that you truly have fallen down the rabbit hole will keep you enthralled until the very end.
    FTC FULL DISCLOSURE: I received this book from the author who only expects a fair and impartial review.
