*wonderfully FARDEN romantic!!!*
on October 4, 2001
WARRIOR's WOMAN is the first novel i read by Johanna Lindsey AFTER i finished the whole MALORYS series. And you know what? I don't seem to be getting tired or sick of her writing - anytime soon for that matter! Warrior's Woman was a lot of fun, and carries a very interesting plot! Its setting is in the future and in the past! Kind of a mixture of time-traveling, and displays a cross-difference in culture, due to the interesting time periods Johanna Lindsey has chosen.
The book opens with our heroine Tedra De Arr, in the future setting... to be specific 2139. Lindsey makes a point of describing a lot of high-tech machines, and computers that do all the work for humans...including this really neat concept of a meditech (i think that's what its called) that "gives you a shower" without water, and it only takes 3 seconds! There are a lot of images of the kind of people living in that period, women and men who love to constantly have sex, and people are "born" not naturally though birth but more of the concept of stemmed-cell theory. Tedra works as security, also known as SEC 1, the highest honor! She's really cute, knows a lot of kung-fu and self-defense, and at the same time says the word "FARDEN" a lot, which honestly, i still don't know what it means! A problem arises, their government leader is kidnapped by the enemies, and its up to Tedra to save the day, but she needs help from people from other places, for the security people on her planet are disappearing. What ends up happening, is her personal computer "Martha' (who is absolutely hilarious!) sends her to another, get this, PLANET, which is actually, I would say..."back to the past". The time period... is let me just say is in the pre-historic times. Men are huge and have enormous muscles and fight with swords, and shields, and eat animals, with weird names. Here is where Tedra meets Challen, our handsome warrior! How they meet is absolutely amusing, and how they build their relationship is a delight to read! Moreover how Tedra learns about the differences between her time and the time period she's now stuck in, is entertaining, as well as looking from Challen's point of view. Oh! And of course the best part of all, is how the two fall in love. Especially since Challen is so stubborn and repeatedly says "warriors don't fall in love" is funny, since all he demonstrates is love and caring towards Tedra! And for sure there are a lot of stuff that happens, but i don't want to spoil a thing! All i'm going to say is that Challen goes back to the future with Tedra, and he helps her combat and win over the enemies.
A small warning: there is a lot of descriptive writing in Warrior's Woman, for Lindsey, I'm sure did her best in setting out the images of the different time periods for the reader. One might get bored from all the descriptions, but in my opinion I believed it enhanced the overall story of the book. Hope u Enjoy!
