When she runs afoul of the law, she's left as bait in dragon territory. She only has one chance to survive - to somehow tame a dragon and get it to obey her. A king must stand alone, beholden to none. Agent Ulyssa Payne is on a mission. It's her job to make sure the Medical Mafia leader doesn't leave the planet of Qurilixen. But, when her target is killed by his own daughter, her mission is over. Now, she's stuck on a barbarian planet for three months until the Agency comes to get her. Getting kidnapped by King Attor, she's left in the Var harem to await his return.
But, when the King dies in battle and doesn't come for her, she's stuck dealing with his son, the new savage King of the Var. This is one complication Ulyssa didn't need. The Var Princes were raised by a hard man who put no stock in love - especially love with one woman.
Bred to never take a life mate, these men will do everything in their power to live up to the dead King Attor's expectations and never fall in love. Kirill is a man who must do his duty, only he didn't expect to do it so soon. When his father dies, he knows it's his destiny to be king. What he didn't expect is the troublesome mistress that's now his to deal with. I really loved this story!!
This is my first book by Michelle M. Pillow and will not be the last! I couldn't put it down and tried to hear the whole thing in just one day! The minute that I finished it, I turned back around and started it over. The narration by Michael Ferraiuolo was great!
This one is no different. Pillow is a good writer but she needs to concentrate more on the story and less on the sex. Other than that it was a good book. I especially liked the part where Ulyssa took her first bath ever. She was used to a decontaminator, not an actual a water bath. It was all pretty funny. Wow, I was sure dear-old-dad was dead when the story started.
It was nice watching him slowly come awake, in how to treat the one you love. I liked his brothers, too, but I liked Falke the best. He was the biggest and the blandest of the lot. As mentioned before there was LOTS of sex, and he!! As to the narrator: He really, really laughed when the book called for it. He whispered, groaned, sniffed when Ulyssa was crying.
He was simply superb when it came to his wide variety of emotions. This was my first sci fi shifter story, and I really enjoyed it. I hadn't read the Dragon Lords series first, but I felt like this book was able to stand alone. It had great world building, and I enjoyed the cultural differences between the characters. I loved the humor at the end over the use of the word property. I loved the Var prince brothers and look forward to the stories about the rest of the brothers.
She redeemed herself in most cases, though. I especially liked how her relationship with Falke developed. The narrator did a great job with all the different male characters, giving each a different tone and accent, making it easy to tell who's speaking. However, I didn't enjoy his rendition of the women's voices. Like so many male narrators, his female voices are a bit whiny, especially over time. Really enjoyed this first book of the series Can't wait to read the others.
The story was original and entertaining.
You keep rooting for the new king and his mistress that they will get past their misunderstandings to find love. If you like shifter romance with futuristic overtones and a feisty heroine you will enjoy this book. The narrator has the perfect voice for this story. I like his use of accents.

I am a big fan of Ms. Pillows' stories and I was not disappointed with this one either. I listened to all the Dragon Lords stories and after listening to this one, I am seeing the Var in a new light, it was fun joining Ulyssa and Kirill on their bumpy and sexy journey to HEA I am looking forward to the next stories in the series and learning more about the Var.
Great choice in narrators, new-to-me, Mr. Ferraiuolo did an amazing job as he brought the story to life with various voices and plenty of emotion. I like it when a talented voice brings me into the story and keeps me captive. I adored this book so much I started the rest of the collection. Would you listen to The Savage King: A Dragon Lords Story again?
So, I listened to The Savage King: It was a fun easy listen. Great while driving to work. I liked all the characters too. Lord Vladan, Ealdorman Honorary of the Draig is not like his noble brothers. Adopted into their family after a mining accident killed his parents, he is every bit as titled as his new brothers, and every bit as welcome into the fold.
He loves his family, and will always do as duty demands, but a part of him still yearns to shift into dragon form and run free in the wild. This is how he knows his bride will be the most wild of creatures, for he wants passion, not perfection. Surely the gods are mistaken when they bind him to the most refined, reserved, frustratingly perfect creature in the universe. The Impatient Lord Riona Grey lives life on her own terms, traveling wherever the next spaceship is flying and doing what she must in order to get by.
