I love this book. It has all of the elements to captivate the reader right from the start. Rowan is on a path of life that is disrupted. Now we get to see generations and legacies challenged. Oh what decision to make!!!! Then the book leaves you at a cliff hanger and I can’t wait for book 2. Characters are very developed and real. Location is real and you can see it clearly in your mind.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rowan Pendragon and her cousin Davin have found themselves in a bit of a sticky situation, as usual, they have been caught trying to smuggle a few bottles of vodka from the neighbouring realm of Socaria into their homeland of Lochlann after their only way back was blocked and they resorted to travelling through a tunnel for days with nothing but the vodka, only to wake up in a Socarian dungeon. As they slowly wake up and come to the realisation that their predicament is worse than just waking up with a hangover, their captor comes to inform them of the crimes they have permitted and the sentence that they carry, the penalty of death, however, when Rowan reveals their identities, they are moved into more suitable accommodation and invited to join the clan leader and his brother for dinner later on that evening.

It is during the conversation that Rowan learns that the women here are to be seen and not heard and when she agrees to have her future decided by a Summit of the Clans, she makes the case that they should be lenient with her cousin as he is her guard and not actually high in the ranking of their society, they agree, but on the principle that she behaves like a proper Socarian princess would. The only point which rankles Rowan is that she will not be able to create and read a statement of reasoning for what she did and put it before the Summit herself, only a male and one of the ruling party of a Clan can do that, much to her disappointment.

As they leave for the Summit, Rowan reluctantly leaves her cousin behind at the palace where they were being held, at least she knows that one of them will return to their family and tell them the truth of what happened so that they can get closure whatever the decision of the Summit may be. Davin is not in the least happy about the situation and wishes that he could go with her like always and watch her back, however, Rowan insists on it and he acquiesces in the end. As they travel, Rowan gets to know her captors and their family more, as well as the customs, rules and laws which she will have to obey on her journey, however, as she does this, something changes between her and her captor.

Will Rowan be able to face the Summit and take their decision and see it through, what will their decision be and how will it affect her and her captor, will they have to fight for a future they want, or will it become too much of a barrier to them? This is a historical romance with rivalry, hierarchical challenges and family feuds galore which will pull you along as the story progresses as you fight for their future along with them.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this book after giving into peer pressure. I had to see what this book everyone was raving about. I’m sure glad I did. I love this firey princess named Rowan. She reminds me so much of my favorite Disney princess named Merida. Rowan has this strength about her that most heroines don’t start out with. She breaks down those walls like they’re nothing. She knows she doesn’t need protecting and when it comes to Theo, she realizes that she wants it, not out of necessity, but because she geninuinly wants it. Without giving too much away, if you are on the fence about this book like I was, you will not regret reading it. I know I didn’t. I’m waiting impatiently for the 2nd book to come out soon, and time isn’t going fast enough! I can’t wait to see what’s in store next for my favorite badass warrior princess!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Scarlet princess is the First book in a new series taken place after the Lochlann Series. The good news is you can read this without having read the other series. Rowan is an adventurous and interesting character. She attracts danger to her like a magnet. When she gets captured by another territory because she was purchasing something from a smuggler for her sister, she finds out that there is no way home for at least six months due to the weather. She is stuck with her captures. While there she falls for him. I absolutely loved this book. I love historical/fantasy romance. I can’t wait to read the next book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Scarlet Princess is a sweet fantasy romance book. The descriptive writing style of these authors really enhances the story for me. They have created a world in which I would like to live in. There is drama, danger, history, and adventure. The characters are built up to make you want to be in their world with them. This is Rowan’s story. Rowan is the Scarlet Princess. There is a place for everyone in this story and Rowan knows her place. However, she is in a relationship with someone you would not think would be possible. The story has twists and turns, ups and downs, and ins and outs. I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens with Rowan. .

I can see why this book has such wonderful ratings. It is quite the story and it easily drew me completely into their world. What a great concept this story began with..stealing does have consequences. The characters are developed nicely. I really *felt* for and with Rowan. I was hopeful, shocked and surprised while reading her story. She is a strong female character and I enjoyed watching her deal with her fate. Secondary characters are just a lively as Rowan. While I came to love some….others are surprisingly devious and possibly unlikable.

This is one of the reasons I enjoy YA books. The characters are highly entertaining and the world they live in is well developed. I can not wait for the next in the series!

This book was absolutely phenomenal! I started reading it with anticipation at this story from the start, and it did not ever disappoint! This princess being taken captive is certainly a surprise due to her demeanor. The story itself made me long for the content included in the remainder of the series. I must admit that I will wait in great anticipation until the next book arrives! I am interested to see how her family plays out their life events at the loss of their princess, and hope they react to her capture. I am also of course anxious to know the actions of her original captors! I’m on edge until the next story!!! I literally did not want to put this amazing book down! Every chapter held my heart in knots!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Scarlet Princess threw me back into my childhood and it was glorious. This book is something I would have read when I was a teenager. Actually to this day as well. It was action filled. A fairy tale with a twist.

I absolutely love the way Princess Rowan was written. She reminded me of Merida from Disney’s Brave. She was witty, sarcastic, strong, an outcast but still nothing got her down. Even after thrust into enemy lands, Socaira, with her life on the line, it never slowed her down.

Theodore, who is Rowans keeper while in Socaira, is very uptight as is all of the people from there but Rowan brings a new light to his life. The couple seem to start falling for each other even though they are supposed to hate each other.

One thing I really loved about this book is it was not love at first sight like a lot of fairy tales, the relationship built up as time went on.

Honestly this book is one of my favorites I have read in 2021! Can’t wait for more!

Scarlet Princess (Lochlann Feuds Book 1) by Robin D. Mahle and Elle Madison – Review by Melissa Saxton
5/5 stars!
Ready to fall in love with a character? Rowan is a feisty, witty, no nonsense princess who cannot stay out of trouble and feels rules are made to be broken, but one reckless adventure leads her and her cousin in enemy territory.
Rowan will question everything she knows as she tries to get out of the mess she’s in. her inner sparky dialog is delightful as she wades through emotions, realization, smoldering affection she didn’t expect with the enemy.

the cliffhanger leaves you breathless and ready for more. fans of fantasy adventure and strong female story leads will love this book!
