The book started off strong but got really slow in the middle. I had to force myself to keep listening for several chapters, but then it picked back up. Something that got on my nerves a little was the use of modern slang and sayings for a historical story.
The narrator did a good job of putting emotion into the story, but the guys' voices were terrible. All the voices (girl or guy) were low, lower, and lowest. It was hard to distinguish them.

What made the experience of listening to Warrior's Revenge the most enjoyable?
It was your typical medieval romance but there were a few surprises in there and I found it entertaining. I liked the heroine just fine - I think her flaws were a result of her sheltered life and evil uncle. The narrator wasn't my favorite (didn't care for her accent and starts/stops in odd places) but she wasn't bad. Oh and the cover picture is weird since the hero was a baron and granted he was basically a war lord, but the descriptions mention tunic and leggings. Anyway, I thought it was a good value for the price I paid.

First of all, just a quick note to the narrator - the word stifle is pronounced with a long 'i'. Since this was a word that was used often, it was annoying to keep hearing it mispronounced.
Now with regards to the story, I confess to being a little confused as to which audience it was intended for. The thoughts and motivations and reactions of the characters are those of teenagers and would have suited a YA audience. But some of the more intimate scenes were a little too long and detailed for a YA audience. I liked the premise of the story, but the characterizations simply did not ring true. Consequently, I would not recommend this book to either a youth or adult audience - nothing else is left. Sorry.
Finally, a note to the author - try to avoid using quite so many clichés and redundancies in your phrasing. It feels as if you've swallowed a thesaurus!
