Audie Award Finalist, Fantasy, 2014
Jane Carver, a hell-raising, redheaded biker chick from Coral Gables, Florida, had found a new life and love on Waar, a savage planet of fearsome creatures and swashbuckling warriors. Until the planet’s high priests sent her back to Earth against her will. But nobody keeps Jane from her man, even if he happens to be a purple-skinned alien nobleman. Against all odds, she returns to Waar, only to find herself accused of kidnapping the Emperor’s beautiful daughter. Allying herself with a band of notorious sky-pirates, Jane sets out to clear her name and rescue the princess, but that means uncovering the secret origins of the Gods of Waar and picking a fight with the Wargod himself. Good thing Jane is always up for a scrap....
Swords of Waar is the wildly entertaining sequel to Jane Carver of Waar, and continues the raucous adventures of science fiction’s newest and most bad ass space heroine.


Audible Editor Reviews

The sequel to Jane Carver of Waar, Swords of Waar: Jane Carver, marks the return of Jane Carver, space badass extraordinaire. In this thrilling episode Jane must attempt to clear her name of a kidnapping charge by allying herself with a band of fearsome sky-pirates. Unfortunately, there is a chance that Jane might piss off a few gods in the process.… Dina Pearlman is the perfect actor to embody Jane's swarthy and irreverent attitude. Pearlman's voice performance captures the humor and swagger that buoy every word of author Nathan Long's fierce heroine.


What the Critics Say

"Dina Pearlman gives Jane a gravelly Midwestern accent as she spits out her curt, no-nonsense dialogue like machine-gun fire. In contrast, Pearlman gives Lahn, the purple-skinned nobleman Jane falls for, a deep, urbane voice, dramatizing the phenomenon that opposites attract. As Jane finds her way from Earth back to Waar (Mars) to save Lahn, Pearlman never falters in bringing forth the raunchy bite of this high adventure. Hitting the ground running from the opening sentence, it's perfect escapist listening for a summer road trip." (AudioFile)

She's Baaaaack!

Jane was determined to return to Waar and find her purple-skinned alien lover. She manages to find her way back (barely), but finding him isn't easy. Then when she does find him, she's not sure she wants him after all! This sequel to Jane of Waar is just as good. This tough babe isn't one to let aliens with purple skin push her around, so she sets out to change the world - by finding and freeing up all the water that was stolen by....oh wait, sorry, no spoilers, you'll have to read it to find out!

- Sheila A. Sherwin "A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!"

Nathan Long nails it again

This is the second of the Jane Carver of Waar books, and it is just as engaging as the first. The narration is perfect for all the characters, but particularly for Jane, the red-headed biker chick who falls in love with a purple guy from another planet.
