Audiobook Review: Pillaged (Raider Warlords of the Vandar, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Pillaged by Tana Stone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was promised against my will to an imperial general. . .so I escaped. Right into the arms of an even more ruthless Vandar warlord.

I’d thought things had been bad when I’d been ordered to marry the repulsive Zagrath general. But then I’d been captured by the empire’s most deadly enemy–the Vandar raiders. With their battle kilts and tails, the raiders are known for being fierce warriors who never take prisoners. Until now.

The fear I feel when I’m taken by the menacing Vandar warlord is confirmed when I discover why he treats me like an honored guest. Taking the general’s bride is one thing, but to strike the most personal blow the Vandar must claim me as his, taking me to his bed until his mating marks appear on my skin and mark me as his true mate.

But he has no intention of forcing me. He wants to make a deal—become his willingly and I will get what I’ve always wanted—my freedom from a loveless, arranged marriage. Can I agree to a deal with the darkly dominant warlord who stokes both my fear and desire? Even if being claimed by the Vandar is only revenge for him and freedom for me, will my heart remain untouched as he pillages my body? And will the general give me up so easily, or will he come for both of us with all the firepower of the empire?


“You haven’t lived until you’ve been tail fucked by a Vandar.”

The Hero: Raas Toraan – younger brother to Raas Kratos and Raas Kaalek. He was trained to be a Raas by his uncle and given his uncle’s horde when his uncle retired to a Vandar hidden community. Toraan has the largest and most technologically advanced Horde.

The heroine: Rachel – a human woman who was raised on one of the alien worlds. Her parents knew from the time of her birth that they would use her to make an arranged marriage that would benefit them. Rachel was to marry an admiral of the Zagrath empire named Kurmog. He is three times her age and she could see the evil in him from the start.

The Story: Rachel escapes the Zagrath ship during a battle with the Vandar and fled to a Vandar horde ship where she asks for asylum. Toraan vows to protect her, especially when Rachel says she will give them information on the Zagrath’s plans for the Vandar.

Like the first two books, this one was dual points of view and done in duet narration. Unlike dual narration, in which a male narrator reads the chapters written from the male perspective and does all the voices in those chapters (both male and female), and vice versa, in duet narration the woman voices all the female characters and the man voices all the males. This is my favorite type of narration and both narrators had extremely pleasant voices and were great narrators.

This book was quite steamy and had a good story. The romance was was intriguing and both main characters had a past that lent more to the story and the romance between them. I plan to read more from this series.
