The Dragon Warrior and the Princess is a romantic fantasy that takes place in a distant future full of wonder and danger. Aurelia is a princess in a very difficult situation. In fact, when The Dragon Warrior and the Princess opens, she has been left for dead in a garbage ship and been dumped on Quisquiliae, a frozen planet used as a garbage disposal site. So much for an ecologically sound future. There she meets Layaz Warrior. Now this guy is interesting. He has been created through genetic engineering to be a perfect warrior and serve the royal line, so of course he is above average in physical beauty and physical prowess. They can also change into dragons if their human perfection can’t overcome a problem. The dragon side can handle just about anything. With her father dead and his political rival Paiden in firm control of everything, Aurelia finds herself with one soldier, albeit a very good one, to help her defeat Paiden and win her rightful crown.

The charm of The Dragon Warrior and the Princess is not the do or die struggle for power, but the relationship between the Dragon Warrior and the princess. They are alike in one crucial thing that unfortunately causes friction between them more than it brings them together. Having both been raised in isolated, controlled environments with limited types of social interaction, they have to work out every tiny aspect of their interaction. This is a very useful device for shining the spotlight on their inevitable romance. I enjoyed watching and wondering if anything substantial would happen, and I guess that is the essence of a romance novel. A good quick read if you like your sci-fi with a splash of romance.
