How do you kill a god?
As her father’s chosen heir, eighteen-year-old Rasmira has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. But when her coming-of-age trial is sabotaged and she fails the test, her father banishes her to the monster-filled wilderness with an impossible quest: to win back her honour, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year or die trying.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 4 Stars
First, Tricia hooks me with a duology about a badass Pirate Queen, and now she has a book about an incredible Norse inspired Warrior? Sometimes I wish that I were younger so that I could read these books as a teenager – Levenseller’s characters would’ve made great role models. Alas, I am almost thirty (cringe), so instead I’ll just have to focus on how amazing it is to read about truly amazing female leads in books.
As was the case with DOPK and DOTSQ, Warrior of the Wild was a quick read for me. I was surprised by a package from Macmillan when I woke up when morning, and by lunch I had devoured this book. All of Levenseller’s books are the absolute perfect cure for any reading slump. They’re action packed and pick up quickly, they aren’t too long, and they flow really well. There was literally no point in this book that dragged for me.
Rasmira was an interesting and complex character whose growth over the course of the book felt organic and real. The slow burn romance made me swoon, and I loved the friendships that formed over the course of the novel as well.
My Takeaway: With a positive overall message, and a plot that flows seamlessly, Levenseller has become an auto-buy author for me. I highly recommend any of her books if you need something light and quick to read!
