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 am loving the viking type stories. Most of them aren’t about real vikings but more of the idea of them. Warrior of the Wild was a book that followed the viking law but was more of a fantasy story set in a viking world. I loved it, while I wasn’t a huge fan of the in your face romance, I thought this was a really exciting read with fun characters.
Rasmira is the chief’s daughter and wasn’t to be a fierce warrior. She will be the first girl in her village to train. Because she is the chief’s daughter she gets special treatment and isn’t liked by her fellow warrior trainees. When she fails her trials she is sent into the wild to preform a dangerous and impossible task…Kill a god.
Look, I loved Daughter of the Pirate King and I love Tricia Levenseller’s writing. This book was no different, I loved it so very much Monsters, annoying boys, romance, humor and lots of action. It was nonstop from the moment the book starts to the very end. I wasn’t a big fan of the romance, I thought it took up to much time and just seemed like you knew it would happen because it was forced on you. Could it have been done different? Sure but I liked the characters enough to cheer them on even if I already knew it was going to happen.
- I thought the characters has a great build and really did spend a lot of time growing that at the end you can see a huge difference from when they started.
- The monsters in the book are just scary and I am glad I wasn’t the one fighting them,
- I wanted the people that wronged Rasmira get a little more punishment.
- The world build wasn’t as great but it was enough to know where you are and get a sense of what it was like.
- The action had me on my toes, I might have wanted to make sure everything turned out ok for all the characters. I was nervous.
Overall, I can’t recommend this book enough. I wasn’t a fan of the romance but I loved the entire book regardless. Action, adventure, humor, romance and lots of monsters. This book was just what I didn’t know I needed. So much fun and such a great read. I can’t wait to see what Mrs. Levenseller has for us next!So much action with romance, humor and scary monsters that make this book a fantastic read! 4.5 stars from Michelle Click To Tweet
