Look. I’m going to be straightforward here. I have not been in the mood to type anything for this blog in months. I started 2019 strong by writing up a bunch of review posts but have dwindled on my enjoyment of them. Despite this, my reading hasn’t changed and I’ve got quite a few books I still want to review so here we go.
Warrior of the Wild
Genre: YA Fantasy
This is a simple review. This was a relatively simple book. It was a fun read, but a simple one. Rasmira is hoping to follow in her warrior father’s footsteps and rule over her town one day. That is the path she chose as a child and now her trial is upon her to prove she is deserving of that title and to make her father proud. However, she is sabotaged during her trial and subsequently banished from her village with an expectation to return from an impossible task: killing a God.
This wasn’t overly complicated as I’ve already mentioned. You don’t have to know much about mythology or Gods or even warriors. This story felt like it had just enough character growth to be believable and I do have to admit I didn’t see the ending coming. There is a “romance” though it is not the main focus of the story and allowed me to focus on how in the world Rasmira was going to KILL A GOD.
I enjoyed the pacing of the story and definitely felt disappointment whenever I had to set this book down to sleep or eat (petty human tasks, tsk tsk). Minor complaints were around the surprise at the end which felt like an unnecessary jolt, and the way in which Rasmira interacted with her family which I felt completely disconnected to during the entire story.
Overall – great, easy, simple, fun read. Would recommend if you’re looking for something fun but not overly complicated!
