"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."

My Thoughts:

This was so good. I had a feeling I was going to enjoy this one, but I didn’t expect it to be as unputdownable as it was. This had such an engaging plot with great characters. Our heroine in particular is fantastic.  I enjoyed this authors Daughter Of The Pirate King series and I’m glad she delivered here too. She writes such incredible and dynamic heroines. 

Rasmira is fantastic and I loved her. She is so smart and so strong. She has trained her whole life to be a warrior and lead her village and it’s made her a bit of a target. When she is betrayed and cast out she doesn’t want to trust again and who can blame her. She is more than capable of taking care of herself, but when she meets up with some other outcasts she really starts to shine and proves that she was meant to lead. And this brings me to Soren who I just adored. He was such a sweetheart and I loved his wit. He’s just adorable to put it simply. But he’s also a warrior in his own right. And I also love Iric and these three made a good team. What I loved most about the dynamic though is that Rasmira is the leader. The boys were surviving but it's Rasmira who really pushes them and brings them to another level. She’s the strong one and the leader and neither of the boys balk at it, but they admire her and respect her for it. Strong women are not something to be feared and I loved that these guys acknowledged that. This author really writes a great heroine. I adored Alosa and I adored Rasmira just as much.

I also loved the Vikings vibe. I finally binged Vikings recently so this was perfect for my mood. I want to be clear, this book isn’t about actual Vikings but the world is definitely inspired by Viking lore and myths. It made for a really dynamic plot with a bunch of action, but it was also about finding yourself and who you want to be and the story balanced that really well. And then there was a touch of romance that I just LOVED SO MUCH. The story just balanced these aspects all so well.

Warrior Of The Wild delivered in every single way. Fantastic characters and a fantastic plot and STRONG WOMEN TAKING CHARGE FOR THE WIN. My feminist heart was so happy with this book and I can’t wait to see what this author does next.
