Hey guys! Finally back with a little review of Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller: I had really enjoyed Daughter of the Pirate King by the same author, and here again, she portrays a pretty awesome female character, mixing so well Viking vibes, fantastic beats, and very modern topics! I loved it all 😉
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 honor, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year—or die trying.
This is a maaan’s world
Rasmira has everything: she is strong and smart and brave. She is also kind-hearted and pretty awesome with an ax. Problem is? She is a she. And in her village, even as the daughter of the chief, she is seen as not worthy enough. Even leaving aside being a woman to fully embrace being a warrior is not enough. And all this jealousy around her will lead her to be betrayed and chased from her village. In the Wild, dangerous creatures running around, ready to kill you every second. But it will also be a chance for Rasmira to grow and go on a very personal quest, that will teach her to trust herself, to love and to endure, and above all, that she is capable of anything and everything!
Enter the Wild at your own risk
Big part of the book is the Wild, this nature full of dangers and wonders where Rasmira is banished to. We meet dangerous creatures, but also unexpected friends there. Just like Soren and Iric, two young men casted our of their village who will reveal themselves both allies and pains in the ass 😂. I loved how Rasmira discovers slowly how to survive in the Wild, to do what was supposed to be impossible: from killing mythical beasts to understanding the secrets of nature… and even attempting to kill a god! I did not see the pages go as we were in the Wild, it was so entertaining! Dangerous, scary and deathly sometimes, but fantastic too!
In a few words
If you are looking for a badass female character, for quests involving mythical animals and Viking-like settings, you are going to L-O-V-E Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller. I know I did 😉
See you for a cup,
