Title Warrior of the Wild
Author Tricia Levenseller
Section Covered Part I – The Trial (Chapters 1-5)
I really enjoyed Daughter of the Pirate King and Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller so picking up Warrior of the Wild seemed like a no-brainer. I’m actually a little surprised that I didn’t preoder this one, given how much I like Tricia’s other books. For whatever reason, I didn’t preorder and I just received a copy from Amazon this week (thank goodness for Prime, am I right?). Since it’s not every day that I find a book neatly broken into parts or acts, I wanted to do a series of read along posts (since Warrior of the Wild is in fact broken into four parts).
Undecided – the first part is only 65 pages long so I haven’t gotten that far into the book to determine who is my favorite character yet. From what I understand so far, Rasmira is the only main character who will be in Part II. And, I do like her, but usually this section is reserved for secondary characters that make a strong impression. So far, in my opinion, none of the secondary characters that have been introduced have earned this title.
Least Favorite Character
Torrin – ugh he’s the worst! I can’t believe that twist right at the end of the trial. I hated it! But, I have to be honest, he did seem shifty. I didn’t want Rasmira to end up with him, but I didn’t want him to betray her either! I thought he was going to be the hometown love interest who gets friend-zoned in favor of the new guy (to be introduced in a later chapter). I didn’t think he’d basically become her enemy. Major props to Tricia Levenseller for surprising me this early on.
Hopes for Part II
More background on the gods and goddesses that govern this society. I’m getting lots of Viking-esque vibes from this story so far and I really like that. I want to know more about Peruxolo and the other gods they worship.
