Review – Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller


Title Warrior of the Wild

Author Tricia Levenseller

Description from Amazon

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 honor, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year or die trying.

Initial Thoughts

I totally dropped the ball with this book.  I didn’t preorder it and I will admit that was a mistake.  I literally have no idea why I waited so long to read/order this one.  I loved Tricia Levenseller’s other books so this should have been a no-brainer.

Favorite Character

Iric – I loved his sassiness.  I wish he had been a more prominent character (but I understand why he wasn’t).  He was the perfect balance to Soren and Rasmira.  I would love to see a spin-off/sequel featuring Iric and Aros.

Cover Art

I like this cover.  The ax is different and I like the colors.  There is both literal and symbolic meaning featured.  Also, I like that you can really tell that this book is viking inspired.

Final Thoughts

I loved this book.  It was quick read and it was so well done.  Just enough detail to get the story across with characters that left me wanting more.  I would read anything else that Tricia Levenseller writes and anything else set in this world.


Recommendations for Further Reading

  • Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young – if you like vikings and bad-ass heroines, definitely check this book out.  So many similar themes and both books are so good!
  • Daughter of the Pirate King and Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller – I love, love, love Tricia’s writing style.  This series was totally different plot-wise, but has the same feeling in the writing.  If you liked Warrior of the Wild, definitely check out her other books.
  • Beasts of the Frozen Sun by Jill Criswell – this book has not been released yet but it’s amazing and it’s definitely comparable to Warrior of the Wild.  Both are viking-inspired stories with gods, romance, and kick-ass leading ladies.
