I was so interested in reading this novel because it reminded me of Mulan’s story. I don’t know why but I love to read about stories like Joan of Arc or Mulan because they had a special intrigue to me even when I was younger.
Anyway, let me stop blabbering! This novel started out pretty well and it had a very interesting start. I was interested in how the novel began in giving some background with the main character and her family.
The main character’s journey was pleasant enough but as it got further along in the story I was slowly losing interest. I kept waiting for that “big” moment to be wowed by this novel but sadly it never came.
As for the hero, I was not impressed.
I still am a big fan of Kim Sawyer’s novels but to say the least, this was not my favorite novel written by her. However I’m still a big fan of her writing and I’m looking forward to whatever this author has to offer.
