What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
How do you kill
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.
In this book we’re following Rasmira, she is the sixth daughter, so she is chosen as her father’s heir to lead her village. But during her test to become a warrior she is sabotaged and fails. She is than banned to the woods, to return she has to kill the god, who is harassing the villages. In the woods she finds she is not the only one there. Together with her new made friends, they will try and perform all of their tasks and return home!
I love that this book start with some immediate action! And It actually doesn’t die down throughout the book, the action just rises a bit more at some parts!
The world is quite ‘simple’, so there is not much explanation about it, which in this book I really liked.
I loved the Rasmira was trained as a warrior, and expected to be handled like one, and let no one walk over her! I loved Raz friendship with those found people (bad thing about audiobooks, I have no clue how to write their names, and I cannot find them haha). Also for such a short standalone, the character development is amazing! In the beginning of the book you can definitely see why people do not like her that much, but at the end she has definitely improved for the better.
I took one star since some parts are a bit predictable and that makes the book feel a bit simple. But I enjoyed myself a lot, and that’s the most important part! I recommend this book if you need a bit simpler and fast paced fantasy book!
After I read this I saw people calling this a Viking story. This book is definitely inspired by Norse mythology, you can see that, but to say it is a Viking story..!? I wouldn’t. They use axes, but that’s about it, they are not even on a boat ahha.
