Book synopsis:

Loyalty and friendship define Hannah Anders, an uncommon young woman fighting for freedom and family. A skilled warrior trained by the Comanche, Hannah’s journey begins in October 1835, when the stirrings of revolution are first heard in the Mexican territory called Texas. She follows her mentor, the infamous James Bowie, into battle.

My review:

So along with my fantasy/sci-fi obsession, I also love historical fiction. For some reason, reading a historical fiction book gives me a case of the warm fuzzies. And this book is no exception. It has a little romance in it, a lot of action and a ton of the legendary James Bowie, which I found fascinating.

I loved the fact that the author made Hannah an oddball. I mean, a Comanche trained female warrior? I also liked that the author made Hannah relatable too. Abusive childhood with awful dad still around, check. Torn between two loves, check. Self harms whenever she kills someone, check. Pushes everyone away, check.

While I liked Will’s character, I do wish that he acted more like a man. I loved that he kept getting friend zoned by Hannah until the middle of the book. For some reason, it kept giving me the giggles. I also liked his Uncle. You need to read the book to understand why I loved him!!!

Morgan, I couldn’t stand. He rubbed me the wrong way. Not going to give away anything (read the book!!!) but if BK left me after something signifigant happened to me, I would be fighting mad. I wanted to smack Hannah upside her head and say “Girlfriend, he’s no good. Move on!!”

Will, I reread this? Yes, yes, yes!!!!! Even though it ends in a cliffhanger…which, I detest.

Will, I recommend this to family and friends? Absolutely!!!

If you do decide to buy the book (which I highly recommend you do), I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!!
