    A dystopian story with twists

    A dystopian view of a world divided into tribes or perhaps small nations. The main character Yolanda is the Matriarch of the Horde who are strong female warriors. She gets the opportunity to meet the King of her neighbouring nation who she's fighting a vicious war with but to her surprise his son the Hammer beheads him and offers her not just his father's head but a chance to save her people from thirst and ultimately death. I liked the ideas behind this although will admit there's very little world building so it wasn't a perfect read for me. I would have liked more information about why they no longer seem to have much technology and also just why they are actually at war ! The second half had a couple of surprises which I really enjoyed and there is romance although it all seemed a bit quick to make declarations of love but I guess in times of conflict and war everything does feel more immediate. What I absolutely hated was the constant reference to Yolanda having snakes squirming in her tummy and yes I understand it was a way to describe her tumultuous feelings and trepidation but surely other descriptions could have been used ? It might not irritate others but sadly I found it repetitive and completely uninspired which was a shame because I did enjoy the overall story and particularly the twists. This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    A Fun, Quick Read

    This was a pretty simple story. Even though it was about two warring nations and had pretty high stakes it focused mostly on the main couple. There was very little world building. It mixed some random modern things with a more primitive setting and there was very little explanation for what was chosen out of each category. I didn’t love the chapters, because they were too short. Usually I prefer lengthy chapters with more complex writing, specially in a Fantasy. Overall, this was a fun quick read. I enjoyed it.
