From the Inside Flap
When the women of the City of Mandrigyn, led by Sheera Galernas, hired the mercenary army of Captain Sun Wolf, to help them rescue their men from the mines of evil, he refused. Little did he realize how insistent the ladies could be, and how far they would go to persuade him to train them against the evil of Altiokis....

It did start slowly for me. I'm fact, after the first couple of chapters, I was wondering if I'd made a mistake in purchasing. But after the story got going, I quickly became immersed in the world and the main characters. Not to say that I didn't skip over some of the over detailed paragraphs, but I still enjoyed it.
I'd give it a 3-1/2 Star rating, but since it ended well, I round it up to 4 stars. It's definitely worth reading if you enjoy action filled fantasy with a bit of romance.
- The Silent Tower (The Windrose Chronicles),
- The Silicon Mage (The Windrose Chronicles), and
- Dog Wizard (The Windrose Chronicles)
and her Darwath Trilogy (The Darwath Trilogy: The Time of the Dark, The Walls of Air, and The Armies of Daylight). Those were very good. But, this book, the first of her Sun Wolf and Starhawk series:
- The Ladies of Mandrigyn (The Sun Wolf and Starhawk),
- The Witches of Wenshar (The Sun Wolf and Starhawk), and
- The Dark Hand of Magic (The Sun Wolf and Starhawk)
is better. The Windrose and the Darwath series were very similar to each other in characterizations, theme, and style. The books in each series were more like chapters than stand-alone books. "The Ladies of Mandrigyn" can stand on its own in its series and the characterizations and style have a bit of a Glen Cook "Tyranny of the Night" feel to them. As with "Windrose" and "Darwath," the main characters in "Ladies" are very well done and interesting. The secondary characters, though, are a bit better here. In the other series, the secondary characters were very archetypical for a Fantasy (you practically knew what they would say just by the roles they were filling). The secondaries here have more independence from the Fantasy genre, but they do tend to stick heavily to their roles. Even so, overall, I rate this book at an Excellent 5 stars out of 5.
I fell in love with Star Hawk and Sun Wolf.
Why its missing a star: I did feel the connection between Hawk and Wolf was obvious but then was just like BLAM. (I am trying to be vague as to not as spoilers)
ALSO SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER (well sort of) Was disappointed in Alitokis. Thought if he was more like Roose Bolton or Borg he would have definitely unnerved me more.
Nuuwa were totally creepy though. Kudos on that.
