Where to begin?
A page turner to no end, this story draws you in immediately. Sonja is an intelligent, wise, thoughtful, compassionate, vengeful and bloodthirsty warrior, who shows strong emotion and passion throughout, while battling her demons within. The story contains many twists, turns and surprises that kept me on the edge of my seat, and guessing until the end. We also have great dialogue, excellent pacing, beautiful scenery and incredible action scenes.
Her companions were remarkable as well. I can't think of one of them, who didn't commit a selfless act at some point. Like with Sonja, we learn what drives, motivates, and haunts them. They care about each other, and that makes us care more about them. Character development was across the board.
In the end, the convergence between everything and everyone was unbeatable, with all the characters having some sort of reckoning.
The bad guys were cool too.
All and all, one of the best fantasy books I've ever read.
I will definitely read more in the series.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Red Sonja, like the more famous Xena, is a female warrior who travels the world in search of adventure. This character made her first appearence as a supporting player in the Conan the Barbarian comics. She quickly made the grade and was spun off into her own comics, and then a novel series, this being the first of said series. In this novel, Red Sonja joins good King Olin on his quest to destroy the evil sorcerer(is there any other kind?)who destroyed his city. To kill the sorcerer, they must first possess the fabled ring of Ikribu. While on their quest, they are confronted with zombies, black magic, and traitors. All of this is standard fare in sword and sorcery stories, but, it's alot of fun to see the lead character being a strong intelligent female as opposed to the usual muscular clod. As an extra bonus, readers are treated to a truley gorgeous cover courtesy of renowned fantasy artist Borris. The only problem readers will have is finding a copy of this book. It is long out of print and may not be available in local used bookstores or libraries. However, if you go to the trouble of finding a copy, you won't be disappointed.

This is a refreshing book for those who are tired of the same old cliche' in fantasy novels ( strong muscle bound oaf takes on the world). It centers on a beautiful, flame tressed woman who happens to be intelligent( heaven forbid!) She is one Red Sonja and she is fantastic reading. Check this out, you won't be dissapointed.
