Henina's non-stop talking was often humorous to me as the reader although it generally offended everyone she came into contact with in the story but yet Henina did not use any foul language or do anything that made me feel dirty or disgusted to be reading the story (kudos to Ms. Sorensen on keeping the story clean). Henina definitely had great ideas about what should be done although she was severely lacking in grace and diplomacy so people didn't tend to like to hear the ideas.
In addition to the clever character of Henina, I want to point out the clever chapter titles in this story. Each one uses a number increasing from 1 to 21. It was very interesting, when I realized after the first couple chapters that the titles were important, to see what was going to happen in the chapter based on the title. Don't skip over the title as you read each chapter.
This was a fun story to read even for myself who is considerably over the 'young adult' target audience.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
But as they search the crowd, 24 females were found with stars on their hand – at least one even drawn in with a pen! The king was dismayed since this prophecy would not be easy to unravel now. But he set his soothsayer to the task of training the ladies in warfare skills to lead their army to victory… maybe?
This was a fun book! Henina is a funny, quirky, wonderful character that will immediately charm the reader – (or the reader may choose to strangle her instead). She speaks her mind with courage, even to the king. And she speaks incessantly, much to everyone’s dismay! She is alert and notices the smallest of details -- part of her pickpocket skillset, no doubt. She even taught herself to read, when practically all of the other girls were never taught. Reading her story will keep the reader laughing, but intrigued enough to keep going to find out what she’s up to next! I definitely recommend this adorable story. You’ll also find it in the “Myths & Legends” box set.
"Chapter 5: Five Minutes Later, When My Patience Snapped
Chapter 16: Sixteen Possible Traitors, and One Maybe
Chapter 19: Nineteen Liars Faking a Surrender"
hooked me and the whole story was just as fun, snarky, and intelligent. I don't believe this author gets enough credit for her wit and snark.
The protagonist, Henina, is considered annoying by almost every person she meets but it's easy to see why people tolerate her; it's pretty much impossible for her to be a bad person or lie. I don't even know if she's capable of duplicity because she says absolutely everything on mind. It's easy to like her as a reader too because she is clearly intelligent and her snark is so much fun to witness.
The other characters were diverse and memorable as well.
I would say that one criticism I have is that the story is only a little over 100 pages so I'm unsure if the other books will be long enough to really support any character depth or character growth.
I love that Sorensen writes clean stories but my worry is that all the books in this series may blend together and never grow into "real" characters but stay sort of static and unchanging. This can easily get boring, but honestly I'm not sure if this series will get boring since there's enough fun, fast paced adventures and giggle-inducing conversation to keep me hooked.
I will certainly be reading the sequel when it's available!
*I volunteered to read and honestly review a eARC of this story*
