Wilson ↠ When she was a child the author of When Women Were Warriors happily identified with all the male heroes she read about in stories that began Once uponShe will ever become a competent swordswoman To make matters worse the Lady Merin assigns her the position of companion little than a personal servant to a woman who came to Merin's house seemingly out of nowhere the previous winter and this stranger wants nothing to do with Tamra There's something captivating in this book the language the tales the girl tells the traditions of a tribe It all feels important it has substance The imagery my brain came up with was something I've not felt for a long time while reading a book And even though it's lacking in other areas like describing the world which is not explained all that much and leaves the readers to fill in the blanks themselves I found it all engaging nonetheless 4 stars for a solid coming of age story

When she was a child the author of When Women Were Warriors happily identified with all the male heroes she read about in stories that began Once upon a time a young man went out to seek his fortune But she would have been delighted to discover even one story like that with a femal I was expecting epic battles and stories of fierce female warrior legends but this has none of that I guess I have just grown used to that formula from other conventional sci fi books This story is refreshingly calmer with only semi dramatic events It is a nice break from the lone prophecized hero destined to save the world from ultimate evil This is of how life once might have been in a matriarchial society and the timeless lessons we have forgotten in today's mans world I am captivated with CW's portrayal of the old world celtic culture her imagery of their customs and divinity She paints such a picturesue story of these warrior women and their camraderies Its a such a simple way of life with so many depths of love and devotion I also love how she weaved in folklore storytelling into the book I have always been enthralled with storytelling from elders of all walks of life and even now it still gives me a sense of home This was a lovely read for meI do also want to alert readers that this may not be your cup of tea if you are not one of an open mind or open heart It has a few same sex scenes which is not for the prude of heart Also if you are of a 2 dimensional person rather than a multifaceted person you will not grasp the true brilliance of this story or its allegories This has no teen angst Twilight junk

The Warrior's Path When Women Were Warriors Book 1E protagonist Since she never did find the story she was looking for all those years ago she decided to write itIn Book I of the trilogy Tamras arrives in Merin's house to begin her apprenticeship as a warrior but her small stature causes many including Tamras herself to doubt that There's nothing I value in what I read or watch than when character development is clearly the priority in the story rather than plot development For starters this book doesn't even have an overarching storyline; a part of me kept waiting for a major plot to begin at some point and last until the end of the book but it didn't and I was so gladThe focus is completely on the women of all ages and all their different backgrounds and the importance of the small storylines lies entirely in how they affect these characters the dynamics between them and Tamras’s journey to become a warrior And she doesn’t need to be the one destined to save her kingdom from all evil or something in order for the story to be interesting She can learn valuable lessons while just helping watch out for cattle raidersI had never before read another book with so many kinds of relationships between women and all of them so well developed It’s all about friends mothers and daughters leaders mentors and mentees and lovers I especially liked Tamras and Maara’s relationship and how both of them consistently contributed to it as one could often teach the other different things and they would always look out for each other the same wayOne last thing it was so refreshing to see how well Tamras and Maara were able to communicate I appreciated the break from all the drama and angst caused by the characters’s poor communication skills in other stories The two of them talk about everything and rarely have trouble being honest with each other about what’s upsetting or confusing them No misunderstandings are left unclarified no falling outs left unresolved and that allowed their relationship to evolve healthily so that Tamras learned to fully trust her warrior as any other companion or apprentice should be able toNeedless to say I’m starting the second book straight away while already worrying about what I’m going to do when I’m done with this trilogy
