Warrior of the Wild

Warrior of the Wild

by Tricia Levenseller

18-year-old Rasmira has always been both praised and scorned for her talents. As her father's chosen heir, she has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. Fortunately, her long wait is almost over and after she passes her coming-of age trial, she'll finally be able to live on her own and not have to deal with her mother's constant rejection, or the jealousy of her peers. Perhaps then she will be able to be both a warrior and a woman. 

But when trial day arrives, everything goes terribly wrong. Her test is sabotaged, and by law all those who fail are banished and given an impossible quest to reclaim their honor in death. And Rasmira is given the most difficult quest of them all: She must kill the oppressive deity who claims tribute from her village every year or die in the attempt. 

Rasmira sets off into the wild, but outside she finds more than just savage beasts. Two boys with twisted pasts and different skills faced similar banishments the previous year and are now living in the wild until they can attempt their own impossible quests. And despite herself, Rasmira begins to hope that by working together they might all accomplish the impossible.
