I absolutely loved this novella. The dialogue was on point and the action was great. I’ll do my best to be spoiler free, the way the tribesmen spoke to each other and the internal dialogue they had was incredible.
Men trying their hardest to win esteem and be useful at the same time. (Funny how that’s always the case!) The action and fights were swift and fierce, but did not devolve into grotesque montages of gore
All in all not only would I read it again, I’d recommend it to anyone ages 13+
The loss of a star is due to some polishing and editorial errors that do not detract from the story itself. I’d give it 4.5 stars in total.
