I really enjoyed this book. It reads like an adventure or a quest story, sort of a journey. Lots of training, marching, hanging about the camp, making new friends, that kind of thing. Their captain is a woman, but it would have been nice to have something approaching equal numbers. I also liked that this is not a romance. Kind of a refreshing change. I wish that the author had included a few paragraphs near the beginning to catch new readers like me up to speed with this series. There was nothing in here about how Meg met her traveling companions, about the general, about this new truce with the monsters.
Also a map would have been helpful, but then I always want a map! Now for more serious criticism.
While I liked the pacing of the story, I felt like the writing was a little choppy and the dialogue needed a little work. Maybe quit talking and just concentrate on fighting. If you enjoy fantasy and action, I think you should give this one a try. I would definitely start with book 1, The Golden Dawn. She may be short, but she is powerful and can stand her ground against enemies.
Meg and Patrick another hunter are offered work for a military group. Soon She discovers a sword, a very mysterious object that is about to challenge her skills and stamina. Young Meg is very likable, her short stature is thought of as weakness, but to her it is her strength.

The plot moves at a fast pace, with originality, action, adventure and thrills. I was pulled into the story from the first page, and truly could not put it down. I highly recommend to all. A definite all-night read! Oct 06, CorrieGM rated it it was ok.
Nice fantasy. A lot of fighting which I, strangely enough, liked. The writing certainly is not perfect. Things happen too slow. I cannot believe the military would react on critical remarks of an underling.

But all in all, there were important feelings and lessons to be learned. Jul 17, Rikudou En added it Shelves: After reading this book, i would not be an epic contract killer for any reason. The fantasy was there, but the brutality still remain. I like this book, and will recomend this to anyone who love epic adventure.
