Raised to be a warrior, 17-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: train to fight and fight to survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield - her brother, fighting with the enemy - the brother she watched die five years ago. Eelyn loses her focus and is captured. Now, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered.

Finally a book where the main character isn’t the chosen one!

I got this book on a whim. It was in every bookstagram post, booktube video, and subscription box. So it had to be good right?
It was so much better then just “good”. I didn’t know what this book would turn into. It always kept me guessing. And like the header said, the main character wasn’t the chosen one and that makes my heart soar.
