Sassinak was 12 when the raiders came. That made her just the right age: old enough to be used, young enough to be broken. Or so the slavers thought. But Sassy turned out to be a little different from your typical slave girl. Maybe it was her unusual physical strength. Maybe it was her friendship with the captured Fleet crewman. Maybe it was her spirit. Whatever it was, it wouldn't let her resign herself to the life of a slave. She bided her time, watched for her moment. Finally it came, and she escaped.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator - or at least his pronunciation of names -- VERY grating when the title character's name is pronounced wrong: SUH - sin - ick instead of SASS - i - nack even though pronounced shortened name correctly "Sass"!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

mispronounced names, especially title character

Do you think Sassinak needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Need unabridged version of book 3 of series (Generation Warriors).
