Branwen is the princess in this story, but not like any other princess you would normally think of.  She is strong and adventurous and came to see herself as a warrior when her brother is brutally murdered.  Fearing for their daughters safety, Branwen's parents send her away to safe place where princesses are surrounded in luxury and forbidden to do anything unladylike.  Defying her elders, she goes into battle because she knows that she will forfill her destiny by doing so.  This book is a fun, light-hearted book that teenagers will love.  The action and attitude of the young rebellious princess is one that teens can identify with.  This book begs for a sequel!

This
book was so/so. The plot was a little predictable and I couldn't
connect with the character. The emotions seemed too fast and then went
away just as quickly. Also, the character relationships weren't in-depth. They were just as fast as the plot and emotions. The author had a great idea for a story, but it did not meld together as it should have.  I just didn't feel this book like I do most
books. It didn't draw me. Not sure if I'll read the next one in the
series when it comes out.

I've always enjoyed Frewin's other series, the Faerie Path books so I was obviously very excited to see that there was a new series coming out by her.

But honestly, I thought Warrior Princess fell kind of flat. Very cheesy and completely cliche.

However, despite the cliche-ness, I still managed to quite enjoy this book. Hello, warrior princess? It's like Xena and everyone loves Xena, right? :)

The plot was okay, I guess. It's the typical adventure-warrior type of book where a certain person has a tragic thing happen, manages to become better and ends up saving the day.

But that's not what I enjoyed. I enjoyed reading about Branwen. Even though her character itself is very cliche, I liked how she changed from a regular fifteen-year-old girl into a mature woman who is willing to defend her family and her people. I admire her greatly because of her courage and her determination. She doesn't let things slow her down, instead, she meets it head on and faces whatever difficulties that needs to be faced.

Frewin's writing style is exquisite as usual. It's very descriptive but not enough where it exhausts the readers which is a very good thing.

The ending though has a lot of loose ends so hopefully the second book can answer them.

Overall, Warrior Princess is a great fantasy read and I'm sure lots of fantasy lovers would come to enjoy this book.
