Mulan's father never loved her mother, so it wasn't much of a surprise that Mulan didn't feel much towards him, either. Upon his death, Mulan takes his name and his horse, posing as his son in order to fight in the war in her father's place. Prophecised to be a warrior, Mulan sets off to battle, determined to keep her secret and her mother safe. Wolfgang doesn't want to fight his brother at war, but with Steffan determined to be reckless, he can do nothing but watch in despair. When Mikolai, a strange young man, joins his camp at the battle, Wolfgang finds himself thrown into a whirlwind of secrets and unresolved feelings.

Okay, wow! I am absolutely in love with 'The Warrior Maiden'! It has kick-ass characters, epic fight scenes, conflict and an awesome set of lead characters! What more could I honestly ask for in a Historical novel? There was obviously a lot of research done for 'The Maiden Warrior' but it certainly paid off as it was all seamlessly written in to create a diverse and steady pace plot.

Along with the fact that it follows one of my childhood favourite stories, it also demonstrates how desperate families can get to protect one another, and the things that they will do to protect them. I was also given a lot more insight into how these battles went down. I also loved how this novel didn't only focus on Mulan / Mikolai's character, there was a plot behind Steffan and Wolfgang too, which all helped make the ending of the book that much more impactful. 

My verdict, you ask? Read it! This is a wonderful book full of amazing writing and suspenseful plot, and a little bit of romance thrown in the mix. If you enjoy all those things, I certainly recommend this b
