When I picked this book up I kind of snickered at the size of it - it was a silly little 200 page book! However, this was hands down one of the best books I have read in quite some time. It is meant to be read slowly and its imagery commands to be savored. What a tale of female strength, change, belief and community! This was the type of book that made me shiver with its last sentence. It's empowering, endearing, and is a raw story of what it means to be a woman with unlocked potential and truly describes a metamorphosis. Love, love, loved it - just read it!!

I enjoyed both the characters and the idea of a female army that took itself seriously. It wasn't about mimicing men, but the realities of combat.
