Praise for Warrior of the Wild:

“One of my favorite YA books ever. The action! The world-building! The voice! This book kicks so much ass.” — Cale Dietrich, author of The Love Interest

“Levenseller presents a fully rounded portrait of a girl whose strength in battle is tempered by her very human anxieties. Rasmira’s quest is thrilling, her emotional journey compelling; this adventure sings.” — Booklist

“Levenseller… presents a female warrior who refuses to believe that crying makes one weak and that strength is not feminine. Through Rasmira’s inner monologue, teens will learn that teamwork and friendship are important and that failure makes one strong. This high-octane novel is filled with mythical creatures and showcases a heroine who wants to be a warrior, a woman, and a leader.” — School Library Journal

“Witty banter brings levity, and of course Rasmira finds romance with one of the boys, but the real gratification lies in Rasmira’s transformation from broken, betrayed girl to resourceful, confident victor. Her final clash with the god is heart pounding, and her triumph in front of her village and father is satisfyingly righteous.” — The Bulletin for the Center for Children’s Books
