My review for Warrior will appear today and tomorrow you can see my review for Witch.
Eclipse and Mirage are bounty hunters. They will track down whomever their job requires them to follow. Their latest assignment has Mirage and Eclipse being commissioned by some witches to go after an extremely powerful witch. For Mirage this will be an interesting journey as she too is a witch. The Primes, a high counsel informs Mirage that the witch she is after is unique. The Primes tell Mirage that when witches are born, a doppelganger is formed. A doppelganger is the witch’s twin. Every doppelganger is killed so that the witch can master her powers. If the doppelganger was to survive then the witch would need to kill her/his doppelganger or their magic could consume the witch and eventually destroy them. It will be a battle to the end when Mirage comes face to face with her doppelganger, Miryo.
Warrior by Marie Brennan shocked me by how good it ended up becoming. I expected and hoped that it would be good but not this good. I am so happy as it made reading Warrior an enjoyment and not a chore. The elements Ms. Brennan incorporated into the story of Good vs. Evil in the forms of Mirage as good and Miryo as evil was cool. I would consider Warrior to fall into the fantasy category. Fantasy books and I are slow to build a relationship because of the fact that most of the early fantasy books I read were a little too out there for me but with Warrior it was different. Warrior consisted of witches, bounty hunters, and magic; which I enjoyed Warrior not because of all these things but for the reason that Marie Brennan had a good balance between fantasy and reality.
