Warrior Review

405 pages
When a witch is born, a doppelganger is created. For the witch to master her powers, the twin must be killed. But what happens when the doppelganger survives? Mirage, a bounty hunter, lives by her wits and lethal fighting skills. She always gets her mark. But her new mission will take her into the shadowy world of witches, where her strength may not be a match against powerful magic. Miryo is a witch who has just failed her initiation test. She now knows that there is someone in the world who looks like her, who is her: Mirage. To control her powers and become a full witch, Miryo has only one choice: to hunt the hunter and destroy her.

This book was definitely a good one. Full of magic and adventure, I think that Marie Brennan did a good job telling a story from two different points of view. You can definitely see Mirage and Miryo as two different sides of the same coin.  I enjoyed the mystery aspect of the story which I actually couldn't figure out until clit was revealed. There were times in the book where I felt they gave too much information and detail that didn't really add to the story but I ignored that and kept reading. Mirage was also a much more interesting character than Miryo as she was more the ideal of a typical book heroine. It could also be because Mirage had most of the focus in the book. However, I was able to connect with Mirage as a character more. This book definitely had an ending I didn't expect which created a great end to a great book. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy novel.
