A Warrior’s Tale is the fantasy tale of Nayla, a half-Elf, half-mortal, who is shunned by both cultures including her own father, Lord Treeborn. With help, she flees from the brutal beatings of her father and finds herself in the lands of the Kagai Warriors. Struggling to find her place, she serves the Warrior leaders and when old enough, she trains amongst the men. Proving herself in every battle, she becomes a legend among the Kagai. After many years, she returns to her homeland, no longer a child to face her father. Throughout her training and life thereafter, Nayla learns many life lessons and continues to search for a sense of belonging among the people of her heritage.
While reading this book, I became emotionally involved with the character Nayla (Takaro). Several times, I found myself holding back tears as Nayla struggled to find her place. A Warrior’s Tale is a wonderful read, and I am anxious to read the rest of the Imago series.
