    This book is a fast paced YA read with solid characters and a good story. It has a unique setting, it?s a post-apocalyptic middle eastern/Indian inspired world. The world is full of forgotten technologies that people do not understand the physics of them but use them. Kyra is t...

    Not grabbed by either character in the first few chapters. The concept's interesting, though I'm a bit confused by the world building thus far. I don't hate it, but I'm not sold enough to continue at this point. I will keep an eye on the series, and, if it concludes well, I may give th...

    This is more like a 2.5 stars for me. And I don't really know how to review it. I liked the story and it had a lot of potential. There were some plot holes or just some things that felt rushed. The romance felt a little off to me. Like it went from 0-60 in a month, and we didn't...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/03/18/... There?s really not much more to say about Markswoman beyond the fact it was a thoroughly engaging and straight-up good read. I blew through this book in a little over a day, and I loved how what started o...

    I really wanted to like this story. And while I did think it was good, I think I would've liked it more had I actually read the book. This was a very rich and complex fantasy world, and some of the details kind of flew over my head since I was listening to the audiobook. However, I...

    Markswoman is an interesting fantasy title in the fact that it defies categorization, to a certain extent. While the uniqueness of the world appealed, I did find the execution a little disorienting and confusing. This was part coming-of-age story, a revenge plot, a romance, and an adve...

    I LOVED THIS BOOK. Post-apocalyptic magical knife-wielding female assassins FTW! I received a galley through the publisher (also my publisher), and was happy to supply a blurb: "Markswoman is a breathlessly-paced post-apocalyptic fantasy with a highly original setting and characters...

    Review from Tenacious Reader: http://www.tenaciousreader.com/2018/0... This debut was such an enjoyable read for me. It had a great balance of world building and character drama and the pace kept things moving. The world in this is definitely interesting. It starts out feeling like ...

    This book was a big surprise for me. Why? Because I had started off listening to the audiobook in the car while my kids were with me and they insisted that I could only listen to it when they were there too. So I did - hence the lengthy time to completion. I thought maybe they might ge...

    I AM HERE FOR SISTERHOODS OF BADASS WOMEN. My reading interests fall pretty neatly into two categories: books full of badass characters (the characters I want to become) and trashy romance novels (for the trashy person that I am.) I was so certain Markswoman would fall into the former ...

    I wanted to love this book. I wanted to devour it in one sitting and bask in the wonderfulness that is female assassins and with YA/adult crossover appeal and. . . and. . . and I could go on. But that's not what happened and it comes down to one thing, really, that made the rest of the...

    This was a fast paced fun read. It was YA so it unfortunately it fell into some of the same YA pitfalls I tend to dislike, most notably, an instalove triangle. Not to fear though, the love interest doesn?t even show up until halfway into the book and the romance was in no way a centr...

    tw: self harm I read a few chapters of this book but I'm going to put it off for some time later. It was good so far like the world building and characters were interesting but what bugged me was that the MC cuts her arm after a kill (this happens in chapter 1). It is explained why ...

    I was iffy about this one for the first 70 pages or so, but I really enjoyed it! There were times where it dragged a bit and could've been condensed, but overall it was better than I was expecting. There are still some things that I'm confused about with regards to the world-building, ...

    I like it, but it is SO SLOW. It takes forever to get going. (I think 150 pages so almost half of the book before the story starts) Basic plot: the story is told from 2 view points Rushtan and Kyra. They are both assassins (Markswomen/Marksmen) who are tasked to carry out all deaths...
