Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Romance, Retellings, Christian Fiction
From New York Times bestselling author Melanie Dickerson comes a fresh reimagining of the classic Mulan tale.
Mulan isn’t afraid to pretend to be a son and assume her father’s soldier duties in war. But what happens when the handsome son of a duke discovers her secret?
Mulan is trying to resign herself to marrying the village butcher for the good of her family, but her adventurous spirit just can’t stand the thought. At the last minute, she pretends to be the son her father never had, assumes his duties as a soldier, and rides off to join the fight to protect the castle of her liege lord’s ally from the besieging Teutonic Knights.
Wolfgang and his brother Steffan leave Hagenheim with several other soldiers to help their father’s ally in Poland. When they arrive, Wolfgang is exasperated by the young soldier Mikolai who seems to either always be one step away from disaster . . . or showing Wolfgang up in embarrassing ways.
When Wolfgang discovers his former rival and reluctant friend Mikolai is actually a girl, he is determined to protect her. But battle is a dangerous place where anything can happen—and usually does.
When Mulan receives word that her mother has been accused of practicing witchcraft through her healing herbs and skills, Mulan’s only thought is of defending her. Will she be able to trust Wolfgang to help? Or will sacrificing her own life be the only way to save her mother?
First I just want to tell you that this is the ninth book in a series but it can be read as a standalone. I’ve been so excited to read this book. I read Mulan retelling and I was there. I really liked the characters. This book was filled with action and suspense and romance. I also really loved the writing and world building.
” I nearly killed him is what I did.” Mulan covered her face with her hand. ” I wonder what the penalty is for shooting out the eye of a Duke’s son?” “Why are you worrying? He still has both eyes.”
And now…He hadn’t know Mikolai-Mulan-for very long, but she occupied his thoughts even more than his brother.
And the soldier known as Mikolai of Lithuania will be praised for ages to come, notable as one who fights against injustice as well as the limitations placed upon her.
His heart tripped over itself.
