Killer of Enemies

We rated this book:


Killer of Enemies is about a young adult girl named Lozen, who lives in a futuristic post-apocalyptic world that has suffered from a mysterious event that destroyed all of the world’s electronics. Lozen has been trained by her Native American Apache parents as a warrior, or Killer of Enemies. After her family was captured by another surviving group and taken to their camp that’s half prison, Lozen is used by the camps semi-crazy, genetically- and technologically-altered leaders to kill the genetically altered animal experiments roaming the earth.

The world itself might seem overused at first, but the combination of scary things, Apache culture and folklore, and the characters themselves are enough to make the world unique. Lozen herself might seem cool and calculating, but her sarcasm in the face of danger and the selflessness make her an interesting character to think about. Her weapons training helps her survive, and she doesn’t rely on dumb luck like so many other action/adventure protagonists do. Overall, the book is a solid apocalyptic story, and one that doesn’t feel like it’s on repeat.
