Elivya, the only heir to the House of Lazerin, should have been born a boy. She wants strength, respect, and the right to wield a blade, something girls don’t get. It’s her duty is to go to court and find a husband, but she will do so in her own terms. Elivya spends her childhood roughhousing with the boys, stealing horses to ride as far as she can before getting caught and learning every art of secrecy from her mother, but all of this can only prepare her so much for the impossible task set out before her. One that, if she should fail, means the fall of her house and even her country.
With a strong heroine who learns and grows throughout the story, Traitor has a lot of promise, yet I found myself getting bored as the middle dragged on and on, but there really isn’t much that can be taken out that isn’t important to the plot. The characters have their own voices, even the ones that have minor parts and only show up for a page. If you can get through the boring parts, it really is a good read. There is heavy cussing throughout.
