This now ranks as one of my favorite reads for the summer.

I absolutely adore Deuce, and I admire how she has been written.

She is a warrior, but doesn't look down on those with other types of strength and other skill sets. She truly wants to be herself, and is searching within to figure out WHO she is beyond just the warrior. She holds the people around her up to high standards, but is able to understand that they have their own history and baggage to overcome.

This is a powerful story about love, loyalty, and making your own family. A story about courage and cowardice. Deuce is a heroine I feel lives up to my "Buffy" standards... and that is some powerful praise.

(I got to read an advance copy thanks to a friend who shared the love)
