"Sasha is martial, a leader and a fighter. This is to be appreciated in a genre that sometimes makes caricatures of warrior women. Sasha's character is a breath of fresh air in a subgenre with too many Xena's...Sasha is excellent reading for fans of character driven stories. I recommend it." -- Grasping for the Wind, October 26, 2009
