T.R. Horne crafts an incredibly suspense story with an interesting main character. Rain Wilson is a girl with a missing history. She has no idea who she is or where she came from. All she knows is that she is on the trail to finding her estranged mother and will stop at nothing to find her.
Holly Lindin provides the narration for Girl Soldier and does a really nice job with it. Production quality and narration style worked really well with this book, adding to it instead of taking away from it. I will be keeping an eye out for other books that Lindin narrates.
I’m always a little skeptical when a book lists some of your favorite books or movies in their description. Sometimes this is just a play to get you to read a subpar book that is slightly similar. Girl Soldier was not one of these books. It was compared to The Bourne Identity and it really does draw some parallels and similarities from that series.
Thankfully Horne understands that readers sometimes need a break from the non-stop action that this book has. The author was able to place little bits of humor and light-heartedness into the story keeping it a little bit lighter. Horne’s writing when it came to the action scenes was perfect. It really reminded me of the best in the business.
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a male and I know who my parents are. Or if it’s because I’m not a trained assassin with no memory, but I found it hard to related to Rain. Don’t get me wrong, she was an absolute BA, but sometimes it’s hard to follow a story that you have little to no understanding of where the main character is coming from. Thankfully Horne’s writing style was so good and the book was so action packed that this didn’t really take anything away for me.
