Karrin: Warrior Child is a short work of fantasy fiction written by author Sahara Foley, and it forms book three of the Excalibur Saga. Not suitable for younger readers, the book contains adult themes, sexual abuse themes and violence from the start, as our young heroine Karrin suffers at the hands of the guards in a bleak home for unwanted children. After escaping their clutches, more horror awaits the young girl, as we discover that she is the central target of a bounty hunter from a far off planet. Karrin’s origins lie beyond the stars, but in her journey of discovering herself, she might just lose her life.
Part gritty urban survival tale, part far off planet fantasy drama, this unusual mixture of genres worked really well to create an enjoyable story. The central plot of the novel was resolved quite quickly in a fast-paced read, and author Sahara Foley did a great job in creating the initial terrifying situation that traumatized the poor orphaned Karrin. The supporting characters, both good and bad, were described with a childlike atmosphere which really added to the effect of Karrin’s helplessness, and as the novel progresses we’re able to see how she draws strength from old abuses and dark memories to become the Warrior Child of the novel’s title. Overall, I’d recommended Karrin: Warrior Child as a great standalone novel suitable for adults, and those able to cope with its darker themes will find a gritty but rewarding hero tale for the modern age.
