I can't express enough how fantastic this series is. The second book does not disappoint; every expectation was met, if not surpassed with "A Journey of the Heart". Wilson reliably instills in readers the feeling of wonder at the world around Tamras, an appreciation for the complexity and beauty of social interactions, an awareness of the individual as multi-faceted and full of potential, and much more. The world is great and mysterious, awesome and cruel, and the people in it equally so. We get to know the characters even more, seeing sides of them that surprise and soften our hearts. There are things to be feared and worry over, and there are things to marvel at. I have yet to find a character I dislike or can't relate to/admire in some way. Every moment is handled with grace and wisdom, and as Tamras learns, we learn with her.
This series is more than addicting. Be ready to obsess over it, because it certainly won't let your heart or mind go. Both the first and second books have left a permanent mark in me, and I'm going to start the third ASAP. I bought the second and third as e-books (the first is FREE), but have also ordered the paperback versions and I would gladly throw more money at Wilson if the opportunity arose.

An amazing trilogy! Feb. 14 2011
By Jo Dogz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When Women Were Warriors is a lovely and well told story that spans across three books. It's an epic tale of one young girl, fostered to the house of Lady Merin in the hopes of one day becoming a warrior. Tamras may be young and innocent, but she knows what she wants and is determined to walk the path that she feels is best and not the path others would force upon her.

The books not only follows along as Tamras finds her path in the warriors world, we also get to see her discover the depth and strength of her heart and spirit and discover where she fits in in the world. I really like that Catherine has built a world of strong women, yet hasn't fallen into the trap of making the men weak, of body or mind.

I downloaded the first book from Catherine's website and immediately started reading. It didn't take long before I was fully invested in Tamras and where her journey would take her. That was two days ago. When I finished reading it, I immediately purchased books two and three and jumped right in. Needless to say, nothing else got accomplished around here, I blame Catherine for writing such great books. (I should be blaming my own lack of self control and poor time management skills, but where's the fun in that!).

When I finished the third book last night, I didn't immediately write my thoughts down, instead heading to bed with the intention of allowing the story to pecolate through my mind. I should know by now to have a pen and paper next to the bed, as I thought of several amazing, witty, astonishingly insightful things to write. Alas, I awoke this morning and they've all fled my brain. All I can say is I highly recommend the books. Catherine is kind (smart) enough to offer the first book for only a 99 cent download, so you have nothing to loose by giving it a go. If you're anything like me, when you get to the end of it, you'll almost be tripping over yourself to get back online and purchase the next two.

Thanks Catherine for a great trilogy of books :)

Review of When Women Were Warriors, Wilson, Catherine M. ©2008 by Catherine M. Wilson
By Morgan Van Dyke 4-3-08
The trilogy, When Women Were Warriors is written by Catherine M. Wilson. The main character, Tamras, daughter of Tamnet, amuses and challenges the reader as she learns how to develop deep friendships, face fierce battles and betrayal and grow into wisdom. Tamras has only lived in a land where women govern. When she leaves her mother's farm and lands, her adventures and misadventures at the House of Merin, a training camp for warriors begins.

In Book I of Tamras is presented to the House of Merin in hopes that she too may earn her shield. Queen Merin is the shield mate of Tamnet and Tamras hopes that like her mother, one day she too may earn her shield. Throughout the first book she learns the tasks of being a companion to a warrior and struggles with the hope and dread of becoming an apprentice. Find out what happens when tenderness becomes passionate? On the back cover Ginth is quoted, "Make sure of what you want, and when you get it, don't complain."

Book II continues the journey as Tamras learns the meaning of risk and love. What does it mean to face truths that hurt? Should one risk betrayal or betray the one they are bound to? Book II moves so fast it is over before you want it to be. To revel in the tale is like tasting the sweetness of a wild honeycomb while risking the sting and the knowledge that it will be a sticky mess. Who can Tamras turn to for guidance? "What's that? A wind through dry leaves? Black water whispering down a cave wall? No, just the voice of a foolish old women." Maara

In Book III comes Tamras' the challenge of a lifetime. Traveling throughout the land of her enemies, Tamras ponders the questions that will bring her to the brink. Betrayal after betrayal plunges her into despair; can she figure out who is the real enemy? How will she handle her terrors and passion? "You find the lie, you pull its thread, and the
What Tamras learns can be applied to everywoman. Through Ms. Wilson's tale we vicariously take part in an adventure as if we too are nubile and young. This book is the fantasy of any woman who faces her own foibles as she learns to love, take charge of responsibility and at face the underworld of her mind. These three books take you to the heart of the matter and at the same time take you on a wild adventure When Women Were Warriors.
