Killer of Enemies

The setting for this post-apocalyptic novel is interesting, taking place after an event destroys all electronic tech, setting humanity back to older methods. We have an interesting cast of characters, headed by Lozen who combines her remembered fragments of her native culture with typical action hero bravado.
I did have some issues with the wandering plot and the author's choice of an exaggerated, slang-y voice for Lozen, but they were mostly matters of personal taste, so maybe the next reader will like it more. I was a little amused by the love-interest sub-plot, where I don't think the guy Lozen was interested really served a purpose other than giving her someone to think about. This is an exasperatingly common issue for a male character's female love interest, but I rarely see it turned around the other way.
Later: Entertaining - and scary - post-apocalyptic world, where the usual perils of the desert are enhanced by the mutated and/or modified plants and creatures and people. I liked our action-girl heroine, and some of her scenes - especially the final battle - made me wish someone would put this on film; in the right hands it could be a cracking movie! I liked the cameraderie, the deliciously evil nastiness of the Big Bad, and the familiar-but-warped setting.
