Mercenary by Catherine Banks

Marin doesn't want to be a lady. She wants to kick ass and take names. But that'll be hard to do if she gets captured by an unknown enemy...

Being raised by the King and Queen of the Elves has given Marin quite a diverse background. Burdened by her humanity and femininity, she must push herself and train every day to hold her own against the elves around her.

But while Marin wants to be the first girl to graduate Macon Academy as a mercenary, her mother wants her to be a lady. And an attempt by an unknown enemy to kidnap Marin is not helping her case.

Between the kidnapping attempt, growing feelings for her best male friend, and now a fiery magic growing within her, Marin's life is changing in ways she can't understand. If she doesn't get a grasp on things quickly, she may lose everything she's fought so hard to gain.

If she survives at all.

Fans will love this fantastical adventure of passion, love, and loyalty.

Mercenary is a non-stop action fantasy. There are laugh out loud moments, and a tiny bit of romance. I really loved this new elves series. This book kept me up late reading into the night, I just didn't want to put it down. Marin is a human who has been living with the elves in the royal castle since she was four years old when the king found her by the side of the road. Her "mother" the queen has been trying to teach her to be a proper lady, while her "father" the king just wants her to be happy. Then there's Favian, the prince, who has been her "brother", best friend, partner and protector. Marin has always wanted to be a mercenary along with Favian. She kicks butt every chance she gets and loves every minute of it. Marin and Favian are heading back to the academy, after a break, where they both attend mercenary school. Before they make it there, they are attacked by some men who are trying to kidnap Marin. Once they do make it back to the academy things change for Marin. Her classes/training schedule has been changed and gets a lot harder. She learns that she will perform her final test to graduate sooner. Then there's the students who don't think a girl should be a mercenary or be attending academy. She has so many things to deal with already and now someone wants her kidnapped. Marin finds things out about her past, there are ogre attacks and a budding romance with Favian. I really enjoyed reading this. Marin is such a strong character but at the same time she lets her emotions get the best of her. Then there's Favian who is always trying to protect Marin while secretly, I think wanting to court her. Catherine did such a good job creating this world. It was easy to invision the surroundings and it felt like I was there in this fantasy world. I loved the ending. It's like the end of one chapter and the begining of something new and exciting for Marin and Favin. I'm excited to read the next one. I am definiely recommending this book. I loved it ~ 4.5 stars! This e-book was given to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
