Going into this novel, I was expecting something quite different from what I received (to put it nicely). Joseph Bruchac does create nicely developed monsters, but that's all that he creates that I could actually appreciate. But although I didn't really enjoy this book, I think others will since it's a dystopian novel that has a lot of action and a controlling government because really, who gets tired of those?Straight away, I knew that Killer of Enemies and I were not going to click because of the main character, Lozen. Lozen is a very stuck up person who annoyed me to no end. At every chance Bruchac gets, he reminds us that Lozen is very 'special' and is much better than every other human alive with a few examples being:1. My load weighs more than most men could easily carry. I'm deceptively thin, but few ordinary men are as strong as I am. 2. I heal faster than most, so I should be fine. 3. I can run faster than any other person I've ever met, so it won't take me that long. (Bitch, please. Quit being so damn cocky.)Another thing that annoyed me about Lozen is that she barely talks to anyone but her family and Guy yet, out of nowhere, there's a romance with another guy named Hussein. How does that even work without a solid foundation? Oh, because it doesn't, that's how. The idea for this story is also pretty typical with the controlling government, pretty random romance that's sloppily done, and the 'special' main character. Without even finishing the book, I knew the ending which ultimately ruins this novel even more.With that being said, Killer of Enemies does have a nicely developed monsters that are a bit different and a bit exciting. Instead of keeping to the typical crazy creatures, these ones are mutations and well as combinations of different animals to make them and Lozen is forced to kill them. I also like that there are different allies like a Sasquatch instead of another human. Because humans are typical and not as fun as Big Foot.Overall, this book is not a fun read for me, I could barely finish it and it took me over two weeks just to. Hopefully, other readers will find it amusing more than I did since there is a lot of action and a Sasquatch and crazy monsters that try to kill people. I just found this book not to be one for me unfortunately.
