Disclaimer: I was paid to boost the time frame of my reading and reviewing this one. This in no way impacts my opinion.

HER OWN HERO really blew me away. Based on the length of this one, I wasn’t expecting as much depth to the characters or the plot, but this one had both of those aspects and more. It was a really great story that was about female empowerment, understanding how to take care of yourself, and knowing what it means to be broken.

There is something about the way Sadai writes her main characters that brings you into the fold of the story, makes you empathetic for their plight, but also makes you question what they are doing. I liked being inside the mind of Sam while still being like “Oh Sam baby whatcha doing” because it was an interesting way to read. I also really liked all the inclusion of the Windsor and surrounding area because I kept being like “I KNOW THAT PLACE!!!” which was always fun for me. That’s one of the perks of reading locally, folks!

I thought Sam was a really interesting character and I liked getting to know her throughout the story. Sam was a true protagonist that walked that antagonist line - but only because she was her own worst enemy. She kept doing things and making mistakes that were understandable in the time but made me want to scream at her. Which is always a really great thing to have in a story. I loved when she made it to Burlington and the way the women really supported one another.

Overall, I thought this was a really good novella and explained a lot of the characters, situations, and everything it really needed to in order to tell a good story. I would have liked a little bit more in the fleeing section but I think for a novella, it was doing what it needed to do.
