Shelly at Tsk, Tsk, What To Read? says: "What a magnificent tale. Camille Picott has woven a spectacular fantasy without all the elaborate world building and difficult language. She manages (seemingly) effortlessly to narrate this exciting and thrill packed story without heavy descriptives and complicated terms. Yet she's able to capture the lush scenery, the beauty and ugliness of a society steeped in culture and tradition and on the verge of war, and most of all, the instantaneous and loving bond between a decorated warrior and a mere child.
I found myself quickly absorbed in the story and eager to follow our unlikely, but inevitable companions on their journey. From the moment they meet, it's easy to see Yi and Tulip have a rare connection. Their banter and inner monologues offer lightheartedness and a bit of laughter to their often dire circumstances. The affection that they share is endearing and left me melting in familial goo." Read the full review here.
Wattle at Whimsical Nature says: "It’s all pretty straight forward really, there’s villains and a really cool fantasy element involving lightening. There’s interesting creatures and politics. There’s no romance (I was so pleased by this!) and it was so well written. I very much enjoyed reading The Warrior & The Flower, it was nice to get lost in something that was so different."

Amanda at My Tangled Skeins says: I enjoyed this book. It was different than I had thought it would be going into it. I didn't expect it to capture my attention and fire up my imagination the way it did. The author created a world that it at once similar yet different from our own. Read the full review here.
Mary at Mary's Cup Of Tea says: "I thoroughly enjoyed the book! Yes, there are some sad things that happen in the beginning, but then it gets a lot better and the pace picks up after Yi decided to take Tulip with him." Read the full review here.
