Broken Banners (a Reaper of Stone #2)
Blurb: Slaughtered and left for crows, soldiers of the King’s Army lay dead in a field. A grim reminder: the king’s law ends at the gates of the capital. Elinor fought for what she believed and now she is an outcast. No soldier will follow her. No officer will stand with her. Yet when she finds her brothers and sisters slaughtered, she cannot turn her back on them.

Maybe because is a novella I feel the lack of some deep thoughts from the main character (Elinor), however, the change of 3 different POV could be part of the reason.
Aldis is asigned to a task. Elinor make it happen. The
Aldis is a douchebag , coward, and selfish.
Elinor gives -strangely- some Joan de Arc vibes (bad feelings in there). Empowered by strange powers, naive, and reticent to let go of her dreams.
I like Con.
No more different of other hundreds of fantasy books. It didn't get to cultivate enough curiosity from me to continue pursuing the rest of the novellas.
All the covers are beautiful.
