I read the first book in this series many years ago; it’s interesting enough worldbuilding that I remembered enough to continue. Magic has taken over from tech and mutated lots of formerly human people; our heroes are wandering across the country trying to rescue the leader’s sister, who’s become a “flare” who is captured by something big and evil living in the heartland. It was enjoyable if you like this kind of thing.

Based on the synopsis, I thought this was going to be a cozy or farcical tale of a mage school dropout and a pig farmer fighting a dragon. Instead, it's more like the plot of the Hobbit with the characters and themes of Middlemarch.

This was a rather refreshing book, with a female mercenary who is really good at what she does, and a whole group of women learning that they can run businesses when their men are captured, and that end up decent soldiers as well. It also shows a bit how disconcerting this is to the whole of their society, which isn't used to women with agency. I found the relationships to be well balanced. Sun Wolf and Starhawk find out separately that they like each other in another capacity than professional, and they do so realistically. Fortunately no gushing. I found the relationship between Sun Wolf and the women who kidnap him to be realistic as well.

I can't quite figure out why this isn't a 5 star for me, despite all that. Somehow I can't find anything wrong with it, and I see a great deal of good, including things that are rare to get right in fantasy, but still this book didn't draw me into its world as much as I would like.
