Renegades by NeverTrustAnAuthor
Alone they were messy. They were sloppy and careless and prone to mistake.
Together they were legends.
But for tales to become legends, they must first perish.
It was so intriguing to read the introduction, because the introduction was not very clear in what was going on with the story, but I was hooked. But despite not knowing much about the story, it really drew me in, especially with the action happening since the beginning. I loved the mysterious aspect of it, and it was really well written. It's hard to write how I felt by this story, because my feelings are indescribable. But it was, and is, truly amazing.

Honor by EisenMadchen
In the heart of Japan during wartime, Akira-Lee Yuki wants to bring honor to her family. She is not one to think of marrying, but if that brings honor, so be it.
Only thing is, she has a problem that tosses her honor out the window. To restore it, she joins the men's army to help her country in a time of need, though, women were not permitted to battle. That would bring honor, right?
Honestly, this shouldn't even come as a surprise to me, because I was so intrigued from the day you entered your story. The tale of Mulan is one of my favorites and I was so impressed by the blurb since I read it. I appreciated how you kept the same format of the original Mulan, but added a few of your own details to it to make it yours. The prologue was captivating, and got me hooked into the story. Honor was such an important theme in the story, and I really felt for Akira throughout her struggles to figure who she really was. I was enamored by your story, and I didn't want to stop reading, but I knew there were others I had to get through, but yours stuck with me all the way.
