Content:

Sex & Nudity

There's a lot of suggestions and one 'fade to black' scene. And a surprising amount of mention of rape

Violence & Gore

Quite a bit, because they are fighting a war. But not a lot of descriptions

Profanity

None, as far as I remember

Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking

None

Frightening/Intense Scenes

There are some intense scenes when the main character is in mortal danger, but the feeling of the book isn't very intense or frightening.

Your Rating and Thoughts (Anyone can add their own)

Four Stars

As someone who hasn't read a high fantasy novel in a while, this was surprisingly refreshing. The characters were interesting, the situation was believable, and the story was great.
