Praise for The Blue Sword 

* “This is a zesty, romantic heroic fantasy with an appealingly stalwart heroine, a finely realized mythical kingdom, and a grounding in reality that enhances the tale’s verve as a fantasy.” —Booklist, starred review

* “McKinley has reworked many familiar mythological motifs into a tale that is completely fresh; her spare and eloquent prose is sheer delight.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“A new language, a new landscape, and a new people—all unforgettable!”—The Horn Book

“McKinley knows her geography of fantasy, the nuances of the language, the atmosphere of magic . . . .” —The Washington Post

“Any book that, at one point or another, reminded me of The Sheikh, Gunga Din, Islandia, and The Lord of the Rings can’t be anything but a true original.” —Isaac Asimov’s Science Fiction
