Product Details


The Waterborne Blade is an intriguing and compelling fantasy woven from a fascinating story set in a vibrant world inhabited by vivid characters. Susan Murray is a consummate storyteller who fulfills everything you could desire of a book and leaves you wanting more.”
Graeme K Talboys author of Stealing into Winter

“This is a wonderful thing, a sweeping fantasy which somehow manages to pull off the trick of being intimate and very human at the same time. It begins with a realm in peril, and then puts its shoulders back and strides confidently towards a horizon packed with magic and love and abandoned palaces and a huge and very real evil. Susan Murray has written a debut novel of great skill and depth, and I loved it.”
–  Dave Hutchinson, author of Europe in Autumn

“This is a well-paced, enjoyable read with characters that feel rounded and real…the writing shines.”
Rian Drinkwater, SFX Magazine

“This thrilling tale of sword and sorcery thrusts us right into the action.  When we meet the protagonists, we are given no background on them, or on the situation they find themselves in. We are told they need to flee, now, and we follow.”
– Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Corner

“The plot moves at just the right pace, keeping it exciting while also allowing some time to develop Alwenna and Weaver as characters. This makes it really easy to become invested in the outcome since you actually know them well. I never felt like it was dragging and it was difficult for me to put it down. I almost missed my MAX stop on my way home because of this book. It’s totally engrossing, which makes this book go by pretty quickly, and leaves you wanting more.”
– Roberta’s Literary Ramblings

“I have to hand it to Murray, she certainly knows when to kick in the exciting developments in plot and character to keep you on the edge of your seat. Just when you think you’ve reached the right place to set it down, you end up reading right through the night to find out where exactly the plot is about to take you. It pretty much blind sighted me and I read a lot of fantasy!”
– Book Frivolity

“The Waterborne Blade is an exciting medieval adventure and I would definitely recommend this book to people who like fantasy and enjoy intrigue, magic, romance, and an interesting female lead.”
– The Qwillery

“This is epic, intelligent fantasy that doesn’t rely on excessive sex and violence to pad it out. Read it!”
– Flying, Not Falling

“An epic fantasy that’s easy to read.”
– Talk Supe

“An interesting high fantasy with great characters.”
– Syntax Reviews

“You know when you love a book so much that you’re like ‘Oh, well I need to wait 3 seconds for ____ to be ready for dinner. I can get another page read before then.’ That was this kind of book for me, and I loved every second of it.”
