Product Details


"It’s beautifully written, breezy, quick, hysterically funny, poignant and bloody and world-weary and heartrendingly naive by turns. This is a fantastic book, a coming-of-age story, and I love it with a quite deep and unreasonable love".—Elizabeth Bear, author of Worldwired

"Winning high fantasy … a welcome return to the romantic Riverside world Kushner introduced in Swordspoint."—Publishers Weekly

"One of the most gorgeous books I’ve ever read: it’s witty and wonderful, with characters that will provoke, charm and delight."—Holly Black, author of Tithe and Valiant

"A magical mixture of Dumas and Georgette Heyer. The dialogue dazzles and so does the swordplay."—Kelly Link, author of Magic For Beginners

"A swashbuckler for women—splendid!"—Tamora Pierce

“Unholy fun, and wholly fun…an elegant riposte, dazzlingly executed.” – Gregory Maguire, NYT bestselling author of Wicked
