's review

it was amazing

The amazing thing about Swordheart is that it's somehow simultaneously:
a) A full-blown period romance novel about a young widow escaping the wicked relatives who are after her inheritance
b) A proper fantasy story with living sword-spirits, ambulatory hillsides, demon-slaying knights and levitating slime creatures
c) The funniest thing I've read all year

I mean how is this even fair to the other books?

But seriously, this is delightful. Halla is a resourceful, willful and uncommon heroine, Sarkis a brilliant foil for her (and not just because he's a sword), their romance together practically flies off the page, and the supporting cast (especially Zale the priest) are just as compelling.

I can't wait for (view spoiler)
