Loved: I’m actually still in the middle of this one, but its opening pages sucked me in better than just about anything. It’s a tale told in front of a crackling fireplace about a pair of old swords and mysterious family legends!
Learned: This is another interesting one in terms of how it stacks up today. On one hand, it’s a brilliant example of a strong female MC in epic fantasy. On the other, it feels almost old school compared to the expected “heroines” of today.
