The Sword-Edged Blonde

Front Cover
Night Shade, Oct 1, 2007 - Fiction - 256 pages

While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller, a national bestseller, or a Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality books from a diverse group of authors.

The Noir voice in a medieval fantasy setting is jarring but the story moves and the actions are interesting enough that the shallow peripheral characters don’t jangle. Read full review
