Duels, Swords and a Monstrous Horse: Traitor’s Blade by Sebastian de Castell

"The first rule of the sword is - put the pointy end in the other man." I bought this book rather impulsively, without really knowing anything about it.

Let's mix it up, shall we?  I thought I'd do a bit of a different review this time for a couple of reasons. First, this is a prequel novella in a series I love, but since it's a novella AND a prequel, it's kinda short, and offers a lot of back story and thus it's… Continue reading 10 Reasons to Read Sightwitch by Susan Dennard
