Books Read, November 2007


Privilege of the Sword by Ellen Kushner – A sequel of sorts to Swordspoint, Privilege of the Sword is about Katherine, a down at the heels noblewoman who is educated as a swordsman by the whim of her uncle the Mad Duke Tremontaine.
Swordspoint By Ellen Kushner – After reading Privilege of the Sword I realized it has been many years since I read Swordspoint, so I went back and reread it. I’m having a hard time finding the other book in the series, The Fall of Kings.
Bloody Jack and Curse of the Blue Tattoo by L.A. Meyer – The first two books of this series about an orphan girl who disguises herself as a ship’s boy and experiences adventure on the high seas were very entertaining.
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr – I can see why this is considered a readalike for people who like Stefanie Meyer’s Twilight series. Except here, instead of vampires there are various types of fairies, both good and evil.
