"Who better to entrust a vile weapon to than someone who abhors the very thought of violence?"

Deenah's quiet life as an apprentice healer in the small village of Brae's Creek has come to an end. She can never go back. After fleeing through the wilds for days, she finds herself on the outskirts of Tablat, a frontier town full of thieves, murderers, and halfbreeds. Exhausted and hungry, she has no choice but to enter.

But she is not alone. And that thought terrifies her more than anything.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good second installment in this series 15 April 2012
By Casandra Perry - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Farrier is basically a long chapter in the serial novel Keepers of Kwellevonne. It continues the story of the healer's apprentice Deenah as she travels, seeking a sword capable of destroying the cursed sword, Kwellevonne. In this installment, Deenah's horse has come up lame, and she spends an interlude in a rough frontier town called Tablat. The other main character in this installment is Marcus the farrier.

Few, if any, grammatical mistakes or spelling errors. Good characterization though it feels a bit rushed. There is one point where Deenah finds herself in the midst of unsavoury characters, for example, but it seems very, very shallowly developed. Just a bit more elaboration would have really given us a sense of her growing unease. It's a question of show, not tell, that is just missed. Another encounter, with a priest of the as-yet-unnamed religion could also use some expanding. Finally, the interlude with Marcus, the farrier, was another missed opportunity to provide more information and really round out a scene. For example, there is a woman who is, I assume, the owner of the public baths that are heated by Marcus' forge. She comes into the scene having cleaned Deenah's travel-stained clothing, but we are not really introduced to her. Simple details, like her name, or a description, or a bit of dialogue would have changed this from a "tell" moment to a "show" moment.

This installment was not as long as the first. I liked it, though, so I give it 4 stars. Unfortunately, this *just* came out a few days ago, so I guess I have to wait a long time for part three, Warder :-D .

I hope you don't think I am being nitpicky with this review. I truly am enjoying the story of Deenah and her quest. I am eager to learn more of her backstory, which is being revealed in drips and drabs as we progress. I hope Ms. Swift takes my comments as intended which is to provide my honest feedback about areas where a "good" story could turn into a "great" story.

plot 5/5
flow 5/5
characterizations/rising action 3/5

Recommended. No cursing or blatant bad behavior, though unsavoury motives are strongly hinted at when she first arrives in town.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont Be Fooled $3 for about 30 min of reading 25 Mar. 2014
By M. Richardson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Short story really means small parts of one story that yo overpay for to read the thing. I would take a guess that this would like be a $25 in total cost for an average sized paperback.

Note this is not my first book by Swift but it will be my last. Not a bad author, decent actually, but someone should have suggested not to market short chunks of one decent story this way.

I read so many books trying to get a different spin, this one was great, I loved every minute of it and couldn't put it down. I almost made myself late for work trying to get to the next chapter.

Story was too short. Development of characters was absent. Not up to the authors usual style. Just saying my 2 cents worth
