The Blue Sword,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Blue Sword (School & Library Binding)
While an excellent book, "The Blue Sword" does not meet the same standards as "The Hero and the Crown".
A few hundred years after Aerin enters the land of legend another woman finds her life changed by Damar. Harry, an Outlander, is kidnapped by Damar's king Corlath. Why he has been compelled to this illogical act by his kelar (magic) is not apparent to Corlath. Of course, Harry soon discovers that she has unknown talents and an unexpected affinity to the land of her kidnapper.
There is certainly action and character development in this book. At the same time "The Blue Sword" seems to fit its categorization as a young adult's book better than "The Hero and the Crown". "The Blue Sword" is an enjoyable read.
