A Woman of the Sword

By (author) Anna Smith Spark

A Woman of the Sword is an epic fantasy seen through the eyes of an ordinary woman. Lidae is a daughter, a wife, a mother – and a great warrior born to fight. Her sword is hungry for killing, her right hand is red with blood.

War is very much a woman’s business. But war is not kind to women. And war is not kind to mothers and their sons.

Reviews of A Woman of the Sword

"No other writer manages to combine such raw and visceral storytelling with so exquisite a style. A fierce and compelling story of love, life and loss." Adrian Tchaikovsky – Clark Award Winner for Children of Time

"A Woman of the Sword is brilliant grimdark fantasy. It hurts to read at times, is unputdownable at others, and I feel different people at different stages of their lives are going to take away different things. This is Anna Smith Spark at her heart-wrenching, mythic-feeling, storytelling best, and completely unmissable for anybody who enjoyed her Empires of Dust Trilogy." Adrian Collins – Editor in Chief Grimdark Magazine

"Epic fantasy from the victims' viewpoint, as seen by someone used to being a victor. Uncompromising and unputdownable – prepare to be challenged." Juliet McKenna

"Warrior and mother, fierce and flawed – Lidae's story portrays motherhood as you've never seen it before." Charlotte Bond – Breaking the Glass Slipper
