Sword and Verse

24 Feb

22065067Title: Sword and Verse
Author: Kathy MacMillan
Series: First in a trilogy
Recommended for: Jr High and High School (and that Jr High girl who wanted sex scenes)
Pages: 376
Call Number/Link:  TEEN FICTION MACMILLAN, K

Synopsis:  When Raisa, a slave since being kidnapped as a child, is chosen to become a tutor and learn a secret language, she is torn between her feelings for Prince Mati and her desire to help free her people.

 

Review:

Good points:
Not very many battle scenes
A focus on the importance of information and language
No love triangle
A moral quandary that would be a struggle to figure out
Mythology subplot
Nice world-building

Bad points:
Not very much action
Too much focus on romance (and quite a bit of non-graphic sex) to the detriment of the story

Overall, I recommend it to the fantasy reader who doesn’t read fantasy for the battle scenes.
