Trapped in a prison of enchanted steel When Halla draws the sword that imprisons him Sarkis finds himself attempting to defend his new wiel. Swords and sorcery novel featuring as the author put it “a beleaguered magic sword saddled with an inept wielder” And because it’s written by T Kingfisher aka Ursula Vernon you know it’ll be done wellThe magic sword Is inhabited genie like by a mercenary whose spirit was involuntarily attached to the sword many years ago The holder of the sword is a thirty something woman who’s had a rather rough life It’s an engaging story with appealing main characters Set in the same world as Clockwork Boys about five years laterRTC Thanks to the author for the review copy

Second read I was saving this one for time of need and by God this is one As comforting wise funny and sharp edged as I recall I could really use a new T Kingfisher right nowAn absolute joy Set in the Clockwork Boys world but with ostensibly far lower stakes we're not saving the world from demons here just saving a widow from being forced to marry a cousin Except that what we're actually saving is a woman's self respect and a man's humanity which actually is stakes high enough for any book Very much towards the romance side than other books and does it beautifully And the world Kingfisher is endlessly inventive in her threats and monsters and also one of the few fantasy writers who can conceive of oppressive organised religions that aren't Catholicism in a funny hat It's all joyously varied And talking of variety curvy mid 30s heroine important nonbinary character whose identity and pronouns are never an issue ueerness existing and unuestionably acceptedGlorious funny dialogue intense but clearsighted compassion and humanity a fair bit of highly enjoyable murder And seuels I would swap a limb for Angharad and the Dervish's stories clasps hands looks pleading
