Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the course of five books, Sherwood Smith has enthralled readers with the world of Sartorias-deles. First in the military action of the Inda series and then in the magic-based cultural drama of Banner of the Damned, Smiths books are a tour-de-force of deadly high politics, incredibly engaging worldbuilding, and nuanced examinations of power, love, and betrayal. Readers of all stripes have praised her for the master fantasist she is.

Woven throughout these sagas is a dark mystery: the dangerous, shadowed threat of Norsunder. With incredible powers only hinted at and rare appearances of enigmatic characters, Norsunder has loomed as the ultimate villain, the very highest of stakes, and a foreboding battle to come: the great story readers have been eagerly awaiting.

A Sword Named Truth begins that story. The first installment of a trilogy, A Sword Named Truth launches readers into the non-stop action, politics, and magical threats leading to Norsunders return.

Our heroes span continents and cultures, ambitions and desires, but share one characteristic: they are young leaders. Many are rulers of unstable nations, growing into their power and themselves, but they are seeking ways to trust and bind themselves together – and find the strength to defend against a host that has crushed entire worlds.

Synopsis:

Kim Murray is happily planning her wedding when she finds herself pulled two centuries back in time. It's 1795, the rise of Napoleon, and Kim is now a guardian spirit for a twelve-year-old kid who will either become Kim's ancestor . . . or the timeline will alter and Kim will vanish, along with the small, magical European country of Dobrenica. What? Yes, the child called Aurelie de Mascarenhas must get to Dobrenica, or more than just one family will vanish.

Kim hates time travel conundrums, and knows nothing about kids. How is she going to guide a kid born on Saint-Domingue, with whom she has nothing in common?

From Jamaica to England to the Paris of the early 1800s, Kim and Aurelie travel, sharing adventures and learning more about Vrajhus, the Blessing, and the Nasdrafus than is known in Dobrenica's modern times. Along the way to wedding bells or annihilation, Kim makes a shocking discovery . . .

Synopsis:

Acclaimed author Sherwood Smith's first adult fantasy novel, set in the bestselling world of Crown Duel.

Indevan-Dal is the second son of the Prince and Princess of Choraed Elgaer, destined to become his elder brother Tanrid's Shield Arm-his military champion. Like all second sons, he is to be privately trained at home by Tanrid, the brother whose lands he will one day protect.

When the King's Voice comes to summon Inda to the Military Academy, he might well feel foreboding, or even fear-war is imminent-yet youthful Inda feels only excitement. But there are things that Tanrid hadn't prepared him for, and Inda will soon learn that the greatest threats to his safety will not come from foreign enemies, but from supposed allies within his own country.

James The Lunatic, April 22, 2009 (view all comments by James The Lunatic)
A fantasy novel with excellent characterization and a real understanding of human motivation. The culture and society have a realistic depth and the action is fast paced. Magic in the book is secondary to human action, existing in the background rather than being a focus of the novel. It's a refreshing change from the usual fantasy novels and I bought the sequel,"The Fox", before I was half finished reading it so that I would have it to hand as soon as I finished "Inda". Sherwood Smith is shaping up into an excellent writer and I would recommend the "Inda" books and her earlier "Ruler of Naught" science fiction trilogy without reservation.
