After a series of experiments -- novellas, short stories, epistolary exchanges -- KJ Parker returns to full novel form with the luxury of space and time to explore plot, character subtleties, and recurring themes with wit and charm, adventure and grim beauty. A great intro to KJ Parker. If you enjoyed any of Parker's previous works, Sharps will be a treat!

I read 188 books in 2012, and I'm voting for K. J. Parker's "Sharps" as my favorite one.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "On the surface, Parker's newest stand-alone, like the earlier Fencer Trilogy, is a ripping good adventure yarn, laced with frequent barbed witticisms and ace sword fighting. Fencing champion Suidas Deutzel of the Republic of Scheria is caught up in the aftermath of a decades-long vicious war between Scheria and its mortal enemy, Permia. A fencing team of Suidas, unintentional murderer Giraut Bryennius, general's son Addo Carnufex, and grouchy proto-feminist Iseutz Bringas reluctantly undertake a tour of Permia — a supposed goodwill trip that may start another war. Beneath the hilarious horrors of a trek that suffers every possible setback, Parker details the thrusts and parries of a game between the military aristocracies that want war and the banks that don't. Parker's settings and characterizations never miss a beat, and the intricate political interplay of intrigue is suspenseful almost to the last page. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
