Grudging cover

A world of chivalry and witchcraft…and the invaders who would destroy everything.

The North has invaded, bringing a cruel religion and no mercy. The ciudades-estados who have stood in their way have been razed to nothing, and now the horde is before the gates of Colina Hermosa…demanding blood.

On a mission of desperation, a small group escapes the besieged city in search of the one thing that might stem the tide of Northerners: the witches of the southern swamps.

The Women of the Song.

But when tragedy strikes their negotiations, all that is left is a single untried knight and a witch who has never given voice to her power. And time is running out.

A lyrical tale of honor and magic, Grudging is the opening salvo in the Book of Saints trilogy.

Mama’s Thoughts:
Firstly I have to admit I was completely surprised by this book.  I suppose I was expecting a light fantasy with some sword fighting, but that is not what I got at all.  Instead, I was presented with a wildly imaginative cast of characters fighting for the freedom to be themselves…and practice magic.  At times emotionally exhausting, this book is one of those grip-the-edge-of-your-armchair journeys that leaves you feeling overwhelmed yet satisfied for having spent a decent amount of time on a worthwhile read.  Fans of Kim Iverson Headlee and R.A. Salvatore will welcome the harrowing tale of bloodthirsty invaders and magical mayhem.  4.5 stars


MichelleAbout Michelle:

Besides working with special needs children by day, she writes all sorts of fantasy, giving her imagination free range. A book worm, she passes up the darker vices in favor of chocolate and looks for any excuse to reward herself. Bio finished? Time for a sweet snack.
