Reviews

Swordspoint begins with a single drop of blood on a field of new-fallen snow, an image that burned itself forever into my mind the first time I encountered it. I can close my eyes and see it still. It's a terrific opening, an unforgettable opening . . . and the book just gets better from there.Swordspoint was the best fantasy novel of 1989[Kushner] draws you through the story with such lucid, powerful writing that you come to trust her completely - and she doesn't let you down . . . Watch this woman - she's going to be one of the great onesA many-faceted pleasure. It manages to evoke both the witty Regency romances of Georgette Heyer and the fog-shrouded dangerous streets of Fritz Leiber's LankhmarA glorious thing, the book we might have had if Noel Coward had written a vehicle for Errol FlynnFans of Scott Lynch's Locke Lamora novels will adore Kushner's artful, witty and richly told tales of swords and rogues and gallants (both male and female) . . . read Swordspoint and you will find yourself in a world of derring do, sharply described sword play and dark secrets - Lovereading.co.ukA bravura performance - LocusWitty, sharp-eyed, full of interesting people - Newsday
