Swallow, daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow.

Swallow, daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heaven or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, daughter. Stay alive. The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would sell his soul and lose his son to the sky. My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free. But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?

Holy enchantments, I've been ensnared and I never want to be set free again. This book is pure Magic wrapped in vivid and intricately poignant prose. These prose are things of absolute wonder might I add. They are not too flowery as to trigger an allergic reaction (like a migraine or spasms that lea...

4.0 Toni FGMAMTC's Reviews > The Bird and the Sword
This story has throwback to so many fairytales, but it's definitely original. It has a poetic feel. The leads are likable. It's very easy to root for them.

5.0 The Bird and the Sword
Brilliant! I couldn’t wait to pick this novel back up each time I set it down. Words, the power of words was the theme of this novel and I loved every minute I was captivated inside this fantasy world. It was the beginning prologue that got me, those enchanted words that Meshara’s mother spoke to he...

4.0 The Bird and the Sword
A bittersweet fairytale, narrated by the melodic inner voice of a protagonist in search of herself. The story is simple (with some twists nonetheless) but very compelling, and the narrative is soothing, though dark at times. I liked the themes, the characters and the epilogue. Recommended for a ligh...
