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 heav’n 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 trade 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?

I just have to start by saying, ‘WOW!’ I’ve read some of Harmon’s novels and let me tell you, this woman can write about anything in any genre. All of her books are different and everyone that I’ve read, was beautifully written. She has a way with words and you can’t help but be fascinated with her stories.

The Bird and the Sword ensnared me then had me wrapped up in its pages from beginning to end. I didn’t want the story to end. After I finished reading it, I immediately went to Goodreads to see if this would be a series because I would definitely love to read more about this wonderfully unique world that Harmon created.

Short and Simple: You should read this book! You won’t be disappointed.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
