House of Swords, by E. Shortt, is an engaging and timeless story of love, loss, war and celebration. Set 1500 years into the future, we find that humanity has had to realize the importance and role of nature and has reverted to an agricultural society. At the same time, in an effort to rebuild their gene pool, a breeding master selects the mate for the leaders of the people to create strong and balanced leaders for the future generations. This exciting tale of swordfights and feasts is filled with characters that are young and vivacious with characteristics that we can both relate to and sympathize with. I eagerly await the sequel to this book!

More of a fantasy novel then a science fiction novel. A story of a fourteen year old girl who finds out she’s the most important and guarded secret in the land. With protectors, she travels through danger finding love along the way.

Good book, fast paced, hard to put down. If you like Mists of Avalon, then this is probably your flavor of novel.

The book starts in the underworld and it felt very real. There was alot of information at the first and it was a little tough getting into the book as this is a slightly different novel than anticipated. Once into it, I didn't leave!

Good characterization, the characters are very real and believable. There were a couple of instances where some of the characters seemed out of character, but, this was rare and overall very well done.

There is a pagan undertone to this novel which sometimes made me look terms up to understand what was being described. But, I loved being able to live in a different world with a very different culture than I used to.

The action was great and fast paced. Lots of fights, a war, traveling, interesting events.

The plot was solid and I couldn't find any holes in it.

Definitely a novel I would reread over and over.
