As Knight launches her Duellists trilogy, she skillfully reveals the backstories of the siblings and Egimont, and how Reyes has come to the brink of revolution, illuminating a complex and intriguing world. The accelerating pacing as the present and past converge will hold readers in suspense and eager for the next two books, which will be released in November and December.
For readers who are looking for a fast and fun read, Swords and Scoundrels is perfect . . . quick pacing, witty dialogue, and plenty of adventurous action . . . Great entertainment . . . I'm definitely on board for another Duellist adventure.
Swordplay, politics, sorcerers and more....The action is nonstop
Think daring swordfights and witty banter, think nefarious plots and manipulative villains, think betrayal and love, there's also a lot of clockwork powering the whole thing . . .very entertaining
A great fantasy with bad magicians, revolutions and people being controlled and betrayed at every turn. I really couldn't stop reading this and I can't wait for book 2
'A fast paced and very adventurous book. And this is what I look for in Epic Fantasy, fast moving plot and a lot of fun to read. From the start I was taken into the world of Swords and Scoundrels the premise with a brother/sister duo who see eye to eye most of the times and can be very rivalry the other times works just perfectly. For me it was a great start, looking forward to the sequel!
Beautifully crafted action scenes blend intimately with strong emotion and realistic characters. Told from several viewpoints and punctuated by flashbacks, the shifting narration serves to paint a well-rounded picture filled with fascinating surprises and unforeseen twists.
