Reviews

"I was completely enthralled by the fascinating and unique world. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough."--Franny Billingsley, award-winning author of Chime
"A tense, romantic fantasy epic about prejudice, political struggle, and the power of words, SWORD AND VERSE kept me guessing at every turn. Kathy MacMillan is a writer to watch."--R.J. Anderson, Andre Norton Award-nominated author of ULTRAVIOLET
"Fans of Megan Whalen Turner will enjoy MacMillan's debut."--Publishers Weekly
"A thoughtful debut fantasy."--Kirkus Reviews
"MacMillan has created a believable world, complete with its own mythology. For voracious and dedicated fantasy readers."--School Library Journal
"This is a highly satisfying novel with an exciting conclusion. Filled with romance, political intrigue, and rebellion, this page-turner will be in high demand by fantasy lovers."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
"MacMillan's love of learning, knowledge, and literacy shapes both plot and character development, while raising ethical questions with no easy answers. Beneath what appears to be a romantic fantasy, discerning readers will find complex, broader issues among the predictable comforts of the genre."--Booklist
