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
"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
"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)
