Reviews

"A quick, delicious bite of a dragon-slayer fantasy with clever worldbuilding and twists that'll catch in your throat... if you're not careful." --C.L. Clark

"The Fireborne Blade is fresh, well-crafted, and engaging. A knight, squire, and dragon adventure like none you've ever read!" --Juliet Marillier

"A monstrously clever gem, chilling, dark and full of character." --Adrian Tchaikovsky

"The Fireborne Blade is a delightful romp through a vibrant, surprising world of mages, knights, and dragons. I loved following Maddileh through her adventures!" --Kelly Robson

"Bond's debut novella is an exciting new fantasy adventure that brings surprises until the last page." --Booklist

"Recommended for readers who love to see a familiar tale turned on its head so hard that the entire story becomes different and even more fascinating." --Library Journal

"This is is an entertaining story, with some vividly inventive dragon-related-worldbuilding, and a compelling dragon-battle showdown....A breath blowing straight in from the D&D-esque sword-and-sorcery of yesteryear. I could definitely stand to read a few more earnest adventures in this vein." --Locus

"I'm a sucker for lady knights, and I've been excited for this epic fantasy novella since I first saw the cover . . . This slim first volume is packed with engaging worldbuilding that makes it no surprise that there's already a sequel." --LitHub

"The Fireborne Blade by Charlotte Bond is a brilliant novella....One of the best dragon dark fantasies I've read in ages." --Grimdark Magazine

"Like its claustrophobic, dimly lit passageways, Bond's prose deftly tantalizes in this puzzlebox of a narrative. A quiet gem of a novella with much more lurking beneath the surface." --Eliza Chan

"Recommended for readers who love to see a familiar tale turned on its head so hard that the entire story becomes different and even more fascinating." --Library Journal

"Highly inventive and entertaining. Charlotte Bond is an exciting new voice." --Priya Sharma

"What an enjoyable read! In few words, Charlotte Bond blends fantasy with horror elements to create a complex and memorable world. Maddileh is an understandably prickly character who is easy to root for, and I guarantee you will not see the magnificent twist coming until it hits you in the feels. More please!" --Lucy Holland

"Sharp as a brave knight's sword, bright as a silver dragon. I loved it." --Anna Smith Spark
