Our Review

 “You are a dangerous little bird. But I think I will keep you.”

Oh wow…..SERIOUSLY, OH WOW! We’ve always known that Amy Harmon is a fabulous story-teller from previous books we’ve read; her words spinning tales of powerful soul-full beauty. However, we were not prepared for The Bird and the Sword. It surpassed every expectation and imagination. It was quite simply masterful brilliance. It was magical. It was EVERYTHING.

“Silence daughter, stay alive.”

“I can’t heal what isn’t broken.”

We love our paranormal reads, our fantasy and our otherworldly stories, they offer complete escape into a magical and mysterious world where good and evil reside, wars are fought and loyalties tested. We do find though that they are few and far between or don’t quite hit the spot we crave to be filled.

‘Yearning. There it was again. Suddenly yearning had a flavor. It tasted like a king, a beautiful, frightening, infuriating man who flew into my life and began to free my words.’

Well, this did not just simply fill it – it overflowed with stunning, breath-taking moments of pure magic as Amy Harmon’s world consumed us and her characters captivated us. We fell in love with absolutely everything in this flawless, thrilling and epic tale of cursed ones, greed and magic as well as the ultimate, love.

“You glow, Lark.”

Then why does no one see me?

“I see you.”

Without question, this has now become our favourite book by Amy Harmon- so creative with such stunning vivid imagery, we lived in a world of enchantment rapidly turning pages from start to finish inhaling every word spoken- or not. The gift of words have never been more apropos and we cannot recommend The Bird And The Sword highly enough – we are quite simply lost for words sitting in complete awe right now.

“I have taken. Endlessly. And you have given endlessly….. You were not supposed to love me, Lark. I did not set out to make you love me. And I was not supposed to love you. But I do. And it is terrible.”


Swallow, Daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heav’n or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, Daughter. Stay alive.

The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would trade his soul and lose his son to the sky.

My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.

But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?
