|The Art of the Sword (Night-Threads)|
Date: 01 December, 1994 — Book
Second of three
Heh. "I won my wife in a card game, to hell with those Spanish Grandees." (Note: Folk song. Lyrics mutate.)
Speaking of ridiculous plot devices...
Ru Emerson somehow makes the silliest concepts work in this book. Kidnapping, enforced marriages while drunk, The Secret Society of Women Terrorists (and Sewing Circle)... okay, maybe not quite that last one, but still.
