About the Author
Praise For Sword-Bound: A Novel of Tiger and del…
"Surprise-filled... such a satisfyingly human series. Sensitive readers of both sexes should appreciate how Roberson rises above the usual genre cliches."
"Exciting sword-play, elegant prose, and detailed relationships make this latest sword and sorcery fantasy a must-read. This book stands alone, but the entire Sword-Dancer series is a treat."
"It's not just Ms. Roberson's fertile imagination that makes her books so special. It's also wonderful characterization and a marvelous sense of timing that keeps her readers right on the edge of their seats."
"Roberson doesn't take the easy way out...she has the courage and the writing ability to let her characters be true to themselves, and the result is a taut and breathless novel."
"Review enough books and you start to run out of superlatives, and I wish I could make a new one up to describe this particular fantasy adventure.... Go out and buy this book. Buy a copy for a friend."
