The Privilege of the Sword

review The Privilege of the Sword Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Mistake is thinking that they apply For Katherine's host and uncle Alec Campion aka the Mad Duke Tremontaine is in charge here and to him rules are made to be broken When Alec decides it would be amusing for his niece to learn swordplay. The one where Mad Duke Alec brings his 15 year old niece Katherine to the city to make a swordsman of her Very fine when it comes to Katherine s personal life less successful in other areasKatherine is adorable and her reactions rang very true to me I especially liked how it felt for her to put on men s clothes for the first time and how she gradually gained enthusiasm for her fate Her sexual awakening was done very well too I enjoyed seeing the dark side of sex and marriage I have a feeling that the Regency romances you ve read and enjoyed the chilling it is to see the other side But the book has a complex view of sexuality and fantasy repeatedly it shows the same act with radically different meanings for the participants It was nice to have a tiny bit of backstory on Alec and nice to see that the author is aware that he s insane sometimes I ve wondered I m still not clear though on what he was doing by making a swordsman of Katherine was it only to fit her for the family role or was there some larger purposeI don t know what Flavia was doing there for all the long term significance she has she might as well have been left out And I object to Rose s plot being dropped at such a critical point though of course that s setting up for a seuelAnd the Ferris plot To have it resolved in so blunt and hasty a fashion was a real letdown for me and I also don t believe that Alec would have been able to walk away from such a thing with so few conseuences to himself and his family The ending was hasty in general I felt that two or three chapters had been left out but maybe that s because the book was Katherine s but the climax was Alec s so we never really got a climax for Katherine s story2007 Locus poll 1 fantasy Nation as Mother rules are made to be broken When Alec decides it would be amusing for his niece to learn swordplay.

review The Privilege of the Sword Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Than to follow the usual path to marriage her world changes forever Blade in hand it's up to Katherine to navigate a maze of secrets and scoundrels and to gain the self discovery that comes to those who master the privilege of the sword. This is the second of the Riverside books that I ve read and I think I ve figured out what is peculiar about them they feel like fan fiction without a source text Even Swordspoint the first book which sets up the world of Riverside and the couple Alec and Richard who are the clear emotional heart of that book and in some ways of this as well despite being in the background seems like it is assuming our affection and investment as readers sharing an inside joke It works because it s as easy to care about Richard and Alec as it is to care about some of the best fandom pairings out there and because the short handing gives us as readers the pleasant feeling of being a privileged audience being in on something with them But it s an interesting experience as a reader I want to think about the generic traits that make this and some other fantasy feel like fic where that originates is it because fandom writers all learn from Kushner and others are there shared sources to this Anyway Privilege of the Sword is a lot of fun but it doesn t work as well as Swordspoint there s something about it that feels tonally a little off It might be that I find it hard to get invested in Katherine as a heroine when she is not in on the joke with us similar problem sometimes with Kel in Tamora Pierce s Protector of the Small when she interacts with Alanna and Daine but that rings a little differently because the world of Tortall is developed and as readers we have had time to become invested in it or because I m made somewhat uncomfortable by the way volition becomes unimportant in the fantasy fulfillment narrative of her becoming a swordsman it s what Alec wants for her not what she wants for herself she at first finds the reuirement to change her gender presentation unpleasant and scary and then she accepts it It becomes a source of pride and joy for her and this makes some sense emotionally but I couldn t uite get away from seeing it as her embodying Alec s dream for her his own fantasy of a woman who can defend herself and cannot be coerced not her own Alec and Katherine s relationship is problematized but by the end of the novel those problems sort of fade into the background it s interesting Maybe my overall feeling upon finishing the book that it was fun but didn t uite stick came out the construction the side plotlines don t really fit together for me and like some other reviewers I would have preferred it to be all 1st or all 3rd pov I also wanted it to go darker I wasn t satisfied with the denouement of the libertine aristrocrat revenge plotline it wasn t enough for me again like the side plotlines in Protector of the Small Hmm Alec and Richard remain a joy Kushner is every effective at giving us just enough of their relationship that we still very much want Though I would sort of just have preferred books straight up about them Hottest Mess read and I think I ve figured out what is peculiar about them they feel like fan
