*The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon*

The Bird and the Sword

I don’t know but this book reminds me so much of A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kremmerer. Not sure which came out first but these two have some things in common.


The day of the nuptials dawned crisp and clear, and the city came awake with a rush. For most of the day, I was prepped and buffed and smoothed and tweaked, and finally, wrapped in a dress of the most luxurious, pale blue silk I’d ever seen. When the preparations were complete, the women stood back and nodded gravely, like arrogant artisans. Their work was done. They retreated with instructions that I “not touch anything” until the guard arrived to escort me to the castle gates to begin my procession.

But no one came.
