From the author of The Queen’s Rising comes a thrilling YA stand-alone fantasy about the unbreakable bond between sisters. Perfect for fans of Ember in the Ashes, Sky in the Deep, and Court of Fives.

After eight long years, Evadne will finally be reunited with her older sister, Halcyon, who has been proudly serving in the queen’s army. But when Halcyon appears earlier than expected, Eva knows something has gone terribly wrong. Halcyon is on the run, hunted by her commander and charged with murder.

Though Halcyon’s life is spared during her trial, the punishment is heavy. And when Eva volunteers to serve part of Halcyon’s sentence, she’s determined to find out exactly what happened. But as Eva begins her sentence, she quickly learns that there are fates much worse than death.

YA Review My Thoughts

Sisters of Sword and Song is a young adult fantasy standalone by Rebecca Ross. I love long series, but every now and again I also really enjoy mixing it up with well done standalones because there is something so satisfying about wrapping everything up in one novel. Which is exactly what I loved about Sisters of Sword and Song. Sisters of Sword and Song is a great fantasy standalone. It is a really heartwarming tale of the bonds of sisterhood, all set in a really wonderfully developed world.

In Sisters of Sword and Song  we meet sisters  Evadne, or Eva, and Halcyon. The book is told in dual narrative between the two sisters, which was perfect. I loved Eva and Halcyon. Even though they are quite different, this book was a really powerful story about the strong bonds of sisterhood, which I loved. Halycon uses her magic to fight in the queen’s army, and Eva is left at home magic-less (but is she really??) . But when a tragic accident occurs and Halycon has to bear the weight of the punishment, Eva steps up to help her sister out and take on some of her punishment. Which then sets the reader of on a wonderful adventure. I fell into this story so easily because I could picture everything author Rebecca Ross was describing. The world came to life for me, the magic system and the ties to mythology were huge pluses for me, and there was also a really strong cast of characters. I got so swept up in the plot that I read this book in one sitting.

There is also a romance in Sisters of Sword and Song, which was a welcome surprise, but it was secondary to the plotline between the two sisters in my opinion. The story’s main plot line involves a quest style adventure, which is where we see some of the gods and ties to Greek mythology. The pacing and world building in this novel was perfect! Noting ever felt rushed or too slow, and I was certainly never bored.  I enjoyed Sisters of Sword and Song even more than I thought I would. This was a delightful story about sisters, with plenty of magic adventure, danger and a bit of romance to hold the readers attention right until the very end! What a great story. I highly recommend it to all fantasy lovers.
