Overview

Sherwood Smith is 'a writer who is making her bid to be a major fantasist.'( Orson Scott Card)

Inda, on the verge of adulthood, is at last coming home. At age eleven he'd been exiled from his kingdom, but when he learns that his homeland is about to be invaded, he ends his exile to report the imminent attack. Pressed into service as the king's 'royal shield arm,' Inda must now defend the kingdom-for his reputation as the captain who defeated the most dangerous pirate fleet in history makes him the only man who stands a chance to defeat his country's ancient enemy.

Editorial Reviews

Orson Scott Card
The world creation and characterization within Inda have the complexity and depth and inventiveness that mark a first-rate fantasy novel... This is the mark of a major work of fiction...you owe it to yourself to read Inda.
San Jose Mercury News
Intricate and real...Filled with magic and glamour...Characters spring to life with humor... Complex and compelling.
Locus
Many fans of old-fashioned adventure will find this rousing mix of royal intrigue, academy shenanigans, and sea story worth the effort.
