On Jennifer Roberson's web site (www.cheysuli.com), she describes the two main characters in her Sword-Dancer saga, Del and Tiger, as "Conan the Barbarian Meets Gloria Steinem." Delilah is a strong, stunning swordswoman from the North bent on vengeance for the slaughter of her family. Tiger is a legendary sword-dancer from the South who grew up a slave and won his freedom by killing a desert tiger.
In Sword-Sworn, Tiger returns to his homeland a walking dead man. As a breaker of a sacred oath, his life is forfeit. He is soon challenged by another sword-dancer, but even with two missing fingers, he quickly kills the fighter. As Del and Tiger continue their quest, Tiger has visions of a dead woman urging him southward to "take up the sword."
If you like action and adventure in a fantasy, these Sword-Dancer novels are perfect. Although the swordplay and magical elements are highly entertaining, it's the duo of Del and Tiger that powers this series. It's intense, romantic, sometimes funny, and makes for great reading. (Paul Goat Allen)
