This story has a great plot and wonderful, realistic characters. There is an interesting relationship between Tiger and Del thats fun to watch. Tiger is somewhat annoying, but i soon got used to it and enjoyed the rest of the story. Del a feminist fighting for women's rights and Tiger has to reluctantly agree with her ideas. The other books in the series have a promise of more exciting adventure!

This one is a quick read, but it's beautifully written - a captivating story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the first of Jennifer Roberson's novels that I have read.I look forward to reading more of her work.

I am so happy I read this book. Del is my favorite character, all about women's rights in a violent way. Don't worry if you think Tiger is annoying now, he gets much better as you read the series.

I did like the general plot. It showed how human all of the characters were.Tiger was overall what I would have expected but he is just so gullible and self-centered in this book: extremely annoying throughout the story...poor Del.Atleast SHE is awesome! But I was dissapointed that she was about to give in to what Tiger wanted all along in the first place... oh well hope the other books will be far better!

I was shocked to read this book and find it in a first person point of view. I was spellbound by the first chapter. Tiger was one of the most interesting characters I have ever read about in most all my life. Del is also very interesting! I have yet to buy Sword-Singer. But I will own it soon!! Great work, Ms. Roberson.

This is a great series! I bought the rest of the series before I finished the first book. They are all great reads!

This wonderful series gets off to an exciting start. Sure to grab your interest from the first page. The writing is much better than Robersons first series. Roberson creates characters that you never want to let go. Each time you open her books it is like visiting an old friend. You constantly find yourself wondering what Tiger and Del are up to. Treat yourself to a great read.

The story starts out in a desert land with a man named Tiger sitting in a bar. A woman walks into the bar in search of him. Long story short, he goes with her and the story begins. The book has strong sexism themes, which I found curious since the author is a female, which makes me sexist, I guess. The story is told from the perspective of Tiger, whom only sees an attractive woman and nothing else. Del is a warrior and underestimated by everyone. She’s a very cold and serious woman with a realistic view of the world. She’s on a quest to save her brother whom was kidnapped and she will do anything she has to do to accomplish it. The story is very fast paced and a lot happens. I enjoyed the pacing and was never bored. It was an enjoyable ride, but ultimately forgettable. While it was enjoyable the constant themes of sexism started to get annoying. Tiger would repeat the same things over and over despite evidence to the contrary, and while he did gradually change, I felt like I was beaten over the head with it. The fighting scenes were rare and not enjoyable when they did occur. If you plan on reading this for action, I would pass. If you’re looking for a book to pass the time with a bit of romance and a quest, it’s a pretty good choice.

Del is awesome. Tiger is cool to, but some things about him are really annoying.

I'm glad my brother gave me this book to read, because I'll never forget Del and Tiger. These two characters are so unique and the story is so well written and adventurous, I couldn't put it down. You'll love the way Del and Tiger keep contradicting eachother and the relationship they form. Each character is like a real person and Jennifer did a great job creating them. Well done J.R.!

This book is easily the best fantasy title i have ever read, even now, a year after my first-but not last-reading. Tiger and Del come alive and interact, their characters have depth to the point that feel as though you have met them, and the book is packed with witty dialougue and hilarious situations. I have emailed Jennifer Roberson a total of 5 times telling her to hurry up with the next book in the series! Jennifer has pulled off something incredible here, with surly Tiger and suave, silent Del. It goes into depth with everything, including Tiger's stud, 'stud' and the personalties of the characters are explored with incredible detail, all the while making you chuckle and mentally pat Jennifer on the back for her wittiness. Job VERY well done, and a MUST READ. I cannot stress this more. Happy Reading.

This is a story of two people trying to over come preconcivied notions. Del and Tiger are learning to trust one another through the 'dance'. Jennifer Robterson style of writing is hard to dis-miss. You will find yourself relating to the plot in ways you never expected.
