Overview

A humble goat herder’s son and kin of the wood cat, Conash bonds with his familiar when he is just six years old. The sickly boy teeters on the brink of death, so much so that he is given the Death Rites three times before he is ten years old.

Against all odds, he grows up a happy, laughing child, the apple of his mother’s eye and his father’s most cherished son. The church will not give him the Life Rites, since the boy will not live to puberty. Conash is beloved of the beasts; able to charm the birds from the trees with his smile, and his parents know he is God Touched.

When the Cotti invade his village during the Rout of Ashtalon, Conash is just twelve years old. After witnessing the slaughter of his family and familiar, he wakes from his death sleep a castrated Cotti slave, and suffers their abuse until the night he slips away into the desert. He crawls from it maddened and haunted by his familiar’s ghost, his heart as dead and cold as frozen stone.

Sustained by hatred and rage, he journeys to Jondar, capital of the Kingdom of Jashimari, to become a thief and murderer and live in the gutter, fighting for scraps with stray dogs. Then an elder assassin takes him in and trains him to be a killer...

If I had read this before the entire series it would have thrown off the need and intrigue I had throughout the series I believe. The first six made me completely fall in love with the characters and this offers the story we slowly learned about through the first six. Still as amazing as the first six, but I stand by after and not before...

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this series. Although, one must read all of the books to continue the saga. The same holds true for the Chronicle Series. These books are very entertaining.

EXCELLENT! My sister & I have not been able to put these books down! This story will have you laughing, crying & holding your breath! If you loved the series, then you will love this! Spoiler: I would recommend NOT reading this or the other pre-quel until you have read the series! It sounds weird but I think that if you read the first it takes away from the mystery that surrounds Blade in the books. If you haven't read the series, read it first & then come back!

I have read the entire series over a two week period. I had real problem putting it down to do the things I was scheduled to accomplish. I absolutely whole heartedly reccommend T.C Southwell and intend to read other books by this author.

The Queen's Blade was a great read. If a knew, I would have read the two prequels first. The entire series was very good.

I read all the Blade Series and then came back to Conash The Prequels I & II ... The stories are so engrosing that you are never disappointed. Blades' character is so complex and realistic that you will easily fall in love with him.
