The Sword-Edged Blonde

by Alex Bledsoe
Release date: 2007
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyhigh fantasy

It should have been a case like any other: a missing princess, a king willing to pay in gold for her return. But before he realizes it, sword jockey Eddie LaCrosse is swept up in a web of mystery and deceit involving a brutally murdered royal heir, a queen accused of an unspeakable crime, and the tragic past he thought he’d left behind.

In order to uncover the answers he seeks, Eddie must delve into the dark underbelly of society while digging deep into his own private history, drawing past and present together. Vast conspiracies, women both beautiful and deadly, and a centuries-old revenge scheme are only a few of the pieces in a lethal puzzle.

The Sword-Edged Blonde is a tour-de-force foray into a realm of action, intrigue, and murder.

"Some writers write funny stuff. Some writers write funny characters. With The Sword-edged Blonde Alex Bledsoe has written a compelling story with fascinating characters – who are so witty and whose attitude is so wry that I laughed AND cared. That's real comedy, folks, the hardest kind of fiction to write, and Bledsoe brings it off with panache." – Orson Scott Card

"The Sword-Edged Blonde has all the finesse and depth of a great hard-boiled mystery, but takes place in a fully-realized heroic fantasy setting. From start to finish, it's a treat for readers of either genre, and easily one of the better books I've had the pleasure of reading this year. Don't miss this one." – Charles deLint
