The Privilege of the Sword

Es for the first time and HOW SHE GRADUALLY GAINED ENTHUSIASM FOR she gradually gained enthusiasm for fate Her sexual awakening was done very well too I enjoyed seeing the dark side of sex and marriage I have a feeling that the Regency romances you ve read and enjoyed the chilling it is to see the other side But the book has a complex view OF SEXUALITY AND FANTASY REPEATEDLY IT SHOWS THE SAME sexuality and fantasy repeatedly it shows the same with radically different meanings for the participants It was nice to have a tiny bit of backstory on Alec and nice to see that the author is aware that he s insane sometimes I ve wondered I m still not clear though on what he was doing by making a swordsman of Katherine was it only to fit her for the family role or was there some larger purposeI don t know what Flavia was doing there for all the long term significance she has she might as well have been left ou The book is set a dozen or so years after Swordspoint one of my very favorite fantasy stories Alec Campion the Mad Duke of Tremontaine summons his young niece to the city He
PROMISES TO ALLEVIATE HER FAMILY S 
to alleviate her family s situation if she ll obey his one command she must dress only in men s clothing and learn I was into this book as much as Artemisia and Katherine were into The Swordsman Whose Name Was Not DeathThe ending was a bit abrupt but not out of character I would ve wanted a intricate ending and a few chapters But I m completely willing to forgive this considering how fast my heart was beating during other parts of the story and how lost in the story and world I was Following the resounding success of my Locus est I faced a dilemma which reading list to follow it p with Variety is the spice of life so I ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously This book falls into my LOCUS FANTASY listAs the Locus Sci Fi Award winners list treated me so kindly I figure I ll trust those same good folk to pick me some stars in their sister list the Locus Fantasy Award winnersWhile I was working my way through the list of Locus Sci Fi Award winners I decided to dip a toe into the sister list for Locus Fantasy winners I ordered a trio of books from authors I d never read before Lavinia Paladin of Souls and The Privilege of the Sword and this came second out of the three At heart it s a traditional coming of age t Like Swordspoint which I also loved this novel is an extremely entertaining read that manages to provoke far thought than I would have expected from a book that s such pure fun I think what I loved so much about The Privilege of the Sword is that it manages to grant the reader the very real narrative pleasure of the comedy of manners and the swashbuckling revenge tale while at the same time illuminating the gender and class politics at the very foundations of these genres This knowing awareness permeates the book s wry humor especially in the scenes revolving around the fictional novel The Swordsman Whose Name Was Not Death which is both a vehicle for its society s oppressive s and the catalyst for subversion on the part of several characters who encounter and reinterpret it The role of popular fiction in the imaginations and self conceptions of these characters amounts to an incredibly smart commentary on the limitations and subversive potential of genre fiction as well as the power of alternative readings of even the most reactionary seeming stories It s also a hilarious affectionate parody of the novel s own genre Who says that critiues of deep seated power structures can t also be funTalk about the pleasure of the text To roughly ote a character as the book is not in. Mistake is thinking that they apply For Katherine's host and ncle Alec Campion aka the Mad Duke Tremontaine is in charge here and to him rules are made to be broken When Alec decides it would be amusing for his niece to learn swordplay. I feel bad for this book because I chose to read it at a time where I wanted something else completely tonally different so I m time where I wanted something else completely tonally different so I m actually sure what to rate it Full review and rating latersix months laterI DECLARE REVIEW AMNESTY Giving it a rating though35 stars rounded p This is the second of the Riverside books that I ve read and I think I ve figured out what is peculiar about them they feel like fan fiction without a source text Even Swordspoint the first book which sets p the world of Riverside and the couple Alec and Richard who are the clear emotional heart of that and Richard who are the clear emotional heart of that and in some ways of this as well despite being in the background seems like it is assuming our affection and investment as readers sharing an inside joke It works because it s as easy to care about Richard and Alec as it is to care about some of the best fandom pairings out there and because the short handing gives s as readers the pleasant feeling of being a privileged audience being in on something with them But it s an interesting experience as a reader I want to think about the generic traits that make this and some other fantasy feel like fic where that originates is it because fandom writers all learn from Kushner and others are there shared sources to this Anyway Privilege of the Sword is a lot of fun but it doesn t work as well as Swordspoint there s something about it that feels tonally a little off It might be that I find it hard to get invested in Katherine as a heroine when she is not in on the joke with A White Slave in Turkey Book 1 - A BDSM Novel us similar problem sometimes with Kel in Tamora Pierce s Protector of the Small when she interacts with Alanna and Daine but that rings a little differently because the world of Tortall is developed and as readers we have had time to become invested in it or because I m made somewhatncomfortable by the way volition becomes 1898 unimportant in the fantasy fulfillment narrative of her becoming a swordsman it s what Alec wants for her not what she wants for herself she at first finds the reuirement to change her gender presentationnpleasant and scary and then she accepts it It becomes a source of pride and joy for her and this makes some sense emotionally but I couldn t Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, uite get away from seeing it as her embodying Alec s dream for her his own fantasy of a woman who can defend herself and cannot be coerced not her own Alec and Katherine s relationship is problematized but by the end of the novel those problems sort of fade into the background it s interesting Maybe my overall feelingpon finishing the book that it was fun but didn t Lay My Burden Down uite stick came out the construction the side plotlines don t really fit together for me and like some other reviewers I would have preferred it to be all 1st or all 3rd pov I also wanted it to go darker I wasn t satisfied with the denouement of the libertine aristrocrat revenge plotline it wasn t enough for me again like the side plotlines in Protector of the Small Hmm Alec and Richard remain a joy Kushner is every effective at givings just enough of their relationship that we still very much want Though I would sort of just have preferred books straight p about them i liked this book a lot better than the first one tbh in my opinion the characters made much sense and again the diversity is a The one where Mad Duke Alec brings his 15 year old niece Katherine to the city to make a swordsman of her Very fine when it comes to Katherine s personal life less successful in other areasKatherine is adorable and her reactions rang very true to me I especially liked how it felt for her to put on men s cloth. Welcome to Riverside where the aristocratic and the ambitious battle for power in the city's ballroom brothels and boudoirs Into this alluring world walks Katherine a well bred country girl versed in the rules of conventional society Her.
