I really enjoyed this! The characters are so real, I love them! From the blurb, I guess there's supposed to be 3 "swords". I picked out: Darla, Trisha, and Ishtar. Should I feel guilty for liking some more than others?? It's like picking Galadriel over Aowen in the LOTR. Anyway, I liked Trisha a lot, loved Darla! felt terrible about Ishtar. I can't wait to read some more!
