2014 book 184

Ellen Kusher's Swordspoint
I can't remember how I discovered this series existed--probably Metafilter--but I'm glad I did! It's set in a slightly alternate world where people use hired swordsmen to fight for their honor, and it's about the most adorable couple of dudes that ever made out. Lots of action, plotting, class stuff, etc. My only minor complaint is that I think the story would have been a bit stronger if we'd seen more of the duchess (or maybe I just wanted more ladies doin' stuff--luckily it seems the sequel takes care of that). Anyway, I loved the way this ended and found it thoroughly enjoyable. A-.
