I like the books Mercedes Lackey writes, she is good at creating a believable world and people to populate it. While her writing is not the strongest I do find it engaging ang and enjoyable. I like a series I can live inside of and her books are ones that have characters I feel invested in and a world I believe could exist. ( )

Tarma and Kethry are Oathbound sisters. A strange pairing with Tarma being a Sworn Sword and Kethry being a mage. However, the goddess saw fit to bless the ties that bind them and so they travel together as mercenary's. The story felt more like a collection of short stories, each chapter a different adventure.

Kethry carries a gea, in the form of a sword called Need. Need calls to Kethry when women, and only women, are in trouble. Once the sword calls to Kethry there is nothing she can do, but answer.

I really enjoyed the main focus of the book being 2 women. The book, written over 30 years ago, and the author were way ahead of their time. I enjoyed it and will read more of the books set in this world.

Warning to gentle readers: There are many episodes of brutality against women. ( )

All I can say is, I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if it wasn't for all the rape, which in addition to being an uncomfortable topic in the first place, was, in my opinion, made even more uncomfortable by some of the ways in which the topic was dealt with. ( )

This is truly one of the best sword-and-sorcery novels I've read. The heart of sword-and-sorcery is the old-fashioned "buddy novel." This book has the twist that the buddies are women, competent in their fields of expertise. Add to it the sorceress has a magical sword takes over the fighting for her and that negates most of the bad side of being a mage (an actual physical attack will distract or disable most mages in a lot of fiction) so the warrior doesn't have to spend all her time making sure her sworn sister is safe and the stories become more believable.

There is a sequel and short stories associated with the original book. These are collected in the ebook Tarma and Kethry, making it easy to read everything associated with the characters.

This is highly recommended. You don't have to be familiar with the rest of the Valdemar books to enjoy these. ( )

Having read some Tarma-and-Kethry stories in german translations of Sword and Sorcress, I already knew the characters and setting (and one of the chapters in this book). This book gave a more complete picture and I really liked that. What cost it the fifth star was, that it somehow retains the feeling of a set of short stories throughout the whole novel. ( )
