I recently finished this book - The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley - which is the first in it’s series. I highly recommend it. It’s a really good read for anyone who enjoys fantasy stories. I have also read the second book in this series, The Hero and the Crown (I know I didn’t read them in order. I found the book in my house and read it without knowing any better). It’s one of my favorite books of all time, though, so there’s that.
