Reviews for The Devils Blade (#3 Banners of Blood)

Alder's glorious romp draws inspiration from the already incredible life of 17th-century noblewoman and duellist Julie D'Aubigny, spinning a fast-paced tale of pacts with the Devil, love and revenge. * The i * If you're looking for swashbuckling, diabolical intrigue, class hatred and a rather touching lesbian romance, this is going to fill in your empty hours rather neatly. From backstage at the Paris Opera to the court of the Sun King himself, this bloody, funny and very literal bodice-ripper shows that the devil may have the best tunes, but Mark Alder runs him a close second. * Daily Mail *
