Publisher's Summary

Two siblings.

Outcasts for life...together.

What could possibly go wrong?

Vocho and Kacha are champion duelists: a brother and sister known for the finest swordplay in the city of Reyes. Or at least they used to be - until they were thrown out of the Duelist's Guild.

As a last resort, they turn reluctant highwaymen. But when they pick the wrong carriage to rob, their simple plans to win back fame and fortune go south fast.

After barely besting three armed men and a powerful magician, Vocho and Kacha make off with an immense locked chest. But the contents will bring them much more than they've bargained for when they find themselves embroiled in a dangerous plot to return an angry king to power....

Swords and Scoundrels is the first book in The Duelist's Trilogy - a tale of death, magic, and family loyalty.

    "Enjoyable"

    Less about the sword play, and more about the relationship of two siblings. Swords and Scoundrels is a surprisingly good character drama (which I did not expect). My only criticism would be that there were far too many Britishisms in the dialogue. Besides that, I recommend it to readers who want a light, quick fantasy read.

    Story
    "World was full of depth, Characters lacked depth"
    Any additional comments?

    The world and plot were very creative and obviously quite well thought out. Although at the same time most of the characters in the book lacked any kind of depth or intelligence.
