Description - The Edge on the Sword by Rebecca Tingle
An adventure worthy of legend, for fans of Game of Thrones and Ranger's Apprentice When fifteen-year-old AEthelflaed is suddenly and reluctantly betrothed to an ally of her father, the king, her world will never be the same. For as a noblewoman in the late 800s, she will be expected to be meek and unlearned and Flaed is anything but meek and unlearned. Her marriage will bring peace to her land, but while her royal blood makes her a valuable asset, she is also a vulnerable target. And when enemies attack, Flaed must draw upon her skills and fight to lead her people to safety and prove her worth as a princess and as a warrior. "Tingle's graceful, tightly plotted narrative is . . . an enthralling tale. A first-rate example of historical fiction." Booklist "
