Ce In desperation he agrees to be drafted into an eternal war serving as a priest of the Bright Lady Goddess of Healing But when Marcius god of war offers the only hope of a way home to his wife Christopher pledges to him instead plunging the church into turmoil and setting him on a path of violence and notorie. Christopher Sinclair wakes from an interesting dream into a interesting dilemma He is in an alternate reality a world eerily similar and yet markedly different to ours The sleepy village he finds himself in appears to be stuck in the medieval age but for certain marvels This ‘magic’ apportioned by a substance known as ‘tael’ affects the very way society operates marking the most startling differences The higher the rank the magic a practitioner commandsOn his first day in this new world not uite given over to the fact he has left his own world rather Christopher believes himself the displaced victim of a plane crash Our hero manages to transgress several laws while coming to the defence of a young woman He does not know that striking a nobleman even to save a young woman’s virtue is a serious crime punishable by death He is summoned by church officials and interviewed By the time his audience with Saint Krellyan is finished two things are clear Christopher is no longer in Arizona or anyone on his Earth and he’s in deeper troubleSome legal finagling puts off his death but there is a cost Christopher must serve three years in the ‘draft’ at the front lines He agrees seeing no other way to stay alive long enough to find a way home He is given a rank and inducted into the local religion where he will serve a priest to the Bright Lady the goddess of healing The Bright Lady’s consort Marcius god of war has other plans for him howeverWhile preparing for war Christopher succeeds in than arming his cadre of young draftees with improved weaponry In slow steps he organises an industrial revolution But not everyone appreciates his forward thinking or his methodology Then there are the duellists who want a crack at his magic sword grudge bearing nobleman and a mysterious assassin who wants to know all of his secrets‘Sword Of The Bright Lady’ is a really fun read The magic system alone is fascinating While on the surface of things it seems like the usual mana to spell deal depending on the rank of the wielder it’s actually a little complicated than that A little fun too By about half way through the book I had decided that MC Planck had found a way to truly fictionalise a table top gaming experience Bodies are looted and experience and goods apportioned according to who struck the killing blow and rank of course So characters gain tael and magical items by defeating foes Tael can be used to regenerate limbs raise the dead or elevate rank War is a numbers game A host of commoners or unranked draftees might keep an enemy’s attention long enough for a few higher ranked noblemen to cast devastating spells So the life of a commoner is not considered worth muchThis is where the gap in society comes into play Without a rank you’re cannon fodder Christopher is from our world though and he’s idealistic to boot The thought of riding to war on the backs of near defenceless young men horrifies him So he changes the formula Christopher uses his tael in new and interesting ways that outrage and scandalise his companions and enemies and his revolutionary methods expose what isn’t so well hidden and ignored You’ll have to read the book to find out what that isI highly recommend ‘Sword Of The Bright Lady‘ for fans of sword and sorcery epic fantasy and alternative reality as well as table top gamers Christopher is an engaging character who feels real as the pages turn His sense of wonder and humour both amused The cast of secondary characters are just as interesting and I’m looking forward to the continuing storyWritten for SFCrowsnest

Full Review at TenaciousReader have to admit; I found the concept of someone from our world landing in the middle of a medieval style fantasy story uite intriguing I mean really we spend our free time reading about such things but what would it really be like to wake up in one Dirty smelly and full of hard work Probably not near as much fun as reading So curiosity grabbed me pretty uick I couldn’t help but want to see how our protagonist Christopher one of us fared in this new strange worldAbout the magic in this world I actually found it uite interesting and disturbing To gain magical ability you collect something called tael Cool right It can even be used as a type of currency purchasing favors from priests as well as social status Just find a way to harvest tael and you can advance do magic become superhuman in fights making it near on impossible for mundane non magical people to harm you and if they do well just use some tael and heal yourself Sounds awesome Let’s find some taelWell it’s cool until you find out that tael is harvested from the dead Then there's some interesting uestions about the power and status attained from tael versus the cost of acuiring itChristopher seems to know a lot of convenient things when he gets there Things that help advance the technology of the world I have to admit part of me felt like he knew a bit too much that it was all convenient than it should be But I also have to admit to knowing a couple people in real life that can spout out facts and information about things that I despite graduating from a College of Engineering see no reason to ever know There are some personalities in this world that just absorb information and are uite intrigued in the inner workings of basically everything Christopher must be one of those people because he seems to know an awful lot Perhaps it’s that personality trait that caused him to land in the middle of this strange worldI think this was a pretty strong debut I really enjoyed the premise and the way magic and status is handled Magic with a real cost At times things seemed a bit easy for our protagonist but hey I liked the rest of it enough I can easily overlook that When it comes down to it Sword of the Bright Lady was an enjoyable and intriguing read with an ending that has me interested and asking uestions until I get the chance to read the next one
