Cover Reveal: The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon @aharmon_author
Swallow, daughter, pull them
in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide
them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not,
cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on
heaven or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, daughter. Stay
The day my mother was killed,
she told my father I wouldn’t
and she told him if I died, he
would die too.
Then she predicted the king
would sell his soul and lose his only son to the sky.
My father has a claim to the
throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come
to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.
But freedom will require
escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t
speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land
purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever
love . . . a little bird?

Times Bestselling author. Amy knew at an early age that writing was
something she wanted to do, and she divided her time between writing songs and
stories as she grew. Having grown up in the middle of wheat fields without a
television, with only her books and her siblings to entertain her, she
developed a strong sense of what made a good story. Her books are now being
published in twelve countries, truly a dream come true for a little country
girl from Levan, Utah.
Amy Harmon has written ten novels - the USA Today Bestsellers,
Making Faces and Running Barefoot, as well as The Law of Moses, The Song of
David, Infinity + One, Slow Dance in Purgatory, Prom Night in Purgatory, and
