Publisher's Summary

Sarah Beauhall has more on her plate than most 20-somethings: day job as a blacksmith, night job as a props manager for low-budget movies, and her free time is spent fighting in a medieval re-enactment group. The lead actor breaks Sarah's favorite one-of-a-kind sword, and to avoid reshooting scenes, Sarah agrees to repair the blade. One of the extras, who claims to be a dwarf, offers to help. And that's when things start to get weird.
Could the sword really be magic, as the "dwarf" claims? Are dragons really living among us as shapeshifters? And as if things weren't surreal enough, Sarah's girlfriend Katie breaks out the dreaded phrase... "I love you." As her life begins to fall apart, first her relationship with Katie, then her job at the movie studio, and finally her blacksmithing career, Sarah hits rock bottom. It is at this moment, when she has lost everything she has prized, that one of the dragons makes their move. And suddenly what was unthinkable becomes all too real... and Sarah will have to decide if she can reject what is safe and become the heroine who is needed to save her world.

Great Expectations

I really enjoyed this book. While I agree with other reviewers in that the story could use some polish, the characters and their quirky lives make this a book series I look forward to with great expectations.
Some people may find this book a bit scatter shot and the personal growth the main character experiences is extensive; but I feel it creates a strong foundation that this series can build upon. I can't wait for the next installment.

Great Concept and World Building

Where does Black Blade Blues rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is among the top of the list of books I have listened to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sarah of course but I also like all of the other supporting characters

Which character – as performed by Erin Bennett – was your favorite?

she did a great job with all of them

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both could be very entertaining and very emotional.

Any additional comments?

I would like more in this series

Major Consent Issues

A drunk person who is magically outside of their own body cannot consent! This book has some serious issues with misogyny and rape. I was trying to enjoy this book, but I reached a point where I just couldn't deal with it anymore.
