  • Great tale of action, mysticism, humor, and romanc

    This is an interesting short story about the legendary figure Lu Yan who is awakened from a dead drunk by a beautiful woman warning him that a horde of demons are coming. While he seems to be no more than an amiable traveling womanizer, Lu Yan knows what to do to protect those at this wayside inn. He just needs the confidence to pull it off. This short story is packed with action, mysticism, humor, and unexpected romance. I'm looking forward to the further adventures of Lu Yan. I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An Exciting, Action Packed Short Story

    Lu Yan wakens from a drunken stupor just in time to be warned of danger by a beautiful stranger. As he and the woman face the attacking demons, Lu Yan is forced to confront who he has become and much to consider. I jumped at being able to read an early copy of this short story, curious when author Jeannie Lin called it her first Wuxia story despite having only a vague notion of what that might mean. What I found was an exciting and instantly immersive tale of a swordsman, his sword, and magic that evoked fantasy, folk tale, and myth. Lu Yan is a bit of a rascal, the lady is intriguing, his sword is missing, and they are vastly outnumbered. A recipe for a highly enjoyable short from Jeannie Lin that I highly recommend (and hope for more). This review refers to an uncorrected digital copy that I voluntarily received from the author. A positive review was not required and these are only my own honest opinions.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Beautifully evocative

    The Tale of the Drunken Sword by Jeannie Lin is a beautifully written novella. Mythical, mystical, mysterious, this elegant piece captivates with allure, teases with wit, satisfies with verve. Lu Yan wakes after a night of revelry when a quietly insistent visitor urges him to prepare for the imminent battle against evil spirits descending on their inn. Feeling off kilter, he and this incredible woman face off against seemingly endless foes. Fortunately not all is as it seems... Jeannie Lin’s story will keep you mesmerized from the first word to the last. Don’t miss this!

    Thanks for your feedback!
