Editorial Reviews


"Blade's Edge has an intricate plot and the short chapters pave the way for a swift pace....Fantasy fans will definitely enjoy Blade's Edge." - Reader's Favorite Review (Five Stars)

"An excellent fantasy novel that will keep readers turning pages. It's refreshing to have a story with two female protagonists who are intelligent, brave, strong, and don't require a hunky male to rescue them at the last minute. This is the author's debut novel and she is one to keep an eye on." - Self Publishing Review (Five Stars)

"The success of this story comes from its originality and vivid portrayal of life for two orphan girls...I quickly became fascinated with not just the plight of Taka and Mishi, but by the culture in which they lived. The world created by Virginia McClain is so utterly realistic. Beautiful. Violent. Unfair." - Phil Parker's SPFBO review of Blade's Edge on The Qwillery

This is an amazing novel and deserved finalist of #SPFBO5. It is a story about female empowerment set in a world which is so utterly real and so thoroughly ruthless. Its two female protagonists break the usual tropes with originality, they're so engaging too! GET THIS BOOK!!" - Phil Parker Author and SPFBO 5 Judge

About the Author

Virginia thinks dangling from the tops of hundred foot cliffs is a good time. She also enjoys hauling a fifty pound backpack all over the Grand Canyon and sleeping under the stars. Sometimes she likes running for miles through the desert, mountains, or wooded flatlands, and she always loves getting lost in new places where she may or may not speak the language. From surviving earthquakes in Japan, to putting out a small forest fire in Montana, Virginia has been collecting stories from a very young age. She works hard to make her fiction as adventurous as her life and her life as adventurous as her fiction. Both take a lot of imagination. She recently moved to Winnipeg with her husband and their dog.
