the blurb

This exciting new anthology includes a new novella featuring Mercedes Lackey's most popular heroines, Tarma (one of the sword-sworn and most feared of all warriors) and Kethry (who wields magic and weapons for the greater good), whose fates are suddenly bound together in blood by the powers that control their destinies. Also included in the unique volume is the complete collection of Lackey's short stories about these two brave sisters as they answer the call of their destinies with sword and sorcery!

my review

Oathblood is a collection of short stories centered on Tarma and Kethry. Some of them are chapters from the first book, The Oathbound, reprinted in their original form. But the collection also contains several new stories that add a lot to the overall story of Tarma and Kethry, taking us farther into their lives. There’s also an intro by the author to the stories, which lends a bit of a behind-the-scene feel to the book. All in all, a good collection that adds depth to two of my favorite characters!
