Out now!

Have Sword, Will Travel, the first book in a new series with Garth Nix. Set in a world where girls can be knights as well as boys, a long-lost enchanted sword sweeps Eleanor and Odo off an adventure not entirely of their making. Spoiler alert: dragon!

“a fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek adventure . . . filled with action and humor”
– Publishers Weekly

“A true-blue errant-knight tale, complete with dragons, sassy enchanted objects, and a destiny that comes before anyone is ready … Hand to just about any middle-grader looking for a swashbuckling adventure.”
– Booklist

“challenges the gender norms of the genre. Lovers of classic fantasy should enjoy this”
– School Library Journal

“En garde for an implied sequel that is already too bloody far away.”
– Kirkus

“With Garth Nix and Sean Williams at the helm, it’s no surprise this laugh-out-loud adventure is one boys and girls will love. Highly recommended for ages 9+!”
