The Swashbuckler Contest
Book Giveaway ~ Starts 12/9 & Ends on 12/13
Swordplay features heavily in The King’s Sword, so in honor of C.J. Brightley’s Author Interview & Review, we are proud to introduce the Swashbuckler Contest. Who is your favorite sword wielder (or wielder of a swordlike weapon)? What is it that makes this swashbuckler your favorite?
Ms. Brightley agreed to kick off the contest by sharing her favorite.
C.J. Brightley’s favorite sword-wielder: Sir Percival Blakeney aka The Scarlet Pimpernel. He’s brave, passionate, and selfless. He takes on the persona of a simpleton in order to continue rescuing people from the guillotine incognito. He’s a hero and a natural leader. In the Scarlet Pimpernel books, he doesn’t use his sword much, although he’s quite skilled. I was first introduced to him through the 1982 movie starring Anthony Andrews as Percy, Jane Seymour as Marguerite, and Ian McKellan as Chauvelin, and near the end is a fantastic sword-fighting scene, complete with fashion jibes. Second (but only by a hair) is Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride, because he’s awesome.
