A lovely review!

A Girl Named Cord has just received such a lovely review!


“If I may start this review with a kind of comparison – I recall reading something Joss Whedon wrote once which, if I paraphrase correctly, said something like ‘you make a great drama by taking people that the reader cares for and putting them in peril’.  He might also have said of his work that throwing in a redemptive story arc also adds to the mix very well.  And in doing so you’d have about as good a description of Briana Vedsted’s ‘A Girl Named Cord’ as you could get.

She creates heart-warming, real characters, introducing them in a gentle and thoroughly likeably way at the commencement of the story, but with some hints and foreshadowing of the conflict yet to come.  And just when you’re really invested in these characters, the conflict comes in full force, with real drama and high stakes action that is compelling and unputdownable.  Then we have a resolution for a time before the past rises again to be reckoned with, for good or ill.

Cord is a lively and kind character with real strength and strong principles and she takes us on a merry ride through the tale.  She makes a great heroine for a wonderful YA western novel and I found myself visualising her tale like a movie, so strong was the impact of Briana’s writing.  I’ve liked Briana’s earlier work very well, but see real progression in this novel.  Her writing and story-telling ability is growing apace, just like the speed and vividness of her novel.  I recommend the novel highly to those that love YA books, westerns, and really anything with high stakes drama, redemption, and a warmth in characters that brings a genuine tear to the eye.”


Thank you so much to Helen Valentina for this wonderful review!!!
