The Jigsaw Blade
(The Bizarre Blades Book 1)
He always dreamed of becoming a champion. But finding a mythical sword could cut his life short…
Finn Featherstone longs to trade in his paintbrush for a legendary Bizarre Blade. One day, after heroically rescuing a young girl and coming face-to-face with his sword-fighting idol, he is shocked to learn he is being drafted as a foot soldier. If that wasn’t bad enough, a few days later the army caravan he is apart of is attacked by a pack of sabertooth tigers. While trying to survive, Finn finds himself crashing through the ice where he mistakenly discovers a magical blade of his very own.
Introduced to a world of champions jealous of his random find, Finn struggles to master his sword’s sludge-spitting bad attitude. Surrounded by dubious allies, he must somehow find the courage to battle the prehistoric creatures that roam the land as well as trying to survive the freezing elements. And when a traitor takes down Finn’s fellow champions, the former painter must tame his angsty weapon in a hurry if he has any hope of winning the fight of his life.
Can Finn command his deranged blade before his dreams of glory come to a bloody end?
The Jigsaw Blade is the first book in the refreshingly unique Bizarre Blades sword and sorcery fantasy series. If you like plucky heroes, wacky humor, and ferocious prehistoric creatures, then you’ll love Stevie Collier’s swashbuckling tale.

I remember browsing reddit for some books to read, when I saw a beta test read that I could do. I signed up, and got a copy. I read it over the weekend, only putting it down for daily needs. The story is phenomenal, it makes you feel how uncaring this world is. How Esh feels. This story has stuck with me after I read it. Always at the back of my mind, it sits, bringing me shivers when I think back. Steve Collier is a great up and coming author, and is worth keeping an eye out for. - Wen (RRL Reviewer) - ★★★★★
I was very surprised by MR Collier's approach to the "fantasy genre" it was dark, and unapologetic and fearless! not the prince gets princess type of story, but one of hardship and class/racial bias that the main character overcomes.Well written and executed, this tale has become one of my favorite books this year..A definite must read.
