Matt's Blade

I am reading these Dave Duncan books, each subtitled A Chronicle of the King's Blades.

They are about these swordsmen who are magically bound to the king or one of the king's friends.

After the binding they will fight to the death for the king or whoever their ward is or die defending them. They always want to be with their wards or at least in sight of them. They generally go crazy when their wards are killed.

The binding magic involves the ward running a sword through the Blade's heart.

Judging by her moping whenever I leave her, Claren is more or less my Blade, and I did not need to run a sword through her heart.

Of course, I am not sure she'd kill or die for me.
