My off-the-cuff response is that it doesn't sound promising, but that it might work for some books. To me, the phrase has a sort of wild-west, fairy-tale feel to it -- willfully archaic, like we're settling around a gold rush camp fire to hear a story. It's sort of hard to judge it out of context. Maybe you should give us the whole draft blurb?
Other possibilities: listen up, now get this, settle in, turn your ear to, let me tell you ...
It's for a book about a larger than life female warrior. Like Achilles/Beowulf larger than life:
Harken back to the epic legends of old with the tale of Rose, a mighty warrior torn between her desire to use her strength for good and her longing for a peaceful life.
A young woman with a considerate heart and extraordinary constitution, Rose becomes a warrior in hopes of bettering the world. Despite the wealth and fame she wins as one of the greatest champions of her time, the bloody reality of her new life is nothing like her ideal dream, and she yearns for a chance to escape the violence.
Unexpectedly, she finds it when she meets Ethan, the leader of an altruistic pacifist group. It - and Ethan - are exactly what her weary spirit needs. But when a barbarian horde invades their kingdom, Rose knows that she can make a difference by taking up her sword again. Yet doing so would put her relationship with Ethan at risk. Will her need to protect her homeland cost her the man she loves?
