The Sword is a great book thatís similar to the Lord of the Rings
trilogy in many ways. It has magical swords, dragons, and great evil that
attempts to destroy all of mankind, just like in the Lord Of The Rings.
The Book Of The Sword doesnít really have anything that puts it apart
from other books of this genre, good or bad, but I still canít wait to read
the next book in the series, The Circle of Stone. Before you read
this book, you should read the first in the series, The Coming Of Dragons,
otherwise you wonít understand this book as well. The first book contains
things like who Edmund and Elspeth are, and why they are together.
This reviewer gives The Book of the Sword 5 magical stars.
