This was a very good story, but the way it was written seemed to be very amateur. The author seemed to skip over some of the most important parts of the books, and sometimes not go into enough detail or leave me very confused.
The Author of this book is Ian Serraillier and the book's original title was The Silver Sword
I read this book as a fifth grader and have never forgetten it. I couldn't tell you the story line now if my life depended on it, but I will never forget how much I enjoyed it. I got in trouble several time for reading ahead in class and then not knowing where the class was when it was my turn to read aloud. LOL
