Thousands of years after a war so terrible that it changed the very laws of nature, gods and giants once again stalk the earth and play their games with human lives...

"Fred Saberhagen has always been one of the best writers in the business...THE FIRST BOOK OF SWORDS has adventure and intrigue, a carefully rationalized background...most of all it has Fred Saberhagen's narrative gifts."
-Stephen R. Donaldson, Author of THE ONE TREE

First in the series of the "Sword" books. Each of the twelve swords forged by Vulcan has a special power...and a special weakness. Magic and fantasy, and a plot that contains many surprises.

The gods have commisioned the making of powerful swords and have unleashed them on the world of man. The son of the blacksmith that forged the swords finds himself caught up in a powerstruggle for the swords and finds he cannot escape the weapons that destiny have tied to him. This is a good series and this book is one of the best. Great fantasy!

This book is superb. Saberhagen's skillful narration makes the story very engrossing. One of the finest works in the genre.
