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
