I have a paperback offering in the fantasy genre, posted 10/20/2007
The Troll's Grindstone,  by Elizabeth Boyer
To escape his enemies, Leifr agreed to impersonate the long-lost Fridmarr. But Fridmarr was one of the Alfar, as Leifr learned when he was taken into the legendary Alfar realm and given a magic jewel to aid the deception.
To save himself, Leifr needed only get his hands on a certain magic sword and then find the troll's grindstone to sharpen it. But Sorkvir had hidden the grindstone. And the magic sword was hanging on the wall of Sorkvir's throne room!
Order this book and take any TWO additional from my regular shelf.

Birds of Prey (A Courtney Family Adventure) :: Wilbur Smith


This is actually a very good book. Historical, high-seas adventure. If you've ever read Smith you'll know he does historicals very well. I also have his novel, River God (another historical) and Seventh Scroll (a present day suspense that correlates with River God) on my bookshelf. Also very good books!

If you are interested in Birds of Prey I'll offer a 2/1 deal on it, order this book and get any other off my shelf for free.
