This tale is written for younger readers with birds of all types as the characters. The evil bird lord is a one eyed hawk who bullies and leads an army of renegade crows and ravens. His goal is to rule the nesting areas and enslave other birds to build his fortress and compound. All other birds are the good guys and the young reader may be searching for a bird guide to see what these birds look like. The messages are peace, harmony and freedom The good birds are defended by Swordbird, summoned through the use of a special stone and a song. It's a fun read that parents and grandparents would enjoy sharing with the children in their lives.

Not far outside of Stone-Run Forest an evil bird, Lord Turnatt, is gaining power. He's using slavebirds to build a fortress. And his thieving has caused the Cardinal and Blue Jay tribes to declare war on each other, even though they've been friends for a very long time. Little do the Cardinals and Blue Jays know that a much worse enemy is preparing an attack.

If the Cardinals and Blue Jays are going to survive, they'll need to work together. With help from unexpected friends, escaped prisoners, and the mythical Swordbird, they just might make it through, and defeat Lord Turnatt. It will take the talents and abilities of many to overpower evil. But if they can discover how to call Swordbird, they know they can survive.

SWORDBIRD is an animal adventure that's not just good versus evil, it's about faith and friendship, too. This book is fun and easy for younger kids, especially since the author is (or was when she wrote it) a twelve-year-old girl!
