Format: Paperback
Author Terry W. Ervin II takes readers back to the complicated world of Mercenary Flank Hawk (Krish) in the compelling sequel Blood Sword: A First Civilization's Legacy Novel. The Necromancer King is in retreat with defenders of the kingdom of Keese in pursuit. War has taken a heavy toll on both sides and the Keese Kingdom has been weakened and is vulnerable. Prince Reveron has been worried about a possible attack through one of several passages through Pyrenees Mountains. While others, including those in the military, scoffed at the threat Grand Wizard Seelain had volunteered to go watch. She took Flank Hawk with her as her guard.

Good thing on both aspects they are there to see, not only the first troop movements of the coming invasion, but the fact that the invaders have local assistance. Barely escaping with their lives they make it back to the King's City to discover the attack is fully underway. It isn't taking just the form of land invasion. Led by Fendra Jolain, Goddess of Healing, those with the magical power to heal others have either fled or used their magical skills to attack those around them. In the carnage it is clear that few with magical skills, healing or otherwise, remain committed to the kingdom of Keese and its people. Instead, they have allied themselves with the powerful Fendra Jolain who has chosen this moment when her two most dangerous foes are weakened to attack.

For anyone to survive and for the kingdom of Keese to be saved, Flank Hawk, Grand Wizard Seelain and others will have to make a perilous journey to the western continent. Their quest is to once again locate the immortal Colonel of the West and negotiate the return of the Blood Sword. A magical weapon with deeply evil properties it represents their only chance to survive.

Format: Paperback
In this sequel to FLANK HAWK, the war against the Kingdom of Keesee continues as a new enemy enters into the foray. Fendra Jolain, the Goddess of Healing, sends her army of men and magical beasts against King Tobias' forces. The war is brutal and even with allies, the king knows he needs a miracle or strong magic to win against the hordes of beasts sent against him. To stop the goddess, he needs the magic of an ancient relic, the Blood Sword; the only weapon that can kill Fendra Jolain. King Tobias once again sends mercenary Flank Hawk, scout Lilly, air wizard, Seelain, and a small contingent of fighters to retrieve the weapon from the immortal Colonel of the West.

The challenges the group faces as they travel across Keesee seem insurmountable, but through sheer determination and a bit of luck along the way, they make it across the ocean to Outpost 4 where they can ask the Colonel for the sword. But all is not well for the Colonel either. He's struggling in a war on the western continent and the communication system at Outpost 4 is destroyed forcing Flank Hawk and his group to travel overland to reach the Colonel at his central outpost. Along the way they meet more magical beasts: ogres, satyrs, and centaur warriors. The author does a great job melding all of these magical beasts into the story of war, loss, loyalty and friendship. Used as a pawn in the war of magic, Flank Hawk steadfastly refuses to give up as death and destruction pile up around him. His indomitable spirit shines bright and the final battle between the princes of Keesee and Fendra Jolain is riveting.

I would recommend that you first read "Flank Hawk" Book 1 in the Lost Civilization's Legacy series to fully enjoy and understand the genius of the author as he takes you on a journey that once again follows Flank Hawk and his friends as they face unbeatable odds to save the Kingdom of Keesee.

Blood Sword is the follow up novel to Flank Hawk in the First Civilization's Legacy series. The story picks up after the defeat of the Necromancer King with the forces of Fendra Jolain, Goddess of Healing, making a move. Flank Hawk has been assigned to the Grand Wizard Seelain, the Prince's fiance, as a personal bodyguard and it is a duty that he takes very seriously. There is also the issue of his secret healing powers. If it were known that he had any ability to manipulate healing energy he would have been turned over to the healers for full training with them, regardless of what he wants. With the conflict between the two kingdoms he really has no idea what will happen if his powers are revealed. To add another wrinkle to the situation his sister was taken by the healers years ago and he has no idea what has happened to her.

The one thing that I wish the book had was a greater involvement of Road Toad. He was one of my favorite's from the first book and while still involved, his part has been reduced quite a bit. The rest of the gang is still present including the always entertaining Lily. On the journey to retrieve the Blood Sword we are treated to a more in depth view of the Crusader society. Terry continues to write an excellent series filled with wonderful characters, exciting locations, and crazy battle scenes.

Format: Kindle Edition
I'm somewhat surprised that I'm the first to write a review of this excellent book since it's several months' after its release. Perhaps it's because it slipped out into publication with little fanfare. The author really needs to get with it and learn the rules of independent publishing...namely, any release needs to include having 10-20 glowing reviews posted from shills so that the book can make the "most popular" filters of the Amazon website. Well I'm going to post what I hope is a glowing review, but I'm no shill.

This book is the second book of what I guess the author is now calling the "First Civilization's Legacy" series. The first book was the equally excellent "Flank Hawk". The series chronicles the story of the series' main character, a young mercenary who gains the nickname Flank Hawk, in his adopted nation's fight for national survival during a world war among nations, gods, and demi-gods. What adds to the uniqueness of the story is the post-apocalyptic world in which the conflict is set. The setting is several thousand years after the demise of our present world. However, it is also a world changed by an "interdimensional rift" created in the cataclysm that destroyed our world...a change that has given reality to every mythical creature ever known and immortality/godhood to some survivors of the apocalypse that destroyed our present world.

The first book, "Flank Hawk", depicted our protagonist's rise from a militiaman in a petty lord's army to a trusted mercenary defending key figures in the nation he has adopted as that nation fights with swords/magic the forces of an evil necromancer king (zombies, ogres, goblins armed with WW II panzers/Stuka dive bombers).
