From the Inside Flap
f the Goddess
Wallie Smith had been dying on another world when the Goddess transferred his mind to the body of the barbarian swordsman Shonsu. Then She gave him the great, magical Sapphire Sword of Chioxin and sent him on a mission.
All he had to do was to lead the arrogant band of swordsmen to destroy the sorcerers and their Fire God.
Now Wallie discovered that he'd already tried it -- and been hopelessly defeated.
A few complications cropped up. Wallie's reputation was in tatters. His best friend and pupil was apparently planning to betray him. And if he won, he would doom all hope of progress and learning in this World of the Goddess -- doom the Goddess Herself.
It made an interesting kind of riddle. All he had to do was find the solution -- and survive, if he could! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The novels in Dave Duncan's "The Seventh Sword" series are:
1. The Reluctant Swordsman (The Seventh Sword Book 1)
2. The Coming of Wisdom (The Seventh Sword Book 2)
3. The Destiny of the Sword (The Seventh Sword Book 3)
4. The Death of Nnanji (The Seventh Sword Book 4)
The final book in this series, 'Destiny' isn't as easily read on its own as the first and middle books ('The Reluctant Swordsman' and 'The Coming of Wisdom'). However, this is that rare thing: a trilogy conclusion that really concludes the story. It's an happy ending, no fear -- and it leaves you feeling good and fulfilled, so there's no need for Duncan to write more. (It *could* be done, of course, as McCaffrey did with 'Nerilka's Story,' but it isn't a foregone conclusion that it will be -- or even should be.) Excellent reading; a real page-turner.
This one's rated 'G' by me.
The characters are definitely vibrant and rich in personality, though. My favorite was Katanji - you couldn't help but smile as he amassed a fortune on the sly through the series!
Definitely recommended as a short, entertaining series to enjoy with moderate re-read potential.
Well written, with characters you really relate to and get to know- I recommend this series to anyone, not just fantasy readers.
