Six of Swords
Irissa was the last of the sorcerous Torlocs, untutored in magic and abandoned upon this decaying world by her people. Kendric was one of the Six of Swords, gifted with a legendary weapon to guard the Realms from harm. But now he was an outcast, and his death was sought with reason by the other Five. Sorceress and swordsman, they were thrown together; each filled with ancient prejudices against the other. But only by combining her uncertain powers with his remaining skills could they survive. Survive they must, however. Rule was a world formed upon magic - but now magic was failing and there would soon be no place for it. And destiny in strange guise had chosen them to make one last stand against the dark forces that were waiting at the Gate of Valna, seeking to destroy their world

    The two stars is slightly ungenerous, I have to admit, but with limited options to choose from I opted to round the score downward rather than up. This must have been one of the first fantasy novels I read, about 30 years ago. I enjoyed it then and enjoyed re-reading it now. It's no mo...

    This is one of my favorite fantasy books. First read it as a teenager, and many times since then. Maybe I'll do an in-depth review the next time I read it. ...

    I so enjoyed this book 30 years ago! Having lost it over the years, I'm planning on buying a new copy of it, and its companions, to introduce my children to this particular world. Lots of excitement and adventure, but also, if I remember correctly, a great deal of growing up, learning ...

    Tried the first chapter. Had trouble with the archaic writing style and the way the plot plunged into trouble without any world-setting or back story. ...

    Just another fantasy book18 January 2013 Once again this is one of those books that I read a very long time ago that I pretty much remember nothing about (with the exception of the cover) and upon finishing it pretty much got tossed back onto the bookshelf to be forgotten forever. A qu...
