Overview

The last thing Wallie Smith remembered was a fog of hospitals, grim-faced doctors, and pain. So when he woke in the body of a barbarian swordsman, attended by a beautiful slave girl and a wizened old priest nattering about the Goddess, he assumed it was a fever-dream.

But the World could not be dismissed so lightly. A naked little demigod called Shorty explained that the Goddess needed a swordsman. If Wallie undertook the job and succeeded, all that World had to offer would be his. If he refused, the results would be...unpleasant.

Wallie was not convinced, but Shorty was exquisitely persuasive. Soon Wallie found himself bearing a magnificent sword, with no idea how to use it — and the servants of the Goddess were out to stop him.

I enjoyed this book a lot, even as an earlier work for a favorite author. A little inconsistent early on, but it smooths out and is explained easily. This is one of my favorite authors, and I do my best to support him.

This story is well written with a good story line. It develops as all stories should, to an actual climax. But the best thing about it is it has a storyline that carries into 2 more books which each develop into a better and better story that is fun and entertaining. Highly recommended for any fantasy fan. I've read it 3 times.

Not worth it. The writing quality is more than poor, and the story unoriginal. I feel like I'm reading a Piers Anthony (*gag*) book.
