The strong point of this book is the recurring theme of Bryant's misadventures and how he turns potentially disastrous encounters into opportunities to grow and shine. As he stumbles into embarrassing and often dangerous situations, his instinctive desire to do the right thing leads him to make decisions that protect others and help his fellow soldiers. All this he does with no eye for gaining glory; in fact, the attention his deeds bring leaves him uncomfortable and looking for a place to hide. Bryant' strength is that he is real. He struggles to do right and and is his own worst critic.

In a market full of voices clamoring for your attention, Baird's has a sincerity to it that comes from real talent. In Creiton's Sword we see the beginning of the saga of Bryant of Bren, who goes from an uncertain adolescent farmboy to one of Duke Creiton's personal bodyguard far before he is ready to accept the responsibility. Bryant is part of the levy, or drafted soldiers, from a farming community under Duke Creiton's control. During the course of battle he finds himself in the odd position of catching the lord's eye. This has its good points and bad, neither of which Bryant is sure he wants to explore further. He grows from an inexperienced, green troop into one of the 'old hands' in less time than even he expects, and his voyage into manhood is a fascinating journey. 'Creiton's Sword' reaches down into your soul and pulls out that which we all have that craves to know who we might be if we were given half a chance.
