Overview

The spirit of the ancient champion, Sorahb was reborn into the body of a deghan youth, who raised an army of peasants to resist their Hrum conquerors.

Sorya, Kavi, and Jiann do everything they can to keep control of what little land remains free from Hrum rule. They have most of the peasantry, a small, untrained army, and the Suud helping them, but there is still one important piece missing: a sword that is able to withstand the Hrums’ watersteel. Without it, Farsala will fall.

But what none of these young heroes can foresee is the growing desperation of the Hrum leaders. It will lead them to break some of their own laws and sacred pacts. It will also reveal truths about the nature of war, the nature of human beings, and – most important – themselves.

This trilogy is one of the best I have ever read. I am 16 and read all three in 2 months. The story line is so original and creative it never gets old. The way the characters are described and getting to see everything from their point of view was fascinating. By the second book you feel like you know these characters so well like they could be your best friend at school. These are quickly becoming *almost* my favorite books! Keep writing, you are fabulous. Any hope for a fourth installment?? :)

I LOVED this book. After reading the previous two, I was so excited to read this one. I won't spoil the ending (cause I haven't quite reached it yet) so everyone has to read it!!

This book was an amazing read. After reading the first two books of the Farsala Trilogy, I was absolutley swept in and couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I totally reccomend it to anyone who likes an exciting adventure story.

At last! I have been waiting with bated breath for the third novel in the Farsala trilogy since I read the last word of Fall of a Kingdom three years ago. For the most part, Forging the Sword justified my years of loyal day-dreaming. On a scale of one to ten it deserves a 9.98. The human truths and the realism of the characters do not quite achieve the resounding depth in this book that they reached in the first two Farsala novels--but they are only a point or two off Bell's previous high marks. And the final climactic scene of the book kept me awake late at night to read it and made my heart beat faster. The slight disappointments in Forging the Sword do not detract from my love of my new favorite trilogy on earth, or my devotion to the author. I want to read more!
