The legendary Hercules possesses a strength the world has never seen . . . a strength surpassed only by the power of his heart.
By the Sword
When the Fire, the mighty sword of Hephaestus, falls into the hands of thugs determined to use its power against the innocent, Hercules is tasked by the gods to find and return the fearsome weapon to its owner.
With time running short, Hercules must face an encampment of armed bandits ready to put his super-human strength to the test . . . but will he be able to return the Fire before Hephaestus’ anger erupts?
Invited to judge a local beauty pageant, Hercules and his trusted companion Iolaus little suspect that they are fodder for the Klothon, a vicious serpent that feeds on the unwitting winners of the pageant.
As Hercules’ suspicions grow, he is forced to call upon his powerful relatives—the gods of Olympus—to help him release the village from the Klothon’s evil grip.
