I have owned this book for a couple of years and i never get tired of reading it. It is my favorite out of the two books. Lots of adventure and i also love the illistrations. Great for readers 9-13. I think it is amazing that the author was so young when she wrote this book. She is a very talented young girl. I would definately reccommend this book to readers young and old. It it great for bird lovers also. Wind-voice is a young dove who loses his mother. He is taken into captivity by the bad birds. He serves them as a slave until he meets a bird there and together they escape from them. There were (in the beginning of the book), stones, that dropped from the sky. One of them fell into a magical sword that a pheonix king made to bring peace. Whoever finds the sword will be a great and powerfull bird. The bad bird finds out about this and wants to find it before the destined hero so he can be the ruler. Wind voice has to find it before he does in order for the hero to claim it. Little does he know that the hero is really himself. Thats as good as i can do explaining it. It is better than it sounds. I know you will enjoy the book as much as i did! God bless!!!

Nancy Yi Fan is an author that knows a lot about birds. Her story had a lot of descriptive words and plenty of action, but not only did the action end as soon as it started - but the book itself did not keep me at the edge of my seat. Was it a good book? Sure. But in the beginning, it was confusing because Nancy hardly detailed about the setting, the birds and such. I understand Nancy's desire for peace, but I really don't think Swordbird was the best book I've ever read. It was okay, and I enjoyed reading it but I would not reccommend it to anyone else. This is only my opinion, but I urge people to read this book and decide for themselves.

The book I’m going to tell you about is sword quest. This book is about a band of heroes or birds rather that are at a last stand to bring the bird world back to what it used to be. My favorite part of the book is when they find the island of parades. I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy and animal books. mas

I think it shows detail and adventure. I thought it was very facinating that a 12 year old wrote this masterpiece. Even though it is the prequal to Sword Bird, it is a very good book.

The first thing to remember when picking up this book is that the author is young (13), so there are some descriptions and sentence structures that seem a little too simple. However, the book is a decent length with beautiful illustrations and a varied vocabulary which make up for its (very few) faults. The story follows Wind-Voice and his friends as they embark on a quest to find a hero and end the oppression of the archaeopteryxes, a kind of toothed prehistoric bird. The author crams a lot of plot into 212 pages, and I think that both reluctant readers and young readers would enjoy this book as a summer read.

I'm sorry i didn't really read this book, but i looked at the cover and thought " This 30-year old person must have wrote a pretty good book. " Then I looked at the back of the book and saw a 12 year old girls picture. That insprired me to keep writing my book. I am also 12 and love books. I am writing a story and didn't know if i'd finish it and if i did would it get into a library? But this inpired me to actually create an account and write this review. Thanks for writing this book, Zack

This book is okay, as I said in the title. There are some story mistakes that messed it up and got me thinking, though. It has good illustrations, and they look 1% cartoonish to me, like with shiny eyes and etc, and has a good/okay plot, but with some small mistakes that sorta mess it up.

I read the first book by Nancy Yi Fan- Swordbird- and didn't like it that much since it basicaly fllows the same story line as redwall and was really really predictable. I read this thinking it might be better but found nothing new.
