Overview

The Death of Nnanji (Seventh Sword Series #4) by Dave Duncan

For fifteen years, the truce has held. Swordsmen of the Tryst of Casr have kept the peace and extended the rule of law over half the world, but now sorcerers have started killing swordsmen again, and swordsmen traitors are aiding them. Shonsu—who was Wallie Smith before he became a swordsman of the seventh rank and liege lord of the Tryst—must once more gird on the seventh sword of Chioxin, and this time he rides out to fight the war that he hoped would never come. As he leads his army forth, its two most junior members are Vixini, son of Shonsu, and Addis, son of Nnanji, who has an oath of vengeance to fulfill. Their failure or success will determine the fate of the world for the next thousand years.

Guess you just can't go back. Predictable and wordy. It was nice to glimpse what happened after but didnnt have the depth in the characters that I loved in the originals

The book gives closure to the original series, taking up where the trilogy ended. The new characters where not as defined as the original, more one dimensional. Story read well, was a quick read. A must for fans of the original swordsman trilogy.

Excellent addition to the original series. Can't help but feel a little "shorted" because we all want to know more details of what has happened in the last 15 years. Definitely a great ending for those of us who wondered about Nnanji's reign and the gods conversation with Wallie at the end of Book 3 . I won't say more because to don't want this to be a spoiler but I definitely recommend reading it. Dave Duncan fantasy books are among my all time favorites and I have read ALOT of fantasy books.

Good addition to the series... fell a bit short, perhaps, when compared to the first three books but still very much worth the read - definitely ends the story though.

Paced her ears laid back. She took a deep breath a bit annoyed.
