    1. I m not sure why I keep reading this series The writng is pedantic There s so many interesting possibilities that could be done with the swords and their abilities and restrictions , yet very little happens The characters mainly just wander around, say they re confused by this new and mysterious turn of events and eventually have a minor battle at the conclusion of the book.Same as last book Probably the same as the next book.


    2. Not as good as I remembered The premise has stuck with me for over twenty years, but upon re reading, the lack of charter development really hindered my enjoyment of this series.


    3. This book starts off with probably my least liked plot device EVER a kidnapping If you ve ever talked books with me, you may have heard me swear up and down about how much I hate kidnappings because they inevitably just waste time Character is kidnapped, hundreds or pages are wasted on the rescue, plot continues You always know they will be rescued, so the way is just interminable to me I know, I m impatient.That being said, there are a few times when kidnappings work There was one in particular [...]


    4. In The Second Book of Lost Swords Sightblinder s Story, Saberhagen finally gives a name and a face to the Ancient One introduced in the First Book of Lost Swords Woundhealer s Story to the realm of the Swords.This story follows Yambu, Zoltan and Ben as they attempt to use Sightblinder, a god forged sword that causes it s bearer to take on the appearance of the most loved or hated figures in the imaginations of those who behold him or her , to save Mark of Tasavalta from a mysterious wizard who h [...]


    5. A lot better than The First Book of Lost Swords Woundhealer s Story the saga goes back from fairy tales to a adventure genre, I think this is one of the better sword books so far.Saberhagen must have had some thing with book number 2 All his second series books I did read so far were much better than 1 and 3.As always in the sword books, some characters are completely absent while others make a comeback and new ones are introduced The development of the characters is good enough, Ben and Drafut [...]


    6. Well, at least this story had about the sword a lot than the first book of the series I found the plot pretty unsatisfying though Some poor village boy is trying to do a good deed for his village, finds himself tangled up with a mad woman, and dies for it Not that I would have believed him as the hero , but it was rather sad and disappointing There was the return of characters from the first book in the series, but they are still mainly wooden with little roundness So while I was happy to see [...]


    7. I read the Sword books in high school I remember liking them and enjoying having the magic revolve around the weapon rather than a person In this series I remember liking some books than others so some of them should probably be rated 4 stars but I don t remember which were the better ones, it has been too many years This will be the same review for all of the books in the series except for the last two which were published after I left high school and so were not read at the same time.


    8. The titles of these books is misleading because it s not really Sightblinder s Story It s just a continuation of the characters from the first trilogy Even though I enjoyed it, this book annoyed me because Sightblinder is different than in previous books The idea of the person holding the sword shape shifting in front of people s eyes almost continuously for no apparent reason is lame.


    9. Another one of Saberhagen s such a perfect name for this series Swords books this one drags in places, and I don t feel particularly invested in Zoltan, one of the PoV characters Ben and the Silver Queen are much interesting characters, and don t get enough screen time.


    10. see first book of swords for my review of the series Its been a while so I may blunder but I seem to recall there weren t any exceptions to the awesomeness outside of the fact that the first three were a little slower than the rest.




    11. Again, I liked the characters in this book Also in this volume, many people band together to overthrow the bad guy There was no one hero.


    12. The fight between Shieldbreaker and Sightblinder is what makes this volume three stars rather than two D


    13. Although I was recommended this series, I found these to be a hard read Just couldn t get into it Perhaps if I d read Book 1 first, it might ve been easier.
