In ancient times a band of warriors escorted a young prince homeward. Only one warrior remained true. He watched helplessly as the others slew their young charge. Death seemed to claim him as well. But he awoke one thousand years later, brought back by the prophets of God to serve them once again as an invisible guardian. One of the prophets, an albino dragon, hatched human daughters out of eggs by giving them the life in his blood. The daughters sought out the traitor to bring him to repentance. Out of remorse for his sins, the traitor slew himself on a sword. Upon the daughters return their dragon father sent them to live in a far off forest. The youngest daughter fell in love and wed. But upon giving birth to a beautiful baby girl she gave up the life in her blood and died; making the ultimate sacrifice to bring a child of promise into the world.

Ember4 Stars Out Of 5Good beginning to an epic seriesDecember 10, 2011EmberQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Swords of the Six is a prequel of sorts to the rest of the series and while a fun read, lacks the depth that you will find in the second book, Offspring. This book is slower and has a more fairy-tale feel to it. We only begin to dig into the meat of this series in book 2. But don't let this scare you away. Swords of the Six is still a great story and I enjoyed it. Just make sure you also read Offspring before deciding whether or not you like the series, because this book is not the best example of just how good this author really is.
