    To End A War

    To End A WarNearly a thousand years ago a great warrior named Lachlan sought to unify his people, using the power of the Three Swords of Destiny. Before his victory, Lachlan was killed by his trusted friend, Allarun. Now, Allarun is still in power but haunted by dreams of Lachlan's death curse: that Lachlan would return to avenge his death. Allarun's decision is to destroy the very people Lachlan tried to unite. Only two men have the power to stop the slaughter. Romarin, the last of a line of kings, and a half-blood mercenary named Shadowhelm. One may be destined to be Lachlan, but can they unlock the secret to Lachlan's power before Allarun kills them? "Prophecy Of Swords is a remarkably rich fantasy that takes you into new realms of wonder and imagination. The battles and magic portrayed here full of excitement and intrigue. It's hard to find a good fantasy that isn't a rehash of all that has been done before, but Margaret H. Bonham has managed to break the mold and give readers something totally unique and different. A guaranteed winner." -- Laura J. Underwood, author of Ard Magister, Chronicles Of The Last War, and forthcoming Dragon's Tongue and Wandering Lark "In Prophecy Of Swords, Bonham has written an enjoyable and intriguing novel, filled with believable characters and a rich, satisfying plot. I look forward to the next book in the series with great anticipation." -- Karen E. Taylor, author of The Vampire Legacy series. -- brought to you by Podiobooks.com
