Download Ü Sword Song (Sunburst Book) 105 ¾ [PDF] ❤ Sword Song (Sunburst Book) Author – Discovered among Rosemary Sutcliff 's papers after her death in 1992 Sword Song is the swashbuckling epic of a young Viking swordsman banished from his home for unintentionally killing aOme for unintentionally killing a man who takes up a new life as a mercena. I've only just discovered this final novel by one of the greatest historical novelists of our time and I don't just mean children's historical novelists It fits though only marginally into the 'dolphin signet ring' seuence that began with The Eagle of the Ninth fitting into the gap between the end of Sword at Sunset and The Shield Ring It would be worth reading for that reason alone; but it's also a solidly researched story of British Vikings free from sentimentality and moralising and with Sutcliff's usual vivid characterisation especially as regards the warts and all hero Bjarni He's not so obviously appealing as say Marcus or Justin or even Auila but he's a realistic depiction of the complex of loves hates loyalties and ferocities expertise and ignorance intelligence and supersition that you might expect from a ninth century barbarian He's accompanied by Hugin another of Sutcliff's adorable dogs I was in constant fear lest something awful happened to him but don't worry it doesn'tThe author died before completing the final draft of the story and it does show The tale is episodic some of the episodes are a bit disconnected and the ending though neat in that it takes the hero back to his starting point is ragged in terms of story development The heroine Angharad doesn't appear until very late and her story is rather truncated; I'd have liked to hear about her Nonetheless the book is a worthy farewell to a favourite author People who write as well as Sutcliff ought not to be allowed to die

Sword Song Sunburst BookDiscovered among Rosemary Sutcliff 's papers after her death in Sword Song. Rosemary Sutcliff will always be one of my favorites I am seventeen and been reading them for around seven years The first year may have been like listening This story is great I love how her books aren't a series yet some of them are connected This one is connected to The Ninth Eagle and The Silver Branch and The Lantern Bearers Her books are not about the romance though they usually have a girl This one I think is especially sweet in the girl area I started to read these not to long after Chronicles of Narnia I will always love the Chronicles and they have some amazing truths in them that you understand as you grow older but they are directed to a younger adience Don't get me wrong I love the Chronicles but I don't think I'll ever get too 'old' for Sutcliff's 'young adult' books I am a Christian and read few non Chritian books outside of school reading unless I deem them Appropriate I reccomend these books to everyone they are such a good read
