Legend of the Sword by Michael R. Hicks is Book 2 of the Last War Trilogy and Book 5 of the In Her Name series. I bought this book because I enjoyed the series. Unfortunately, I did not find this book on par with the others. The first five chapters (22%) are mostly backfill—often a necessity in a series, but not to this extent.

The story, once it started, was quick-paced and action-filled, though I found some of the solutions to problems just too convenient and improbable.

The epilogue felt as if Mr. Hicks was just trying to tie up loose ends with everyone living happily thereafter, except for perhaps Tesh-Dar, the Kreelan high priestess and warrior. What will happen to her?

If you have never read this author’s work, you might enjoy this book. If you are a fan of Mr. Hicks, you might want to skip this one. I hope he has not gotten bored with writing the series.
