New York Times bestselling author
From New York Times bestselling authors Garth Nix and Sean Williams, comes this hilarious, action-packed adventure featuring a very unlikely knight, an admirably stubborn girl and a sword with attitude.
When Odo and Eleanor stumble upon an ancient sword in a river outside their village, something very unexpected happens ... the sword starts to talk! Much to Odo's dismay he discovers that he's awoken a famous enchanted blade called Biter, and thus has instantly become a knight. Eleanor would love to become a knight – but she's not the one with the sword.
Unearthing Biter is only the start of their troubles; soon boy, girl and sword must depart on a noble quest to save their kingdom from threats – in both human and dragon form.
'... a fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek adventure featuring memorable heroes, an entertaining premise, and not one but two magical swords with way too much personality...[an] enjoyable spin on the age-old hero's journey, filled with action and humour.' Publishers Weekly
'En garde for an implied sequel that is already too bloody far away.' Kirkus Reviews
