    Wirikidor What kind of name is Wirikidor An old one, soldier It s from a language so old that the name of the tongue is forgotten and no trace remains of the people who spoke it It means slayer of warriors , and it was part of the spell I put on the thing, so now that s its name The realms of fantasy are practically infested with magical swords of all sorts but I believe there isn t any to rival this Wirikidor in terms of fickleness and general unreliability It brings on the head of i Wirikidor What kind of name is Wirikidor An old one, soldier It s from a language so old that the name of the tongue is forgotten and no trace remains of the people who spoke it It means slayer of warriors , and it was part of the spell I put on the thing, so now that...

    I ve read reviews of Watt Evans work as being pedestrian Meaning that nothing truly spectacular happens Nothing earth shattering or even exciting This is true about this book, definitely.Valder gets an enchanted sword, and he doesn t do anything with it This is kinda refreshing, though it might have been nice for something to happen as a consequence Instead there s a lot of musing on things that might and could happen as a result of this enchanted sword, but we don t get to see any of it I ve read reviews of Watt Evans work as being pedestrian Meaning that nothing truly spectacular happens Nothing earth shattering or even exciting This is true about this book, definitely.Valder gets an enchanted sword, and he doesn t do anything with it This is kinda refreshing, though it might have been nice for something to happen as a consequence Instead there s a lot of musing on things that might and could happen as a result of this enchanted sword, but we don t get to see any of it In fact, there are lots of passages where the narrator presents possibilities, but nothing ever becomes of them and without these long passages of possibility the book would be half as long.Why Because this is a story about an ordinary life, and as we all know very little of great importance happens in ordinary, everyday life There s very little to keep you interested once the Great War ...

    Light, engaging fantasy at it s best In the Misenchanted Sword, Lawrence Watt Evans has created a fun story that s hard to put down Valder is a likable character that I found it easy to identify with and found myself caring about what happens to him next Whether it s figuring out what properties the crazy swamp wizard imbued his sword with or escaping from an adolescent dragon that chases him directly into the middle of an enemy encampment, the fun rarely ceases in this novel.I had read this Light, engaging fantasy at it s best In the Misenchanted Sword, Lawrence Watt Evans has created a fun story that s hard to put down Valder is a likable character that I found it easy to identify with and found myself caring about what happen...

    Lawrence Watt Evans is sitting at his writing desk, staring dreamily into space What if he ponders, excitement brewing as he senses he s onto something, what if I were to write a fantasy novel, except and here he pauses, falters, the idea about to fade away But in the next instant, he s grasped it What if I were to make it NOT shitty He scrambles for a pen, jotting down notes as they flow in a rush, hurriedly, before he loses it all Instead of describing in pain staking detail Lawrence Watt Evans is sitting at his writing desk, staring dreamily into space What if he ponders, excitement brewing as he senses he s onto something, what if I were to write a fantasy novel, except and here he pauses, falters, the idea about to fade away But in the next instant, he s grasped it What if I were to make it NOT shitty He scrambles for a pen, jotting down notes as they flow in a rush, hurriedly, before he loses it all Instead of describing in pain staking detail every last minor encounter, I ll only refer to much of the action after it s happened, not belaboring events that only add hundreds of pages without actually moving the plot along And, if there s going to be magic, well, why don t the people in this magic containing world use it like any resource, in a practical manner, like any other skill or ability of course that would have some interesting effects on how the civilization functions Just because there s magic, doesn t mean that everyone has to stop thinking for the rest of hist...

    I had forgotten how much I really enjoyed this book I m landing this one at 4 and a half stars.Valder, the protagonist, is a character that I find difficult to comprehend at times He strikes me as a man cut from the same cloth as a certain Mr Baggins and is about as successful at avoiding adventure He is portrayed as calm and turns out to be quite the homebody by the time all is said and done.The story coves a great deal of time and ground, but I don t know that I would term this an epic I had forgotten how much I really enjoyed this book I m landing this one at 4 and a half stars.Valder, the protagonist, is a character that I find difficult to comprehend at times He strikes me as a man cut from the same cloth as a certain Mr Baggins and is about as successful at avoiding adventure He is portrayed as calm and turns out to be quite the homebody by the time all is said and done.The story coves a great deal of time and ground, but I don t know that I would term this an epic I think it s an excellent fantasy and still ...

    Popcorn novel Pick it up and read it for entertainment it isn t life changing and certainly not filling and one feels vaguely guilty for having spent time reading it later.The main character is a Gary Stu author self insert and never does anything until events or the plot force him to change He s desperately unhappy about his lot in life and killing people supposedly doesn t stop him from butchering over eighty people with his magic sword but is a morally reprehensible character since Popcorn novel ...
