    In the 17th century, in an alternate universe, much of Europe, Asia, and the New World are part of an Empire ruled from England. The Order of Crown, Shield, and Dragon is a legion of special agents for the Crown: special emissaries in time of peace, and invincible warriors in more violent times. They carry special weapons: swords, each of which contains the soul of someone of great power. Even in the hands of a knight of the Order, even wielded in the cause of righteousness, a red sword is terribly dangerous to its owner and all around him.

    Cliff says: "Ok quick read, but nothing to write home about."
    Ok quick read, but nothing to write home about.

    The alternate timeline is interesting as is the idea of the swords.

    In the 17th century, in an alternate universe, Mordred defeated King Arthur - known as "Arthur the Tyrant" - and founded an Empire now ruling much of Europe, Asia, and the New World and ably defended by the Order of Crown, Shield, and Dragon. These special agents carry swords, each containing the soul of someone of great power. Even in the hands of a knight of the Order, and wielded in the cause of righteousness, such a sword is terribly dangerous to its owner and all around him: A single red sword can defeat an ordinary army.

    The first book in the series is better but this is a solid read. It isn't going to be anything impressive but a good solid book, the literary equivale..Show More »
