Wielding a Red Sword depicts a mere mortal who is called to serve as a god-like incarnation. It is the thrilling story of Mym, an Indian prince who takes up the Red Sword to become Mars, the Incarnation of War. To avoid breaking his betrothal to the princess Rapture and the war that would surely result, Mym accepts the fearsome office. As Mars, he plans to keep Rapture by his side as he stops the suffering caused by Earth's incessant wars.

I still like the series a whole, but this book is stearing away from the series style a bit. The course of War coming to terms with his office, in this book, is tangential series of reused fairy tales. Almost as if Piers was rushing it out for production.

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life. But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow's best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday.

a lot of random tangents semi-relevant to the main plot. really great idea for a book and interesting twists, turns, and revelations! great intermingling of gods! also it leaves me desiring further revelations.

. I'm glad I started this series after it was completed so I could read them all back to back. this is my 4th read of on a pale horse. I always remember excerpts from the later books while reading this. I think for the love of evil will be the next read, just to remember the Lord of flies perspective on this book.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.
