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.

Any additional comments?

The first three books in this series had the "Author's Note" narrated at the end. They provided a very welcome insight into Piers Anthony's life and writing. When listening to the last chapter of the book, I was looking forward to the "Author's Note". I cannot express my disappointment to have this omitted from the Audible production. Yes, I have the paperbacks and can read it, but I just felt I was lacking something at the end of the Audible book.
