Patti Nagle has received acclaim for her thrilling fantasy work and she is in top form in The First Sword. Filled with danger and adventure, The First Sword follows famed swordsmith Ghalran as he journeys through the subterranean perils of a mystical mountain in a quest to forge a great weapon, a sword that will help him seek revenge. Exciting and animated, Thomas Stephen gives a wonderful voice performance. Stephen's emotional range is evident as he successfully navigates the rich range of feeling present in Nagle's work.
Fleeing the savages who destroyed his home, an lven bladesmith must forge a new weapon to destroy the enemies standing between him and freedom.
Wounded and grieving the death of his love, Ghalran helps another survivor escape the raiders who destroyed their village. Enemies pursue them into the heart of the mountains, trapping them in a cavern warmed by fire slumbering deep in the earth. Ghalran senses he could make a new weapon here—one that will devastate his enemies—if he has the courage and the magical strength to tame the mountain's fiery heart.
