    For a game, the gods have given the world 12 Swords of Power so that they might be amused as the nations battle for their possession.

What started out as Divine Jest has become all too serious as the gods fight to recover the Swords, and mortals discover that the mantle of power is more delicious and more terrible than anything they could have imagined.

    Returning to the milieu of his Swords trilogy, Saberhagen offers a new scenario. The gods have withdrawn from the human world and the 12 Swords of Power they had forged are now scattered, lost and hidden.

No scruples stop him from stealing the sword Woundhealer from the White Temple, where its powers were offered to cure all pilgrims.
