Publisher's Summary

The gods forged the Twelve Swords of Power; now the gods have been destroyed by their own handiwork. The Swords are loose in the world, falling into the hands of human beings, changing human lives for good and ill.
Young Kasimir was the custodian of Stonecutter, the sword which can hew mountains and split diamonds with equal ease - until he discovers Stonecutter has been stolen. His first ally in the search to recover the powerful blade is Magistrate Wen Chang, who is reputed to have mysterious mind-reading powers.
Was Stonecutter responsible for the three murders they discover evidence of along the way? Or for the mysterious missing man?
And will Kasimir be able to recover Stonecutter before it does irrevocable damage?

Not as good as it used to be.

What did you like best about Stonecutter's Story? What did you like least?

I read the entire series as a teenager and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread, but since then I have read a few hundred other books, and this series no longer holds up.


Would you be willing to try another book from Fred Saberhagen? Why or why not?

Probably not, I may try some of his more recent works though.


Did Cynthia Barrett do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Decently well yes, not the best storyteller, but not terrible either.


Did Stonecutter's Story inspire you to do anything?

Read something a little better.

- Justin "Mainly a fantasy reader, but switching more to Historical Fiction and History in general."

This is more along the lines of Sherlock Holmes..

Would you try another book from Fred Saberhagen and/or Cynthia Barrett?

I remember reading the first 3 books 20 + years ago... They didn't age well.


Would you be willing to try another book from Fred Saberhagen? Why or why not?

I will probably listen to some of the other books in this series, but not in any hurry to do so.
