Publisher's Summary

Those who read and enjoyed the original three-volume series, The Seventh Sword, will remember that the original trilogy presents a series of surprising endings, especially in the third volume. In order to avoid spoilers, the author has chosen to skirt some issues central to those volumes in the description for this new, original and additional volume which follows the original series publications by well over a decade. New readers may wish to start with The Reluctant Swordsman, The Seventh Sword 1; The Coming of Wisdom, The Seventh Sword 2 and The Destiny of the Sword, The Seventh Sword 3, before starting on this brand-new adventure set in the world of The Seventh Sword.
The Reluctant General
For 15 years the truce has held. Swordsmen of the Tryst of Casr have kept the peace and extended the rule of law over half the World, but now sorcerers have started killing swordsmen again, and swordsmen traitors are aiding them. Shonsu-who was Wallie Smith before he became a swordsman of the seventh rank and liege lord of the Tryst-must once more gird on the seventh sword of Chioxin, and this time he rides out to fight the war that he hoped would never come. As he leads his army forth, its two most junior members are Vixini, son of Shonsu, and Addis, son of Nnanji, who has an oath of vengeance to fulfill. Their failure or success will determine the fate of the World for the next thousand years.

Good series ends here

I enjoyed this entire series for light reading on a mythical planet, told in 3rd person. This book is set about 15 years after book 3. The characters make the series. Recurring characters include Nnanji, his wife Thana, their son Addis, his brother Katanji, and Shonsu/ Wallie Smith, his wife Jja, their son Vixi (a baby in books 1-3), plus a few minor secondary characters.

Good read, but the ending left me disappointed somewhat, in that certain conspirators to mass murderer weren't punished, or not nearly enough.

New narrator. Bevine is good, but he didn't pronounce Nnanji and Jja correctly. The author's note (in previous book) explained that it's Na-nanji, and Ja-ja, as the prior narrator correctly pronounced.

good story, horrible narrator

all I can say is this narrator was horrible. he didn't pronounce any of the names correctly and that just annoyed me throughout the whole book. As for the story it was great to get to see the future of Wally, Nnanji and Jja. And the continuation of their story. but I'd buy this book again if they got a new narrator, so I can listen without yelling out the correct names each time. grrrrr
