Publisher's Summary

In The Sword of the Lady, Rudi Mackenzie's destiny was determined. Now he returns to Montival in the Pacific Northwest, where he will face the legions of the Prophet. To achieve victory, Rudi must assemble a coalition of those who had been his enemies a few months before and forge them into an army that will rescue his homeland. Only then will Rudi be able to come to terms with how the Sword has changed him, as well as the world, and assume his place as Artos, High King of Montival.

Problem with part 2!

Loved the book, loved the narrator, and couldn't wait for this book to come out. But, please beware, in download part 2 there are tons of areas where a phrase repeates more than 12 times, and at the end, most of the last chapter is skipped! I can't figure out why I should have to now go and pay for a paperback JUST to find out what happened in the last chapter! Audible needs to address this issue and re-issue part 2 to faithful Audible/S.M. Stirling listeners!

Artos goes home

There is a definite problem with the recording in Part 2 at the point when the group returns home. There is a need to correct this and offer a replacement recording to purchasers.
I am less and less satisfied with the series as it moves from a gripping story of diverse and well drawn characters coping with a world that has suddenly changed into a ho hum oft told tale of a quest for the magic thingie that will defeat the evil ... so on and so forth, etc.
This particular episode reads as if the author decided he needed to get the main character home ASAP and finally married to his soulmate. Disappointing

The best Emberverse story so far

The best Emberverse story so far, it builds on the world created in previous books while remaining focused on a specific story.
