Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this book with caution. It is the continuation of book one and it must be read in order to go on to book three, however, it was slow and I had to make an extra effort to stay interested.
If you’ve listened to books by Fred Saberhagen before, how does this one compare?
I have not listened to other books by him except for book one in this series and this one pales by comparison
What about Derek Perkins’s performance did you like?
Great voice overs for each character. Rise and fall of tone to make for interest. Some of the characters could have used a little more powerful voice based on their descriptions but overall I still think he was excellent
Do you think The Second Book of Swords needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Sure it needs a follow-up because the story is not over. There hasn't been a resolve to the whole scheme of things yet. I just hope the last book holds more interest.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Second Book of Swords to be better than the print version?
I only read as an audio book, Although i think the simple style lends itself well to that format.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The villains were my favorite part of this story.
Which character – as performed by Derek Perkins – was your favorite?
Again all the voice acting was quite well done. Subtle but unique differences between characters.
Any additional comments?
I thought this book much like the first was a great story. Modern fantasy has a tendancy to get very complex with hundreds of strange names and places. I found the story to be more like the myths of Greek mythology. I was a bit disappointed in the ending of this one. It fleshed along this great story for the characters then felt like Saberhagen ran out of room and had to quickly tie everything up in 3 chapters. The ending felt very rushed and left me wanting.
