Summary: When the Gelfling village of Stone-in-the-Wood is at the brink of annihilation from a terrible enemy, the great warrior Ordon is sent on a quest to retrieve the mythical weapon that promises to turn the tide of battle. Now, his quest is underway and Ordon has an ally in Fara, the future leader of the Stonewood clan. Together, they must find the Dual Glaive before their entire way of life is destroyed. But with Ordon poisoned and Fara helpless, is their quest over before it begins?
The quest for the Dual Glaive continues to be an interesting one and Addis, Matthews and Andelfinger do an excellent job of keeping the story moving and growing and expanding both it and the characters. This story has fun with its characters amidst the seriousness of their quest. There is a well done balance in this story that allows for the quest to evolve while also keeping the tension of the upcoming battle intact.
