Summary

Prince Mark of Tasavalta embarks on a perilous journey to find the Sword Woundhealer to cure his son of a terminal disease...but an evil wizard has other plans.

From Publishers Weekly

Returning to the milieu of his Swords trilogy, Saberhagen offers a new scenario. The gods have withdrawn from the human world and the 12 Swords of Power they had forged are now scattered, lost and hidden. The weapons are still coveted, though, by men like Baron Amintor, who has lost one kingdom and now sees them as the means to another. No scruples stop him from stealing the sword Woundhealer from the White Temple, where its powers were offered to cure all pilgrims. His bad luck, however, is to have crossed Prince Mark, who is desperate for Woundhealer's help in treating his blind, troubled son. The running battle between Mark and Amintor, their allies, their wizards and their swords, is spun out in a light, pleasant adventure that benefits greatly from Saberhagen's narrative gifts as the various strands leapfrog forward, keeping the reader off balance but constantly intrigued.

Swords of Power, treacherous dealings, a search for healing, a menacing giant worm, a mermaid, an infatuated young boy, a desperate father, an extraordinary young child, a way of wonder and magic —

Once the gods forged twelve Swords of Power, but they forged too well: The Swords could kill the gods themselves.
Now, the gods gone, the Swords scattered across the land and Mark, Prince Consort of Tasavalta, must find Woundhealer, the Sword of Healing, to help his young son Adrian.
But the evil wizard Burslam has joined with Mark’s enemy, Baron Amintor, stealing Woundhealer and luring Mark’s nephew Zoltan away — only to have Zoltan begin his own dangerous quest.
