Sword of Stone
by David Gearing
Every fifty years, the Sword of Stone, the god and protector of the Vamori Village, must be sent out on a quest to be fed so that it may fall back asleep. Legend states that the eldest male child of the chief must perform this ritual.
But when the Vamori Chieftain has no sons, his only daughter steals the sword to protect her village, discovering its true nature and the truth about the gods.
