The power of Gods and ungodly swords...

The First Book of Swords - Fred Saberhagen

It was a simple read ,but it was fun.
We're dealing with gods and swords of ungodly power.
The first 1/4 of the book is like an introduction.

I thought the characters were done really well.
And the world-building was enough without boring detail and repetition.

Apparently a young boy begins a quest with a sword who unknowingly is being played by 
higher forces, and we will follow him through the series.
I liked this book and would recommend it to others who read fantasy.
