Sword of Waters: The Shield, Sword and Crown Trilogy, Book Two

Whoever holds both Shield and Sword has the right to rule the land, so the Falcon sends Arisa and Weasel to find the Sword that matches the Shield of Stars. The young Prince can unite city and countryfolk when he has these long-lost symbols in hand. Of course, the youngsters will need to befriend the spoiled and suspicious Prince Edoran so they can search for clues. Never a dull moment in the capital of Deorthas, even after the coup that deposed the wicked Regent and saved the country.

As they pore through ancient books and puzzle over old maps, Arisa and Weasel begin to believe the Prince’s claims that his father was murdered, rather than merely thrown off a horse accidentally. The closer they get to the Sword, the more dangerous their quest becomes, as Arisa overhears treasonous talk at an inn, attempts on the Prince’s life increase, and a clever stranger stalks Weasel by night.

Which reports about the theft of Shield and Sword have the right information? Can Prince Edoran learn to trust Arisa and Weasel, even become friends? Will the frightening prophecies shown by Arisa’s fortune cards come true?

Continuing the adventures chronicled in The Shield of Stars, this second book in The Shield, Sword, and Crown trilogy shows that winning a battle isn’t the same as winning the fight and that friendship can conquer many obstacles. What will it take to unite the people of Deorthas? Weasel, Arisa, and Edoran go on with the hunt in book 3, The Crown of Earth.363 pages
