Toby wields a sword as the outlaw Longdirk. The sword can cut down men like so many stalks of corn. But stranger winds are swirling and howling across the lochs, eldritch winds that are ridden by "hobs" and "wisps" and demons. The enemy Sassenach king is also a sorcerer. His demon soul needs a body and his Black Arts can free Europe from the Khan's Golden Horde.

What could Dave Duncan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It's not a bad book as such but not up to the standards I'm used to from Dave Duncan. I listened to all 8 books in the consecutive series "A man of his word" and "A handful of men" basically in a row and loved them. I really like the serie about Nostradamus and await the third book in the serie "Brother Magnus" and remember "The seventh sword" as very good but this I felt I had to force myself through. I figured it might just be slow in building up and I'd get into it but no. I've listened to the two first and might give the third a chance later just because I don't like not having the ending of a story but it's not something I'll read again.
