For the first time in years, life seems settled for Tiger and Del. They run a school for sword-dancers in the South. They're raising a two-year-old daughter. They collect income from their interest in a thriving cantina. Occasionally Tiger must dance against sword-dancers bent on killing him for forsaking the oaths and vows of the circle, but for the most part it's an idyllic life. Until Tiger's twenty-five-year-old son accuses him of being "domesticated."
Thus challenged by his own flesh-and-blood to reclaim his legendary status, Tiger, accompanied by Del and his son, embarks on a journey northwards that will test his sword skill and resolve, and lead him and Del into danger from an old enemy. Though Tiger had forsaken his magic years before, he now faces the choice to reclaim it, and to wield it, in order to save those he loves.
Truly enjoyed this series...love, magic, mayhem. Wicked Tanziers and strong friendships forged. Who could ask for more?
Would you consider the audio edition of Sword-Bound to be better than the print version?
Only had Audible version.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Nice to see Del and Tiger again, but there's no overall plot line, nemesis or end goal for most of the story. Seems more like a series of short stories tied loosely together.
Which scene was your favorite?
The sequence with Umir the Ruthless.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I'm using these as stay-awake-while-commuting books, so this doesn't really apply to me. There were a couple of parts that I sat in my turned off car to finish though.
Any additional comments?
Author has kids going to college soon, maybe?
