The blue jays and cardinals of Stone-Run Forest have always lived harmoniously side by side. But the fate of the forest--and all its inhabitants--is in jeopardy when the sinister hawk, Turnatt, turns the two bird tribes against each other. According to legend, only Swordbird, Son of the Great Spirit, has the power to conquer evil and restore peace to the land. But is he real or just a myth? Can Swordbird arrive in time to save the forest ... or will it be too late? 13-year old author Nancy Yi Fan has woven a captivating tale about the birds of Stone-Run Forest and the heroism, courage and resourcefulness in their quest for peace.

Pretty cool. But the hero is kind of stupid. I mean Swordbird?! Really? That's his name? Who wants to be called that?!

Not bad but FAR too much like Redwall, so much so that my inner Badger Lord is starting to growl. On the other hand, the other two books in this trilogy are much better, especially the third one, Sword Mountain, which is a good and enjoyable story in its own right.

Unfortunately this wasn't a book that I liked at all. The characters were not developed at all. Predictable plot. I understand it's pretty cool that a 13 year old wrote this, but my copy of the book had a giant picture of her on the back cover, no humility at all. Please understand I'm not being a hater, this book just wasn't one I enjoyed.

I love this book! I'm 11 and turning 12 in November, and I look up to Nancy as an author. I love her books too! The illustrations are great but kind of repetitive, but still nice to look at.
