Victoria Hanley is an angel sent from heaven to deliver awe-inspiring novels to us. I read this book in the 8th grade and have never forgotten it. I looked in every bookstore and library for it and was unsuccessful. At the end of the story the sword is returned to Landen and he wears it in his belt and that is all that happens with the sword. You almost are expecting a sequel just so you can see the sword being used in action. On a more positive note, I did like the story, the characters, and the author had some nice descriptions.

The difference between JK Rowling and Victoria Hanley is that Rowling manages to see past the stereotypes and show us the human characters in their own right. In Hanley's work, I never get to see the characters or the plot elements as anything other than elements. If you've never read any fantasy before. This is Hanley's first novel, and she's written at least one more in the same world; The Seer and the Sword was promising enough that I'll seek out the second book in the hopes of a little more worldbuilding and the same good characterization.

He looked forward to the meeting, as he would fine entertainment. Bellanes was everything he had hoped: ingenious, unpredictable, effective. Ardesen studied him as he bowed and took a chair opposite the king. The restive, exotic face with its peculiar ice-fire eyes, greeted him with a brief smile. You sent for me, si. The king handed a scroll to his guest. Bellanes’ eyes darted across it. Ardesen saw a tensing of shoulders; movement as if the young man wanted to crumple it in his fist.

Flame-haired Princess Torina knows nothing of battles and conquest until her father, the king of Bellandra, returns home with an orphaned prince from the neighbouring enemy kingdom. The boy prince is offered to Torina as a slave, but she frees him from his bonds and their unusual friendship develops in the years that follow. Now I've read it so many times I don't even know where to begin or what.

I usually do not like teen fiction because the writing style is more basic and less eloquent than I prefer, but Victoria Hanley takes quality fiction to the next level for the genre. The plot is intricate and kept me wanting to know what happened next with every page.

Victoria Hanley does an impressive job of showing readers the tactics and political maneuvers of warfare and diplomacy, but doesn't bog this book down in extraneous detail or explanation. The characters are strong and capable, with interesting reflections on male/female roles in the struggle. Hanley gives power to both roles-and creates characters that act outside the roles they were given.

Legend states that there exists a mighty sword that makes its possessor invincible to his enemies. But there is a curse on anyone who lifts the sword for conquest. King Kareed of Archeld goes after this sword anyway, winning it from the King of Bellandra. When he returns home from battle, he brings his daughter, Princess Torina, two special gifts. One is a unique crystal, in which she can view visions of the future. The other gift is the defeated king’s son Landen, who is to be her slave. Torina immediately releases Landen, who becomes a member of the King’s army and her close friend.But trouble is lurking in the kingdom of Archeld and people are accusing Landen of plotting against the King. Torina refuses to believe he would hurt her family. Then Torina begins seeing deadly visions in her crystal. Can she save her father’s life and the future of her kingdom?
