REVIEW: THE BROKEN SWORD by Poul Anderson
REVIEW: THE BROKEN SWORD by Poul Anderson This award-winning author has been acclaimed both for his imaginative science fiction and fantasy. This novel is epic fantasy in the Norse tradition, the tale of a power-hungry Northman whose fatal decision results in the abduction of his firstborn son, replaced by a changeling. The lifelong battles between natural son and changeling are reminiscent of the rivalry between Isaac and his half-sibling Ishmael.
