The Sword Of Happenstance

(2021)
A novel by

 
 
From two brilliant masters of fantasy, comes a charming tale of a prince who wasn't, a king who shouldn't be, a fairy who was also a hat, and an inappropriate number of witches. In The Sword of Happenstance we meet group of young adventurers who ask questions that change their world. By the end of the journey you will be asking these same questions yourself.

The king is an imposter, ruling a society that is neither fair, nor equitable. There are expectations about who can rule, who can love whom, and who can use magic. When a boy from the country finds a remarkable sword, and a girl from the castle saves his life, they begin a journey that could change everything.

Steven Brust and Skyler White have created something truly unique in this wonderful little book. Suitable for young adults, but sophisticated enough for a mature audience. Filled with puns and wordplay, but with a real heart and an important message. A parable for our world, but never preachy. The Sword of Happenstance is a rollicking good time.

Fans of the Neverending Story will love the narrative style as the participants in the grand adventure tell their grandchildren about their grand adventure and how it changed the world.
