Dave Duncan has created a wonderful world of honor, action, and betrayal as he opens his first fantasy trilogy with The Gilded Chain. This book is expertly written with a story which will take hold of you and never let you go until you are done. The Gilded Chain is a story which surronds one of the most intriguing characters I have ever read about, Durandel. Durandel is a newly formed blade, an expert swordsman magically forged to serve as a life-long servant to the king, who has taken the his legendary name hopeing to create a second chapter in the Durandel legend. After coming out of Ironhall as one of the best swordsman in the land, Durandel sets out with his new ward to the capital where he will encounter danger, deciet, bloodshed, and his fate. This book is a ten out of ten and any serious fantasy reader should check it out as soon as possible.
