Greetings and welcome aboard. On this episode of the Orbital Sword, the crew take timeout from their duties to discuss Terry Brooks’ A Knight of the Word, the second in The Word and the Void trilogy of pre-Shannara series. In this story, following a tragedy, John Ross decides that it is time to set aside his mission as a Knight of the Word to attempt to lead a more normal life. Unfortunately for him, not everything is what it seems and it could cost him his life. Nest and others try to warn him that he has chosen the wrong path, but he seems to need to discover that on his own if he is to survive. Join David, Scott, and Jim as they take a close look at this work of dark fantasy.
