A new national award-winning book, Swords for Hire is a funny, exciting story about the adventures of a young farm boy named Sam Hatcher, who lives in the ancient Kingdom of Parmall. Sam has lived a simple life on the farm with his parents, but all that changes the day he turns sixteen. He meets Rigby Skeet, a wisecracking guard, and the two uncover a plot that has captured the true king in a dungeon, where he is guarded by the very scary "Boneman."
They embark on an exciting search for King Olive, who was betrayed by his evilóand very strangeóbrother. Along the way they encounter evil guards, a magical sorcerer, and a beautiful girl being held captive. The story is somewhat similar in style to William Goldmanís The Princess Bride.
