Why did Shieldbreaker break against Woundhealer? .

Why did Shieldbreaker break against Woundhealer? Does Woundhealer have some internal regenerative power which counteracted Shieldbreaker's power and caused a feedback reaction? book-of-swords. Out-of-universe, it's clear by the end of the last Lost Book of Swords that Saberhagen is trying to rid his universe of the Swords of Power, to wrap up the story in a convenient way. So he obviously needed to eliminate Shieldbreaker, which is otherwise the ultimate weapon. One of the main theme's of the series was how the use of the Swords as weapons almost always turned out badly (see, for example, Farslayer's Story).

As the last installment of the Book of Swords series, The Last Book of Swords: Sheildbreaker's Story definitely wraps up most, if not all, of the series' questions. Some of the questions include: Who is the Emperor? Who (or what) is Ardneh? What happened to Vilkata? Does Yambu find peace? These and many more.

The story follows Vilkata who was banished along with his demonic cohorts in The Sixth Book of Lost Swords: Mindsword's Story in his quest to seek revenge on the royal family of Tasavalta. Still in possession of the Mindsword, he returns to the palace upon confirming that Mark and Kristin are absent and converts most of the populace into worshipful followers. But, Stephen, the royal couple's youngest son narrowly escapes that fate with the help of Sheildbreaker (which nullifies the effects of the other swords) and Sightblinder (which helps him take advantage of the mindless followers or escape their notice).

Meanwhile, Baron Amintor, a long time foe of Prince Mark and his family, arrives in Sarykam following the direction of Coinspinner, the Sword of Luck, for his own reasons. Prince Mark and Kristin, in a nearby village, hold Woundhealer, and one of the Baron's allies holds Farslayer. The occupied armory holds Stonecutter and Townsaver, and even Soulcutter, the Mindsword's opposite, is located and nearly put into play. With so many swords concentrated in one place, chaos is the only possible result.

Quite a fantastic wrap to a an epic story spanning generations. Wonderful!

If you enjoyed the rest of the series, stop and don't read this book. Yes, you will be left wondering what happens to the rest of the swords, who is the Emperor, what happens to Mark and the rest, but live with the curiosity. This book goes beyond anticlimactic, it is just awful. The ending and the explanation of the Emperor is so...I can't even find words for how disappointing it is.
I'm left wondering if Saberhagen didn't outgrow the series and quickly wrote Shieldbreaker's story to bring the series to a close so he could move on to other endeavors. I can not believe that he actually thought that this ending would satisfy his readers.
I can not stress enough how thoroughly disappointing and frustrating the ending of this book is. Saberhagen should personally apologize to everyone who read this book

I really enjoyed Saberhagen's entire Swords series. Highly recommended.

Although most loose ends of the series of 11 books are tied off. It felt as if the author was in a hurry to just end it all after pulling the reader along through a great series of stories. Questions still remain.

Great way to spend time

A++++
I bought it to complete the rest of my series. If you like quest stories than I recommend this series.
