Any book with a talking sword will only lead to an epic adventure. And this sword has attitude!
When Otto and Eleanor find this special sword in the river, they have no idea what they will be getting into. Though Eleanor has always wanted to adventure and not just stay home and learn to be an apothicaires apprentice, she has big dreams of being a knight and saving people. While Otto on the other hand is very content to stay at home and help at the mill. But being the best friends that they are, they take on the world. This is a funny action adventure that you don’t know where it’s going to take you next.

Odo and Eleanor have unearthed Biter, a famous fighter from earlier times. By finding Biter, Odo instantly becomes a knight -- a role he is exquisitely unsuited for. Eleanor, however, would make a PERFECT knight -- but she's not the one with the sword.
Finding Biter is only the start -- boy, girl, and sword must soon go on a quest to save their kingdom from threats in both human and dragon form, in this new fantasy triumph from Garth Nix and Sean Williams.
