The first post-medieval-era story in the Foreworld collection is set in Spain during the 1520s. Swordsmen Basilio and Alejo are on a quest to recover their teacher's ancient fighting manual and have it translated. This novella is full of action and the brutality of the Spanish Inquisition. Narrator Nick Podehl has a flair that makes the characters and their interactions vivid and believable. He builds suspense as the two swordsman face a series of challenges and opponents. He's also adept during the moments that are charged with the evil of the Inquisition. Podehl's nuanced delivery makes this more than a swashbuckling saga.
