Forging the Sword is the third in the Farsala Trilogy and I am really enjoying it. It is one of those books that makes me just want to hole up in my room and read all day. Not really an option when you have kids. But today I had one of those wonderful book moments . . .
I was reading an especially gripping part where the good guys were sneaking around trying to destroy some important things and free some slaves right under the noses of the bad guys. I was so into the story at one point that I realized that I was holding my breath and my heart was pounding and my body was tensed up as if I was the character in the novel and was scared of being caught. Now that's a sign of a good book!
