"I'd like you to find the sword for me. Do you think you could handle that?" Arisa isn't certain how to respond when her mother, the Falcon, formerly a dangerous bandit but now lord commander of the army and navy of Deorthas, entrusts her with this extremely special mission. Everything changed for Arisa when she and her friend Weasel stumbled upon the ancient shield rumored to bestow power upon whoever holds it. With the shield, the Falcon was able to gain her new station, bringing Arisa into a world of royalty Arisa isn't even sure she enjoys. Now the Falcon wants Arisa to get close to young Prince Edoran, and join with Edoran and Weasel to search for the legendary sword that matches the shield. As Arisa's search progresses, however, she realizes she may be in danger from a deadly stranger. Worse, she and her friends may be in even graver danger from someone they know all too well!

The Sword of Waters is the second book in Hilari Bell's Shield, Sword, and Crown trilogy that follows three friends: Weasel, Arisa, and Edoran. Each book in the trilogy focuses on a different character; in this book the story is told from Arisa's point of view. She's a likable and admirable heroine who is very resourceful; she's been given the task of finding the Sword of Waters. I admit i was blindsided by the plot twist in this book! Unfortunately, unlike the Shield of Stars, the Sword of Waters does not stand alone, it has a cliffhanger ending that propels you into the third and final book to find out what happens once and for all.

I loved this trilogy; although there is not much magic in the series, (mostly hints and allusions, and a lot of folklore, mythology and possibility of magic) the development of the characters and the adventure and intrigue they go through in this story definitely satiates my appetite for a good book. YAY! I highly recommend reading the trilogy.
