Few authors have achieved such renown as World Fantasy Life Achievement honoree and Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, Andre Norton. With the love of readers and the praise of critics, Norton's books have sold millions of copies worldwide. The House of Norreys - those merchants of gems for over 300 years - faces its greatest crisis ever - the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. The old Jonkheer lay dying in his bed when he called his grandson to be with him in the last hours of his life, and at this time young Loren van Norreys is entrusted with the future of Norreys. That future lies in the legendary Flower of Orange, a priceless baroque necklace that the Nazi scavengers burn to possess. It is up to Lorens to save the necklace and the House of Norreys. With the first encounter with the Nazi invaders, Lorens faces his challenge as THE SWORD IS DRAWN. “The grande dame of science fiction.” – Life Magazine “A superb storyteller with a narrative pace all her own.” – The New York Times “Andre Norton is a superb storyteller.” – Chicago Tribune “One of the most popular authors of our time.” – Publisher’s Weekly “One of the most distinguished living SF and fantasy writers.” – Booklist “She remains one of the most underrated masters of science fiction and fantasy.” – Minneapolis Star-Tribune
