Years ago I read a book about a young hero who gets a magic sword out of some ice on the side of a mountain. and I think the evil bad guy was supposed to get the sword for himself, but this young boy/man gets it first....
Does that strike anyone as familiar? I can't remember much else other than some flying creatures....
Wish I could remember more.
Thanks!

Legend of Zelda?

Seriously though....

Sounds perhaps like the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn series.
I think Simon, with the help of Binabik, got one of the swords from some ice in The Dragonbone Chair.

It's been years since I've read it though.

Then again, it kind of sounds like every fantasy novel ever written...

That is definitely the Dragonbone Chair, the first in Memory, Sorrow and Thorn.

Man, is that series good.
