The jumping sword is one of the main weapons in the Five Kingdoms. Cole and Mira each have one. They were shaped by Durny who worked for the Sky Raiders. They allow the user to say "Away" and magically fly through the air and land somewhat softly. Landings are softer when stringing jumps together. In Book 2: Rogue Knight Cole energizes his in Elloweer even though it is a Sambrian object. This was the first glimpse at his power. The jumping sword bursts into flames and works. It is a very important weapon for the protagonists.
