DragonKnight--a Fantastic Book!
Reviewed in the United States on January 26, 2008
DragonKnight is a fantastic fantasy book! It follows two other novels, DragonSpell and DragonQuest, and it is a good addition to the series. I felt that the first six chapters or so dragged a little bit, but it soon picked up the pace and became very interesting. While the first two books were told from Kale's view, this book focuses on Squire Bardon and his adventures. This Christian allegory novel has action, adventure, battles, and a little smidgen of romance.
Squire Bardon is on his way to a sabbatical and hopefully a year of peace and quiet to search himself and decide whether he will continue on to be a knight to serve Paladin and Wulder, or not. But it isn't long after he alights from his dragon, Greer, that he faces an opposition to his anticipated sabbatical. Three women, N'Rae and Granny Kye of the emerlindian race, and Jue Seeno, a creature called a minnekin, petition him to lead their quest to awaken spellbound knights. One of these sleeping knights is N'Rae's father. Bardon agrees, but this quest takes him farther than he could imagine. He travels through the land of Amara, where he and people of six other high races live. He travels on the sea and into the Northern Reach. He battles quiss, grawligs, and other creatures. Bardon meets old friends and makes new ones as he picks up more and more members in his quest.
A struggle between good and evil, light and darkness, right choices and wrong choices steer the action in this book. I recommend this book to people who like fantasy books, who like action and fights, who like dragons, and basically anyone else in the world! (Although I think it would be good to read the first two books first)
