Vivid imagination STARBURST A vivid tale of sorcery and strife ... an absorbing plot DREAMWATCH

From the Publisher

Set in a world of dark sorcery and strange creatures, where ambition, jealousy and war are rife, Knight’s Dawn begins a magical new fantasy epic. On a hillside above a dark and forbidding forest, a wounded knight awakens, his memory gone. All he knows is that he has been in a mighty battle — but there has not been a battle in this place for more than a century. Tired, hungry, and alone, the knight must rely on the help of others if he is to survive. He is taken to the magnificent city of Zamerkand, but he will soon find that it is governed by corrupt and unscrupulous officials. With his life increasingly in danger, it seems that the only place the knight can find refuge is outside the city. Rather than risk the evils that lurk beyond its walls, he decides to join the ranks of the mercenary army that calls itself the Red Pavilions. But this is only the beginning of an extraordinary quest to avenge an ancient curse and to discover the truth of his past life.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By "mina_chatelaines_keep" on January 7, 2003
Format: Paperback
I'd have to say this book was a complete surprise to me from what I was expecting. Right from the first chapter I was hooked and found it held my interest right to the end. The story was interesting as were the characters. It had a touch of fairytale, macabe, humor, romance great characters and lots of surprises.

Kim Hunter doesn't hold back when it comes to gritty discriptions so be prepared to be grossed out at times. He is not afraid to describe things in it's rawest form.This just adds more believability to the story in my opinion. If you like peaches and cream fantasy then this book is not for you. Otherwise give it a try. I don't think you will be disapointed.

I'm am definitely looking forward to reading the next book "Wizard's Funeral". I'd give this book 4 1/2 stars.

I'm always on the lookout for a good fantasy writer, and I had hoped Hunter was one. No such luck. The plot wanders with little direction from villain to seemingly indestructable villain, each of whom is dispatched in about four pages. The characters create neither sympathy nor revulsion - there is just very little here to care about. There are some inventive (fantasy) ideas, but nothing of interest to hang them on. Don't bother.

Format: Paperback
This book seemed to have great ideas, and I believe the story-line is quite good. The writing style is dry and uninspiring and at times the writer seems to forget previous information about characters and events. Some strange/fanciful events seem to be added for no reason, other than to help the "hero" escape from his latest problem, or as an attempt to enliven a part of the book. Towards the end of the book it gets a bit ridiculous.
Overall - a great story that is badly told.
