The story starts off with Darinel, a prince who is in line for the throne but doesn't agree with the harsh ruling policies of his father. Refusing to take the throne and become a cruel king like his father, Darinel sets out to find a new home, surrendering his kingdom to his younger brother and risking banishment for life.
This story has its roots in the classic medieval style dragon-slayer tale--Darinel finds a kingdom he'd love to make his home, and a princess he can marry to gain a foothold in the ruling class of that kingdom. But he has to slay a dragon to gain her hand in marriage. Much better than those stories where the dragon is a heartless evil creature that you want to watch die, this dragon is a misunderstood storyteller that I fell in love with from the first chapter where it was introduced.
A great read, I give this book five stars.
I thought this was incredibly sweet story about the power of friendship no matter the cost. I thought Darinel choosing to leave was a very brave act on his part inspite of his father's demands. I applaud his courage to stick to his plan and accept the consequences as well. The dragon's part in the story was so skillfully woven together that left little doubt to it's importance. The Princess is a very good role model. She's unafraid and willing to stand up for what she believes in. Each of the characters were interesting, thoughtful, generous, and kind at times. I will definitely continue reading more of this author's work.
Knowing he will be banished...the throne handed to his younger brother, Darinel turns his back on his birth-rite and his father's commands that he "shape-up"...Darinel sets off to find a kingdom run by a kinder, more benevolent monarch.
It is not an easy journey. There are places so filled with mistrust, he barely makes it out alive. It's a big world so it takes him such a long time when he sees the huge shadow flying over him, just outside the kingdom he knows he's been looking for.
HOWEVER, he will learn that shadow is a dragon in need of slaying, according to the benevolent monarch he's found...oh and if he wants to wed the beautiful princess he holds in great esteem, the head of the dragon is the price.
I'm not going to do a spoiler and tell you what happens, but the story will grab you, and have you cheering for our hero and our heroin. I WILL say, Hans Christian Andersen has NOTHING on Antje Hergt.
DARINEL DRAGONHUNTER is a captivating story written for the young, but also for those like me...not young, chronologically, but young where it counts, inside my heart.
FIVE GLITTERING STARS I give this heartwarming story of magic, compassion, and honor.
Thank you Antje Hergt. I look forward to your next story.
