Unhappy with his new circumstances, Dragon goes on a quest to seek a powerful sorceress who can restore him to his original state. Along the way, he encounters all manners of dangerous creatures, from zombies to giant spiders, and soon finds himself in for more than he bargained for. The next thing he knows, it's not only his fate that hangs in the balance, but that of the entire realm.
Rapp's irreverent fairy tale is a fun, imaginative read full of adventure and mayhem. With its reluctant anti-hero and twist on familiar fantasy tropes, it reminds me a bit of Shrek (one of my favorite movies when I was a tween). Dragon Knight follows the classic structure of an odyssey or hero's journey, with the protagonist being spurred on a mission and having to face monsters along the way, but gives it a fresh angle. Especially with the way she combines the familiar medieval-style genre conventions with more modern day elements.
As a bonus, this book contains two short stories that take place in a different world – one in which animals are intelligent and pitted against human adversaries.
With its snappy style and wildly imaginative world, Dragon Knight is a quick and entertaining read. I think it'll appeal to anyone up for a different kind of fantasy – adults and younger readers alike.
As with all tales the proof lies in the telling and here our author does not disappoint. As a bonus, treat yourself to the tiger short story in the back. It's really well-crafted as well.
And as if that wasn't enough, the author also included two bonus short stories, including one about my beloved characters from The Alphas.
If you like adventure and humor and a great story packaged in flawless writing style, you'll like this book.
