"The King's Scrolls is well written and I would not be surprised if The Ilyon Chronicles becomes a classic in the tradition of The Chronicles of Narnia. If you or your children enjoyed those tales, then this is a book for you." -- Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

If you dislike complex books that race you through unexpected plot twists and exciting adventures, this book is not for you.
If you dislike The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien, this book is not for you.
If you (for some strange reason) dislike dragons, scrolls, realistic unreality, and dangerous risks of believers determined to follow the one true God, this book is not for you.
However, if you happen to like any (or all) of the above, READ THIS BOOK.
<i>The King’s Scrolls</I> by Jaye L. Knight, sequel to <i>Resistance</I> and second installment in <i>The Ilyon Chronicles</I>, is an incredible tale of bravery, faith, and the ongoing battles between good and evil in another world.
Personally, I was expecting something epic when I got this book, because I’d read the first book and had gotten several spoilers from some friends. I was not prepared for how epic it would actually be. There were dragons. There were scrolls. There were highly realistic characters, all of whom had their own struggles and fights as the story progressed. There were breathtaking moments where I certainly was not expecting the events that appeared. And behind it all, there was a theme of the light versus dark imagery that was clearly illustrated in the people and places described. Overall, it was an amazing tale that carefully balanced the fantasy realm and the truth so that it felt real. Jaye L. Knight is a genius.
Highly recommended for everyone!

I can especially empathize with the older siblings, Marcus and Liam. Though their struggles are different, the theme of duty, love, and devotion plays out well with them.
Again, I was very impressed by the quality of writing. I can tell that the personalities, scenes, and themes were well thought out, and that the proofing and editing of the text were taken seriously. It is refreshing to read from authors like Ms. Knight. I have my finger on the purchase button for book three already!
"Where. . .?"
I am back and I can hardly believe the adventure I've just been on.
"Oh, hello there. Are you waiting to hear my review of The King's Scrolls? Well, I'm sorry I've kept you waiting." *smiles sheepishly* "I was a bit preoccupied with the dragons and things. So, you want to know what I thought of the book and of whether or not it is worth your time and money?" *laughs outright*
"The second part isn't even a question. It's worth all that and more. But keep in mind, this is just my opinion. You'll have to decide that for yourself. The depth of the characters alone makes this book worth the read.
*sighs dreamily* Jace is one of a kind. I've never met (Yes, I said 'met') a character like him. He struggles with so much pain both inside and out, but at the same time he's also one of the strongest characters. Perhaps that's because of all the stuff he's overcome. You can't help but want to give him a hug.
Kyrin is also an amazing asset to the book. She is such a strong female character. A breath of fresh air from most of the other prominent female character's I've read. Her faith never falters even through trials. I really admire her love for others.
That brings me to the next thing: Faith. As those of you who've read Resistance (and if you haven't yet I strongly suggest you do. BEST BOOK EVER.) already know this book, and the entire series is biased on faith. The people living in the land of Ilyon are being persecuted for their faith in Elom, the one true God. The Kings Scrolls in particular shows the characters trusting in Elom (God) through the tough times. 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.' Proverbs 3:5. God has a plan and a purpose for us, and he is working through us even when it doesn't seem like it.
There are many other things I could say about this novel--DRAGONS--but I would rather you found out the rest for yourself.
Oh, but I will tell you two cons: the book was entirely too short and now I have to wait around (patiently) for the next one. :) I'd better go now. Kaden mentioned something about taking me flying. I hate heights, but who could refuse a dragon ride? Better warn Kaden though, I don't think he'll be at all pleased if I end up puking on him.:/ Talk about embarrassing."
I open The Kings Scrolls again and it appears to you as if I have vanished from right beneath your eyes. But I'm only back within the woods of Ilyon, flying.
very attached to certain characters, (which is a major plus in my opinion), and found it hard to put the book down once I got into it.
The message The King's Scrolls portrays is very strong. The story does not skirt difficult emotions such as pain, sorrow, confusion, anger, or even revenge. The author handles her message with care and precision, and this is what I liked most about the book. Nothing is hopeless, even though it may seem so at first, and everything is possible.
Although I found a few aspects of the storyline personally disappointing (I won't give anything away and say what), it still managed to make me a fan of the first two books. I am curious to see what the next four books will bring to this story, I will definitely read this whole series when the rest of the books come out. If this progression keeps up, I can assuredly say I will be a die hard fan by the end of the series.
I recommend anyone who enjoys a good story, great action, as well as a strong Christian message to read this book. It is well worth it!
