Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8–10—Longing for adventure, 18-year-old Sir Michael declares himself a knight errant (although the book has a medieval-era setting, no one has heard of such a thing in many years and the idea often gets him laughed at). Fisk, 17, is his indebted and unwilling squire. After rescuing Lady Ceciel from her prison tower, they learn that she is not a damsel in distress, but rather an accused murderess. Their attempts to bring her to justice result in her comeuppance and in the teens' tightly forged friendship that will clearly lead to further adventures. The novel is brimming with saved-by-a-hair escapades and fast-paced realistic action, told alternately from each teen's point of view. Their world is filled with "magica," a gift that allows its possessor to perform extraordinary tasks. In fact, while Michael and Fisk's bravery and wits frame their approach to the problems they incur, it is magica that enables them to escape their would-be dire fate. Nevertheless, the underlying messages could not be more real: the importance of truth, the value of friendship, and the need for staying true to oneself. Delivered skillfully, these ideas are sure to leave their mark on readers. Unusual and invented vocabulary is employed throughout. Like Bell's The Goblin Wood(2003) and The Wizard Test (2005, both HarperCollins), this well-created fantasy is a great read with worthwhile moral issues pertinent to its intended audience.—Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, LaSalle Academy, Providence, RI

This book is fun to read for all ages. I noticed it is recommend for someone far younger than me, a grandmother of five, but I greatly enjoyed it and bought copies as gifts for various ages. There is a blend of humor and suspense. The suspense is probably more edge of the seat for the targeted age group, but keeps us older folks turning pages. Alternating between the two characters is a stroke of briallance and adds much to the story, especially since the two characters come from opposite social standings, giving one street smarts and one book smarts as well as opposing perspectives, ethics, and values. It is an excellent example of good intentions and misplaced trust landing someone into a difficult situation, a situation everyone can identify with!

I absolutely loved this book! It was excellent, fabulous, and had me laughing out loud in public. Fisk and Sir Michael are the perfect duo and balance eachother wonderfully. Fisk's humor, reluctance and practical-ness make him a fun character, and Sir Michael's cheer enthusiam, drive, and chivalry make him every bit amusing. The plot was good and thought-out, the characters were entertaining, and the book itself is addictive. I'd reccomend this to anyone, young or old.

Format: Paperback
Set in an alternate medieval-like world where chivalrous knights errant are a thing of the past and magical abilities are genetic, The Last Knight follows the exploits of Michael and Fisk as they set out to correct an innocent but damning mistake. Though knights errant no longer exist, the life of adventure and good-deeds calls to Michael more than his father's idea of continuing on the family estates, and so he dubs himself Sir Michael and sets out to seek the life he desires. On his journeys, Michael stumbles across Fisk, a con artist who misjudged his mark and now faces punishment unless someone is willing to buy off his punishment. Michael agrees to do this if Fisk agrees to serve as his squire until Michael deems Fisk redeemed.

So the stage is set, as Michael and Fisk set out to rescue the Lady Ceciel from imprisonment in a tower. Thinking themselves gallantly coming to the aid of a Lady, it isn't until after Lady Ceciel is long gone that they are informed the reason for her imprisonment. Far from a damsel in distress, Ceciel had been imprisoned pending her trial on the charges of murdering her husband. Facing imprisonment themselves, Michael and Fisk are offered a chance to redeem themselves if they track down Lady Ceciel and bring her to justice. Lady Ceciel is wily, however, and she is determined not to be caught again.

Hilari Bell has created three superb characters in Michael, Fisk, and Lady Ceciel. Michael and Fisk are opposites in most ways, often finding themselves at odds with one another over questions of morality and what constitutes a wise course of action. These debates are highly amusing. Michael is well-described and wears his heart on his sleeve. He is a noble and kind man with an unwavering sense of right and wrong.

This book reminds my why I enjoy reading. I actually read it awhile ago, but seeing it on goodreads reminded me I never gave it a review (and it really deserves one). The story, told in two alternating first person POVs, surrounds the misadventures of Michael and Fisk. The street smart Fisk must endure alongside the idealistic and not-so-street-smart Michael, who proudly declares he's a knight (a profession that hasn't been around for 100 or so years).

Watching these two almost polar opposite characters interact as they first rescue a damsel in distress, and later find out she's not so innocent and must set out to recapture her is just so...fun! This book doesn't treat its YA readers like mindless drones starved for nothing but supernatural romance. The characters' motivations make sense and they aren't 2-D. Fisk's character in particular is very engaging, as he struggles with his instinct for self-preservation and right and wrong. Michael's character fleshes out even more as we go along. The plot moves along at a fast pace, and I never felt bored. All in all, it's a fun and refreshing read and I hope to see even more in this series.

I really enjoyed this story and the banter between the sarcastic side-kick and the chivalrous knight.

You can't go wrong with this story. :) It is fun, well written, good paced, a surprising delight, and a great adventure. It left me wanting to dive straight in to the continuing journey.

I liked the story of friendship, especially since it was a friendship neither of the characters expected to find in each other. I highly recommend it.

The Last Knight is told by two different narrators, Sir Michael and his squire Fisk. I don't know that I've actually read a book where there were two male narrators, so it took me a while to get into the heads of these characters. When I did, I felt like I knew these two characters very well by the end of this book.

Characters aside, this book has a fantastic plot filled with some humorous situations. Sir Michael is a bit naive and is shown as such right off. This makes for some interesting dilemmas when him and Fisk face certain dangers and crimps in their original plans. I felt like this book had some great twists and definitely will be looking into reading the rest of the series.
