In order to regain his throne, young Idris Limpet must travel to the distant and dangerous land of Aegypt to rescue his beloved sister and prove his worth as a King. Check out Kidzworld’s book review of Lyonesse #2: Darksolstice by Sam Llewellyn.


Well Between the Worlds Summary

In Lyonesse: Well Between the Worlds, Idris Limpet was taken from his home and trained to become a monstergroom—a person who captures and tames the monsters that live beneath the wells. In no time, Idris’s life was transformed. One minute he was an ordinary boy. The next he was the rightful King of Lyonesse.


An Act of Courage

But he doesn’t have control of his kingdom. The evil half-monster, half-woman known as Fisheagle is ruling over Lyonesse. Idris plans to conquer her, but he can’t do it alone. The other kings won’t fight by his side until he proves that he is a worthy warrior. To test his bravery, Idris must travel the long and dangerous journey to the feared land of Aegypt. There he must rescue his sister, Morgan, who is being held prisoner.


Knights of the Round Table

The journey is so dangerous that Idris has no chance of making it there alive. Luckily he meets a group of young bandits who pledge their allegiance to him. He doesn’t treat them as servants or subjects like other kings would. Instead Idris treats them like friends.


The Bottom Line

The Lyonesse series twists the tale King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table with young adult fantasy fiction. Sam Llewellyn created a fantastical world filled with freaky creatures, and a strong, courageous main character. We thought Lyonesse: Darksolstice was a great read.
