What's up with the Knights of the Silver Dragon series of fantasy adventure novels? Find out with our book review! - Page 1

Ever read the Lord of the Rings? How about seen the movies? If you haven't, then go watch 'em and come back here when you're done. Ok, now you know what a fantasy world is all about - it's full of elves, magic, monsters and a dwarf or two.

Who are the Knights of the Silver Dragon?

The Knights of the Silver Dragon books are a series of fantasy adventure novels set in the world of Greyhawk - a fantasy world in the Dungeons & Dragons game. They're about three kids who live in a town called Curston. There's the apprentice wizard Kellach, his younger brother Driskoll and their sneaky friend Moyra. They hang out together and get into all kinds of adventures. Here's the 411 on each book!

Book 1 - Secret of the Spiritkeeper

Author:


This is where it all starts with a mysterious murder, a magic sphere and ancient ruins! When Kellach's teacher is found nearly dead, the three kids have to find out what happened and save the day. It's an easy read full of adventure, running from horrible monsters, scary moments and lots of bravery. Definitely worth checking out if you're a fan of fantasy stories.


Secret of the Spiritkeeper Rating: 5


Book 2 - Riddle in Stone

Author:


Kellach, Driskoll and Moyra get in trouble again as they investigate sudden disappearances, Moyra's sick dad, and a mysterious stranger in town. This story has a lot of really cool sneaking around, puzzle solving and desperately trying to outsmart dangerous people and creatures. It's a great story of the kids getting in over their head to save the day again. There's even a creature from Greek legend in this story!


Riddle in Stone Rating: 5


Book 3 - Sign of the Shapeshifter

Authors:


Ok, major problemo in this book. There's a bunch of really cool stuff going on in Curston and, when Kellach, Driskoll and Moyra get involved it sounds like an ancient enemy of the Knights of the Silver Dragon is back. Suddenly, the book nosedives when the kids go out and start killing things, including people-ish monsters, on purpose. It's majorly bad mojo, especially since they're 12-14 years old and doubly so 'cuz the authors could have found another way to save the day. Lame. Give this one a miss.


Sign of a Shapeshifter Rating: 2

Then again, women couldn't own and manage land while married until 1718....and it wasn't national until around 1850. You should probably specify where, because the place where I live wasn't even colonized yet in 1718.  Providence of Pennsylvania. However most states didn't accept it until around 1840-50. Maryland had achieved statehood in 1788, but it took them until 1841 to legalize married women to own property, and even them they had no control over the property. This is the case for many states. Face it, early America treated women as property....she was right on that part. But that's all changed. I'm not denying it. I was merely suggesting that you should specify where. Of course, in all the dates you've listed so far, men were also to be bought and sold as property in the U.S. in the states that would become the Confederacy. I would say that their treatment as property was much harsher than that of women in many cases, but yes, of course both men and women have been treated as property by the law in the past, and still are in many places today.    American Slavery didn't discriminate between genders. And for women, it was the same for blacks and whites. Also, pinning slavery and the confederacy together? I thought you knew more about the topic. But that's another debate.

The fight for women's rights has gone on and those for feminist  rights seem to have won. Sure, there is no way to fully promote equal rights, but when it comes to women's place in society -at least in places such as the United States and European countries and in many other regions- it's been on a more leveled playing field with men.  So here? Here where I am? I'm satisfied. I don't believe that women's rights have been neglected. In some ways, they're held above those of men. But out there? Beyond the borders of my "humble" dwelling, there are some problems. Women are abused and seen as lesser. (I'm trying to put this in nicer terms. I don't think it's working... :/)  I think we need to work on fixing those, instead of complaining about how we're deprived as our rights. Because honestly? We have no idea how bad it is.  Sorry,  I went on a mini tangent.  I think your tangent was very good. You seem to have a pretty solid grasp of the situation, and you also are capable of expressing it well. Great post, great job. Agreed. Thanks guys (:
