Knights of the Silver Dragon Books 1-3 Book Review

Knights of the Silver Dragon Books 1-3 Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 2 Star Rating)

Whats 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

    since i was young since i was small, stupid, clueless. in a daze in a faze that the world was a beautiful kind place. convinced life was a big and precious thing. i was sought after by pigs. no not the animals. although the male species can act like animals. they can be ferocious, sex###########d cold-hearted. They can go after you as if you were prey. hunt you down. and kill you. but instead of taking your life. it's your innocence. your right to feel important in life. they make the word "beautiful", sound so fake the way it slides off their lips and into my mouth convincing me it must be ok if i let my guard down i don't enjoy being talked to because you like the way i look i like the way that butterfly looks but i'm not going to catch it and rip it's wings off. you like my face you like my body but you don't like ME enough to stay and treat me like i'm worth something. exscuse me. while i walk away from your filthy hands. but don't touch me. one more crack in my porceline skin. and i'm done. go break someone elses body.

    When I try to come up with ideas, I tend to take a cliche and change elements about it so that it takes on a sort of originality. So, for example, let's say we're taking the cliche of a band of friends (or strangers) hunting a dragon. Instead of their motive being that the dragon is, say, eating innocent villagers or holding a princess captive, that it's a more personal issue. Maybe the dragon is a smaller type with a more mischievous demeanor, and is stealing the characters' valuables as a prank, and the characters want their things back. They might be innocent villagers themselves, unskilled with any sort of tracking or fighting techniques, and hire a sort of mercenary to help them out. But if you wanted a plotless sort of thing with a lot of flexibility, you could have the characters be a band of mercenaries who get hired by people to do various jobs. And if you can find more things to swap out in any idea you come up with, you'll eventually find yourself being in a sort of popcorn machine of ideas. Hopefully, this post has been helpful.
