Synopses & Reviews
Stephen Lawhead's best-selling trilogy is being relaunched for a new generation of young adult readers.
An orphan boy puts his life in the hands of the God Most High and overcomes the evil threatening to destroy his world.
In book 1, Quentin is thrown into turmoil and must choose a life of ease, or a dangerous unknown path.
In book 2, Quentin, now King, holds life and death in his hands as the rising Wolf Star has cast a long shadow of terror over the realm of the Dragon King.
In book 3, Quentin reigns as the Dragon King and faces the insidious attack of evil from within himself when Nimrood holds his son hostage.
A kingdom hangs in the balance...and a young boy answers the call.
Carrying a sealed message from the war-hero Dragon King to the queen, Quentin and his outlaw companion, Theido, plunge headlong into a fantastic odyssey and mystic quest. Danger lurks everywhere in the brutal terrain, and particularly in the threats from merciless creatures, both human and not-so-human.
While at the castle, the wicked Prince Jaspin schemes to secure the crown for himself, and an evil sorcerer concocts his own monstrous plan. A plan that Quentin and Theido could never imagine.
In the youth's valiant efforts to save the kingdom and fulfill his unique destiny, he will cross strange and wondrous lands; encounter brave knights, beautiful maidens, and a mysterious hermit; and battle a giant, deadly serpent.
In this first book of the Dragon King Trilogy, Stephen R. Lawhead has deftly woven a timeless epic of war, adventure, fantasy, and political intrigue.
