ARC Book Review Rage of the Dragon King by J. Keller Ford

David and Charlotte paid their dues. They traveled to another realm, battled the Dragon King, recovered the all important magic key to the mage tunnels, and found the heir to the throne of Hirth, as promised. Now it’s time to go home. There’s just one problem: the powerful crystals needed to activate the tunnels have been stolen…and David’s parents have mysteriously disappeared along with them. Guess who’s not going home to Havendale anytime soon.

Eric Hamden, squire extraordinaire, survived the poisonous knick of a shadowmorth’s blade, rescued the king of Hirth from the bowels of the dragon’s lair, and confronted a heartbreaking betrayal that nearly got him killed. Still reeling from the news, Eric sets his sights on a daring rescue only to wind up in a prison of his own with David and Charlotte at his side. But rescues come in strange ways, and before they know it, the three end up in David’s hometown of Havendale…and Eric gets a quick schooling in Modern Life 101. He’d rather fight a dragon.

With secrets, lies and betrayals meeting them at every turn, David, Charlotte and Eric soon discover that Havendale isn’t the sanctuary they’d hoped for. Even their best-laid plans can’t prepare them for the danger that stalks them. This time, no amount of magic or prayers can save them. War has been declared, and in the final battle, someone must make the ultimate sacrifice. Let the battle begin.

Jan’s Review

This is the sequel to the exciting start of The Chronicles of Fallhollow this one lived up the first in that it has an exciting nail biting ending that leaves you with lots of questions of what is going to happen in the series.  Pretty sure we get another book cause you know we got to know how this all plays out.

I really like that this story takes place in two worlds ours as we know it which makes for some comical scenes with the characters who never been here.  Then we have Fallhollow which is filled with dragons, elves and magic.  I really feel like i can see the place.   This is an engaging book that gives you a little bit as you read along and keeps you entertained.
