Book Review - Kid Beowulf: The Rise of El Cid

Kid Beowulf: The Rise of El Cid

About the Book
The third volume in the Kid Beowulf series by Alexis E. Fajardo is an action-adventure swashbuckler with a dash of romance set in medieval Spain. Based on the Spanish national epic, El Cid, Kid Beowulf: The Rise of El Cid picks up shortly after the events of book two. Beowulf and Grendel are in war-torn Spain, where honor is hard-fought, allegiances are dubious, and the bulls run wild. Amidst it all comes a young knight named Rodrigo, who fights for the name he’s lost, the land he loves, and the virtue they’ve both forgotten. It continues the Kid Beowulf narrative and gives Beowulf and Grendel new characters to meet and lessons to learn.

My Take on the Book
This is a series that my daughter has loved so far and in reading this book she had a blast with both the story and the characters. The book was fast paced and a ton of fun. The book has great artwork and a great story. There was drama and humor and you will find that the book moves along and compels you to read more from beginning to end. If you read the first two books, this book will add much to the overall story itself. The book has a great plot and it definitely is a fun book for all ages.
