Book Review - Have Sword, Will Travel: Let Sleeping Dragons Lie

Have Sword, Will Travel: Let Sleeping Dragons Lie

About the Book

Odo and Eleanor are excited to be knights. Only . . . nobody's asking them to go on a quest. So they're stuck at home, using their trusty and talkative swords to defend their village when there's cause for defense. But mostly it's just . . . waiting for something bigger to come along.

That "something bigger" comes to them in the form of an old man named Edga, a warrior named Hundred, and an ancient chant: Dragon, dragon,
heed our call . . .
Come to aid us,
one and all.

Odo, Eleanor, and their swords, Biter and Runnel, are plunged into a quest that will take them (as all good quests must) to unfamiliar lands, where they will fight unseen enemies and unlock unbelievable secrets in order to prevent an unbearable impostor from taking the crown.

Also, they will need to keep an eye out for dragons.

As they did with Have Sword, Will Travel, fantasy masters Garth Nix and Sean Williams have crafted a tale full of fire, laughs, and twists for adventurous readers of all ages.

My Take on the Book
This is a book that really brings in a bit of everything. From laughs to fantasy, adventure to mystery and yes, even some Dragons. The book was as much fun as the first book that I read. My daughter and I enjoyed reading this together and there were definitely many places throughout the book where we laughed out loud. We also loved the continuing and new characters as well as the dynamics between them! All-in-all, if you loved the first book, you will also love this book as well! If you did not read the first book, you could read this, but you might want to read book one to gain a good understanding to the world, the characters and more.
