    Everything high-quest fantasy should be

    More than 200 years has passed since the area around Pretor's Hill was the scene of a horrific battle - on one side the Sorcerer-King Novaris and his army of humans, trolls, morags, dragons and other nasty creatures; on the other side the Sorcerer Paulo Centuros with the humans of three realms, elves and other fighting to stop the spread of darkness. Among those involved in the war is the knight Evan Wytherling. He is cursed to wander the land until he can find Novaris - and confirm him dead, or kill Novaris himself.

    This is a well-written quest fantasy novel, with a lot of great characters. Each character is carefully created to be unique, and the area around Pretor Hill is described in many scenes. I really enjoyed the novel, which moved at a comfortable pace that allowed both plot and character development, yet kept things moving along nicely.

    I did note a couple plot holes - Evan lost his dagger at one point, but then when he and Mardi neared town, he suddenly had it again to give to her. Also, they met Steppenwald, and his bloodline is revealed, yet later Evan mentioned it like it was something he had just put together then and Mardi, who had heard it all the first time, acted like she'd had no idea.

    However, the novel is written in such a way that I doubt many people would have picked up on this, and while it gave me a couple of "wait a minutes," it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story. I did notice one sort of funny thing - other than Lord Steppenwald, the king's representative, who calls his horse Ghost, no one else seemed to have named their horses. I didn't really think of it until I was almost finished with the book, but then it seemed kind of strange.

    At any rate, folks who enjoy quest fantasy, swords and sorcery, demons and dragons, should love this book. Also watch for "Wake of the Wyrm," which is the sequel to "Dragon Mound."

    There are countless well developed characters found within Drago

    There are countless well developed characters found within Dragon Mound. Evan and Mardi are the main focus, though the story mostly follows Evan. He has lived for over 200 years as he embarks on his quest to find the evil sorcerer-King. This evil being was once the very man that Evan pledged his life to fight for, but an unforeseen turn of events quickly branded him as a traitor.

    Now fighting for the opposing side, Evan must lead his life with only one task in mind, and heart. He must put an end to the King even if it means losing his own life. However, he finds an ally in an unusual person, the Lady Mardi, who despite appearances isn’t what she seems.

    Will Evan find the answers he is seeking? Does Mardi forgive his traitorous past? Will the duo come to the aid of mankind, or do they falter in the shadows of evil? You’ll have to read it to find out!

    Knights, fair maidens, magic, curses, and brute strength encompass this action packed novel by one of my all time favorite authors, Richard Knaak. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of reading his Warcraft books, then this novel will not disappoint one bit! And if you haven’t picked up one of his amazing fantasies, now is a great time to start. This has quickly become one of my favorite genres of literature, and Knaak is to blame for my deep love of fantasy.

    I enjoyed every single morsel of this epic tale which left me continuously turning the page to know what would happen next! The plot was thick with magic, action, and even a teensy hint of something unspoken. There were talks of creatures such as elves, ghosts, and dragons, oh my! This wonderful fantasy world pulled me in, and quickly gave me the illusion of being right beside Evan and Mardi.

    I understand that my deep love for the author may make my opinion a bit biased, but trust me when I say Dragon Mound went up and beyond my expectations. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this trilogy as well as Knaak’s other novels.
