Although there hasn¿t been a knight errant in over two hundred years, eighteen-year-old Sir Michael is determined to revive the trade. Along with his reluctant squire Fisk, Sir Michael seeks wrongs to right and damsels to save. When sought out to rescue a lady trapped in a tower it seems that Fate is shining on Sir Michael¿s quest. Unfortunately after rescuing the damsel they discover that the lady in question is a suspected murderess and was awaiting trial. Now they must find the damsel and bring her to justice, or face permanent dishonor. Highly entertaining. Bell pens a wonderful novel full of adventures and mishaps. The reader receives the story from alternating views of Sir Michael and Fisk which provides for humorous analysis of various situations. I would definitely recommend this book for those who love a good, funny read.

Two character points of view between Sir Michael, a knight errant, and his squire, Fisk, who is also a con man. We get just enough of each character to know that there is more to both their stories. I had problems keeping the narrators straight and had to backtrack occasionally to check, which was frustrating but helped show how the two characters are rubbing off on each other. The world itself is doled out in tantalizing pieces - as with the characters, we get just enough to know that there's more to the story. The plot itself is simple but it made me ask 'why' a lot and I expect the following books in the series to answer those questions.

This book is fast-paced and adventurous with characters who have great growth throughout the novel. It's filled with many mishaps for Sir Michael and Fisk, but their budding friendship makes the journey fun and enjoyable.

The Evolutionary increases the energy. Molly begins to scream. Karolina, distracted by the scream fails to notice the table being hurled at her. She flies backwards, crashing into Victor. A blast hits Nikko, sending her flying into a wall. She flumps down, and looks at her arm, which is riddled with cuts and bruises. She looks up and sees Molly screaming. She looks back at her arm. "When blood is shed..." She incites. "No. The Staff was broken." The Main Evolutionary says, but he sounds a little scared. Nikko's blood begins to glow. The other Evolutionaries charge her. "Let the Staff of One emerge." A flash of light explodes from her, blasting away the Evolutionaries. When it clears, she is standing there, holding the Staff. She points it at Molly. "Clear Sight." Molly blinks, and sees the Evolutionary. Her eyes turn purple, and she punches him clear through his force field. "No. I will not be--" The Evolutionary starts, then sees the Runaways standing there, facing him, their various weapons pointed at him. "Very well. I shall relent. But you have not seen the last of us." The Evolutionaries disappear, and the Runaways all look at each other, exausted.

Two centuries have past since the vocation of heroic knight errant became extinct. Yet the younger son of an aristocrat, Sir Michael Sevenson decides that he will revise the noble profession doing daring good deeds. Of course like the knights of yore, Michael needs a loyal squire so he goes to the only place he might find such a person the jail. Con artist Fisk is given the choice of spending a long time as the guest of the kingdom or becoming Michael's squire. Although having a square meal and a cot sound appetizing, Fisk reluctantly agrees to assist Michael on his adventures to right the wrong and protect the innocent. The daring duo succeed on their first caper freeing Lady Ceciel from incarceration in a tower. As they celebrate their success, they learn she was allowed to remain in comfort rather than a dungeon while standing trial for murdering her husband they are informed by authorities to right their wrong by returning the Poisoner to them or replace her. --- This tongue in cheek medieval saga rotates perspective between the knight and his squire so that the audience sees the same event from two totally opposite viewpoints (a delight for historiographers as to what a fact is and what is tainted by bias). Whereas Michael believes the glass is half filled Fisk would slice off the top empty part and claim the glass is filled. Targeting middle school children, adults will appreciate the amusing adventures of THE LAST KNIGHT. --- Harriet Klausner
