Overview

Rowen Locke has achieved his dream of becoming a Knight of the Crane, and he now bears Knightswrath, the legendary sword of Fâyu Jinn. But the land remains torn, and though Rowen suffers doubts, he would see it healed. His knightly order is not what it seems, though, and allies remain thin. When Rowen and his friends seek an alliance with the forest-dwelling Sylvs, a tangle of events results in a midnight duel that teaches Rowen a dangerous lesson and leaves him with a new companion of uncertain loyalties.

The sadistic Dhargots still threaten the kingdoms, but another menace lurks in the shadows, playing a game none can see. As Rowen struggles to prove his worth--to his allies and to himself--chaos raises its hand to strike. A price must be paid, and not even the wielder of Knightswrath will remain untouched.

The Dragonkin Trilogy 2: Knightswrath If I thought I was impressed with Wytchfire, I was surely wrong. Nothing (not even my imagination anticipating this book) could have prepared me for what I read ... or how much I was going to love it. Rowen Locke is a pretty amazing character. When I originally "met" him in the first book, he captured my heart, even though, based on Meyerhofer's description, he was really nothing to look at, had nothing to his name, and was not looking forward to his future. But, as the story went on, we found out just how much of a hero he truly was. By the time I finished Wytchfire, Rowen was my favorite character and I couldn't wait to read more about him. By the time I finished Knightswrath, I had come to the conclusion that Rowen may just be one of my favorite characters of all time. There's just something about him. He always manages to go beyond what you expect of him. This book was amazing, and if I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. I can't wait to see where this story goes and how the trilogy is concluded. Hurry up, Mr. Meyerhofer. I NEED book number three. :) Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Please remember that this review is my opinion based on my personal impressions of the book.
