Item description for In the Hall of the Dragon King (The Dragon King Trilogy, Book 1) by Stephen R. Lawhead...

With the help of the Most High God, young Quentin undertakes an important mission to rescue the Dragon King Eskevar from the traitorous Prince Jaspin and the evil necromancer Nimrood.

Publishers Description
A kingdom hangs in the balance...and a young boy answers the call.

Carrying a sealed message from the war-hero Dragon King to the queen, Quentin and his outlaw companion, Theido, plunge headlong into a fantastic odyssey and mystic quest.  Danger lurks everywhere in the brutal terrain, and particularly in the threats from merciless creatures, both human and not-so-human.

While at the castle, the wicked Prince Jaspin schemes to secure the crown for himself, and an evil sorcerer concocts his own monstrous plan.  A plan that Quentin and Theido could never imagine.

In the youth’s valiant efforts to save the kingdom and fulfill his unique destiny, he will cross strange and wondrous lands; encounter brave knights, beautiful maidens, and a mysterious hermit; and battle a giant, deadly serpent.

In this first book of the Dragon King Trilogy, Stephen R. Lawhead has deftly woven a timeless epic of war, adventure, fantasy, and political intrigue.

More About Stephen R. Lawhead

Stephen R. Lawhead Stephen Lawhead is an internationally acclaimed author of mythic history and imaginative fiction. He was born in 1950, in Nebraska in the USA. His early life was lived in America where he earned a university degree in Fine Arts and attended theological seminary for two years.

His first professional writing was done at Campus Life magazine in Chicago, where he was an editor and staff writer. During his five years at Campus Life he wrote hundreds of articles and several non-fiction books.

After a brief and unsuccessful foray into the music business—as president of his own record company—he launched his free-lance career in 1981. In the Hall of the Dragon King was his first novel.

In 1986 the Lawhead family moved to Britain so that Stephen could conduct research for the PENDRAGON CYCLE books. They settled there permanently in 1990, with some years spent living in Austria and a sabbatical in the United States.

In addition to his twenty-four novels, he has written nine children's books, many of them originally offered to his two sons, Drake and Ross. He is married to Alice Slaikeu Lawhead, with whom he has collaborated on books and articles. They make their home in Oxford, England.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Hall of the Dragon King (The Dragon King Trilogy, Book 1)?

Awesome!!!!!  Oct 11, 2007
In the Hall of the Dragon King is a GREAT begining to a series. You, as a reader, instantly like the main characters and are thrown headlong into their quest for truth and the salvation of their kindgom. Lawhead shows that even in the first series he published, he already had that...that...I don't even know if words can describe it. Lawhead is one of my favorite authors and this book lives up to any and all expectations I had. It is worth any price this site can set.
For Young Adults  Sep 16, 2007
I think you need to remember that this book's aimed for the young adult audience. If you've read Song of Albion, or Byzantium, or Hood and Scarlet, then you read this, you will notice the difference, and I think that's why some people are giving it only a few stars.

However, there's virtually no series I'd recommend more for young adults, especially who are into Fantasy.
Uninspiring Christian Fantasy  Jun 12, 2006
As an avid fantasy lover and non-Christian, I found this book very disappointing. The plot is unoriginal, the characters uninspiring, and I felt cheated by the none-too-subtle religious propoganda -- I realized only after reading the book that the publishing company is all Christian literature. If you're looking for Christian fantasy -- hey, it's a limited genre, and this book isn't all bad. But if you're just looking for good fantasy -- look elsewhere.
Could have been much better  Jul 4, 2003
I haven't read Lawhead's other works, but this was a big disappointment. The characters were shallow, the villains incompetent, the Protestant Christian symbolism too blunt, and the spelling and grammar atrocious. Whoever the editor was should be fired. The only redeeming aspect was a fairly original plot, but it is not enough to save the rest of the book.
The Dragon King Trilogy is on of my favorite series!  Mar 9, 2002
15-years-old acolyte, Quentin is wakened by a commotion in the temple of Ariel one night. A very badly wounded knight had stumbled in to the temple. His name is Ronsard(he is one of my favorite characters) and he has an extremely important message for his Queen Alinea. Ronsard asks if anyone could go and give the message for him. Quentin agrees to go but he can no longer return to the temple. The knight tells him to go to a hermit named Durwin and to give the message without stopping. So, mounted on Ronsard's horse Balder, Quentin rides to Durwin's house. He meets Durwin and also Durwin's friend, Theido. Theido and Quentin rides to Askelon where the Queen was, but they are caught by the crafty coward, Prince Jaspin. The Prince is the King's brother and he wants to have the crown. Quentin escapes and goes to the Queen. The message he gave was that King Eskevar had been captured by the evil necromancer, Nimrood. Then, the Queen, Durwin, and Quentin meets Theido. He had escaped and together they ride to save the King. Quentin learns of a new God, the Most High and he turns away from Ariel and the other gods to worship the true one God. Durwin teaches him more about God on the way.

Can they rescue the King from Nimrood? Can they win the battle with Prince Jaspin's 100,000 men with their 10,000?

This is a wonderful Christian fantasy. The next one, "The Warlords of Nin" is my favorite in the Dragon King Trilogy.
