Dungeons, Dragons, and much more makes this a great book for young boys!
Knight Kyle lives in Fairyland East along with elves, trolls, dragons, giants, and all sorts of magical creatures. He, along with others, is in search of his great-grandfather’s lost silver lance. Legend has it that the lance comes with invincible power. It has been missing for many years and Kyle knows it is his destiny to find it. He is up against his worst enemies, Rasputin, an evil robber, and Balduin, a magician. Working with Kyle is Lady Constance, the brave lady of the house, Elf Aurin, and Dragobert the dragon and Prince Nepomuk. Together they go on crazy adventures and have the best time ever.
All children enjoy a good magical story. With Knight Kyle, you get that along with many valuable lessons, making this a great book for young readers. I was able to read this in a single day turning the pages quickly to take the next adventure with our young heroes. The pages are filled with teaching moments about sharing, not excluding others just because you may not like them. Another good lesson how it might be hard but never lose hope, just when you are about to give up is when what you have been reaching for will be within your grasp. Kyle and his friends work together and have so much fun on their adventures. The one down point of this was poor editing. I received this on an e-reader and had several paragraphs repeated. I can’t blame poor editing on the author, but feel this shouldn’t have been overlooked. Young children will surely enjoy this magical tale and hopefully learn some good life lessons along the way.
