Review: Let Sleeping Dragons Lie by Garth Nix & Sean Williams
Sir Odo and Sir Eleanor, the youngest knights in the realm, and their talking swords are back and ready for another fun and action packed adventure. Or more to the point Sir Eleanor is ready for another fun and action packed adventure. Sir Odo would rather be at home in the mill. Still, duty calls as the pair find themselves on a dangerous quest to stop an evil impostor from stealing the crown. Rest assured, there are dragons, fights and bats aplenty as the duo team up with Edga and Hundred to complete their quest.
The second novel in the Have Sword, Will Travel series lives up to the high standard set by its predecessor. I found myself thoroughly entertained as Sir Odo and Sir Eleanor went about their quest in the way that only the bravest of children can. The adventures they have along the way are fun and unpredictable, just as a good middle grade fantasy novel should be. With its rich world building and quirky humour, this one is almost certain to appeal to readers of all ages.
