About Dragonwatch: Wrath of the Dragon King
After a humiliating defeat at the hands of Kendra and Seth, Celebrant, King of Dragons, prepares to unleash his fury and take control of his native preserve. Two of the seven dragon sanctuaries have already fallen. Will Wyrmroost be next?
Armed with secret information from a new ally, Celebrant seeks a talisman that will guarantee victory in the war against the humans. With a cursed castle and traitorous creatures standing in the way, Kendra and Seth must attempt to foil Celebrant’s plan and beat him to his prize.
Will the two young caretakers rally enough support from the creatures of Wyrmroost to quell the uprising and protect the world from draconic dominion? One thing is certain—dragons are deadly foes, and one wrong move could bring swift defeat. It will take more than Kendra, Seth, and their current allies have ever given to endure the wrath of the Dragon King.
Brandon Mull is one of my favorite authors. And my daughters love his books as well. His books are a must read at our house. In fact, this book has been fought over. You know it’s good when that happens!
This book picks up where the first Dragonwatch left off. If you haven’t read that one, you really need to read it. Before you read any more of this review or before you read this one.
I love how Brandon Mull has kept Seth and Kendra consistent throughout both the Fablehaven series and this one. The reader knows the characters well enough to know how they will respond to things. Both Seth and Kendra are great characters. I love that you get to see things through their perspectives.
Another fun thing about this one is that we get to see things through a newer characters perspective as well. Knox is Seth and Kendra’s cousin. He and Seth seem to be cut from a similar cloth. They are both more curious than they should be about everything. And they both get into trouble because of it.
I loved the fantasy of this one. The way the author describes things like things like the feast with the dragons made it easy for me to picture it in my mind. And there are so many fun and clever things in this one.
If you’re a lover of middle grade books, fantasy stories, or dragons, you will love this book and the whole series.
I was sent a copy of Dragonwatch: Wrath of the Dragon King as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
