Publisher's Summary

In the wake of the dragon's attack, Kyra is sent on an urgent quest: to cross Escalon and seek out her uncle in the mysterious Tower of Ur. The time has come for her to learn about who she is and who her mother is and to train and develop her special powers. It will be a quest fraught with peril for a girl alone - Escalon is filled with dangers from savage beasts and men alike - one that will require all of her strength to survive.
Her father, Duncan, must lead his men south, to the great water city of Esephus, to attempt to free his fellow countrymen from the iron grip of Pandesia. If he succeeds, he will have to journey to the treacherous Lake of Ire and then on to the icy peaks of Kos, where live the toughest warriors of Escalon, men he will need to recruit if he has any chance of taking the capital.
Alec escapes with Marco from The Flames to find himself on the run through the Wood of Thorns, chased by exotic beasts. It is a harrowing journey through the night as he quests for his hometown, hoping to be reunited with his family. When he arrives, he is shocked by what he discovers.
Merk, despite his better judgment, turns back to help the girl and finds himself, for the first time in his life, entangled in a stranger's affairs. He will not forego his pilgrimage to the Tower of Ur, though, and he finds himself anguished as he realizes the tower is not what he expects.
Vesuvius spurs his giant as he leads the Trolls on their mission underground, attempting to bypass The Flames while the dragon, Theos, has his own special mission on Escalon.
With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, Rise of the Valiant is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, kings and lords, honor and valor, magic, destiny, monsters, and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, deception, ambition, and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

Uncreative

Some things just got very repetitive in this book. The author reuses phrases and words such as "end over end" and "crestfallen" repeatedly through EVERY book. Those are only 2 examples, but there are PLENTY more. Honestly, it makes the reader feel like there was very little effort put into writing the sequels. Did the author run out of vocabulary and imagination?
