Publisher's Summary

The epic adventure continues! As prophecy becomes reality, the factions struggle for control, only to further divide the lands. Some would say that King Andrew Alder foolishly agreed to support the Elves of the Reaches, sending men to aid their cause when the causes of all men in all lands were being put to the test of steel. And in the North, men back their words with action. Against a backdrop of treachery and intrigue, murder and mayhem, the price of freedom is high. Many will pay with their lives. Many will succumb. For when alliances shatter, old hatreds rise anew and the plotting and scheming begin. Bold, inventive, brilliantly imagined, In the Service of Dragons, Book Two is a novel of magic and wonder, a tale of pure excitement you will not soon forget.

Captivating!

I loved this book! It was one of the rare books that so fully absorbed me that I forgot to worry or think of anything else. It drew me into the lives of Adrina, Seth and Vilmos. The author is very descriptive in creating the characters, enabling you to envision the events as they unfold. Equally as important, the narrator was more than excellent. I've listened to it twice now, back to back. It's impossible to put down, and keeps listeners on the edge of their seats waiting to find out what will happen next. This is definitely one of my favorite books. I intend to share it with my children, who are huge Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fans. If you enjoy HP or LOR, you need to try it! You won't be disappointed!

A classic gem of its genre

My son is the avid fantasy reader in the family. Thanks to his recommendations I've read dozens of fantasy novels in recent years. Recently I've read and listened to Eragon and Eldest, The Kingdoms and the Elves 1-4, and In the Service of Dragons 1-2.

For my tastes, and this is a matter of opinion of course, Robert Stanek's Kingdoms and Dragons stories are better and deeper. Not only do they paint a much more richly envisioned world, but the reader gains a better understanding of the characters and their motivations. The writing is beautiful sparse, and I mean that in the best of ways. The author doesn't waste words, and has a rare gift for letting the reader learn about the characters through their actions and dialogue.

Stanek has earned a place in my bookcase among my favorite authors. I think he'll be one of your favorite authors too, right up there with Tolkien, Lewis, and other great fantasy authors. If you loved the other authors you will love Stanek. I cant wait for the third book to come out in audio, reading it in print just isn't enough.
