Rogue Knight

About the book: Magic and danger abound in the second book in a series of fanciful, action-packed adventure; (Publishers Weekly, starred review) from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series.

Cole Randolph never meant to come to The Outskirts, but when his friends were kidnapped on Halloween he had to try and save them. Now he's trapped in a world that lies between wakefulness and dreaming, reality and imagination, life and death.

Cole's search for his friends has led him to Elloweer, another of the five kingdoms that make up The Outskirts. He's accompanied by Mira, Twitch, and Jace, new friends he's met here in the Outskirts who each have their own important missions.

The group is following news that Mira's sister, Honor, could be in danger. However, Cole and Mira are soon the ones facing direct threat, and must resort to a fascinating new kind of magic to protect themselves. Their journey brings them across familiar faces, some more welcome than others, until their paths ultimately cross with the infamous man known throughout Elloweer as the Rogue Knight.

Will he turn out to be an unstoppable enemy, or a key ally?

Every move is filled with danger as Cole and his new friends try and outwit the High King, who will stop at nothing to regain what he has lost.

My review: I am completely amazed at just how creative Brandon Mull is! This book and his other books, are full of the kind of fantasy that kids (and their moms too!) love to read. I love the way that he writes, his characters are so complex and well-written. The plot will keep you interested until the very end, and longing for the next book in the series to be written. And you'll be thinking too, wondering just how Cole, Dalton, Jenna and the others are going to be able to get back home. I really enjoyed the elements of magic, or what is called Shaping, in the Five Kingdoms. It's really creative and I know that the kids who read it will love it too! I will join the ranks of those waiting for the next book in the series, can't wait!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
