In the Hall of the Dragon King by Stephen Lawhead is an amazing book.  It tells the story of Quentin, a young acolyte who had been in the service of another god ever since he was a child.  One day, one of the king’s knights comes to the temple bearing dire news that he needed to get to the queen, but he was unable to due to the severity of his injuries.  As a result, Quentin volunteers to go and is then catapulted into an adventure that he won’t forget anytime soon.

Steeped with mystery and adventure, this book also has a lot of underlying Christian themes that become more and more apparent as you read through it.  It’s a great read whether or not you’re religious and the adventure becomes addicting to the point where you just can’t put it down; you just have to find out what happens next.  This book is also the first book of a trilogy, so even once you are done with this one, the story and new adventures will continue in the next!

I highly recommend this book for anyone to read and I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I did, and I shall leave you with the song that some of the countrymen sing:

See the armies so arrayed,
Line on line, ten thousand strong.
See the Dragon King’s sharp blade,
Rising to a song!
See his enemies laid low!
Hear our voices sing:
Let glory crown the victor’s brow,
In the Hall of the Dragon King!
