Product Description

Amazon Review

Owlknight follows on from Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon's two earlier novels about Darian Firkin , Owlflight and Owlsight. By now the boy who ran from barbarian invaders is both Knight of Valdemar and a Master Mage; he is governor of a small province and in love with Keisha who returns his feelings, but he still has problems and responsibilities. For one thing, he has never solved the mystery of what happened to his parents; for another, Keisha refuses to marry him lest his role as governor and hers of healer come into conflict--and there are still barbarians beyond the border and one day they will come back.

The story of how these problems are all resolved is told in a quiet tone unusual in this sort of epic fantasy. Darian has as much to look within for the solution to these issues as to struggle in the outside world, and the woodland journey in the course of which he does this is much of the time a celebration of the renewal of the human soul by the natural world.

Lackey and Dixon have found a courtly meditative way of telling an attractively simple story; Darian's growth to final maturity is inevitable, but still fascinating. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Owlknight is the end of the Owl series where Darian, a young Valdemaran who was adopted by the Taleydras (Hawkbrothers) has to deal with the pressures of being a adult. Darian Firkin's third adventure is well worth a read. This Trilogy does not follow the usual formulaic Fantasy plot of 'saving the World from ultimate doom'. The plot of this trilogy is carried only by strong characterisation and their eventual growth and development. If you read all three books in the Darian's Tale in the correct sequence you will see what I mean. In this trilogy Misty Lackey and Larry Dixon haven chosen to avoid your typical royal politics and court intrigues, and I found this a breath of fresh air into the sometimes-stale Fantasy realm. Darian's slow maturation in the course of three novels from an obnoxious teenager in 'Owlflight' to the heroic adult in 'Owlknight' is a pleasure to read.

This is a great addition to the Valdemar series - with some interesting insights into Tayledras life. Darrian's development throughout these novels from sulky adolescent to accomplished adult is a pleasure to discover.

This book has surprised me by taking the barbarian enemies once again, but using them in a way that kept the plot pretty fresh. I was surprised once or twice, and burst out laughing on a few occasions, which is a good indicator to the quality in my opinion. The characters are up to the normal high standards of a Valdemar book, and a couple of things are revealed about them that keep the reader guessing about their actions. All in all this is a very good read.

I was fascinated by Owlflight and Owlsight and eagerly went out and bought Owlknight only to be dissapointed by a poor plotline from the normally flowing Lackey.

She has done it again! I could'nt put it down and once finished I started it all over again. so loath was I to leave her wonderful world where heros exist and a true heart and love really do make a difference. More please Mercedes! Valdemars story has many tales left to tell and I want to read them all!

Format: Paperback
This book continues the story of Darian and answers many of the questions that had arisen within the first two. Like them it will keep you hooked all of the way through, Mercedes Lackey has succeeded in making this book unforgettable, the characters are so real that you could swear you knew them. The character development is intriguing and the fast pace will keep you hooked.
This book will keep you glued to your chair until you're finished and leave you with a huge grin on your face once you've done.
