Ok for young teens,
This review is from: The Eyes of the Dragon (Paperback)
A bit different from the usual King offering.
Flagg (from `The Stand') is the royal magician to the ageing Roland the Good. When the King is seemingly poisoned by his eldest son Peter, the throne is passed to Thomas, his younger brother. Flagg ensures that he is the only advisor, determined to plunge the land of Delaine into chaos.
Can Peter escape from the needle in time to save the day? Can civil war be averted?
I have to says that the book flowed well enough, but anyone who is a fan of King for his horror work will be bitterly disappointed. Often the prose seems too childish, and on occasion I think maybe King was having a side bet on how many times he could use the phrase `Time out of Mind' in a single novel.
Worth a look, but not up to his usual standard. Not his worst book I have read, but very close. I think maybe is should have been referenced under the `Young Adult' section of the bookshop.
