Lawhead Stephen . tephen R Lawhead In the Hall of the Dragon King ONE THE NEW snow lay deep and undisturbed beneath the silver light of a dawning sky. Overhead, a raven surveyed a silent landscape as its black wings feathered the cold, thin air. The bird’s rasping call was the only sound to be heard for miles, breaking the frozen solitude in irregular staccato. All around, the land lay asleep in the depths of winter. The name sent another ripple through the gathered priests. The King had been absent so long, his name unheard among his own countrymen, that hearing it now brought hope to all gathered there. And what of the King? the old priest continued.

I’m a big fan of Lawhead’s Science Fiction books, and so had big expectations for In the Hall of the Dragon King. The other thing that Quentin's gripping entry into the greater, broken world of the Dragon King is richly told in this riveting epic. While it started out pretty good, I found it bogged down often throughout. I can't remember how many times I've reread this book growing up, and consider it to be one of the best I've read. I shelve mine next to LOTR and Narnia.

His literary imagery is incomparable. Looking forward to the next book in this trilogy. One person found this helpful.

In the Hall of the Dragon King' is the first in the 'Dragon King Triology', and though I've followed many of Stephen Lawhead's series with much anticipation, I wanted to follow this earlier adventure. I liked Quentin's determination and willingness to serve-and-save his king, but see that unless the Great God did not intervene and save him first, his efforts would have been valiant, but in-vain. His literary imagery is incomparable.

Lawhead is a great writer. My 12 year old loves this book. Highly recommend. This is all subjective of course but i think Lawhead is one of the better writers out there - clean and moral to boot. I don't have to worry about my kids reading his books.

It was a good story. I liked the adventure, and the overall story. I thought the characters were all a little similar though.

I didn't like the theology that is present in it, not because it is theology but because it is bad theology. I understand that it is completely a fiction book so there's no need to have good theology since it's a made up world. But I believe one reason books exist is to help us get through the real world well. What I did not like was that it portrayed finding the will of God very mystically. The characters would base God's will off of feelings they felt, or signs they interpreted. Again, this is fiction so that's okay, but I prefer to read books that reflect solid truth in this area.

It was definitely a good story though, so I still give 4 stars.

'In the Hall of the Dragon King' is the first in the 'Dragon King Triology', and though I've followed many of Stephen Lawhead's series with much anticipation, I wanted to follow this earlier adventure. I liked Quentin's determination and willingness to serve-and-save his king, but see that unless the Great God did not intervene and save him first, his efforts would have been valiant, but in-vain. I'm looking forward to the ongoing saga in 'The Warlords of Nin.'

Well, as I finished the book I loved it, the boy made good, and there was a whole world of opportunity welcoming, but somehow I never got round to following up ... and I read this five years ago!!!

Loved the storyline. Lawhead is one of my favorite authors. His literary imagery is incomparable. Looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.

This first book seemed pretty basic to me. There was adventure and action a plenty, making it fairly entertaining, just no originality or depth. It kind of reminded me of a Verne adventure story only what was quaint about Vernes tales seemed rather mundane for a modern science fiction writer. Because it is only one third of the story so far and I have some hope for improvement in the following books I gave it four stars when I was really thinking three or three and a half.

I've read almost everything Stephen Lawhead has written and love every book! I am sorry when I've read the last book because I wish there were more. Lawhead plots well and his characters are well-drawn and interesting. The good guys are for real, with faults and fears, but their courage and determination carry them through. This is the second time I've read this series and I'll probably read them all over again! I highly recommend Stephen Lawhead's books.
I purchased books 2 & 3 before I realized that I needed to read book #1 of the
trilogy which I, of course, purchased immediately from Amazon.com. I found the novels are an excellent read even though I am a grandmother. When I have completed
reading them they will be given to my teenage grandaughter (13). From there they will be donated to her school library where I am a volunteer. They are the type of books I highly recommend for teenagers.
