I recently got Andrew Wichland’s book Blood Calls (Dragon Knight Chronicles book 2). He continues his saga with the same tight storytelling and fast paced action typical of his novels. (I’ve read two previous titles by him and they never fail to disappoint.)
In Blood Calls, Robin’s got a problem. Maltanore may be dead, but his armor is still acting wonky. His quest to ree the magical beings previously enslaved takes him through space… and the stakes increase when he discovers his long lost sister being dragged into slavery.
The story is a bit of a genre blender, which I love (and do with my own fiction). It felt like a wonderful smash up of Robin Hood, Pirates of the Caribbean in Space, and Voltron… especially that Voltron flare with its dynamic assortment of characters, giant, cosmic evil, and the high calling of the Voltron Paladins (or, in Wichland’s story, the Knights.)
I’d recommend this book to anyone loving am solid adventure and it seems the Dragon Knights will be a solid series with a number of installments before the adventure concludes. I got a copy of his book for free in exchange for an honest review on my blog, Inside the Inkwell. You can get a copy of it here.
