Five Star

Exciting, engaging, full of twists and turns!

This book is well-written with likable and well-developed characters. The action is believable and exciting, and even the fantastical seems possible in this world. The maps provide guidance and realism as characters travel place to place, and the descriptions of each location, character, and event make it easy to visualize. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy stories and is in 9th grade or older.

Anticipating Volume 2

This was the kind of book I didn’t want to put down. I found myself having to finish the chapter before I would. I liked the way the author was able to paint a picture without droning on and on with way to many unnecessary words, I appreciate the concise way this book is written.
There is much excitement from start to finish. If you enjoy wizards, dragons and elves, mixed with evil priests this novel is a perfect choice.
I recommend this novel whole heartedly.

A very well written, engaging, traditional fantasy novel.

Don’t let the cover fool you! I write that first because I am not a fan of this style of cover art!

However, “Fire of the Covenant” is a very well written, traditional epic fantasy! There is something in here for every reader of fantasy to enjoy – action, adventure, battles, magical creatures…even a smattering of romance. The novel is well structured, and moves at a good pace. The action scenes are engrossing and the dialogue convincing. What I want when I read a fantasy novel is to be transported from the hum drum world around me and entertained.

If a book does this and I can visualise it as I read, then I am happy. “Fire of the Covenant” delivered all this! I look forward to the sequel.

Engaging Medieval Fantasy

This is an engaging medieval fantasy novel well worth your time. “Fire of the Covenant” manages to go in unexpected directions while still hitting all the expected fantasy elements from wizards and dwarfs and dragons to expert swordsmen and charming ladies. There are four major protagonists, and each has an interesting role to play, an aspect which feels fresh to me. Scene to scene, there is always something to keep you moving forward into the story, always a reason to turn the page. I stayed involved in the story and in its world, and look forward to reading the next books in the series as they become available.

You have been dragon-called to read this book

Peter Cruikshank’s Fire of the Covenant (Dragon called legend, book 1) is an outstanding debut novel that is sure to appeal to epic fantasy lovers of all ages.

It’s the story of Princess Willoe – who is much happier with a sword in her hand than socialising with the ladies at court; and her twin brother Prince Rowyn – who would rather be studying in his uncle Brom’s tower than swinging a sword on the training ground.

Unfortunately for the twins their grandfather, the King of Cainwen, has other ideas for them with Willoe to be married off and Rowyn to take up the life of a man-at-arms.

But there is something special about these siblings and the King isn’t the only one who has plans for their future. Pursued by the priests of a religious order who would use the twins’ talents to dominate the world, Willoe and Rowyn come to learn of a covenant made by one of their ancestors with the King of the dragons – and the heartbreaking role they have to play in it.

Or do they?

Fire of the Covenant contains all the elements you’d expect from a classic epic fantasy romp with more battles, magic, elves, dwarves (or dwarf-like creatures), dragons and deities than you can poke a sword at. And while there is plenty of action and intrigue to keep readers turning the pages, the real strength of the story lies in its characters.

Cruikshank has crafted some wonderful characters to fill his well-realised world, with likeable protagonists, deplorable villains and a supporting cast that are full of surprises. I found myself caring about these characters and wanting to know more about them as the story unfolded.

Fire of the Covenant kept me engaged right to the very last page and had me craving the next book in the series.

Highly recommended.
