Very entertaining

I couldn't wait to read the book I have literally been waiting decades to read. When I read a book, I know it is great when I can picture the story as if I am watching a movie - what the characters look like, sound like, their personalities; the scenes and surroundings. I wanted to read it all in one sitting and I can't wait for the next one to come out. The book kept me engaged and always wanting to know what was coming next.

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.

An Epic Adventure

I really enjoyed reading this book as well as the first book "Fire of the Covenant”. It is a wonderful story of bravery and friendship as well as good versus evil. This book is very well-written and a true epic fantasy. I would highly recommend this book to everyone looking for fantasy, or adventure with great characters and a very rich plot. The author spent a tremendous amount of time imagining this world and the beings and creatures that dwell within. There is rich complexity to all the characters and filled with enough action and adventure to satisfy any diehard “Lord of the Rings” reader. I would highly recommend this book as well as the “Fire of the Covenant” to any fan of the epic fantasy, adventure genre.

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.
