The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen
Delain was a Kingdom, ruled by King Roland. Roland wasn’t a bad King, but neither was he a good King; he was the kind of Ruler that would be forgotten in the ever-growing lineage of Delain. Roland had an advisor, Flagg, and according to the villagers of Delain, had not grown as much as a year older since he’d come to Delain decades ago. He always wore a black hood to cover his face, and remained a feared mystery to so many people. In the castle, he was avoided by staff and left to his own devices.
Roland had two sons, Peter and Thomas, with his wife Sasha. Sasha died while giving birth to Thomas, nobody questioned the death, but perhaps they should have… Peter, the heir to the throne was adored by all of Delain, he would end up being a great King, not a good King. He took an interest in the villagers, and he was kind to everyone he spoke to, whether they were royalty, servants, or shoemakers.
Flagg, the menacing and dangerous adviser hated Peter, he stood in the way of his ‘plan’ for the Kingdom. So with a little bit of Dragon Sand (An incredibly powerful poison) Flagg starts an event which should bring Delain to its knees.
TEEN RATING: Stephen King’s insanely intricate mind has brought countless bizarre and wonderful novels. The Eyes of the Dragon is not the most crazy piece of Stephen King’s work, but it is incredibly detailed and intriguing. It is slightly long at parts, but the end it worth the wait. 2.9/5 11+
