KIRKUS REVIEW

A new adventure for Jim Eckert, once a college math professor, and now Baron James of Malencontri in an alternate14th- century England where magic works and Jim has a not-so-secret identity as a powerful but rather dim-witted dragon. There’ll be double trouble for Jim this time out, although both problems will eventually merge: the Earl of Cumberland intends to march against Jim with a huge army; and in Lyonesse, a land now lying under the sea where three powers-—Old Magic, trees, and beasts—-reign supreme, King Arthur and his knights (and foes like Morgan le Fay and Modred) are threatened by Dark Powers. So Jim, with his acquired knowledge of magic and his shape-shifting ability, his loyal sidekick Sir Brian Neville-Smythe, Hob the hobgoblin, and a magical questing beast, once again must somehow prevail against the forces of darkness. Another satisfying entry in this well-established, colorful, and entertaining series
