    1 thought on “The Dragon, the Earl, and the Troll”

    1. This one dragged a bit and had many plot holes, but I like this series over all. The characters appeal to me and each book can stand on its own.

    2. The storyline keeps you on your toes, as it weaves a lot of different problems for Jim Eckert to solve. As usual, being from the 20th century, he goes about solving them in ways different from the time period he is now in. The series is good in that the author recalls throughout, scenes and actions from earlier books that give credence to present actions, but sometimes it is like adding a full description of a meal that so many authors use to fill pages. Looking forward to reading the rest of th [...]

    3. I made it to page 12 and decided I had too many good books on the shelves to waste my time on this one. Though I was looking for a light fast read, this was just too campy for me. The main characters are on their castle wall supposedly contemplating the imminent demise of themselves and everyone within and they're merely wistful about it. The sudden incidental entrance of a friendly giant scares away the invading force. And then a AAA+ rated wizard shows up demanding the assistance of a C- rated [...]

    4. Ten years after reading this series for the first time, and I'm beginning to really sympathize with the crotchety old mage Jim is apprenticed to. So many little problems, all with a (potentially) easy magical solution, and still he persists in doing things the hard way. You're a mage, Jim Eckert - do some goddamned magic! I thought I remembered him being a lot more thoughtful, as far as magic went, but apparently that doesn't happen until much farther along in the series.

    5. I really enjoyed this book, the author has really developed his writing skills throughout the series.The story is very strong, probably my favourite in the series so far, even better than the first one! There are many plot points and it is not as linear as the previous books. The characters are once again really good, with interesting personalities and you really get drawn to them.

    6. I feel like this book is one of the better ones in the series. His writting has improved in fantasy over the years and this books shows it. I would place this as 2nd or 3rd most enjoyable in the series, after the first book naturally.

    7. This is my favorite book in The Dragon Knight series. It involves A Dragon, an Earl AND a Troll, imagine that! It also takes place during the holidays and the holidays in Ye Olde England are pretty awesome. Read it during Christmas for a wintry vibe!
