Doing the best she can to raise happy, healthy children

Monthly Archives: November 2014

I was extremely fortunate to be given opportunity to read a pre-release copy of the book The Green Dagger by Kelly Hess. A short while a go I read the first in the series Eyes of the Enemy.  I highly recommend reading that book and then checking out the new one.

The Green Dagger by Kelly Ness

The Green Dagger continues the story of Beynn and Fritz. The green dagger had been lost for years until it briefly resurfaced. Now the Queen Sorak demands the return of the dagger or Delvengard faces war. The evil dagger’s effect on Fritz is taking its toll. Fritz and Beynn are off to another quest to discover the dagger’s secrets.

This is the second book in the series and Kelly Hess has not disappointed. This story is weaved together with the first seamlessly. I found myself staying up for “one more chapter” until it was way too late. The Green Dagger is a great weekend book- you’ll start and want to continue until you finish it. The character’s have depth and despite written for younger children, adults would also enjoy this book. Kids, beware, your parents may steal this book for a fun-filled fantasy ride!

I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys fantasy books, especially junior high kids.

I give this book 5 out of 5 bookends.

If you’ve not read the first one….go now and get it read it and then get this one when it’s released in early December! Here is the book on Amazon.
