Five Kingdoms: Rogue Knight by Brandon Mull
Cole Randolph never meant to come to The Outskirts, but when his friends were kidnapped on Halloween he had to try and save them. Now he’s trapped in a world that lies between wakefulness and dreaming, reality and imagination, life and death.
Cole’s hunt for his lost friends has led him to the kingdom of Elloweer. Accompanied by new friends Mira, Twitch, and Jace, Cole teams up with the resistance movement and joins the search for Mira’s sister Honor.
But Elloweer has grown unstable. A mysterious enemy is wiping out towns, leaving no witnesses or survivors. And an infamous rebel known throughout the kingdom as the “Rogue Knight” is upsetting the balance of power.
Rogue Knight is the 2nd of 5 installments in the Five Kingdoms series. Picking up where the first book left off, Cole and his friends are searching for Mira’s sister and Cole’s friends sold into slavery. Cole learns more about himself and a power he holds. And plenty of new and colorful characters enter the scene.
This sequel is just as good as the first novel, if not quite as suspenseful. This land isn’t quite as perilous and different as before. Though the strength is in the numerous engaging and captivating characters. There are several obstacles along their journey, and the adventure builds to a big show down with a unique creature. Young fantasy fans from middle readers to adults will enjoy this exciting series.
