A Review of Warden of Greyrock by K. V. Johansen

Thursday, Apr 16, 2009 at 9:39am

Warden of Greyrock by K.V. Johansen is the third book of the Warlocks of Talverdin series.

In this continuation of the rich, complex fantasy epic, the evil Prince Alberick ruthlessly plots to annihilate the warlocks and the half humans whose lack of pure blood disgusts him. King Dugald, Queen Eleanor and the loyal Maurey, the new Warden of Greylock, must stay one step ahead of him in this medieval, spy-filled world. The dialogue is sharp, even funny, and the plot is action-packed and fascinating. The themes of racism and co-operation will engage all younger teens. This book is a great gift of reading for all parents and grandparents to consider!
