Publisher's Summary

Another story sparkling with wit and humor from New York Times best-selling author Mercedes Lackey.

Traditionally, marauding dragons are soothed only by a virgin sacrifice. And so practical-minded Princess Andromeda - with the encouragement of her mother's court - reluctantly volunteers to do her duty, asking only for a sword to defend herself. Well, her offer is accepted, but the weapon isn't forthcoming, and so Andromeda faces the dragon alone.

Until a Champion arrives to save her - sort of. Sir George doesn't quite defeat the dragon, but as Andromeda finishes rescuing herself she discovers that beneath the Good Knight's well-meaning though inexperienced heroics lies a further tale… Still, Andromeda can't leave her seacoast country in further jeopardy from the dragon's return, and so she and…er… George join to search for the dragon's lair. But even - especially - in the Five Hundred Kingdoms, bucking with Tradition isn't easy. It takes the strongest of wills, more than a hint of stubbornness, quick thinking and a refusal to give up, no matter what happens along the way.

Somehow, though, none of this was taught in princess school…

Not exactly what I expected

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I expect a good story from Mercedes and I was not disappointed. You come to expect certain things from fairy-tales, What I did not expect was how I burst out laughing when the unicorns came. The reaction to them and someone being "outed" by them was something I hadn't considered. The performance and story still makes me smile a week later. I simply must have the next book in the series.

Addictive Series comparable to Once Upon a Time

If you've seen the new TV show Once Upon a Time with all the most well know old fables and stories, and you liked that you will love how Gabra Zackman brings this series to life. Mercedes writes a good story but most of her books are read by terrible narrators (I found that out trying to listen to a couple others and then reading all the reviews). Not to worry in this series, because you have Gabra Zackman. After this series I fell in love with Gabra's reading style and went so far as to follow her on Facebook, as well as look up other stories she has read. Most of my favorite audible books now are read by Gabra. Luckily she is a prolific reader and audible has dozens of pages of books read by her. I just feel bad that Mercedes Lackey choose not to user her for any of her other series. I wish Audible would go back through some of Mercedes books with bad reviews (MOST ARE ALL attributed to narrator boredom.. read the comments) and have her redo the books. Other great narrators (IMO) are Martha Harmon Pardee, Barbra Rosenblat (she made me read 18 books of the Amelia Peabody series.. the most addicted I've ever been to audible!), Becca Battoe (I have friends who disliked her in 50 shades but I ended up really seeing the world through her eyes easily, unfortunately the other books she narrates are mostly for kids, ugh!).

GREAT SERIES, a must listen for anyone (mostly women) who love comedy, mystery, magic, fantasy, love, and tales that remind of you of Cinderella, lost princesses and knights in shining armor. NOT a kids book.

SO GOOD!

I am so happy to find this series! Virgin sacrifice, dragons, I really did not see the twists coming. Just a cute story. I was happy that this book did not have the detailed romantic encounters of the first book.

Must love Fairytales

Would you listen to One Good Knight again? Why?

No as I own way too many audio books that I have yet to listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Our Dragons heros and the Fox. Lots of pure charm

Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

Ms Zackman has such a full range. The Dragons and fox stand out.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A way different spin on an old fairytale classic. I thought there would be more funny dialogue based on other reviews. Not in this one. Lots of tender scenes. The dragons using their head and bodies so sweet.

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for tenderness, then this is for you. This is a cross between romance and
fairytale. Must love the old classic fairytales.

One of my favorite reads of all time

This book is one that I’ve always enjoyed. An interesting take on fairytale lore, dragons, a bookish princess, and an uncommon knight. This audiobook reading only added to my enjoyment. I highly recommend this book to fans of Katie Macalister and Gail Carriger.

It's okay.

This protagonist reminds me a bit of Fanny Price, another character who really puts the agony in protagonist. What she doesn't put in is much agency. She mostly does what other people tell her to do: research this topic, do the dishes, stay out of the fighting, wear this dress... She cries a lot, so there's that. I still have doubts about what kind of ruler she'll be. The dragon's idea, while not perfect, was probably a better one. Too bad she burst into tears before they could discuss it.

Most excellent as usual

Mercedes Lackey outcomes herself with each installment of this magical series. These volumes are my favorite go-to when I want a fun fabulous romp through fairy retold. And I could listen to Gabra Zachman's enchanting voice forever.

Not the best of the series

Well read and decent for a single read through, but the ugly duckling of the series for a certainty. And for anyone who buys books that you woild like to read time and time again, this wont get much milage.

As a romance it fell a bit flat as the amount of time spent building the relationship between the two who love on a purely mental and emotional level since they lack compatible physical forms never developed enough to justify the apparent intensity of the affection. And the other pair never even get a moment of consideration for their apparently equally as intense passion. All in all it felt rushed and full of time killing rather then maturation, which is never a plesant combination.

Andromeda spends far more time focusing on all the things that make her uncomfortable ratyer then ever seeming to come into her own as a character or someone who has grown through the course of the narrative.

New classic

Would you consider the audio edition of One Good Knight to be better than the print version?

It's not that is better than the other.
They both have their own benefits.
I love Gabra in this. Her voice is great.

Who was your favorite character and why?

George is a great character. Much more complex than you initially think.

What about Gabra Zackman’s performance did you like?

She portrays great emotion in her voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The sacrifice scene was more moving in the audio book than I expected. The twist less so than I had expected.

Any additional comments?

Definitely worth the buy.
