Publisher's Summary

Thrown into the alternate universe of 14th-century England, 20th-century mathematician Jim Eckert and his wife, Angie, have become Sir James, Baron de Bois de Malencontri, and Lady Angela. A bit of a shock, but they'd coped with it. In fact they were dealing with their new life's hazards and magical manifestations just fine. Until Jim is suddenly transformed into a dragon. None too pleased about this latest turn of events, Jim turns for help to his neighbour, the magician S. Carolinus, who takes him on as an apprentice. When Prince Edward is captured by the French at the Battle of Poitiers, Jim sets out with some companions, including Aaargh the wolf, to join the English forces. He ends up as chief pawn in a battle against the Dark Powers - with extraordinary consequences.

What an adventure...

Science and sorcery collide in this epic tale of high fantasy. I had always enjoyed the story of The flight of dragons, the old Ramkin and Bass animated film from years ago. When I found out it was based on a book series I eagerly looked into getting the stories in the dragon knight series, and was not at all disappointed. The story and characters are extremely well written. The story keeps your interest until the end. Looking forward to the next story and definitely recommend this book.

Good book from a good Author

This was a great book. Read a hard copy many years ago and the audio was not a let down.

My First AudioBook

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I am a big fan of dragons and fantasy that has an overall fun and adventurous story. I would definitely recommend this to a friend or complete stranger. This book or i should say book series has it all for me. I love that it is not so much a simple tale but a telling one that is imaginative and fun. I like how Jim really is set apart from all the rest and really has to work within the rules of society back in the 1400's. I also like how there is a set rule to how everything works, but at the same times doesn't. It's also a fun good vs evil and thats always fun.

Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I really like this voice actor! He is fun and really makes each character distinct

Excellent

Would you consider the audio edition of The Dragon Knight to be better than the print version?

This audio edition is better than the printed version because of Paul Boehmer's reading. He does a great job and adds to the story.

What did you like best about this story?

Our main character trying to deal with his situations while keeping his 20th century self in proportion. It is especially evident as he tries to keep clean and free of lice, ticks in such a way not to give offense to his companions. It is funny in how he tries to keep his alcohol consumption to a minimum as the water is undrinkable and full of disease.

Which scene was your favorite?

It is definitely when Jim Eckert tries to escape from an underwater female water elemental without giving offense and keeping his virtue intact.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I am not a movie person. I have no idea for a tag line.

Any additional comments?

A good second book of this series.

Well written but slow

The writing is good overall.
There is so, so much exposition the stops the D & D plot cold over and over again.
The only way I was able to finish it was by hitting the fast forward through the last forty percent of the book regularly.
