Well Worth the Wait
Having read the first book, I was very excited for the second.
I was a bit impatient, but it was well worth the wait.
The transition from first to second book was flawless.
Although, I've never been big on battles, this was written in such a manner that it wasn't offensive or 'draggy'. It was enjoyable riding along as the twins begin to mature. The characters have become more real and more liked, as well as, disliked. It was a wonderful way to introduce us to the dragons! Mr. Cruikshank is a truly gifted writer and brings life to his characters and to the story. Alas, I now have to try and contain my patience for installment #3. I will look forward to greeting my Covenant friends! ( soon, I hope ? )

Don’t Miss This One!!
As intricately woven as Martin's "Game of Thrones" and mystically enchanting as Rawling's "Harry Potter", Peter Cruikshank's first novel is an amazing read. His style is so clear and the characters so real that I felt I was reading in living color. It is an encompassing tale of magic, and majesty, of dragons and adventure, that has a magnetic grip on the reader. It left me anxiously awaiting the sequel, a feeling I haven't experienced since Jean Auel's "Clan of the Cave Bear."

You have been dragon-called to read this book
Peter Cruikshank's Fire of the Covenant (Dragon called legend, book 1) is an outstanding debut novel that is sure to appeal to epic fantasy lovers of all ages.
It's the story of Princess Willoe - who is much happier with a sword in her hand than socialising with the ladies at court; and her twin brother Prince Rowyn - who would rather be studying in his uncle Brom's tower than swinging a sword on the training ground.
Unfortunately for the twins their grandfather, the King of Cainwen, has other ideas for them with Willoe to be married off and Rowyn to take up the life of a man-at-arms.
But there is something special about these siblings and the King isn't the only one who has plans for their future. Pursued by the priests of a religious order who would use the twins' talents to dominate the world, Willoe and Rowyn come to learn of a covenant made by one of their ancestors with the King of the dragons - and the heartbreaking role they have to play in it.
Or do they?
Fire of the Covenant contains all the elements you'd expect from a classic epic fantasy romp with more battles, magic, elves, dwarves (or dwarf-like creatures), dragons and deities than you can poke a sword at. And while there is plenty of action and intrigue to keep readers turning the pages, the real strength of the story lies in its characters.
Cruikshank has crafted some wonderful characters to fill his well-realised world, with likeable protagonists, deplorable villains and a supporting cast that are full of surprises. I found myself caring about these characters and wanting to know more about them as the story unfolded.
Fire of the Covenant kept me engaged right to the very last page and had me craving the next book in the series.

A very well written, engaging, traditional fantasy novel.
Don't let the cover fool you! I write that first because I am not a fan of this style of cover art!
However, "Fire of the Covenant" is a very well written, traditional epic fantasy! There is something in here for every reader of fantasy to enjoy - action, adventure, battles, magical creatures...even a smattering of romance. The novel is well structured and moves at a good pace. The action scenes are engrossing and the dialogue convincing. What I want when I read a fantasy novel is to be transported from the hum drum world around me and entertained.
If a book does this and I can visualise it as I read, then I am happy. "Fire of the Covenant" delivered all this! I look forward to the sequel.

OK, I can do the normal thing and speak about character development, great writing, great story, but I'm not. What my review comes down to is this - I finished the book and was left wanting the story to continue! I can't wait for the next book. Actually I really need the second book!
