Sarah Broadhurst's view...

August 2014 Book of the Month.

The first in a new fantasy series. Our hero Sir Benfro is a dragon and this is a world where dragons walk upright but have also been hunted nearly to extinction by the men who fear them. A difficult concept to struggle with at first, but once you get your head round it this is a hugely enjoyable fantasy adventure that will have you desperate to read the next in the series and discover what happens next to Sir Benfro and Errol, the human boy with whom his life is inextricably tied. J. D. Oswald also writes a crime series as James Oswald so if you’ve enjoyed his writing then there’s lots more to keep you entertained.

Synopsis

Dreamwalker by J.D. Oswald

Dreamwalker is the first extraordinary novel in the new epic fantasy series from J. D. Oswald - The Ballad of Sir Benfro. In a small village, miles from the great cities of the Twin Kingdoms, a young boy called Errol tries to find his way in the world. He's an outsider - he looks different from other children and has never known his father. No one, not himself even has any knowledge of his true lineage. Deep in the forest, Benfro, the young male dragon begins his training in the subtle arts. Like his mother, Morgwm the Green, he is destined to be a great Mage. Not for one minute would these two unlikely heroes imagine that the balance of all life in the Twin Kingdoms will be in their hands. But at this moment, all that has changed...And so begins The Ballad of Sir Benfro - the most extraordinary tale of the great dragons returning to the kingdom of men. Breathtakingly compulsive and beautifully written, The Ballad of Sir Benfro is a magical tale of the great dragons returning to the kingdom of men. Readers hooked to the world of George R R Martin's Game of Thrones and those longing for the next Tolkien film adaptation will find the perfect solace in J.D. Oswald's rich world of epic fantasy. Dreamwalker is followed by The Rose Cord and The Golden Cage. J. D. Oswald is the author of the epic fantasy series, The Ballad of Sir Benfro. Currently, Dreamwalker, The Rose Cord and The Golden Cage are all available as Penguin ebooks. He is also the author of the Detective Inspector McLean series of crime novels under the name James Oswald. In his spare time James runs a 350-acre livestock farm in North East Fife, where he raises pedigree Highland Cattle and New Zealand Romney Sheep.
