Kid View: Knights of the Borrowed Dark by Dave Rudden (Knights of the Borrowed Dark trilogy , book #1)
This book has somehow wormed its way to the top of my Xav’s Favs list and my heart. It is such a gripping tale and I hung onto every word. But I think the coolest thing about reading the book wasn’t even the book itself…..it was reading it in Dublin because sometimes in the book the characters are just walking around Dublin, Ireland, and I think that is part of what made me have such a strong connection to the book.
Something about Dave Rudden‘s writing style just gets you sucked into the book teleported to another dimension. It really allows your mind and imagination to run free. Everything that gets written down in the book is somehow believable, even if he wrote something as crazy as elephants are purple, he would describe it with such detail that would make you actually believe they were purple.
Knights of the Borrowed Dark is the first book in the Knights of the Borrowed Dark trilogy and I would say they are very on track to become as popular as Harry Potter! They are so good!
P.S. I just found out there is a third book that will come out sometime that I don’t know yet 🙂
