The Eyes of The Dragon by Stephen King

Last night I finished The Eyes of the Dragon, beautifully told by the master storyteller himself, Stephen King. King has shown his versatility yet again in this fairytale of old. It is the classic tale of good vs. evil. A must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy or who is looking to get lost in a world of kings, magicians, and dragons. When King Roland is poisoned, next-in-line Prince Peter is convicted of said crime and sentenced to spend the rest of his life atop the "needle" tower. Roland's second born son, Tommy, takes the throne at the age of eleven. The kingdom is thrown into chaos, but at the hand of an evil mastermind.

I LOVE LOVED this book. I read it like it was candy. It reminds me of a cross between Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, but on a much less complex level, so to speak. Easy to read and wonderful to get lost in, I highly recommend The Eyes of the Dragon to anyone who is looking to get lost in a good story. Up next is Chuck Palahniuk's Lullaby.
