I think this book is amazing! Although I might be a little biased :) It is the first book in a four part series. It is great for new and old readers and the story keeps you captivated the entire time. The second book in the series, Dominique Ick Lessont Spirits and Legends, is also available. Check it out!

This a great book for someone who is new to reading for their entertainment but it also allows an avid reader to get lost in the mysterious world that the author has created. I enjoyed every page of it and like me, I think everyone who reads the book will be begging for the rest of the series!
I received this as a promotional copy from the author through the Good Reads First Reads program.

I really liked the story; it was engaging, moved along at a good pace, and was fun. The author shows a great deal of talent and promise, and his creativity and ability to create an entertaining world are remarkable.

The book could have benefited from more careful review and/or a much better editor. The sentences are too simple, even for a young adult novel. The author uses the name of the subject to...more

Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Humans, and a Dark Army. No, it's not Lord of the Rings, it's Ick Lessont.

In a mix of Lord of the Rings meets Eragon, Dominique Ick Lessont and the Dragon Knight takes you on a Journey through the land of Lecieldo. Icarus Lessont, better known as Ick, is a young warrior in training and is as surprised as anyone when a dark army attacks and takes over his family castle while he is on a morning run. He narrowly escapes the warriors of the dark army and resolves to return and...more
Dominique Ick Lessont starts off as simply Ick, the grandson of the Dominique Anna. In case you can't figure that out, the Dominique is the leader of the people. This isn't explained until about halfway through the book, by the way.

Anyway, Ick's people are attacked by a mysterious (at first) army, and he has to help defend the humans of the world. He befriends the elves, meets a witch, becomes a dragon knight, and all that jazz. Oh, and there are also several prophecies that intertwine, of cours...more
As a disclaimer, I won this on First Reads.
Overall, the plot was interesting, but the storytelling was juvenile and unpracticed. Juvenile and unpracticed is not a death sentence; one of my favorite books, Arrows of the Queen, by Mercedes Lackey, is quite a novice attempt, but Arrows has a lot of heart, a good plot, and consistently good grammar. Lackey took that combination, improved her writing craft with every book, and is now a famously successful fantasy author. Maybe some day I'll be able t...more
"Dominique Ick Lessont and the Dragon Knight" by Eric Tripp

I won this book through Goodreads Firstreads. I thought this was a really good story with characters and a story I want to read more of. I like the world that the author has created in the story. I don't want to give any of the story away but seeing that Dragon Knight is in the title there is some violence in the story. I think 13 and older would be ok with this book. I'm not sure what age group the author had set in his mind but the m...more
This book felt familiar and I'm not sure why. It could be that some of the characters reminded me loosely of LOTR, which is in no way a bad thing as I adore those books. I actually found this book to be a simple, easy, fun read that never got bogged down by trying too hard. It did take me some time to get used to the 1.5 or double spacing of the font but that's really the only negative I can think of. Would be good for a kid to read alone or with an adult. I look forward to reading the next boo...more

While I find the story line and descriptions to be interesting, the characters need more development and the dialogue seems a bit forced and overly enthusiastic at points. The story line does have promise, but I had a hard time figuring out what age group this book was aimed at. Although the characters and dialogue seemed to be aimed at the tween age group, the fight scenes seemed to be a little too descriptive for this age group. Character development and more natural dialogue would improve thi...more

I won this on First Reads.

I take reading and reviewing books very seriously. Due to deaths and major family health issues, I have not been able to dedicate time or energy towards reading or reviewing. I do not want to do either half heartedly, so I will have to post this for now and will come back when things slow down. At that time I will update this with a proper review.
I won this in a Goodreads Giveaway.

The storyline was interesting, I feel that the characters could've brought more though.
