Ok, definitely gory and bloody and horrific. The start of The Lion Vrie was a little slow as well, and kind of confusing for me. But... it did mount up magnificently. And ended... terribly! All I am left with is the probability that a beloved character had died, and another beloved character has been captured by the Dairne-Reih! -And, not to mention, quite a burning desire to read the next book, Athera's Dawn!
The White Lion Chronicles is definitely intense. I read through the last third of the b

This is the second of a fantastic series by Christopher Hopper, author of The White Lion Chronicles, and co-author of The Berinfell Prophecies.
In the beginning of The Lion Vrie, Dionia’s armies are scattered and few. The kings of Dionia have been lost. The dead are limitless. And the Fallen are attacking their own race, without a single moment of hesitation. This is also bad because those that are not Fallen and are in disarray are not expecting their own race to turn on them. However, a remnant

Taking up where he left off, Christopher Hopper embarks on a tale beginning in destruction and ending in destruction. The world of Dionia is in ruins, their Kings have all fallen, and even the Most High has seemingly abandoned them. Morgui’s power is growing, his might spreading to the remotest parts of the land. The fallen one’s plan extends deep into Earth, as the Only Son prepares to lay His life down.

It is at this point, the weakest in all of the world’s time, that the Order of the White Lio

Adriel has fallen.

The impact of this hits all the corners of Dionia. Adriel, the cornerstone of their world, has fallen to Morgui, and the murderous Dairne-Reih are raging across Dionia. But even worse is the threat of the fallen. Men are turned against men, and the true malice of Morgui is revealed as the pages of the Lion Vrie turn. It seems like all is lost.

Luik and the remnants of Dionia flee to Mt. Dakka, and work begins on fortifying it. But can it sustain the wars of Morgui? And what will

The kings of Dionia are dead or disappeared. Humans are turning from loyal men to treacherous Fallen in an instant, slaughtering their own kind without a single moment of hesitation. What is left of the armies has escaped to Mount Dakka, a mountain peak in the north. Luik, son of Lair, overall leader of the Dibor makes a slow recovery after he has recovered, before a long and cold inussle, or winter, Luik travels to find his love and friend, Princess Anorra, for she hasn’t been seen for many day ...more

After reading Rise of the Dibor I didn’t really think I would like Lion Vrie… Well I was wrong, Lion Vrie is an original story about the Dibor, Fane, The Dwarves of Ot, Annora, the Lion Vrie, and The Almighty.

In the sequel to Rise of the Dibor, life is grim…

Morgui has won the battle, Athera’s men are fleeing, women and children are missing, friends have fallen or are missing, Ragnar is dead and it seems as if the Lion Vrie and The Almighty has turned their backs on the people of Athera.

It took about 6 months, before I finally decided to read the sequel of the Rise of the Dibor. Not that the first book was not written well, but all that heavy atmosphere, constant rain, advance of darkness, Adriel destruction, etc. at the end of the first book just exhausted me. But there was one thing that still intrigued me and it was what happened with the dwarf, Fane and the body of king Ragnar.

I was not disappointed when I finished the The Lion Vrie. The chapter of the land of Ot under the

The Lion Vrie, written by Christopher Hopper, is the second in the White Lion Chronicles. It is an allegorical christian fantasy fiction that contains many moral developments.
It takes place after the great battle which submitted most of Dionia to Morgui’s control. Luik is taken to Mount Dakka, a mountain fortress, to recover. After he has healed, he sets out to Ariel’s now barren ruins to search for the missing Dibor. There, he instead finds Anorra, and they return to Mt. Dakka. At that point,

This is a unique book that took a while to draw me in but had an epic ending.

Hopper seemed to have much potential for a good style. There were frequent well-constructed phrases and clever metaphors, but the story was bogged down with many, many typographical errors and frequent confusing sentences.

Plot-wise, there were pros and cons. As I stated before, it took me a long time to get drawn into the book; it was nearly the end before I was truly enjoying it. In many ways the plot or characters wer

What an action filled fantasy book! There are so many twists and adventures that you will not want to put this book down!

This is the second book in The White Lion Chronicles and is the follow up to “Rise of the Dibor.” It is a Christian fantasy book, which you don’t get a change to read very often. This particular book is written in an easy to read language.

The story follows Luik as he is injured and travels to reach his loved ones. He encounters many mishaps and interesting characters.

This, the second installment in The White Lion Chronicles, was indeed darker and more intense than The Rise of the Dibor had been. It is so difficult to see the characters you have come to love endure so much loss and pain. And I have come to feel their pain. To see the world you love plunged into despair and separated from God's continual presence must be heart-wrenching.

I think that is what I love (and hate) about the book. It doesn't ignore the fact that life is full of pain and suffering. An

This book, while I have enjoyed other books just as much but in different ways, was a very good kind of unique. The originality of the book is amazing, and I really felt like I was there, the world building skills were fantastic! Mr Hopper made me believe it was really happening; it was no longer just a story. All in all, this is an awesome book, one problem though. Before you start to read it you need to have the next book ready to read, because Christopher Hopper leaves you with quite some cli ...more

This book leaves much to desire for the final installment. Everything is left in shambles. Can the realm survive the brutal attacks from all corners? Who will be at the frontlines to see the dawn of a new age, where (hopefully) evil will be defeated and righteousness will prevail! Well written, thought provoking, and a definite page turner: this is a must read for all fantasy lovers.

The land of Dionia has been shattered by evil's overwhelming tide. As the few survivors struggle to regroup and survive, fear looms. The battle left them without a king. How can these broken people heal?

From the underground world of Ot to the summit of Mt. Dakka, the fight for freedom rages on, for Morgui will not rest until every son of Ad has been utterly destroyed.

Who is the High King's son? Where are the mysterious Tribes of Ot? Do the people of Dionia have enough faith and strength left to

What if all you knew was lost? What if Destruction surrounded you? How would you rebuild? And where would you turn for help? Would you believe in God?

As Luik discovers his true history, his friends Anorra, Brax, and the rest of the Dibor stay together as they find the secret behind the Lion Vrie…
The Lion Vrie is better than the first! It is more interesting, and more capturful(not sure that’s a word) I highly recommend it, and if any of you are lovers of fantasy, then you’ll probably like this.

This was a pretty good book. It taught a lot on friendship and courage and humility and I enjoyed that. It was a little slow in the beginning, but once you got past that it picked up speed and ended well. I can't wait to read the third book Athera's Dawn and find out what happens.

As book two of the White Lion Chronicles the Lion Vrie loses none of the pace the first pace sets. As Luik and his friends encounter new enemies they must learn how to discern between friend and foe. A great book and I recommend it to anyone who loves a great tale with even greater depth.

Fabulous storytelling with lots of imagination! The edge-of-your-seat battle scenes and underlying spirituality of it all give impetuous to read faster to get to the end.
I look forward to Book Three.
