Warning: contains major spoilers for book 1 of the series, 'Draykon'.

I really enjoyed the first book of the Draykon series. It had interesting characters, an unusual world and magic system, and that just-one-more-chapter style that makes even such a long book flow past very easily. This one, the second in the series, picks up not long after its predecessor ended, and is largely concerned with the fall-out from events in that book. Eva and Tren are trying to work out just what is going on, Llandr

I have made it clear both on twitter and on this site how much I really enjoyed Charlotte English's first book Draykon. I really felt that her first book was a great epic fantasy with some fantastic mystery elements in it, I even believe that people who have never tried out epic fantasy should do so with this book. My biggest concern with sequels is they are so hard to live up to the previous book if you feel in love

Things are getting clearer. Plenty more to be explained though.

I like this magic : the Draykons's and the Lokants's. New and original. Also, Kryas is a believable villain As for Llyandry, well, she still annoys me (although there's not much of her in this book). I only hope she'll get, say, mature eventually *shrug*

Charlotte English has done a fantastic job with her second book in the Draykon series. The first book featured two main points of view and an assortment of interesting ancillary characters. In Lokant, many more characters have points of view, and there are lots of new characters added, but since the reader is already familiar with the setting, this is decidedly a bonus. The action here is even more quickly paced and the stakes higher. The plot literally pulls you along.

Llandry is coming to terms

Like Draykon, Lokant kept my attention and kept me turning pages long into the night when I should have been asleep instead. There's much to love here, including a good deal more exposition than the first book which answers many of the questions raised. I especially enjoyed the characterization of Eva, as this book is split more evenly between her point of view and Llandry's, and we learn so much more about Lady Glostrum's motivations and character. I also appreciate how the romance scenes are a ...more

Much as I enjoyed the first book this one is not for me. I may have waited too long between books because the setting material and central mystery that kept me involved in the other book were missing here. This one is a straight romance and is not holding my interest.

This is the second book in the Draykon series and I absolutely loved the first. I’m just ashamed it’s taken me so long to get round to reading this one..

So we are back in the wonderful world of the Seven Realms and the troubles revolving around Llandry Sanfaer who discovered a mysterious stone which has caused so many problems. The Draykon are an ancient race long thought extinct.. not any more….

Charlotte builds perfectly on from the established characters and events of the first book but so muc

Llandry was learning that when two stubborn old men were placed into the same room together, their individual stubbornness not only doubled but increased tenfold

Draykon once again fly the skies of the Seven Realms. War is building. Llandry is being chased by a white-haired sorcerer while Eva is trying to find out how her own heritage ties into who the Lokants are and what they want. Will there be peace again in the Seven Realms, or will warring factions destroy what was once these quiet lands?

Lokant is the second book in the Draykon series. It follows directly on from where the first book, Draykon, left off. We get to know more about Llandry, the draykons and the relationship between Eva and Tren. But the mystery also deepens as well. There was some kind of link between Draykons and humanity in the past which is gradually revealed through the book and there is also a mystery surrounding a scheming sect which wants to get its hands on the Draykon bone (and Llandry) for some dark, as y

This book has an interesting plot behind it, but the actual scenes aren't gripping. I've thought hard about this and it's not because the writing is poor. She's a crisp writer with no wasted words and the characters are endearing and fun. But the great majority of the story is the characters taking about what's going on. The scenes when action dominates are gripping, but they come far and few between.

Key evidence: when a section ends I usually want to put the book down and do something else, rat

My favourite book of the month! Absolutely loved it..gripping from start to finish. I read a review somewhere saying these books had "barbie" plots, couldn't disagree more. I really really enjoyed this second book, It finishes exactly wear the first ends and really does tap in to your imagination. You understand allot more about the characters and find yourself being swept away in the mysteries. I love the growing relationship between Eva and Tren and really enjoy the sense of humour the author ...more

The sequel to the first book by new author Charlotte English (yes, she's my sister - no, that isn't why this book gets a good review...) Lokant continues the story started in Draykon, following the further adventures of Llandry Sanfaer, Eva Glostrum and a whole host of supporting characters, including the adorable Sigwide! The mystery thickens with the addition of the mysterious Lokants, who are meddlers on a grand degree. The writing is engaging and lively, the plot is intriguing and has some u ...more

"Lokant" by Charlotte English is the second installment to the Draykon series. Llandry becomes a Draykon, helps bring another back from the big sleep and begins to learn more about her heritage. The two major forms of magic start a merging trend that interests Lady Eva as well as others. Mankind starts taking a closer look at how the world became like it is. This book is layered, complicated and deep. Once you pick it up...you can't put it down. The author's writing style is eloquent, fluid and ...more

The plot is beginning to come together. Characters are beginning to show their position in the story and their views are becoming intertwined. As a reader I found it took a lot of necessary time to develop a mental image of the realms and keep them separated. The character transitions were well placed, and coherent, but this book needs to be read without gaps. Toward the end of this book the key characters are becoming more involved and being pulled together...but what can they do, what will the ...more

This is the second novel in the Draykon series, and continues shortly after the previous book left off. I love the unique set-up of the Draykon worlds, and the plot keeps me turning page after page, but probably my favourite thing about these books is the cast of believable, determined, flawed-yet-lovable characters. In Lokant we meet a number of intriguing new characters, and there are further adventures for old favourites. If you loved Draykon (book 1) half as much as I did, I think you'll fin ...more

intriguing developement in the plot from the first book. much more action and explanations of the chatacters, which was sorely needed. i particulary enjoy the character of eva, who is the polar opposite of the sniviling llandry.
fast paced read, beliveable immersion into a fantastc world, altogether a delightful romp.

I loved coming back to this world. I loved meeting old characters that I came to like and it was interesting to meet new ones.

Good as the first

I was pleased that this book was as good as I had hoped after reading the reviews. Looking forward to the next and last book in this series. It does leave you hanging. And I don't like that. I think it's a gimmick to sell more books. I miss completed stories.
