The story drew me in from page 1. How could I resist Arthurian literature? The story follows Una, a young girl whose home has been seized and destroyed by a dragon, and George, a knight sent on a self-redeeming mission. Along the way they encounter much evil and learn a great deal about themselves and each other. The author has spun a masterful tale and laid the groundwork for a wonderful series.

Knight Rising is an excellent adventure with magic, a dragon, horrific otherworldly creatures, battles between good and evil and, of course, knights. The world is well-described and the characters came to life as I read as quickly as possible. This is the first book in the series and I am definitely anxious to read the next. I highly recommend it and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A very engrossing tale that takes many twists and turns. The Red Cross Knight and Una are very unlikely traveling companions. Their course is manipulated by others and never seems to go as it should. I really enjoyed this tale and look forward to more of their adventures.

I thoroughly enjoyed Knight Rising! It’s a YA Arthurian Fantasy that has all the elements of a great story! There’s magic and faeries, dragons and hideous beasts, and the forces of good must rise up against a decidedly evil foe. This book follows Una and George who are on a quest to slay the dragon that has taken over Castle Silene. They face many dangers along the way and learn a lot about themselves as well. There’s plenty of action and adventure and I really just loved the story! One of my fa ...more

From the first few chapters, I thought this book was going to be a typical YA fantasy and oh boy, was I wrong. This book kept getting better and better.

Una was a great and badass character that was very fun to follow. All the characters were nicely developt and I liked that all of them had their flaws. Even though the book had a lot to do with the good fighting the evil both sides weren't completely black and white. I liked that Una wasn't the ultimate good character trying to save the world.

I loved it! Absolutely brilliant! The story drew me in from the very start. Set in Arthurian England, the story follows a young girl - Una and a flawed but noble knight on a journey back to the girl's childhood home - a castle currently inhabited by a dragon. Una is searching for her missing parents and the knight wants to make a name for himself by slaying the dragon. Along the way, they get drawn into a fight against an evil far more sinister than any dragon. I want to say so much more but I d ...more

This was a fun read! It’s young adult genre, which I typically don’t read, but I couldn't pass up the mention of an Arthurian legend.

I enjoyed the fresh take on familiar characters. Vivian to the rescue, with a sword! The story is light on traditional Arthurian legend but it’s set within the time frame. It’s a nicely paced, enjoyable adventure and the best’s only book one of a series!

If you read young adult, fantasy or Arthurian legends, there is something in this story for you.

Knight Rising is Book 1 of the Faerie Queen series. Jason Hamilton gives us a superbly written story with an amazing storyline and characters that are extremely well developed with realistic personalities, especially our two main characters -- Una and Sir George. Una is joined on her quest for revenge on the dragon who killed her family by Sir George, a knight, who is on his own mission to kill the same dragon. This is a fantastic tale which I highly recommend. Loved this story and am anxious fo ...more

Knight Rising
The Faerie Queen book 1

Jason Hamilton

Una, a princess whose castle home was taken by a dragon, Arthur Penndragon of Sword in the stone fame, Gloriana, the Faerie Queen, Duessa, a sorceress and mistress of the Other, George, a knight, and various dreadful monsters make up the characters in the start of this series of books.
This was an exciting well written book. Future books should be just as good. I look forward to reading them.
