Summary

The exhilarating final book in the Otherworld Chronicles trilogy, which School Library Journal called "a surefire hit with the legions of Rick Riordan fans."

Artie Kingfisher, his sister, Kay, and the New Knights of the Round Table have finally reached the legendary isle of Avalon. But before Artie can take his place as King Arthur reborn, he must recover nothing less than the mythical Holy Grail. And as the greatest battle of his life looms, Artie finds himself facing off against the one person he never dreamed he'd be fighting.

In The Dragon King, Artie's life-changing quest comes to a spectacular close as the young king discovers what it truly means to be a hero. Rich in mythology and bursting with twenty-first-century fun, this high-spirited spin on Arthurian legend is perfect for middle grade fans of Percy Jackson, the Alex Rider Chronicles, and House of Secrets.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Otherworld Chronicles trilogy sails to a well-crafted close on a brisk tide of challenging quests, stunning revelations, and marshaling of rival forces. King Arthur clone Artie Kingfisher acquires the Holy Grail at last. Enlisting the world's remaining dragons to face half-demon Merlin and his armies of chimerical Questing Beasts and hypnotized video gamers, Artie marches to battle. As in previous episodes, the author expertly stirs earnest and not-quite-so-earnest elements into a Percy Jackson-style epic in which the fate of both the mundane and the magical world depend on the courage and leadership of a seemingly ordinary preteen.--Peters, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"
