Legends of Dragonrealm II is a collection of novels and a novella: Shadow Steed, The Shrouded Realm, Children of the Drake, and finally Skins. To do the piece as whole justice I will try to touch on each story, but in reality, it is such an impossible task. If you are unfamiliar with Richard Knaak’s Dragonrealm series, I will heed you to start with Dragonrealm, working your way forward from there. If not then you may find yourself confused.

Shadow Steed
This tale brings us to one of Shade’s end as we pay witness to the downfall and uncover who he truly is, or err was. Whether or not it is the final end is unknown. This is due to not having finished the series. It brings us the heart of adventure, impending battles, and of course love. Intertwined are deception, friendship, magic, and of course the beloved Darkhorse of the Void.

The Shrouded Realm
This tale whisks us back in time to the Vraad world of Nimth. Here we meet Dru Zeree, and the foundation for the story that follows. In this story, we get to throw ourselves into the chaos as the Vraad and the dragon race Tezrenee try to cross over to the Shrouded Realm, also known as Dragonrealm.

Children of the Drake
The Tezrenee clan is at it again. Lord Barakas cooks up his most devious plan yet 15 years after the final crossing of the Vraad people. He had a vision once of ruling all of Dragonrealm, and with Darkhorse’s return, he can finally see the fruitfulness of his people. Devising a plan, the elder kidnaps the daughter of Dru Zeree and Darkhorse, using them against one another to do his bidding…But much is a miss as sickness begins to claim the Tezrenee clan, one by one, they begin to twist into a new race.

Skins
This is a novella, and the final book included in this volume of Dragonrealm II. It introduces us to a new character, a blue drake, who is attempting to hunt the wolf raiders. He and his comrades embark on something else altogether, it is a terrifying and gruesome battle for both survival and wits. Who will win in the end, and will they do so with their skins still attached?

I loved each tale as it brings you closer and more intimate with Dragonrealm itself along with the characters that grace each page. The writing style is one I have come to love, and it should surprise no one that I am a huge fan of Richard Knaak. It is more than a story when he writes. Instead he makes you a bystander in the story, you feel as the characters feel.

I always say that this is epic fantasy at its best. I say the same for Dragonrealm II. You get tossed into the fray, and live out the story as the characters do. That is just beyond awesome.
