Abstract:
Odo and Eleanor are excited to be knights. Only, nobody's asking them to go on a quest. So they're stuck at home, using their trusty and talkative swords to defend their village when there's cause for defence. But mostly it's just waiting for something bigger to come along. That 'something bigger' comes to them in the form of an old man named Edga, a warrior named Hundred, and an ancient chant: Dragon, dragon, heed our call. Come to aid us, one and all. Odo, Eleanor, and their swords, Biter and Runnel, are plunged into a quest that will take them (as all good quests must) to unfamiliar lands, where they will fight unseen enemies and unlock unbelievable secrets in order to prevent an unbearable impostor from taking the crown. Also, they will need to keep an eye out for dragons.

Summary

Summary

New York Times bestselling authors Garth Nix and Sean Williams bring readers another action-packed tale of two kid knights and their talking swords.

Sir Odo and Sir Eleanor still think of themselves as unlikely knights. But when their kingdom is threatened by forces of significant nefariousness, they and their talking swords join a bold quest to rescue a monarch, vanquish deadly beasts, confound a prophecy, and (if they're lucky) avoid stepping on the tail of a very powerful dragon.
