The Dragon’s Pawn is only the beginning. Our characters receive the opportunity to not only play their game of “Warriors and Thieves,” but get the chance to enter the game and become their favorite characters. Getting into the game was the dream of a lifetime; getting out was the nightmare no one ever anticipated.

Great YA fantasy that is more than just a story.
Mr. Karnes’ story “The Dragon’s Pawn” is a continuation (many years later) of “The Pact” but now the role playing game takes on greater importance as Scott, Christ, Luke, and Paul enter into the game themselves and play through their own characters that they had created in the first book. The story was slow at the beginning, and some of the descriptions were sparse at times. Also some of the characterizations were shallow, but it was the poor editing that was the most distracting. Overall, I found it to be a very good story with a lot of action. I love the spiritual insights the most. I wish that I could give it 5 stars because I liked it that much. Nonetheless, I highly recommend it to Young Adults particularly who love role playing games and/or fantasy.

Glad I bought books one and two at the same time cause I couldn’t wait to start this book after finishing the first one in the series. The
excitement starts out fast. This is a great story within a story and both story lines will arouse your curiosity in a way that keeps you from putting the book down till you finish it.

I have just finished reading The Dragon’s Pawn. Book 2 of the Canaanshade Journeys. It is full of mystery, suspense, and adventure. I could not stop reading. I highly recommend it.

“The Dragon’s Pawn”, the 2nd book in the series plays so well off book #1 “The Pact” … The story continues almost seamlessly and keeps building the excitement started in book one … Each chapter keeps me wanting to immediately read the next … I absolutely love the direction that I at least think the story line is going … Mitchell is a gifted and intriguing writer and I can’t wait for next book.

This is the 2nd book of the Canaanshade series and I could not put it down! Excellent job of tying the first book, The Pack, into this one. These guys have been through so much together in the past and bring the love/hate relationship into this one! Great job and can hardly wait for the next one! 5 Stars
