Have Sword, Will Travel – Garth Nix & Sean Williams (9+)

3 1/2 stars

‘”Now you are a knight,” said the sword. “All is properly in order.”’

Have Sword, Will Travel is a new humorous book written by Garth Nix and Sean Williams. It is the first book in a series.

When Odo and Eleanor come across and enchanted sword, Odo becomes a knight and Eleanor his squire! Very soon the two children and sword depart on a noble quest to unblock the river and defeat the mighty dragon Quenwulf. However, along the way, thy find an even bigger enemy. Does Odo really have what it takes to be a true knight?

Have Sword, Will Travel wasn’t one of my favourite books, but it has an engaging plot and some interesting twists. The world in the book is very fantastical and has dragons and knights. It gets straight into the action though, so if the book is your taste, it should appeal to you straight away. You will love this book if you enjoy reading books that involve dragons, knights, talking swords and adventures.

This book was pretty good and is perfect for readers who like Narnia. I hope that if you do read this book you really enjoy it.
