The Eyes of the Dragon is a gem among Stephen King's expansive body of work. In one of his first forays outside of the horror genre, King weaves an intricate fantasy tale complete with dragons, evil magicians, and devilish plots. Though this book marks a change in genre for the King of Horror, "The Eyes of the Dragon" features the author's well-known complex storytelling adapted to a more light-hearted tone. King narrates in a storybook style that makes the reader feel as if they are curled up by the fire on a cold winter night, which makes for a very enjoyable and quick read. Recommended for King fans looking to delve into his lesser known works, or for non-horror fans who want to experience Stephen King's masterful writing without too much of a fright.
After Flagg, the evil court magician, sees a mouse chance upon a grain of dragon sand behind Prince Peter's shelves and die--as did the king--in fire and smoke, he plots to imprison Peter in the Needle and seize control of the kingdom. Reissue.
