*AUTHOR OF ONE OF BUZZFEED’S GREATEST FANTASY BOOKS OF 2013*
From the author of the beloved Society of Sword and Wolf of the North trilogies, Duncan M. Hamilton’s Knight of the Silver Circle –the sequel adventure-packed fantasy to Dragonslayer in The Dragonslayer trilogy–is perfect for fans of magical beasts and unexpected heroes
Three dragons wreak havoc throughout Mirabay–eating livestock, killing humans, and burning entire villages to ash. It was nearly impossible to kill one, using a legendary sword and the magic of the mysterious Cup; to tackle three, Guillot dal Villerauvais will need help.
The mage Solène fears having to kill again; she leaves Gill to gain greater control over her magic.
The Prince Bishop still wants Gill dead, but more than that, he wants the Cup, and he’ll do whatever he has to to get it, even sending his own daughter–a talented thief and assassin–into the dragons’ path.
As secrets mount on secrets and betrayals on betrayals, both Guillot and Solène face critical decisions that will settle not only their own fate but that of all Mirabaya.
“Betrayals, ritual magic, an enchanted relic, and lost histories. A charming narrative… entertaining. Recommended for fans of dragons and medieval settings.”—Library Journal on Dragonslayer
“Successfully mixes swords, sorcery, and skullduggery with complex characters. Dumas fans will especially appreciate the faux-French setting. This is pure adventure fun with plenty for epic fantasy readers to enjoy.”—Publishers Weekly on Dragonslayer
As the lines between enemy and ally blur, Guillot dal Villerauvais is drawn farther into the life and service he had left far behind. Solène attempts to come to terms with the great magical talent she fears is as much a curse as a blessing, while the Prince Bishop’s quest for power twists and turns, and takes on a life of its own.
With dragons to slay, and an enemy whose grip on the kingdom grows ever tighter, Gill and his comrades must fight to remain true to themselves, while standing at the precipice of a kingdom in peril.

Dragons have returned after a thousand years, but greater dangers lurk in the shadows…
Knight of the Silver Circle, by Duncan M. Hamilton is the next installment in highly anticipated, The Dragonslayer Trilogy. Guillot dal Villerauvais is drawn farther into the life and service he had left far behind. Solène attempts to come to terms with the great magical talent she fears is as much a curse as a blessing,
Knight of the Silver Circle is an incredible epic fantasy, the author delivers an atmospheric, stunning adventurous storyline, the pacing and execution is excellent. Wonderfully engaging with creative multiple POVs makes for an enjoyable read.
People in nearby towns are terrified, and one mayor has searched out Guillot to ask for help. It seems some of the dragon eggs have hatched and the babies are growing quickly. Amaury, the Prince Bishop, is still thirsting for for power and wrecking havoc through out kingdom. His character is more developed and refined in this book. All the characters become more fleshed out. The atmospheric fantasy world building is stellar. The plot line has some intriguing twist, with betrayals. Engaging political intrigue along with some key elements surface within the novel.
Hamilton leads the reader as the book progresses and really takes off on a spellbinding aventures tale.
A exceptional written fantasy novel, that I was completely immersed in. I completely unprepared for the ending, and can’t wait for the last book in this mind blowing fantasy series.
