The King’s Dragon (Three Thieves)
This graphic novel is the fourth book in the Three Thieves series. I haven’t read the others, but I was still able to jump right into the story. I really was first interested in the title, and was expecting the King’s Dragon to be an actual dragon. But there’s no dragons, or even a king! At least not since the king died and his daughter took over as queen. Captain Drake’s memories are brought up to help capture the three thieves, but really it’s telling about how they’re all in a monastery and almost catch one of the thieves. The present time parts are done in color, and the memories are in classic black and white.
Captain Drake’s memories are the pieces to a puzzle, but will he have the imagination to see how they all go together? Of course, since I haven’t read the first books, I don’t know if Captain Drake’s memories were part of the earlier books, or how much I should know about the three thieves from the earlier stories. But now I mostly just want to know when the next book comes out. Read it! It’s a great story!
