Synopsis: A city under siege. A halfling knight. One Epik Quest.
Epik thought he had found what he was looking for – magic, adventure. He saved an entire kingdom. But at what cost?
Without his mentor, Gabby, learning magic seems an impossible feat. And becoming a knight is proving harder than he ever expected.
Once again, the city is under attack. A new enemy rises, undermining the ten years of peace and prosperity promised to Dune All-En. Epik must heed the call. He and his usual band of misfit souls – Todder, Myra, and Gerdy – quest across the realm. But what they find in King’s Way shakes them to the core. A kingdom supposed to be seething with dark magic seems oddly vacant of much magic at all.

Knowing is Halfling the Battle was such a fun read! It had magic, humor, knights, and jousting! It was light-hearted and very well written! Epik’s journey became more intriguing, secrets were revealed, and danger lurked around every corner!
I definitely enjoyed it more than the first one. It had plenty of comedy to keep me laughing and a big adventure to keep me turning the pages. I loved the carry over from book 1 and how the author seamlessly reminded me of those events while keeping the pace of the story flowing.
I found Epik’s journey of self discovery to be very telling of his brave character. I loved Gerdy’s point of view because I got to see her feistiness really come through. And, I enjoyed meeting new characters, like Kavya, and catching up with old characters, like Todder.
The story was wild and unpredictable. It had plenty of intrigue to go around with mysterious happenings throughout the kingdom, an impending battle on the horizon, missing children, and magic afoot. It was full of fantasy and fun. It reminded me of all the fun I have when I go to the Renaissance Festival, and I finished it in one sitting! 4.5 stars!
Thank you to the author for sending me this free e-copy in exchange for my honest review!
