The Lion Vrie by Christopher Hopper
If Rise of the Dibor was good, The Lion Vrie was awesome. Christopher Hopper certainly knows how to get the characters emotions across to the reader. Answering questions left by The White Lion Chronicles #1 (Rise of the Dibor), The Lion Vrie continues a few days after the ending of its prequel. The Dibor is scattered, injured, and wounded emotionally after the battle at Adriel. Luik is wounded but slowly recovering in the city of Mt. Dakka in Tontha, the homeland of Brax, Boran, and Benigan (three of his Dibor). Upon his recovery he knows that Morgui is still plotting the destruction of Dionia and it’s imperative that the city prepare for anything. Searching for Anorra, storing food, organizing and fortifying to the city take up most of Luik’s time, that is, until he called to Ot. Yes, the mysterious Ot. And so the quests begin. Read about Luik and his friends as they go through joy and pain, hope and despair, and experience weight of being leaders.
