The exhilarating final book in the Otherworld Chronicles trilogy, which School Library Journal called "a surefire hit with the legions of Rick Riordan fans."

Artie Kingfisher, his sister, Kay, and the New Knights of the Round Table have finally reached the legendary isle of Avalon. But before Artie can take his place as King Arthur reborn, he must recover nothing less than the mythical Holy Grail. And as the greatest battle of his life looms, Artie finds himself facing off against the one person he never dreamed he'd be fighting.

In The Dragon King, Artie's life-changing quest comes to a spectacular close as the young king discovers what it truly means to be a hero. Rich in mythology and bursting with twenty-first-century fun, this high-spirited spin on Arthurian legend is perfect for middle grade fans of Percy Jackson, the Alex Rider Chronicles, and House of Secrets.

Back cover copy

The Seven Swords have been united, and Artie Kingfisher and his knights are ready to take their place at the Round Table. . . .

What began as a video game has become all too real for Artie Kingfisher. He has escaped the evil Lordess Morgaine, reclaimed Excalibur, and finally opened the gate to the legendary isle of Avalon, where he will take his rightful place as King Arthur reborn. Now Artie and his friends--each with a mythical sword in hand--are ready to become the new Knights of the Round Table. In Avalon they are safe, but their fight is far from over. . . .

Reeling from her defeat, Morgaine still plots to overthrow Artie and claim Excalibur as her own, while Merlin's blind quest for power grows wilder and more dangerous. In preparation for the greatest battle of his life, Artie must discover the secrets of an ancient and mysterious tool called Scarffern and recover nothing less than the mythical Holy Grail. And he may soon find that his final fight won't be against an enemy--but against someone who he used to call friend.

In this exhilarating final chapter of Otherworld Chronicles, Artie and his sister, Kay, will struggle for their right to return home, save their father and their friends, and of course rescue the worlds themselves. . . .
