In a medieval land where dinosaurs still roam, Henry is destined to be more than a stable boy.... Henry Fairchild, a common stable boy at the start of the story, has a unique understanding of dinosaurs. After learning of a rampaging T-Rex, Henry takes it upon himself to try and save Lord Harding and Lady Anwyn by taming the beast. Due to his heroic behaviour, Lady Anwyn invites Henry to join the Dino Knights, the land's strong warriors and protectors. However, becoming a Dino Knight is full of challenges. Dino Knights: Panterra in Peril follows Henry's journey to becoming a brave warrior.
Dino Knights is an exciting new series with themes of bravery, friendship and self-belief. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is fast-paced and packed full of action and adventure. Fans of the How To Train Your Dragon series will enjoy this.
