Series: Knight and Rogue #1
Published by HarperTeen on August 28th 2007
Need a hero?
You've got one in Sir Michael Sevenson. Although there hasn't been a knight errant in over two hundred years, this young noble has decided to revive the trade. He's found himself a reluctant partner in Fisk, a clever rogue who has been given the choice of serving as Sir Michael's squire or going to jail for a very long time. Now Michael and Fisk are on a quest to right wrongs, protect the innocent, and make the world a happier place.
It's not going to be easy. On their first attempt at rescuing a damsel in distress, they break a lady out of a tower, only to discover she was there for good reason: awaiting trial for poisoning her husband. Now the would-be heroes must find Lady Ceciel and return her to justice or be condemned themselves.
The Last Knight is told by two different narrators, Sir Michael and his squire Fisk. I don't know that I've actually read a book where there were two male narrators, so it took me a while to get into the heads of these characters. When I did, I felt like I knew these two characters very well by the end of this book.
Characters aside, this book has a fantastic plot filled with some humorous situations. Sir Michael is a bit naive and is shown as such right off. This makes for some interesting dilemmas when him and Fisk face certain dangers and crimps in their original plans. I felt like this book had some great twists and definitely will be looking into reading the rest of the series.
