The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King - The Literary Phoenix
The Eyes of the Dragon feels like a story that belongs in the ancient histories of Midworld.That is to say... if you've read the Dark Tower series, King's voice is familiar here. He uses terms like "baronies" which I've never heard in other fantasy novels. There is a Roland (our Roland Deschain's namesake in his own world, perhaps? Or a coincidence?) and there is a wicked court magician named "Flagg".
