Dungeons and Dragons Honor Among Thieves: The Deluxe Junior Novelization adapted by David Lewman

Library Catalog: Print

Edgin Darvis and Holga have made their way back to their daughter Kira, but in doing so they find out that yesterday’s friends have become today’s enemies! Can they find new allies and overcome all the obstacles in their way to defeat evil and save the day?

Lewman has written an engaging version of the Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves movie for a younger audience. He added extra context for spells, locations and other lesser-known D&D references. The humor, action and emotional journeys of the movie still shine through, and any younger reader may find themselves more interested in the D&D universe when they’re finished – whether they want to learn more about the setting, play the game themselves, or maybe watch the movie.

The Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves movie is fantastic, but also rated PG-13 for a reason, so I’d suggest parents either watch the movies themselves first or read up on it before showing it to their younger children. However, if you and your children are comfortable watching it after doing your research, this is definitely a movie that a whole range of ages can enjoy – whether or not you play D&D!
