As Luik discovers his true history, his friends Anorra, Brax, and the rest of the Dibor stay together as they find the secret behind the Lion Vrie?
The Lion Vrie is better than the first! It is more interesting, and more capturful(not sure that?s a word) I highly recommend it, and if any of you are lovers of fantasy, then you?ll probably like this.

The Lion Vrie, written by Christopher Hopper, is the second in the White Lion Chronicles. It is an allegorical christian fantasy fiction that contains many moral developments.
It takes place after the great battle which submitted most of Dionia to Morgui?s control. Luik is taken to Mount Dakka, a mountain fortress, to recover. After he has healed, he sets out to Ariel?s now barren ruins to search for the missing Dibor. There, he instead finds Anorra, and they return to Mt. Dakka. At that point, he organizes the inhabitants to fortify the city further to prevent Morgui?s destruction to continue. Luik receives a mysterious summons to the city of Ot, and he and Anorra embark on a quest to find the city, as well as the Knights of the Lion, the Lion Vrie, which may be Dionia?s only hope in defeating Morgui.
The book is written much better than the first. Although the book is a bit slow, there are some very interesting morals being introduced all throughout the story. The use of Dionian language is reduced quite nicely, eliminating much confusion. Morals discussed are friendship, loyalty, honesty, honor, and all the other frequent morals of a medieval society.

Disaster every where?
After reading Rise of the Dibor I didn?t really think I would like Lion Vrie? Well I was wrong, Lion Vrie is an original story about the Dibor, Fane, The Dwarves of Ot, Annora, the Lion Vrie, and The Almighty.
In the sequel to Rise of the Dibor, life is grim?
Morgui has won the battle, Athera?s men are fleeing, women and children are missing, friends have fallen or are missing, Ragnar is dead and it seems as if the Lion Vrie and The Almighty has turned their backs on the people of Athera.
Who will lead? Who is alive? Where to go? Who to trust? Does Ot have the answers? Where is The Almighty? What is Morgui up to?
This book had a good pace through out, the plot was good and fairly original, and of course Christopher Hopper created an epic and awesome world. It was so good that I felt as though Christopher Hopper wanted to show off his world in this book. There was a lot of travel and discovering of new things.
There was one downfall to the book. I?m sure I?m in the minority here but I don?t like romance. Whenever Luik and Annora were in the same room I would most likely stop and roll my eyes at all the romance. It was just to much romance.
Over all this was a great read that I will be re-reading when I get the chance.
