I absolutely love this series. It is much fun and educational. If you are an adult looking for a good book to read to your kids so they can learn a little Bible, this is a great choice.

This series tells the story of the Bible in a medieval fashion. It is so cool. The knights are the Knights of the Prince and they represent Christians fighting for what they believe. The first book, Kingdom’s Dawn, is about the beginning and goes all the way up to Moses. And this is where I have to warn you. This is a story about the Bible; there are going to be some serious things, but I still think this is a great book for kids. There are parts with sword fighting, slavery (like in the Bible), and there is war. But this series was made for kids and I think this would be an awesome book where the whole family could read together. I don’t believe this is an inappropriate story for children, but I did have to mention the violence.

Overall, I love this series. I am reading the second one right now and I am having a lot of fun. So, if you’re looking for a book for the family that may not be as long as Narnia, this is a good choice. Hope you liked my review. -The Tiger Reader

He’s just a young man, but that doesn’t change the truth.

He was chosen…

Sixteen-year-old Leinad thought he was a common farmer’s son, nothing more. He wondered why his father had trained him for years to master the sword—not exactly a tool of the trade for farmers—but one tragic event initiates a world of revelation.

Only then does he begin to understand his calling—a calling no other man in the entire kingdom of Arrethtrae can fulfill—a calling given him by the King himself.

Teamed with a young slave girl, Leinad is thrust into adversity and danger—for the Dark Knight and his vicious Shadow Warriors will stop at nothing to thwart the King’s plan to restore the kingdom. Leinad will need more than a sharp blade and a swift hand to fulfill his mission and survive the evil plots of the King’s sworn enemies!

Journey to Arrethtrae, where the King and His Son implement a bold plan to save their kingdom; where courage, faith, and loyalty stand tall in the face of opposition; where good will not bow to evil—and the future of a kingdom lies in the hands of a young man.
