by Chuck Black
Price: $9.99.
Published by: Waterbrook Multnomah


When looking at books for the young adult in your life, I’d love for you to check out Chuck Black’s Knights of Arrethae Series.Chuck BlackChuck Black


I read Book 2 (and reviewed) and 4 and really enjoyed them. I missed 1 & 3 somehow and need to remedy that as soon as possible. Now come books 5 Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor and 6 Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest.


Here’s what each title is about:


Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor


Sir Quinlan leaves his boyhood friend to serve the Prince, fighting a battle darker and more intense than any he's ever known. The mysterious Sir Baylor recruits him into the ranks of an elite unit of knights known as the Swords of Valor, but when tragedy strikes and everyone blames Quinlan, the Swords of Valor disband, ending a legacy of heroic deeds.

Alone and despairing, Quinlan wanders the kingdom, fleeing his past. His providential encounter with Taras, a mysterious Silent Warrior and former trainer of Valor Knights, offers Quinlan a chance to redeem himself and learn the ways of the secret warriors.

The training is grueling, and just when Quinlan seems to have left his failures behind, he receives an impossible challenge from the Prince-one that will force him to face his past.and the mighty men who blame him for the tragedy that ruined them. Can Quinlan reunite the Valor Knights in time to save the people from the Dark Knight's evil plot to rule the Kingdom of Arrethtrae, or will the Valor Knights lose the most important battle of all?


Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest


Sir Rowan is the most decorated tournament knight in Cameria, but when he is attacked and left for dead, his world collapses. Betrayed and lingering at death's door, only a bizarre vision of his Prince and the help of a woman dedicated to the King keeps him alive. As Rowan heals, he finds new purpose in life through service to his King. But his beloved land of Cameria has fallen victim to the tyranny of the Dark Knight.

Rowan's countrymen need his help taking their cities back from the enemy, but all is not as it appears. The mysterious Sir Lijah insists Rowan's purpose lies elsewhere-far away from Cameria, in an ancient city and for an ancient cause. Rowan's destiny is greater than he ever imagined. The final battle with the Dark Knight approaches, and he must choose where he will fight. Will he discover his true identity and purpose as a Knight of the Prince, or will the Dark Knight claim victory for eternity?


Really, how exciting do those books sound? Our kids have vivid imaginations and author Chuck Black takes them to a time and place they could only imagine.


I think if you have a child, especially a boy who struggles with reading, this might be a great series to try out on him. There’s sword fighting, good guys vs bad, etc. All the elements to draw a boy in! My oldest son is 11 and I think I’ll be introducing him to these books in the next couple of years.


Yes, there is a bit of romance, but not overly so. I also want to let you know that these are Christian Fiction novels. And let me just say for the record that if you haven’t read Christian Fiction before or it’s been a while, you might want to start with Young Adult (YA) novels.


Many of the book reviewers I know online have absolutely loved the genre!
