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?
I think this is a great book for teens and tweens and one of the things I like about it is that you don't need to read them in a certain order, it's not like you'll get lost if you read one first and the other.
I handed the book over to my daughter who is 11 years old and she loved it, she was kept interested, she thought the book was fun and she enjoyed the characters and the story.
This book is written in such a way that it not only captivates the young mind, but even a mom of two. It talks about life lessons and it encourages us to use the gifts we are given by God.
