Two friends face the Dark Knight’s deadliest scheme, but only one knight has the courage to overcome.
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?
We have long been fans of Chuck Black in our house. We have read the entire Kingdom Dawn Series (several times) and bought the audio books as well! We have started on the Knights of Arrethtrae series. They do not disappoint. These books are for around ages 12 and up although we have had our younger children listen in. We have just had to explain some things or stop and talk about things that are difficult to understand for them.
Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor follows along in the series and catches the reader up in the world of Arrethtrae. You find yourself drawn in and needing to follow the story through to the end. This book is a must have for family read alouds! This book is number five in the Knights of Arrethtrae series so you might want to start with number one and work your way through them. You'll be glad you did.
Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor is an allegorical book that will have your family discussing deep things for a long time. The intricate way the story is written is engaging and fun. Who doesn't like to read about knights? You can easily see the Biblical outline in these stories. I highly recommend them all!
