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.

    " I was pleasantly surprised with the writing of this book. It was not overly simple but had good organization and plot development. It has strong biblical imagery throughout and exalts biblical morals without making the characters perfect and without weakness. "

    " This book just wasn't for me. It felt wooden with references to biblical characters, events, and theology so obvious that it lacked depth. It could have been good, as the Passages series by Paul McCusker was good, but it just fell flat. If the story had brought new insight for me into the character of God I might have rated it higher, but The King in this story was wooden as well. Actually, I thought the plot was boring too. I know there are a lot of people who really like these books, and I can see why. I hope they aren't too disappointed by my review (sorry Andi!)... this story just wasn't meant for me. "

    " I can't help it-- these weren't my favorite books, and I'll tell you why. Even though I love the concept of using a story as an allegory to the Bible (like C.S. Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia), I couldn't get passed how literal Chuck Black's retelling was. Even the main character's name, Leinad, is Daniel spelled backwards. One of his primary enemies was Fairos (Pharaoh) and plenty of the dialogue was ripped straight from Bible passages ("Let my people go!"). I needed more subtlety and finesse to truly enjoy the books, which I thought had a lot of potential. The upside is, these are great for kids because they're completely clean and obviously deliver a great moral message! Will be passing them on to my daughter. :) "

    " It was a very good allegory for the OT and has helpful discussion questions at the end to make you think about the symbolism. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series "
