Juvenile Fiction - Historical - Medieval
Told from the perspective of Cedric of Chessington, Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor, is filled with knights, good and evil, and mystical creatures.
Quinlan, better known to his friends as Twitch (facial tic), is drawn further into the world of the Knights of the Prince, while his close friend Tav, draws away. Sir Baylor from the Swords of Valor Knights, Tav’s uncle, comes and Quinlan is chosen to go with him. When tragedy strikes the knights disband and Quinlan spends time wandering the kingdom. He meets a Silent Warrior, Taras, who helps him train in hopes that the Swords of the Valor Knights can rejoin and fight against the Dark Knight and his knights. Will Quinlan succeed? Read the book!
My thoughts- Would I recommend? Yes. I recommend this book to teens and also to adults, as the reader can learn about apathy through the use of allegory. Tav and Quinlan truly represent us as Christians and how we should join and be a part of the Prince’s army, by not just saying we are Christians, but truly being Christians.
My favorite part was when Taras tells Quinlan two lessons, “know who you are” and “know who you want to become.” I thought it was also important when Taras said, “The Prince sees you for not who you think you are, but for who He knows you are” These two lessons and what the Prince sees in us are very important for those who are apathetic.
I plan on acquiring the books in this series and the Kingdom Series, because I plan on using them as a teaching tool for my children.
