Excerpt

Excerpt from: Sir Kendrick & the Castle of Bel Lione (#01 in The Knights Of Arrethtrae Series)

Kingdom’s Heart
An Introduction to the Knights of Arrethtrae

Like raindrops on a still summer’s eve, the words of a story can oft fall grayly upon the ears of a disinterested soul. I am Cedric of Chessington, humble servant of the Prince, and should my inadequate telling of the tales of these brave knights e’er sound as such, know that it is I who have failed and not the gallant hearts of those of whom I write, for their journeys into darkened lands to save the lives of hopeless people deserve a legacy I could never aspire to pen with appropriate skill.

These men and women of princely mettle risked their very lives and endured the pounding of countless battles to deliver the message of hope and life to the far reaches of the kingdom of Arrethtrae…even to those regions over which Lucius, the Dark Knight, had gained complete dominion through the strongholds of his Shadow Warriors.

What is this hope they bring? To tell it requires another story, much of it chronicled upon previous parchments, yet worthy of much retelling. Listen then, to the tale of a great King who ruled the Kingdom Across the Sea, along with His Son and their gallant and mighty force of Silent Warriors.

A ruler of great power, justice, and mercy, this King sought to establish His rule in the land of Arrethtrae. To this end He chose a pure young man named Peyton and his wife, Dinan, to govern the land. All was well in Arrethtrae until the rebellion…for there came a time when the King’s first and most powerful Silent Warrior, Lucius by name, drew a third of the warriors with him in an attempt to overthrow the Kingdom Across the Sea.

A great battle raged in the kingdom until finally the King’s forces prevailed. Cast out of the kingdom…and consumed with hatred and revenge…Lucius, known also as the Dark Knight now brought his rebellion to the land of Arrethtrae, overthrowing Peyton and Dinan and bringing great turmoil to the land.

But the King did not forget His people in Arrethtrae. He established the order of the Noble Knights to protect them until the day they would be delivered from the clutches of the Dark Knight. The great city of
Chessington served as a tower of promise and hope in the darkened lands of Arrethtrae.

For many years and through great adversity, the Noble Knights persevered, waiting for the King’s promised Deliverer. Even the noblest of hearts can be corrupted, however, and long waiting can dim the brightest hope. Thus, through the years, the Noble Knights grew selfish and greedy. Worse, they forgot the very nature of their charge.

For when the King sent His only Son, the Prince, to prepare His people for battle against Lucius—the Noble Knights knew Him not, nor did they heed His call to arms. When He condemned their selfish ways, they mocked and disregarded Him. When He began to train a force of commoners—for He was a true master of the sword—they plotted against Him.

Then the Noble Knights, claiming to act in the great King’s name, captured and killed His very own Son. What a dark day that was! Lucius and his evil minions—Shadow Warriors—reveled in this apparent victory.

But all was not lost. For when the hope of the kingdom seemed to vanish and the hearts of the humble despaired, the King used the power of the Life Spice to raise His Son from the dead.

This is a mysterious tale, indeed, but a true one. For the Prince was seen by many before He returned to His Father across the Great Sea. And to those who loved and followed Him—myself among them—He left a promise and a charge.

Here then is the promise: the Prince will come again to take all who believe in Him home to the Kingdom Across the Sea. And this is the charge: those who love Him must travel to the far reaches of the kingdom of Arrethtrae, tell all people of Him and His imminent return, and wage war against Lucius and his Shadow Warriors.

Thus we wait in expectation. And while we wait, we fight against evil and battle to save the souls of many from darkness. We are the knights who live and die in loyal service to the King and the Prince. Though not perfect in our call to royal duty, we know the power of the Prince resonates in our swords, and the rubble of a thousand strongholds testifies to our strength of heart and soul.

There are many warriors in this land of Arrethtrae, many knights who serve many masters. But the knights of which I write are my brethren, the Knights of the Prince. They are mighty because they serve a mighty King and His Son. They are…the Knights of Arrethtrae!

Highly Recomended
5 stars By Racheal, Dec 10 2017
I started this series after two friends had raved about how much their children were enjoying them. And I've been very impressed. Chuck Black writes beautifully. He has excellent character development, captivating stories, and also weaves spiritual truths right throughout the books to get the reader thinking. They're aimed at young adults, but we've been reading them aloud as a family to our 7-12 year old children, and sometimes the 5 year old even listens in, and they all love it. My 10 year old son, who doesn't like reading much himself, is often the one begging me to read more of 'the knight books." 
Sir Kendrick is the first of this series, and is a tale of courage and loyalty to the Prince.

a portrayal of the battles going on inside and around us all the time. The Knights of Arrethtrae series sort of showed me what I was up against in a way I could see, and almost feel. A great read is behind each cover!

A Great Book
5 stars By Timothy, Nov 17 2012
"Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione", by Chuck Black, is one of the best books I have ever read.  It tell about a knight, whose name is Sir Kendrick, who is mentoring another knight named Sir Duncan.  They are loyal to the King and his son.  It tells of how they are assigned to go on a mission to find a Vincero Knight whose mind is set on evil.  It tells of how they go to a castle and how Sir Duncan ends up in trouble.  It tells how Sir Kendrick tries to find a man to save Sir Duncan, but finds himself locked in a deadly duel!

I recommend this book to people who love adventure, medieval knights and castles, small skirmishes and big battles.  I also recommend it to those who like allegory as many of the people and events represent Biblical people and happenings.  I really think people should read this book because it is so awesome!
