He plans to set off with Sir Baylor and join the Swords of Valor. During a horrible battle with the evil Shadow Warriors, Sir Baylor is killed. Because of a mistake made by Sir Quinlan, the other Knights blame him for this tragedy and the Swords of Valor are disbanded. Sir Quinlan wanders the kingdom until he meets Taras a Silent Warriorand former trainer of Valor Knights. After a grueling time of training, The Prince speaks to Sir Quinlan and he decides to get the Valor Knights to come together and fight the Dark Knight and his evil cohorts who plan to take over the Kingdom of Arretthtrae.
This is a really good story of knights and the traditional good and evil battle that everyone faces every day. This book is part of a series of stories for young teens and pre-teens. I definitely enjoyed reading this book and know that young people who like adventure and knights will love this book and enjoy the story that does teach about what strenght we find when we band together and inspire others to overcome apathy. There is always strength in numbers especially when the numbers are people of valor and truth.
