Within a time of strife and unrest can an element of bravery, trust and faith be enough to successfully withstand the unknown that lie ahead?

In the year 1312, Thomas, an orphan, who is raised in an abbey from a young age, longs to claim the power which belonged only to the King. When Thomas is sent on a quest to the castle of Magnus along with three others, Thomas discovers each possesses their own well kept secrets. The kingdom must be conquered but there are many dangerous obstacles that will challenge the fortitude of the strongest. Is it possible to capture an area in unknown terrain against the many who loyally protect their territory or will the four be forever silenced?

From the start of the book the storyline offers a high adventure of action, chivalry, knights, swordplay and danger that will satisfy and keep the pages flying. The author has the ability to place the reader into the story themselves witnessing all that is happening around them. Secrets revealed, turns, well flowing dialogue, unexpected ending, and well developed characters keep the story alive with absolutely no dull parts. I was highly entertained and will recommend this faith inspiring, hard to put down book to others! Well written 5 stars!
