The 6th book in the Knights of Arrethtrae, Sir Rowan is a wonderful addition to the series! I give 5 stars to this action-packed and suspenseful book!

The story of Rowan - a man who learned the skills of the sword just so he could compete in tournaments, was very thought-provoking (as are all of Black's books). Many people today say they are doing or learning something to bring glory to God - but often it's only for their own glory and fame.

Sir Rowan's story was dull of twist and turns that I wasn't expecting. Just when you think you know where the story is going, it takes a turn and your left wondering how Rowan can get out of it, or how any good could come out of the dreadful calamity that befalls him.

I found myself chuckling at the amusing parts, and crying when someone so dear was lost. As Chuck Black accurately shows through this book, answering the Kings call isn't always easy, and doesn't bring fame or fortune. But those who the King calls are blessed beyond measure in the happiness promised them once they fulfill the Princes mission.

Even thought we often don't understand why bad things happen to us or why a loved one was taken from us, we can rest in the knowledge that everything is done for a reason and our rewards on heaven will be worth every painful moment here on earth. Such is the lesson you learn when you read about Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest.
