About Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor

Two friends face the Dark Knight’s deadliest scheme, but only one knight has the courage to overcome.

Sir Quinlan leaves his boyhood friend to serve the Prince, fighting a battle darker and more intense than any he’s ever known. The mysterious Sir Baylor recruits him into the ranks of an elite unit of knights known as the Swords of Valor, but when tragedy strikes and everyone blames Quinlan, the Swords of Valor disband, ending a legacy of heroic deeds.

Alone and despairing, Quinlan wanders the kingdom, fleeing his past. His providential encounter with Taras, a mysterious Silent Warrior and former trainer of Valor Knights, offers Quinlan a chance to redeem himself and learn the ways of the secret warriors.

The training is grueling, and just when Quinlan seems to have left his failures behind, he receives an impossible challenge from the Prince—one that will force him to face his past…and the mighty men who blame him for the tragedy that ruined them.

Can Quinlan reunite the Valor Knights in time to save the people from the Dark Knight’s evil plot to rule the Kingdom of Arrethtrae, or will the Valor Knights lose the most important battle of all?

We have long been fans of Chuck Black in our house. We have read the entire Kingdom Dawn Series (several times) and bought the audio books as well! We have started on the Knights of Arrethtrae series. They do not disappoint. These books are for around ages 12 and up although we have had our younger children listen in. We have just had to explain some things or stop and talk about things that are difficult to understand for them. Sir...

The story of Sir Quinlan starts out in the war room of hell as Lucious (Satan) and his minions strategize on how to best gain control of, and eventually destroy the land of Arrethtrae (Earth). From there we are taken to a world of knights (Christians), Silent Warriors (angels), Dark Warriors (demons), and a special unit of skilled knights known as the Swords of Valor. The story is highly allegorical and I suspect one would benefit from...

While this may be 5th in a series, we had no problem jumping right in and enjoying the story. Now, we want to read more of The Knights of Arrethtrae series. I figured my son (6 years old) would love this. What boy doesn't love stories of knights and action and adventure. I wasn't sure how much his older sisters would enjoy it. They all loved it! We read this as a family read aloud. Everytime our time for the day was up, there were...
