Review: Sir Bentley and Holbrook Court is a fantastic journey into the world of a knight of the Prince. Sir Bentley and his friends represent the many people in the world who fight and die for Christ. This story captures the reader, and he can't put it down! I've read books that have captured me, but rarely to this extent. This book is amazing! I highly recommend it. Review by Reid, Age 12
