by Chuck Black
Paperback: 176 pages
Publisher: Multnomah Books; 1 edition (May 5, 2009)
Sir Dalton, a knight in training, seems to have everything going for him. Young, well-liked, and a natural leader, he has earned the respect and admiration of his fellow knights, as well as the beautiful Lady Brynn.
But something is amiss at the training camp. Their new trainer is popular but lacks the passion to inspire them to true service to the King and the Prince. On top of this, the knights are too busy enjoying themselves to be concerned with a disturbing report that many of their fellow knights have mysteriously vanished.
When Sir Dalton is sent on a mission, he is captured by Lord Drox, a massive Shadow Warrior, Bruised and beaten, Dalton initiates a daring escape, but what will become of the hundreds of knights he’ll leave behind? In a kingdom of peril, Dalton thinks he is on his own, but two faithful friends have not abandoned him, nor has a strange old hermit who seems to know much about the Prince. Can Dalton face the evil Shadow Warrior again and survive?
Review: Reid A. Pre-teen Reviewer
Sir Dalton is another book in The Knights of Arrethtrae series. This book, as well as the rest in the series, is a male teen’s dream. With action, adventure, and plenty of sword combat. Sir Dalton tries to live the life of a knight, but is soon put in an extremely perilous situation and must search deep within himself to truly serve the prince. This book is a quick read and well worth the time it takes to read it. I truly never stopped reading this book. This book is great.
