By: Chuck Black
Number of Pages: 208
Vendor: Multnomah Books
Publication Date: 2010
Sir Rowan is the most decorated tournament knight in Cameria, but when he is attacked and left for dead, his world collapses. Betrayed and lingering at death's door, only a bizarre vision of his Prince and the help of a woman dedicated to the King keeps him alive. As Rowan heals, he finds new purpose in life through service to his King. But his beloved land of Cameria has fallen victim to the tyranny of the Dark Knight.
Rowan's countrymen need his help taking their cities back from the enemy, but all is not as it appears. The mysterious Sir Lijah insists Rowan's purpose lies elsewhere-far away from Cameria, in an ancient city and for an ancient cause. Rowan's destiny is greater than he ever imagined. The final battle with the Dark Knight approaches, and he must choose where he will fight. Will he discover his true identity and purpose as a Knight of the Prince, or will the Dark Knight claim victory for eternity?
A work of art. Chuck Black's Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest has yet again topped his series with a spellbinding plot and an unforgettable finish. The Camerian Conquest is a story of a boy who had nothing, obtained everything, then lost it all as the victim in an evil plot against the Prince. But as any Knight of the Prince would do, he rises to the occasion and risks everything he has for the will or the prince...including his life. It's a story of loyalty to the true King. A story that concludes his series with a final hurrah. The KING reigns! And His Son!
