"With sanctified imagination, Chuck Black transports readers back
to the days of chivalry and valor, clashing steel, and noble
conflict-but ultimately he transports readers to the eternal
triumph of the King who reigns!"
- Douglas Bond, author of HOLD FAST In a Broken World, and Guns of the Lion
"Chuck Black is a word crafter who is able to weave Kingdom
principles into the fabric of one's moral imagination. The
characters he has created and the passions they exude, will
motivate readers to follow their examples, which have now been
etched into their awakened conscience."
- Mark Hamby, Founder and President of Cornerstone Family Ministries and Lamplighter Publishing
"Chuck Black is the John Bunyan for our times! Sir Kendrick
and the Castle of Bel Lione is a reminder of the origins of the
spiritual warfare we are to fight daily."
-Iaci Flanders, inductive Bible study teacher and homeschool mom
"Not since C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia have any
fictional books boosted my faith so much. They make me cry with joy
for what the King and the Prince do. They let me see our world
through new eyes. I can't wait to read the Knights of Arrethtrae
series and experience more. The King reigns-and His Son!"
-Sophia, an avid reader
"I was so caught up in the books I would not do anything but
read them. They were amazing...full of action, a little romance,
and most of all, a love for the King and His Son. They made me feel
as though I was truly traveling with the main character on his
noble quest to spread the word of the King and His Son and standing
in the middle of the Great Kingdom Across the Sea. I plan on
reading the books over and over again. I loved the series so
