We bought the first book in this series for our nine year old son. He loved it.....read it over and over and then requested the next book. He does extra chores to earn more books from this series....thats how much he enjoys them. We love that there is a god-centered message throughout the stories. I would recommend this series to friends.
Kingdoms Hope is a great book that teaches about being merciful and kind, even to your enemies. Lienad (Peyton's son) is the luckiest man in Arrethtrae, that he gets to fight alongside the King's Silent Warriors in this book.
I purchased the first book, Kingdom's Dawn, in an attempt to encourage my son to read more. We both enjoy these types of stories. He enjoyed the book so much that he suggested I read it as well,..... and well we're hooked!
Leinad is my favorite character out of all of the books, so I was glad to see his story continue, however I thought it was unrealistic not that he left all of his oponents alive. Still, the book was very well writen.
