Sir Bentley, a strong but quiet knight of great conviction, forsakes his calling of becoming a Noble Knight and comes to fully believe. He is soon after knighted as a Knight of the Prince. Following in the ways of the Prince, Sir Bentley abandons not only his former life, but also his wealth, becoming a pauper. He immerses himself in the peasantry of Holbrook, where the powerful and greedy Lord Kinglsley rules with an iron fist. The oppressed people of the land pay high taxes to support the lavish lifestyle or the lord and his family.
"With sanctified imagination, Chuck Black transports readers back to the days of chivalry and valor, clashing steel, and noble conflictbut ultimately he transports readers to the eternal triumph of the King who reigns!"

"Chuck Black is a word crafter who is able to weave Kingdom principles into the fabric of ones 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
"My son, Nathan, loved the first book in this series and he said the second was even better. In my son's own words, Mom, it was exciting and full of mystery. It compelled me to read more. I couldn't put it down. As a mom and an author, I give Sir Bentley and Holbrook Court two thumbs up!"
Tricia Goyer, homeschooling mom and author of eighteen books, including Generation NeXt Parenting
Praise for The Knights of Arrethtrae series
"Chuck Black is a master storyteller. The fourteenth-century feel of his books is wholly captivating. Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione is no exception. Yet the principle anchors of the storyfaithfulness, friendship, loyalty, redemption, and forgivenessare what make it fully worthwhile. Expect to see very little of your young knight after he gets ahold of this book. He will more than likely emerge from the pages with an intensified determination to fight the battles in his own life as a faithful Knight of the Prince."
Jennifer Igarashi, freelance writer, homeschool-resource reviewer, and mother of an eleven-year-old Kingdom series fanatic
"Chuck Black has once again transported his readers to the time of knights, castles, and damsels in distress. The Kingdom series was such an enjoyable read that I was surprised to find Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione even more delightful…I was drawn into the tale and cared almost immediately for the characters. I rejoiced in each victory, wept with each failing and loss. Chuck is clearly maturing in his skills, and I look forward with great anticipation to his forthcoming works."
Gail Biby, publications editor for the North Dakota Home School Association and author of North
Dakota Guide to Home School High School
"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."
