Item Description...
Overview
A Riveting Medieval Parallel to the Bible Good and evil clash. Leinad and Cedric are determined to not only survive, but claim hope and victory! In Kingdom's Dawn , Leinad and Tess, along with all the king's people, must escape slavery by the powerful Lord Fairos. Kingdom's Hope finds them free and arriving in the Chessington Valley . But when they forget the king, will Kergon and the Kessons capture them for good? After many years, Kingdom's Edge finds Cedric living a hopeless life until a stranger appears with powerful words of a new kingdom and a grand army. Finally, Kingdom's Reign marches you through the danger of earth's last days as the evil dark knight threatens to defeat the prince once and for all. Swords, knights, and battles define these captivating tales that parallel biblical events from Genesis to Revelation!

Publishers Description
Fairos thought he had sentenced Leinad to death in the Banteen desert. But Leinad returns - a true Knight of the King. His skill with the sword is unmatched this side of the Great Sea and he is determined to free the people from their bondage to Lord Fairos. Leinad's quest takes him from the chains of slavery, near the jaws of dragons, and close to the arms of love. And when the rest of the kingdom turns away from the King and the Code, Leinad turns to his most faithful ally, Tess. With her help, Leinad struggles to conquer his own doubt. But he must do so soon, for the King's archenemy, the Dark Knight, is about to unleash his entire evil force, and only Leinad can stop them... Journey to Arrethtrae in this multi-voice dramatization, where the King and His Son implement a bold plan to save their kingdom; where courage, faith, and loyalty stand tall in the face of opposition; where good will not bow to evil; where the future of the kingdom is at the threshold of either victory or defeat - and one man holds the key.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent book series for boys  Jan 4, 2007
We are studying medieval times and this played right in to our studies. A great fictional work from a biblical standpoint. My 9 & 10 year old boys loved it.
 
Safe Reading for Children  Oct 28, 2006
Having read the Kingdom's Hope, I was truly surprised to read of an attempted rape (as mentioned in D. White's review). So much so, that I had to find that section and see what I'd missed. But I had missed nothing. Check it out for yourself on this site's Online Reader (a great feature!), page 64. I believe there is nothing there that is inappropriate for children.

These books are truly good books for children. They present good morals, beliefs, values, and everything else healthy for children. With these books, you do not have to worry about what your child is reading - a rare occurrence in our world today!
 
An adult's review  Aug 7, 2006
On the back of the book it says it is supposed to be for teenagers. I enjoy a lot of 'young adult' fiction, so bought this book. Frankly, it's written more for pre-teens, maybe 8- to 12-year-olds. The language and writing is very simplistic for teenagers. I do think a pre-teen could really enjoy it, though.

This book was better than the first one in the allegory department. I'll give this one 3.5 stars. Still, I would have liked it better if it wasn't trying so hard to be an allegory. In an allegory of the Bible, usually one person, event, or idea in the book represents one person, event, or idea in the Bible. Here, a sword can be a real sword used in a real battle or representing a spiritual battle with the Word of God. His two main characters, Leinad and Tess, represent multiple people in many different events covering all of the Old Testament (from Moses to last O.T. prophets in this book). He also is too loose (or not loose enough) in this allegory. For example, his retelling of the Elijah confronting the prophets of Baal is: one of "Jezebel's" knights tries to rape Tess, so Leinad challenges them to a duel in the town square to prove who is the true king of the town. He fights every last one of her knights and defeats them all, but he only injures them.

The author tries so hard to make it clear this is an allegory that he occasionally even uses Biblical names and asks what various people represent in the discussion questions. Yet the events rarely follow the Biblical accounts very closely. It bothered me that he wanted it to clearly be 'from the Bible' but then didn't bother to follow the Biblical accounts very closely. If he had just left it as a fun story with a few nods at Biblical events and concepts, it would have been a better book in my opinion.
 
A good read!  May 12, 2006
The second book in the Kingdom series does not disappoint the reader. It is as positive a work of fiction as the first, Kingdom's Dawn. Here again, I did not catch all of the symbolism that the author meant, reading the study questions at the end of the book. However, in no way does that detract from the book.

Leinad is the leader of the Christian people and his faith in the King, our Lord, is very strong. It is obvious during the first half of the book he represents Moses. The bond between Tess and Leinad is growing stronger throughout the book. Leinad frees the slaves and they begin their journey to the promised land. As the book progresses, it becomes clearer that Leinad's sword represents the King's Word.

The people face many hardships and challenges. Eventually they do reach Chessington. This is the land that the King promised would be good and they would be prosperous. Over the years there they lose faith and become doubters. Leinad tries his hardest to prevent this from happening and tries to convince them to keep their faith in the King but Lord Quinn's wife, Moradiah, is evil. She sways the people and convinces them not to follow the King's Code.

The result is the downfall of Chessington and the people becoming enslaved once again. Leinad's faith is still strong. and he fights for the people to free them again. Tess and Audric help. Their faith becomes stronger and the King helps them in their fight to free the people a second time. At the end of the book we are introduced to the coming of the Prince--Jesus and the hope that this brings.

Author Black has another winner here. The story just seems to flow and leaves the reader wanting more. I think this is a very good book for teens and maybe even children a little younger to read and learn from. Personally, I believe that the book would be a great instrument to be used in Sunday school classrooms.

Armchair Interviews says: The author utilizes the fascination children have with knights to get some very important lessons across without being overbearing.
