"Journey to Arrethrae, where these knights of noble heart live and die in loyal service to the King and the Prince. These knights are mighty, for they serve a mighty King. They are… the Knights of Arrethrae!" Written by Chuck Black, author of the Kingdom series, this series, although featuring an order of faithful knights and full medieval trappings, is a bit different. While the Kingdom series is based on the events of the Bible, this series is allegorical in the sense that the knights and their enemies reflect Christians today and the temptations of this world. Although the various knights make appearances throughout the series, each title follows one particular knight as they face a powerful adversary. In Sir Kendrick and the Castle of Bel Lione, Sir Kendrick investigates a secretive new order of knights and faces off against Lord Ra, who encourages young people to leave home and never return (symbolizing the danger of rebellion). Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue pits the valiant lady knight against Lord Malco, distributor of the dangerously addictive "esca" crystals (representing various forms of escapism). The storylines are not only enlightening but exciting and would make perfect family read-alouds. If you enjoy them as a family you'll especially appreciate the discussion questions by chapter (answers are included). Pb, just under 200 pgs each. – Jess
