Book Review of
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!
Kingdom’s Dawn is a biblical allegory. My older sister had read the whole series several years ago and really enjoyed them. I finally picked up this book in 2015 and found myself reading all six in the series in just over a week. This book is exciting as it takes place in the medieval times. The book does have fighting and killing which to me added a great thrill to the book, but they are a bit descriptive for younger children. There is some drinking in one or two scenes. This is a good read for kids ten and up and may be enjoyed a little bit more by boys than girls.
