Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest

This is the first book I've read by Chuck Black.  When I first heard about his books, I thought they were books for boys.  However, after reading just the first page of this book, I realized that these books aren't just for boys!  

While reading this book, I saw many parallels in my own life.  In the beginning of this book, Rowan was a lowly child who was trained by a Knight and taught the ways of the Prince.  However, as he got better at the skills he was born with, he sought after worldly gain - prestige, money, etc...  Reading further, there are many hardships that came Rowan's way.  On the way to these hardships, he was warned but never headed the warning.  As Rowan thought he was finally spent, things began to change.  

As you read on, you will find true repentance, forgiveness and love in this story.  It's very hard for me to not give away more of this book than I already have.  Does this mean that Rowan no longer encounters struggles - no!  But it does mean that he knows where he allegiance lies.  Live or die, he will forever serve his Prince and King!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
