Kingdom Series | Pt. 1
Sixteen-year-old Leinad thought he was a common farmer’s son, nothing more. He wondered why his father had trained him for years to master the sword – not exactly the tool of the trade for farmers.
Only then does he begin to understand his calling – a calling no other man in the entire kingdom of Arrethtrae can fulfill – a calling given by the King Himself.
Teamed with a young slave girl, Leinad is thrust into adversity and danger – for the Dark Knight and his vicious Shadow Warriors will stop at nothing to thwart the King’s plan to restore the kingdom. Leinad will need more than a sharp blade and a swift hand to fulfill his mission and survive the evil plots of the King’s sworn enemies!
Journey to Arrethtrae, 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 – and the future of a kingdom lies in the hands of a young man.
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 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 conquor 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, 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.
For Cedric of Chessington, every day is the same: full of poverty and despair. He knows that it will never change. Or so he thinks.
Then, a stranger comes to the city. Drawn to the man’s mysterious ways, Cedric discovers the stranger’s humility belies great strength and wisdom. That’s when an astounding truth becomes clear – the stranger is a Master of the Sword, and He is there to train Cedric.
Suddenly propelled into a desperate battle against evil, Cedric must rely on the Master’s training if he is going to survive. But the ultimate battle is yet to come, for the Dark Knight is at work, implementing his plan to take over the kingdom. Will Cedric be ready to stand in the face of pure evil?
Journey to Arrethtrae, 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; and where hope and compassion are as powerful weapons as the sword.

First off, the names are really cool! Leinad is Daniel spelled backwards. Arrethtrae is terra earth spelled backwards (terra is Latin for earth.)
The Kingdom Series starts in Kingdom’s Dawn with the story of Leinad. Leinad represents the Old Testament people from Seth, Adam’s son, to Malachi.
Second is Kingdom’s Hope, which continues the story of Leinad, including the captivities.
Third, and last for the day, Kingdom’s Edge is where Leinad is left behind and Cedric comes into the picture. And that starts the New Testament stories.
The fighting scenes are very well portrayed, which is great! (Those scenes are really hard to write well.) And these books, though allegories, are very biblically accurate!
On Amazon Kingdom’s Dawn, Kingdom’s Hope, Kingdom’s Edge.
And I almost forgot: there are audio books too! The narrator is really good; there are also sound effects. 🙂
See you all next week!
