Title: Warrior Kids: A Tale of New Camelot
Author: Michael J Bowler
Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy
Overall Rating: 4 stars

This book is important! As a Geography student I support the whole Save the Earth idea and this book really promoted that and as a middle grade book, it is so educational to teach younger kids how to battle climate change.

Also it has a lo

This
was an excellent read for me. I am a homeschool mom that loves to use real
books as part of our curriculum and planning. Well this was one more
book to add to the 2015 HOT SPOT for middle grade reads! We
absolutely loved the book. The author Michael J. Bowler is spotless
in his writing, he knows how to keep the child AND adult entertained!
WE definitely want to read more from him. As for the story line, just
my style! This book dealt with young activists that were pushing for
the environment.

Warrior Kids: A Tale of New Camelot is set in New Camelot, where eighteen-year-old Lance and his Earth Warriors are battling climate change. It would seem unlikely that a youth-led movement can save the earth from its own inhabitants, but Lance's movement is spreading across America, attracting friends and making enemies alike. The question is: can they really make a difference?

It's unusual to see a middle-grade novel steeped in different themes often directed to adult audiences: political strug

5-Stars for Michael Bowler’s Warrior Kids a Tale of New Camelot. This story reads well as a stand-alone novel. As the author states, “This book can be read by middle school age and below, but should also appeal to older teens and fans of the original series.”

The story of Camelot evolves as their mission broadens to address the most pressing issue for millennials, the environment. If they don’t act now, the future will not bode well for future generations. Environmentally concerned readers will e

Warrior Kids is book six in the Knight Cycle series, while being a standalone book it drops you right into the middle of the series and the plot lines.

It becomes clear in the first few chapters, to a new reader, that this book and probably the entire series is about Lance, the "King" of New Camelot, and his Earth Warriors. A group of older kids, mostly those lost in the system, ages ranging from 10- early 20's. This group, these Earth Warriors, are taking on first big business, then Congress an

It's been nearly a year since Arthur left to return to Avalon to await the day he might be needed again. Excalibur has chosen Lance to lead this new generation. Since completing their previous quest things have been relatively quiet around New Camelot. But now they have taken up the mantle of a new quest. But this time they are not just looking nationally, they are now looking globally. And, once again, there are those that want to stop "The boy who came back". But can they succeed?

I wrote it and have read it more times than I can recall, but I still love it. These characters I can revisit time and again because they are such an intrinsic part of me, especially Lance. This book takes a balanced look at climate change and how kids of all ages can work toward improving the state of the environment. There is a lot of action, lots of ideas and information about sustainable living, and many activities kids can replicate in their homes and schools and communities. It's a great b ...more

Not being familiar with the series this is spun off of, I handed it to my twelve year old to read and review, as it something that seemed to be in his interests. He handed it back fairly quickly, complaining that it was like studying for a test. That was not was I expected from a fantasy kids novel. It didn’t take me long to figure out what he meant. There were so many facts thrown into just a few pages of the first chapter, I could see how it might be overwhelming. It was a trend that continued ...more

Warrior Kids

This story was a modern day adventure with a legend twist in it. It was about kids that have come together to be heard and to help others and the planet.

There are many things about this book I liked. I love the fact that the kids of today were given a voice as to what can be done to help others and the planet. It was not so much adults telling them what to do but kids ranging in age from 5- 18. There is added activities to do on your own or that if this book were used in a class cou

Lance has a new mission, but no less vital than children’s rights. He’s now taking up his friend Itzali’s cause - climate change. After all, what’s the point of kids having rights when they don’t have a decent world to live in? But just like before, he’s making some powerful enemies and might bring about change, but at the cost of his own life.

Following up on his previous series, author Michael Bowler continues with the characters from his Knight Cycle books. Continuing with his mix of Arthuria

I have to say, I really enjoyed this book – more than I originally thought I would. I’m not much for middle grade fiction, although I do occasionally read it.

The story makes for great reading and is very interesting. I did find myself wishing I’d been able to read the actual Children of the Knight series before reading this book, because things from the series were mentioned in this standalone novel that confused me a bit.

This book is meant to be a kind of boost to kids to show that kids can hav
