SUPER THOUGHT-PROVOKING—probably because the allegory relates to biblical prophecy, instead of general concepts in the Christian life. Basically: I just really liked Rowan and his story. The author juggled the characters, plot, and allegory really well; all while creating parallels between the storyworld and the world we live in. There’s definitely lessons to be learned here. SO GO READ THIS. SHOO.

I wish I had read some of the other books in the Knights of Arrethtrae series, but Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest by Chuck Black is the sixth book the series. It is a rags to riches story of a poor stable boy named Rowan with an amazing natural ability to wield a sword. He is eventually helped and trained by a Knight named Sir Aldwyn in not only swordplay but also they ways of the Prince and the Code. Unfortunately a massive time laps happens and suddenly Sir Rowan is an amazing tournament ...more

The 6th book in the Knights of Arrethtrae, Sir Rowan is a wonderful addition to the series! I give 5 stars to this action-packed and suspenseful book!

The story of Rowan - a man who learned the skills of the sword just so he could compete in tournaments, was very thought-provoking (as are all of Black's books). Many people today say they are doing or learning something to bring glory to God - but often it's only for their own glory and fame.

Sir Rowan's story was dull of twist and turns that I was

Again, I love this series! This story is very powerful. It is showing the pride that a christian can get and that God WILL chasten you because you are His child. No matter what it takes, He will bring you back.

I liked this book, but after reading the other books in the series this didn't have the same level of excitement in it for me (not sure why). Almost felt like there was too much backstory, I don't know. Anyway, while I liked it, I was somewhat disappointed as it being the end of the series.

Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest is certainly a series finale, that I will say, and later on in the story the pace did pick up a little, but I must confess it felt a little slow in the beginning. Not all great adventures begin with edge-of-your-seat, dramatic action, but I certainly might have finished it sooner had the story been more gripping. (But then again, that may be just me and my addiction to being riveted)
The story follows the life of young Rowan, a lowly street urchin who taken i

"Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest" is book 6 in The Knights of Arrethtrae series by Chuck Black. As a poor stable boy, Rowan dreams of becoming a swordsman and practices with his homemade wooden sword every opportunity he gets. He knows that his chances of ever achieving his dream are nearly impossible, but nothing can stop a boy from dreaming, can it? One day he crosses paths with Sir Aldwyn and begs to buy the chance to merely hold Sir Aldwyn's sword for a moment. Sir Aldwyn obliges and, in ...more

I have to confess, I was disappointed in this book. I have loved all of Chuck Black’s books, I am a huge fan, but this one just was hard to get into. It spans too many years for a book this small without enough connecting it. It was okay for a one time read but, unlike his other books; I can’t see myself rereading this one

What I liked about it.
It did show well that pride can ruin you, but God can take the broken pieces of your life and make something amazing out if it. Mr. Black does have a wond

As the final book in Black’s Arrethtrae series, I couldn’t see how this story could possibly be better than the others that I’d already read. Yet with each book in the series, it seems that Black’s writing has taken off into a level of its own. The magnitude of Rowan’s tale seems so much bigger and more fulfilling than the 192 pages of the book. Though partway through, I figured out what Black was doing, I was still absolutely stunned at the ending. I finished this book with tears in my eyes, ne ...more

Sir Rowan is a decorated tournament champion, and he believes that is his calling in life. But when Rowan is bettered by another knight and left to die, he reconsiders his priorities. Finally, he decides to serve The Prince at any cost and finds his true calling is greater and more important than anything he could have imagined. His path is riddled with danger and heart-break, but The Prince is with him through it all.
While I really enjoyed this book, it is my least favorite of The Knights of

I recieved this book from a first reads giveaway. The first thing to say about it is, it has many parallels with the Christian faith. If you enjoy a book with the morals, values and revelations spoken of in the Bible, you will love this book. It tells the story of a Knight who is successful and done well with his life only for it all to be taken away, at which point his life changes to one of honor and service to his King. He is brought into the fight agaist evil for the sake of his King and his ...more

The King gifted Sir Rowan, but the Knight of the Prince became distracted by pride and worldly desires, resulting in painful and humbling circumstances. Gratefully the King Who had called Rowan is the Lord of Grace.

I do not often cry when reading a book, but the description of the sufferings and death of those who live and die for the Prince and so others can know Him brings me great sorrow, and the uniting of His people in the Presence of the King gives me great joy. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

This story was full of action, adventure, a little romance... It made me cry a time or two. I have loved all that I read from Chuck Black, and even though I originally read the series when I was younger, I had to read the last book. I think I would have enjoyed this story a lot more if I was younger, but I still enjoyed reading it today. It's clean, and yet filled with enough excitement to please guys and girls alike. I definitely recommend! The King Reigns and His Son!

I enjoyed this series when I was younger, but never got around to the last book. I wish I had because I probably would have liked it better then. It just did not really capture my attention. I did not feel that the characters were is great peril and there were too many lulls. It picked up about halfway through and I started liking it a bit better. I'll have to admit I saw the end coming. Overall the book was good but predictable.

Won this book in a Goodreads giveaway....I could use some medieval novels to share with my students.

Not my favorite... I think it would have gone better had I started with the first in the series. I may try it again when I'm not so busy, but it's not my favorite.

Chuck's currents works include the Knights of Arrethtrae series, Call to Arms, and his series in progress, Wars of the Realm.
