really liked it
bookshelves: 3rd-term

It has been 4 years since the men have been let out to fight. King Stephen has, like a coward, hidden behind the walls, building them up brick by brick. By the end of the fourth year they stood up like giants, intimidating for miles around. It cannot last. Luke's father, a captain in the army, as well as many other captains, form a group with the head seer to throw the coward out. King Stephen is finally removed and Luke's father replaced as king. Men and women cheer as the army leaves the city of to fight the men of the burning plain. Little does everyone know, danger approaches, and without their army to protect them, who will?

It is an simple yet exciting book of one boys transition into royalty from poverty and back again... I recommend this book to any body who has enjoyed books like Lightning Thief and Eragon.
