My thoughts- Would I recommend? Yes. I recommend this book to people in the age group listed and also to adults, as the reader can see the consequences of what extreme pride can do to you. I am sad to know the series is ending.
I love reading these books and my favorite part in the book is the “author commentary.” After reading the book the commentary pulls everything together and I can then meditate upon the message and how I can apply it in my own life.
Sir Rowan sets a perfect example of how extreme pride can cause your life to change in an instant. His life as a tournament knight was very self-centered. He thought he deserved it, because he had been a street urchin. He thought his heart was still with the Prince, but he had been deceived. We need to be mindful as Christians that we are not living our lives in pride, because life can change for the worse when you least expect it.
I plan on acquiring the books in this series and the Kingdom Series, because I plan on using them as a teaching tool for my children.
