That is until the day he is accused of the theft of "The Kings Ransom", a gold medallion, rumoured to be impart great power to anyone who in possession of it. The theft alone was bad enough, but a beloved an trusted servant to the king was also killed during the theft.
Gavin, Philip and Bryan unite in their quest to clear the "Wild Man's" name, but to do that they must discover the identity of the real murderer and thief.
Each of the boys, must overcome their fears and demonstrate great courage, in order to fulfil their part on the quest to bring the murderer to justice.
This was a delightful rollercoaster of a read, taking us on a journey with each of the characters. There were moments of great sadness, where I felt so wholeheartedly for the characters and their situations. Ms Carpinello has woven a wonderful tale of facing your fears, and finding the courage within, as each character plays their part in solving the crime.
I loved the twist at the end, and Ms Carpinello weaves in her vast knowledge of King Arthur and the legendary knights of the round table so wonderfully.
This was a quick read, which I recommend to 10+ due to some of the vivid imagery and mild language.
What a delightful story. I am familiar with Cheryl Carpinello's writing from reading and reviewing her first Arthurian book, Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend. Then I was entranced by the author's spell-binding descriptions of life in Arthurian times and her meticulous attention to detail. Cheryl's skills have remained as bright as ever with the unfolding of this fast-paced tale, threaded with mystery, adventure, a bit of magic, danger, darkness, and lovely twists in the end. I so enjoyed the factual information about weapons, clothing, daily life, and places, cleverly interspersed in the text and dialogue to inform without overwhelming young readers. The author has a gift for delving into the depths of each young hero's psyche. The way each one of the trio faces their fears, learns to believe in themselves, and finds their true meaning and path in life is moving. This is a superb coming-of-age story, set in a time of chivalry and pageantry, and harking back to an age when a hero was truly a hero.
