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.
These three friends have to work together to save one of their friends from being executed as a murderer and a thief by finding the real killer! Two of the boys have to go into enemy territory and fight for their lives to help their friend!
Cheryl Carpinello's middle grade adventure novel, featuring a visit from King Arthur and a few of his knights, is a wonderful introduction ~ to King Arthur, and to the lives of knights and others in a castle.
While there is some mild violence, and blunt discussion of how to deal with a murdering thief, this is a wonderful book for young readers as well as older students.
I hope this series continues. I'd love to meet Seanna again.
3 young friends befriend a stranger to their kingdom. When he is falsely accused of a crime, they take it upon themselves to find the true criminal.
I did receive a copy of this wonderful book in exchange for my honest opinions.
