In recent years, there has been an explosion of Christian fiction for teens that provide an alternative to mainstream media with questionable content.  Authors like Chuck Black have written books that combine the Christian faith with fantasy, a genre very appealing to my own boys.

The Knights of Arrethtrae is a spin-off series from his Kingdom Series.  While we have only read the 5th and 6th book, this series is written to be stand alone stories of characters.

Book 5 is titled Sir Quinlan and the Swords of Valor and chronicles the journey Sir Quinlan must take to face both his past and decide how he will proceed with his life.  Specifically, he is charged with reassembling an elite group of knights, called the Swords of Valor, to face the threat The Dark Knight poses to the kingdom.

Book 6, titled Sir Rowan and the Camerian Quest, highlights another Knight from Arrethtrae.  Sir Rowan has to heal from wounds sustained in an attack after being left for dead.  He then has to decide where his destiny lies while others try to force their own agenda upon him.

Overall, these are great, quick reads for kids seeking reading in the fantasy genre.  As a parent, I felt comfortable allowing my teen to read other Chuck Black books without any pre-reading on my part.  

Through tomorrow October 28th, I am hosting a giveaway of these 2 books on my blog, Day by Day in Our World.  Feel free to drop by and leave a comment for the chance to win.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Phillipians 4:8
