Kingdom's Dawn by Chuck Black

A Riveting Medieval Parallel to the Bible

Good and evil clash. Leinad and Cedric are determined to not only survive, but claim hope and victory! In Kingdom’s Dawn, Leinad and Tess, along with all the king’s people, must escape slavery by the powerful Lord Fairos. Kingdom’s Hope finds them free and arriving in the Chessington Valley. But when they forget the king, will Kergon and the Kessons capture them for good? After many years, Kingdom’s Edge finds Cedric living a hopeless life until a stranger appears with powerful words of a new kingdom and a grand army. Finally, Kingdom’s Reign marches you through the danger of earth’s last days as the evil dark knight threatens to defeat the prince once and for all. Swords, knights, and battles define these captivating tales that parallel biblical events from Genesis to Revelation!

He’s just a young man, but that doesn’t change the truth.

He was chosen…

Sixteen-year-old Leinad thought he was a common farmer’s son, nothing more. He wondered why his father had trained him for years to master the sword—not exactly a tool of the trade for farmers—but one tragic event initiates a world of revelation.

Only then does he begin to understand his calling—a calling no other man in the entire kingdom of Arrethtrae can fulfill—a calling given him by the King himself.

Teamed with a young slave girl, Leinad is thrust into adversity and danger—for the Dark Knight and his vicious Shadow Warriors will stop at nothing to thwart the King’s plan to restore the kingdom. Leinad will need more than a sharp blade and a swift hand to fulfill his mission and survive the evil plots of the King’s sworn enemies!

Journey to Arrethtrae, where the King and His Son implement a bold plan to save their kingdom; where courage, faith, and loyalty stand tall in the face of opposition; where good will not bow to evil—and the future of a kingdom lies in the hands of a young man.


Story Behind the Book

“When my six kids’ eyes glossed over during a reading from the Bible, I paused to explain the significance of redemption to a sin-sick soul. I was rewarded with patronizing elephant nods and more blank stares. Shortly thereafter, I awoke in the middle of the night with a medieval story enveloping my mind. I wrote it down and later read it to my children. Their waning attention transformed into complete anticipation. I was amazed and disappointed. Why did it take a fictional story, not a Bible passage, to get that response? Then I realized—that is how Jesus taught! Parables are powerful! I penned the Kingdom series to help young people get excited about the supremely significant story of Jesus Christ and His mission to save mankind.”

When I bought this book, the purpose was to give it to my younger brother (he's eleven), who loves books about knights. I wasn't that interested in it myself, but after he read it, he kept telling me how 'totally awesome' the book was, and why I should read it, too. Once I picked it up and actually started reading it, I couldn't put it down, it was almost non-stop action. If you like adventure stories, this book is for you. The story starts with a 16 year old boy named Leinad who lives quietly on a farm with his father and a little girl named Tess that they rescued from a cruel master. After Leinad's father is murdered, Leinad is given a mission to fulfill that he realizes his father has prepared him for. The extra lessons that puzzled him in his youth because they had nothing to do with farming sure come in handy as his skills as a swordsman and his beliefs are challenged. Through it all, he must protect Tess and learn how to serve the good king his father taught him to love. Though this book appeared to be for younger readers, (based on size and reading level) I think all readers can appreciate this alligorical story that is unlike any other I have ever read.

I gave this to my 12 year old daughter as a gift and since she loves mysteries, I thought this might get her "hooked" on a new series that's Christian-based. She read the book SO fast! I was amazed! We're planning on purchasing the rest of the series (she asked me how soon we can get the next one) and will loan them out to friends her age.

I bought all 6 books in the series and couldn't stop reading them. I'm not much of a book reader or very versed on the holy bible, but this was such a great story that everyone will love it. You can read it for the story or for the biblical references, either way you will enjoy it. It was nice that this series has a sound track available to help you get into the story written in part by his daughter. Now I have to get the next series.

"That was GREAT!" quoting my 9 yr old grandson. It is SO difficult to find age appropriate books. This one was recommended and he just devoured it. We'll be looking forward to more from this dedicated Christian Dad.

exciting Bible-based allegorical fantasy I first heard of the “Kingdom Series” by Chuck Black, a homeschooling father, and began noticing it in catalogues back as early as 2004. In Kingdom’s Dawn, Cedric of Chessington tells the story of Leinad beginning when the latter was sixteen years old. For four years, Leinad had been trained in swordsmanship by his farmer father Peyton who is a loyal servant of the unseen King. Leinad’s mother Dinan had died when he was eight. They lived in the Kingdom of Arrethtrae on a farm in the Plains of Kerr, near the town of Mankin, along the western shore of the Great Sea. After adopting a girl named Tess, Peyton is killed by the Dark Knight Lucius, his henchman Zane, who happens to be Leinad’s older brother, and their Shadow Warriors. With the help of their friend Gabrik the blacksmith, Leinad and Tess flee. Then, after escaping the destructive Vactor Deluge, they sojourn in the Valley of Nan and work on the Stanton farm. However, Leinad is betrayed by his fellow workers and sold into slavery to Lord Fairos of Pyron Mid in the region of Nyland. Eventually, Tess is captured and brought as a slave to Pyron Mid as well. Because of his training in swordsmanship, Leinad is chosen to train Fairos’s men but after a battle with the Eminafs he protests Fairos’s treatment people of Nan and is taken out into the Banteen Desert to be killed by the Moshi Beasts. What will happen to Leinad? And the big question is, will he remain loyal to the King no matter what? The entire Kingdom Series of six books is intended as an allegory that attempts to capture the incredible true story of the Bible. The first book covers creation, paradise, the fall, the flood, the patriarchs, and the Egyptian bondage. The second book, Kingdom’s Hope, continues this line of symbolism to the end of the Old Testament. The following books are Kingdom’s Edge, Kingdom’s Call, Kingdom’s Quest, and Kingdom’s Reign. I have not read any of the others besides the first one, but someone has said that the first three are based on the Old Testament, while the last three are based on the New Testament. I have also been told that the last two do relate to the tribulation and millennium. However, what some like about them is that they are Bible-based fantasy in a medieval type of setting with no magic, mysticism, or wizardry. There is only sword fighting, along with accurate descriptions of battle and torture, but these are age-appropriate and not gratuitous. Some people may not like Biblical allegory, but I found Kingdom’s Dawn to be exciting reading that is full of adventure. There are discussion questions in the back of the book.
