Publishers Description Sir Bentley, an honorable young knight, abandons his calling in order to seek the truth of the Prince. Choosing to live as the Prince did, he forsakes his former lifestyle and wealth to live as a pauper. His travels take him to Holbrook, where the townsfolk live in poverty, paying high taxes to support the lavish lifestyle of Lord Kingsley and his court. But something even darker is lurking in the shadows of the beautiful castle. Bentley soon befriends Eirwyn, a mysterious but compassionate young woman who often distributes food among the poor. When Eirwyn is kidnapped by a ruthless tribe to serve as a sacrifice, Bentley battles a vicious mountain creature to save her life. But when he discovers who is really behind Holbrook's downfall, he's faced with an even bigger challenge-battling the Dark Knight's most evil commander and his Shadow Warriors as they attack the castle. Will greed destroy the kingdom the way it destroyed Lord Kingsley? Or can Sir Bentley and Eirwyn work together to restore order and prosperity to the kingdom through the compassion and grace of the Prince? Journey to Arrethtrae, where these knights of noble heart live and die in loyal service to the King and the Prince. These knights are mighty, for they serve a mighty King. They are...the Knights of Arrethtrae

My sons favorite author... May 22, 2009
does it again. Chuck Black writes fiction that kids can really get hooked on, especially boys! My son is 11 and Chuck Black is his hands down favorite author. He reads his books again and again. He says that each one is better than the one before. My 13 yr. old daughter also enjoys reading them.
Great Fantasy Mar 27, 2009
It was a good day for young Sir Bently's family when he took the oath of the order of the Noble Knights, swearing to uphold the honor of the knights and to protect them always. When word comes that a handful of Followers are meeting in a nearby hut, Bently is happy to join the group of knights sent to investigate. On the way, they are overpowered by five massive warriors. Just when it looks as if all is lost, four other warriors, bearing the mark of the Stranger, identifying them as Followers, drive off the invaders. Since the Followers are the very people the knights set out to capture, Bently has questions. He asks his father to explain who the Stranger is. As his father ells it, they executed the Stranger, but his men still give up everything to follow him. Bently knows the price he will have to pay if he gives up the knighthood, but the Stranger is calling him. He sets out to learn the truth. Chuck Black is a new writer for me, and I loved this story. I couldn't put it down. A fascinating tale of the battle between Jesus and Satan, set in a fantastic land of knights and ladies, dragons, wealth and crushing poverty. If you like fantasy, don't miss this one. Strongly recommended.
Yes SIRee! Mar 23, 2009
When I first picked up Sir Bentley and Holbrook Court, the second book in the series, I was afraid I might be lost not having read the first. That wasn't the case. The book had a couple of pages of introduction to the Knights of Arrethtrae, which became very clear that the first book was a retelling of Christ with knights and kings as the background.
Knowing that it was an allegory of sorts, it was easy to understand who they were talking about, and having read other such books, I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this one as much, but I did! Soon the allegory got lost in the story and it turned out to be a very fast, worthwhile read.
Knights, swords and dragons... Mar 1, 2009
Knights, swords and dragons... Sir Bentley's faith is tested when Sir York gives orders that seem to contradict the teachings of the Prince. He strikes out on own in search of truth. Along his journey, he encounters a village living in poverty while Lord Kingsley lives a life of opulence off their tax money. He meets Eirwyn, a mystifying young woman who offers helps the poor. When she is kidnapped, Sir Bentley must battle ferocious opponents to rescue Eirwyn. Will greed conquer the kingdom or will the grace of the Prince persevere?
Chuck Black returns us to a medieval kingdom filled with knights of courage, gallantry, furious sword battles, and dragons. He continues his Knights of Arrethtrae series with book 2, Sir Bentley and Holbrook Court. I enjoyed the first book, and this one far surpasses it. This book is filled with mystery and adventure. Black has an amazing talent. He offers readers an allegorical interpretation of the Bible and spiritual warfare. While this book stands well alone, I suggest you read book 1 first. This is a series for all ages. Sir Bentley and his adventures will mesmerize young and old alike.
