Publishers Description 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 in this multi-voice dramatization, 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kingdom's Dawn (Kingdom Series, Book 1)?
Awesome book series Sep 18, 2008
My son and I both read all of the books in the series and many times we found it hard to put the books down. I would recommend the books to anyone that enjoys medieval times and sword fights. I enjoyed figuring out the different allagories to the bible that where in the books.
Whole series is great! Mar 25, 2008
I read this book to my 8 & 6 year old children last summer. They didn't want me to put it down. At one point it brought my son to tears. We are currently reading the last book in the series; Kingdom's Reign. I am thinking of purchasing them in audio form sold from the publisher.
bought as a gift Jan 9, 2008
Gave to my 13 year old grandson. He loved it, couldn't put it down! Can't wait to read the rest of the series now. It's hard to find good Christian books that appeal to him, but this has lots of action and adventure, written from a basis of wholesome Christian values. I highly recommend it.
One of the best books I have ever read! Sep 10, 2007
I think that this is one of the best, if not the best book I have ever read. This is book number one in the Kingdom Series, "Kingdom's Dawn". It's a very interesting story, and I love the biblical allegory. The main attraction to this book initially was that it was advertised as having no magic, mysticism, or wizardry in them. This book is very well written, which added a lot to making it enjoyable to read. I think ages from 8 to adult would enjoy this book. Younger than 8 would probably do well with this book as a read aloud. I highly recommend this book!
Biblical Allegory: In the Beginning Jul 14, 2007
The tale of the Bible translated into a medieval Celtic kingdom is the basis for the Kingdom Series. "Kingdom's Dawn", the first in the series, follows Leinad, a young man who typifies many of the early Old Testament characters. Sometimes the allegory seems a little too strained, and Chuck Black does not have the most flowing style, but he certainly has come up with a captivating allegory. Leinad uses his sword, representing the Word, to fight for the King. At one point his people are enslaved in a land, and the allegory is very obvious, as the king who finally lets them go is named "Lord Fairos". There are other like situations that are made very plain in case anyone might have forgotten what the series really is about. As in Bunyan's "Holy War" - which is the best Biblical allegory I have ever read - the same people represent more than one Biblical character or image, so as to have a cohesive story that does not expand over thousands of years. This book correlates to the Biblical account from Creation, through the flood, and into the Egyptian captivity, although often couched in quite different (but very apparent) symbols, all while our hero Leinad is still in his youth. All in all, I enjoyed this book and all the fantastic imagery that reminds one of the Scriptures and their power, and our King.
