The Seventh Knight (The Kingshield Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
The realm of Faladir has known centuries of peace, until now. Of old, the Kingshield Knights were founded. They were warriors and men of learning. The six of them wandered the land and dispensed wisdom, knowledge and justice. But they bore a sacred charge greater still.
Their solemn trust was to guard against a primal evil. But they have fallen to its lure. Dark things stir. Beasts of nightmare stalk the land and haunt the skies. Blood-drenched sorcery casts its shadow over the realm.
Ancient prophecy foretold that when the Kingshield Knights failed the Seventh Knight would rise to challenge them. But the knights know this, and they seek to kill him before he comes into his destiny.
But fate will not be denied. And the Seventh Knight will stand tall to defy the powers of darkness…

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, the writing style feels very archaic and wordy. It feels like it's written in the 1960s, such as this quote, "In the middle of the group strode a man, taller than the others. Haughty he seemed, and his helm gleamed silver-bright in the dark."
There are many phrases like this in the book that could have been shortened to make the words flow smoother and for the story to be more enjoyable.
I read the author's website and he said he skips reading fantasy books written with modern prose so I can understand what he's trying to do here. I commend him for that, but this book isn't for me. Maybe I could have read it when I was younger but not now that I'm older.
If you like reading books with a more classic feel to them (those tend to be more wordy), you might like this.
This book has no strong points either way honestly (though i will say that is a negative)
I saw another reviewer write that things are not fleshed out and that is a great way to look at it.
This does not feel like book one in a series, it feels like part one out of X of book one
I can say i regret buying it per say but i know i wont be continuing.
- Main character very boring, pretty much useless so don't expect anything from him except some courage and some slightly above average magic skills. He's sloppy, uncoordinated, clumsy and not very bright. He asks questions non stop about everything, he can't solve a single problem on his own.
- Plotline boring and uninteresting for the most part since the series focuses for 3/4 of its books on "training" and "fleeing". It does also focus a lot on overly repeated explanations and inner monlogues, especially when the main character Farlan worries about something, which is always. It was as if the author had tried to make his own version of the Belgariad / LOTR but failed.
- Lore might seem grand and epic (LOTR style) but its not. Most of the history of this world is a copy from Tolkien's books, some from others, even the characters are "heavily insipired" in them, Aranloth is a mix of Gandalf and Belgarath for example, only shallower in it's structure.
- Some of the side characters were interesting, but the author didn't explore them much.
- The story is very repititve and the action scenes are subpar.
- The author focuses too much on this noblebright concept, instead on making the plot more interesting and better paced by forgetting about labelling his craft and constricting it to "noblebright".
- Romance was less than a subplot here.
- For all the effort it was to read every book in this series, they're very short.
Conclusion: I had never ,in all my experience reading fantasy books, wanted to abandon a series while reading it. I had to take a month break from reading just to get over this series' letdown. I came back and quickly finished reading the series, with much effort I might add, I kept drifting off to slumber, be it morning, afternoon or night, I couldn't keep my eyelids from closing while reading these books. I'm sure some people will like it, but not me.
I would still recommend it to Epic Fantasy readers looking for a straight forward and light read.
