Sir Quinlan leaves his boyhood friend to serve the Prince, fighting a
battle darker and more intense than any he’s ever known. The mysterious
Sir Baylor recruits him into the ranks of an elite unit of knights known
as the Swords of Valor, but when tragedy strikes and everyone blames
Quinlan, the Swords of Valor disband, ending a legacy of heroic deeds.

and despairing, Quinlan wanders the kingdom, fleeing his past. His
providential encounter with Taras, a mysterious Silent Warrior and
former trainer of Valor Knights, offers Quinlan a chance to redeem
himself and learn the ways of the secret warriors.

The training
is grueling, and just when Quinlan seems to have left his failures
behind, he receives an impossible challenge from the Prince—one that
will force him to face his past…and the mighty men who blame him for the
tragedy that ruined them.

Can Quinlan reunite the Valor Knights
in time to save the people from the Dark Knight’s evil plot to rule the
Kingdom of Arrethtrae, or will the Valor Knights lose the most important
battle of all?
