Young Knights Of The Round Table: The King’s Ransom – Book Review

The Kings Ransom

Review Copy

For years, there’s been a Wild Man living in the forest outside of Pembroke Castle, where King Wallace reigns. No one knows who he is, where he came from, or why he is there. So, when a murder occurs inside of King Wallace’s castle and the King’s Ransom – a powerful medallion – is stolen – everyone believes that the Wild Man is responsible for these terrible crimes – especially when incriminating evidence is found in his possession.

Everyone, that is, except for three young boys who consider the Wild Man their friend.

Eleven-year old Prince Gavin is King Wallace’s youngest son. Prince Gavin and his friends – thirteen-year-old orphan Phillip and fifteen-year-old Bryan, the blacksmith’s apprentice –do not believe the Wild Man is capable of committing such terrible acts. They believe that the Wild Man was framed. So, the three boys set out to prove their friend’s innocence.

However, they must act quickly. If they cannot clear the Wild Man’s name by the time King Arthur arrives – within a few days time – the Wild Man will be put to death!

Young Knights Of The Roundtable: The King’s Ransom by Cheryl Carpinello is an educational yet entertaining book that reluctant readers will enjoy and adventurer seekers will love! It’s a story about friendship, loyalty, and overcoming one’s fears. The ending is full of surprises.

The story will captivate middle grade readers and parents looking for books that boys will appreciate will want to take special notice of this book!
