About the Book:
Two children. Two journeys. Twin arrows.
Ryla follows her father’s parting instructions as closely as she carries his gift. Her protectors are kind, and safety is certain inside the convent’s strong walls. But now she must leave and what lies ahead is uncertain…
Her brother Drewin won’t wait any longer. The knight promised to escort him isn’t coming, and gossiping neighbors threaten to reveal his identity. He strikes out on his own, sure he can outrun the danger…
A charming short book! This novella was something I would have loved to read when I was 12-16. I wish there were more books like this when I was younger. It is still something I enjoyed today, though a little short. A quick medieval read that is lovely and enjoyable while fraught with suspense and enough excitement to keep a younger boy interested. I think this is the perfect book for girls and boys because the siblings are a brother and sister. The boy seeks adventure and the girls has struggles with her life. Each character offers something that either gender will enjoy. It’s biblical lessons were also sweetly woven in.
~ Sir Larkin. I love the wise, but awesome knights in these type of stories. You tell ‘em sir!
~ Rilla. TOTALLY RELATABLE
~ Drewin. . . also relatable, a normal teen.
~ It was too short! *wails* I want more. Although, I can’t really say that that is much of a complaint as it is a compliment.
~ There were also a few minor errors that weren’t a big deal and didn’t draw me out of the story at all.
An enjoyable book that I would recommend without reservation!
