Honor the King with your life. Swear allegiance to Him and to Him only, serve the King in truth, justice, and honor. Offer compassion to the weak, the destitute, the widowed, and the poor. Live for the King serve others without cause for personal gain. Never adandon a fellow Knight in battle or in peril. Equip, train, and prepare for battle against the forces of the Dark Knight. Serve the King and faint not in the day of battle. Use not the sword for personal gain, but rather to execute justice and the will of the King. Be merciful, loyal, courageous, faithful, nobel, but above all, be ye humble before the King and before men. Let your words be always spoken in truth. - The Code Sir Dalton And The Shadow Heart

** spoiler alert ** This book was AMAZING! Mr. Black weaves fiction and Biblical truths in a way that is easily understood! I stayed up till the wee hours of the night to finish it, I was not dissapointed! Sir Kendrick and Duncan will be forever etched in my mind. You could tell by the end of the book that Duncan had matured quite alot. He was left with a respect toward Sir Kendrick, and a bit less of a hot head! :) I look forward to the next book in this series, Sir Bentley and the Holbrook Court.
Although I do have to admit, I wonder if Mr. Black will do anything more with Elise and Teara. Do I see a marriege on the horizon? hmmmmm....

This book was clean, the romance was minimal, there was a bit of violence, but nothing disturbing. Overall it is a great book! Its written well, and a rare read of modern day books. Deffentily a must read!
