Level 12

“God has brought me through many dangers, can He not protect me in this one?” This Level 12 book takes a true-to-life look at a grievous and difficult time period: The Wars of the Roses. Young Rex is surrounded by the dark elements that were rampant at the time—treachery, vengeance, and hatred—but he stands out as a shining example of courage, love, and loyalty. Pondering a riddle carved into the tower of his home, he could never imagine how drastically his life was about to change. Plagued by secrets of his childhood he does not understand, pursued by thirsty enemies set on revenge, and wrongly accused of high treason, Rex wonders what dangers he will encounter next. Through the heroic example of his beloved father and the faithful devotion of a young king, Rex models what it means to be courageous and loyal in the most tragic of circumstances.
