Title: Clement: Boy Knight of Normandy

Author: Craig Hipkins

Genre: Young Adult Medieval Fiction/Adventure

Book Blurb:

Clement is no ordinary thirteen-year-old boy. He lives in a castle in 12th century Normandy. After helping Adalbert on his quest to find a long-lost treasure, Clement and his friend Dagena return for another adventure. This time, Clement must overcome the evil ambitions of his wicked uncle, Sven the Terrible! Prepare yourself for some medieval action and excitement that you will not soon forget. This is the first book in a planned trilogy. Clement and Dagena first appeared in the novel Adalbert.

My Review:

Clement is not your average boy. He’s a twelfth-century thirteen-year-old Norman knight, also known as the Count of la Haye. After his quest to find treasure, he longs for another adventure. Clement and his friend, Dagena, discover what Sven the Terrible, Clement’s uncle, is up to. They must stop his evil plans before it’s too late but are they in over their heads? Clement and Dagena are ready for this adventure… are you?

Clement: Boy Knight of Normandy is a great medieval adventure any child will love. In fact, most teens and adults will treasure this book. I enjoyed the descriptive narration. It flows well while capturing the reader’s imagination. The plot moves at a great pace and is peppered with historical facts. High praise to the author for bringing the medieval era to life in a fun, approachable way. The characters are what makes this adventure story stand out. I connected with Clement right away and stuck by him until I finished the story. If you’re looking for an adventure story you won’t be able to put down, no matter your age, you’ll enjoy Clement. I can’t wait for the next adventure. Highly recommend!

My Rating: 5+ stars
