"Men of Iron" is a book boys will enjoy reading. It has daring swordfights and emphises the chivalry of the knights, which is sadly neglected in other books about knights in the middle ages.
Buy it; you won't regret it!
This book will grab you interest whether you're male or female. It is about a young boy growing up in the middle ages and learning about, fighting, honor, the church, and love. A great read! I loved it and I think my brother (who's entering 7th grade) will enjoy it too as he reads it for his book report. :)
