“A story of changing your fate, Knightly Academy follows two common born boys, and one Indian boy adopted by a noble family as they prove their intelligence and bravery and are the first ever 'common' students excepted into the academy. Their friendship grows through adversity and they learn that they are not only fighting to stay in the academy for their own sakes, but that if they fail, no other boys will be given this opportunity. They MUST succeed. But when injuries start happening, people go missing, and the three keep getting unjustly accused by their teachers, how can they possibly find a way to stay?
If you like Harry Potter this has a very similar feel, except there is NOT any magic. While set in a semi-realistic setting and free of magic of any kind, it is not a realistic or historic book due to the creative use of the neighboring kingdom and the laws regarding fighting. Read the book to find out what I mean. :)”
