Knights Rising: The Silver Knights Saga opens by introducing us to the character of Michael Carlear, a knight in search of his identity and destiny. Our protagonist is on a revengeful quest to avenge his father's death at the hands of the evil mage, Soladar. This journey is further marred by the death of his love, the beautiful Kara, and the person responsible for the same is again Soladar.
Now Michael seeks this evil mage trying to understand the reason for the death of his loved ones. But the only way to do that is to destroy Soladar and all the evil that he controls which include the black beasts called Scarious.
"The all-consuming desire for revenge for the deaths of Kara and his father gnawed at him like an endless hunger, an unquenchable thirst for his enemies' blood."
His only hope may lie in the sword that he carries - a sword that once belonged to the great Silver Knight, Glollas. On his travels he encounters the beautiful and mysterious barmaid, Holly, who hides more than she reveals and is much more than just a romantic fling. While Michael is undertaking his journey, the evil Soladar is on his own mission to destroy the Orb of Chaos, which will imprison the entire free will of humanity.
This tantalizing plot form the background of Knights Rising: The Silver Knights Saga, which gives us memorable characters in the form of magi, knights, saplings, and kruckles and will leave you panting for more.
"The piercing arrow of love is cut by the shearing edge of the sword of truth. Neither can coexist so yet one must fall to the other. Which shall it be?"
