    1. We tend to forget that famous people are still just people.cially when those famous people are youth/kids. I read an article recently about Jennifer Lawrence (a young lady who is quickly becoming one of my favorite actresses) of "Hunger Games" fame. Her father said her fame hasn't changed her in their family much, that she is still going to go through all of the same processes of identity formation and such that other young people go through. She will just do so under a microscope since she is s [...]

    2. “We shalt find another way” declares King Arthur in his slightly obscure version of olde English, as destiny’s path seems thwarted. But a friend from the past has a solution in this tale of modern-day knights on (and off) the streets of LA and when a miracle occurs, the whole world will take notice.Religious authorities question what comes from God and what from Satan, as they simultaneously chase after and try to ignore the miraculous Lance. Politicians question the rights of children to [...]

    3. Running Through a Dark place is a 5 STAR 2014 YA “motion picture of books!” Reading Michael Bowler’s newest novel in his Children of the Knight series was comparable to experiencing a live action and adventure motion picture—the story’s compelling action reeled through my head as if projected on the big screen. Closely entwined with the action that I will confess yanked the rug out from beneath my feet time and again, were touching moments that tapped me on the shoulder and demanded my [...]

    4. I won this book in a competition on Elisa Rollle's blog and YA is not normally a favoured reading genre of mine. I was advised that book 1 was essential reading before starting this and whilst I could see how knowing some more about the relationships would enhance the overall experience. I did find this one compelling and readable on its own though. 3.5*+Overall I found this to be a very emotive read, as well as a long intense read. Certainly the opening chapters (as well as a number through the [...]

    5. I am not sure I can remember reading a book that tugged my heart strings in this way. Up, down, backwards, forwards, in, out, over here, over theremultaneously…and TIGHTLY! I started Running Through a Dark Place and could not put it down. My emotions ran rampant, crying regularly, lying awake angry at one character or another, mostly just trying to internalize a story that consumes you from word one. I was mesmerized with Michael J. Bowler’s second novel of children who are trying to take ov [...]

    6. "Children of The Knight II: Running Through a Dark Place" Review.WOW, what a roller coaster ride Michael sent me on with this second installment of his Children of the Knight series.I was crying with sadness, then spell-cast, then crying with happiness. Arthur's "Childrens' Crusade" is well on it's way after cleaning up the various `hoods in L.A His new Round Table is growing by leaps and bounds. But even as they gain momentum and more supporters, they are also gaining more enemies. Will the adu [...]

    8. Having read and enjoyed the first book in the series, Children of the Knight, I was very interested in the sequel, Running Through a Dark Place.  It picks up literally five minutes after Book 1 ends, with the aftermath of a death of one of King Arthur's "knights."I was a little turned off by the first two chapters.  I don't want to give away too much, but some events take place which serve to make Lance, Arthur's first knight, a bit of a celebrity.  I thought that the development of these fi [...]

    9. This followup to the excellent Children of the Knight picks up where the former volume left off. While I admit that the first few pages seem to take some time, the exposition is tight and the drama is palpable. That said, once the main plot starts moving forward it's a roller coaster ride of suspense and emotion. The complex interactions between Lance, Ricky, and Michael - including touching moments, maddening misunderstandings, and potentially tragic mistakes - builds in intensity and keeps one [...]

    10. A nice continuation of book #1, Children of the Knight. Some sad moments, some new love and some action, some Arthurian characters and real heart.

    11. Very good story. It got a little tedious in places, and I kept wanting to grab lance and smack him. For such a wonderful smart boy, he was also incredibly stupid sometimes. In fact he acted just like a kid. I guess for a kid that has been through what he went through and didn't have anyone to guide him, he came out remarkably good.Some parts of this story made me really angry. Any adult that would do something to a kid and call the kid names, is beyond despicable. Too bad kids don't know the adu [...]

    12. Not long ago I reviewed the book Children of the Knight which was Michael Bowler's first book. Little did I know that this was only the first book in a series of five. I loved his first book and thought when I got the chance to read this second book, that it would be great.The book picked up where the last had ended with Sir Lance's death. Or is he? We find out soon enough that he is not and that pushes Lance into an unintentional celebrity status. The book throughout deals with his celebrity st [...]

    13. Thought I'd share this review from a teen reader who is not on Reviewed by Ben Weldon (age 17) “Running Through a Dark Place: Children of the Knight II” by Michael J. Bowler is the story of fifteen-year-old Lance and his adventures in Los Angeles with the recently resurrected King Arthur. Brought back from the dead by Merlin and Lance’s friend, Jack, Lance was tasked with the monumental job of maintaining the crusade and winning rights for Californian kids.
