    **Possible spoilers for The Hollow Crown**I'm so excited to have finally gotten my hands on this!! It did not disappoint. The Silent Shield sees the continuing adventures of Trneowy Kiskaddon in her quest to become an Oath Maiden, earn the seat of the Siege Perilous, and protect her King. I absolutely love this series. I cannot recommend it enough to fellow fantasy fans. Books 3-6 in particular, are reimaginings of Arthurian myth. (King Drew is Arthur, Queen Genevieve is Guinevere, Trynne is Lan [...]

    No spoilers.In this fifth entry into the Kingfountain Series, Trynne is gaining new magical powers, and politcal talent, as she is in the midst of intrigues threatening to pull her kingdom completely apart. What has happened to Owen her father and the hero of the first three books. Other great characters such as Iago and Morwenna change or are they hiding something, as the story progresses.If you are reading this series you will not be disappointed in this entry.

    Disclaimer: I received an advanced copy for my unbiased review."The Silent Shield" by Mr. Wheeler is the fifth book in his Kingfountain series but it might be the most engaging of them all. We find Trynne as a young adult now grappling with the constant tragedies befalling her family and kingdom. All the while, she has to keep a secret about who she really is and what she is trying to accomplish. In many ways, beyond the Arthurian legend connections, this almost feels like a superhero origin sto [...]

    Aaaaaaargh! I Just finished the Silent Shield and have promised to put up a review. I was SURPRISED, which almost never happens anymore, rewarded with the confirmation of many things I suspected, and came to appreciate a new side of a character I had viewed differently in a prior novel, with only a little disappointment about the resolution of one of the plot arcs involving the new generation in Kingfountain. But I can't discuss any of those things without ****SPOILERS**** while my mind races wi [...]

    The Silent Shield is the 5th book in the Kingfountain series and the penultimate book of those announced. If you have not read this series, I implore you to give it a try and to become emotionally invested in the characters; their triumphs and their defeats. Like with the previous book, The Silent Shield focuses mainly on Tryneowny Kiskaddon and her life and training. She is an Oath Maiden and was finally given permission to train others as well. Although the previous book had tragic events, the [...]

    I continue to be amazed at the work of Jeff Wheeler. Another great fantasy story told without succumbing to the grimdark constants of sex, oceans of blood, and gratuitous profanities and vulgarities. Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see where these characters go from here!

    Fantastic continuation of this series! So much happens with great twists and lots of magic! Thankfully this book doesn't bottom out like many lengthy series do! If anything it ramps up!

    Couldn’t put it down!I loved this book & cant wait for the next one this year! I love how the authors other books were incorporated into this amazing story! I also love that this author actually releases his books sooner rather than later because I can’t wait until the next book!

    This is my favorite of the Kingfountain series so far. I'm really glad that I've read all the Muirwood books, because it makes this so enjoyable when I catch all the tie-ins. Trynne Kiskadon is amazing. Mr. Wheeler really did a fantastic job describing the fight scenes, and it's fun to pick up on the myths and history woven throughout. Now I just have to wait until November dang it!

    Well it just sucks that I now have to wait until November to know what happens next! Finished this in 24 hourswhile working full time! Really enjoying the series and Jeff Wheeler's writing. Great characters that I care about, great action, great intrigue, and a great narrator!

    I have been enjoying this series very much and I am so glad someone had recommended the first book to me a while back.The Silent Shield is book number 5 in the Kingfountain series and it is a young adult fantasy series. The Silent Sheild got me hooked from the very beginning and I just couldn't (and didn't want to) stop reading it until the end. This book and the series is easy to read so I recommend it if you are new to the fantasy genre.

    A very interesting twist in the tale! At times heartbreaking, and at others filled with joy, this novel continues the Kingfountain series with the excitement I have come to expect from Wheeler.

    The Silent Shield by Jeff Wheeler is the fifth entry in this series that I originally thought would be a trilogy. The threatened invasion by Gahalatine and his powerful Wizrs, the disappearance of Own Kiskaddon, the departure of King Andrew's own powerful Wizr has Kingfountain in turmoil. Trynne, who misses her father and must face the immediate departure of her mother, must put her concerns aside and focus on who might be willing to betray the kingdom. Her two top suspects include Fallon, the m [...]

    The story of Trynne continues as she tries to protect her king and keep her secrets. While doing so, she suffers immense personal losses and the destiny of her heart becomes more clear. What more will she have to sacrifice to keep her realm intact? She learns more about the enemy, Gahalantine, as war with him draws near. Perhaps he is more the puppet instead of the puppetmaster. I really enjoyed this book, and wish I could give it an extra 1/2 star. I also want to repeat what I have mentioned in [...]

    I was fumbling around on the rating for this story. On the plus sides for this story it was probably my favorite of the series. The action was good especially at the end and Trynne definitely seems like a stronger character. Some of the mentions of family were also good when referencing Genny and Kate. Third, the inclusion of Leerings, Tay-al Ards, and the tree of Immortality was neat to see finally all of your worlds combined in a way. I look forward to seeing more of Owen's recovery and return [...]

    Since Jeff Wheeler kindly gave me an early copy I'm trying to be extra good about not giving out spoilers in this review.Through the entire series I have liked how each book resolves a number of problems even though new problems crop up. I never have felt like I'm just being strung along. The Silent Shield has this same format. As you remember we were left on tenterhooks from The Hollow Crown that Owen has been kidnapped and King Drew has been given a year respite from the war because of this un [...]

    WARNING: Some spoilers!Still admittedly not enjoying this sequel series as much as I did the original trilogy, but it has still been entertaining enough that I'm enjoying it. The characters are engaging.However.There are a few things that are starting to drive me a bit nuts. In the first place, I am frustrated by the fact that, once again, we have a romance that the author insists on flouting and refusing to satisfy. It was hard enough to take the first time around, when we randomly had the main [...]

    Tryneowy Kiskaddon's father is missing. Her mother is overcome by grief. Her country is reeling from the Battle of Guilme where her king and countrymen were nearly annihilated. King Gahalatine has promised them a year to prepare for his return to conquer their country. In order to prepare for his return Trynne has begun training women from all over the country to be Oath Maidens, ready to defend home and hearth. As old enemies attack and new threats arise, Trynne has to discover who she can trus [...]

    4.5Reader thoughts: I am skeptical about the romance (she's only 16! How can she pick a husband??), but I really liked the rest.I got lost a few times when Trynne was hopping from place to place. I'm not sure how long everything took from the time her island was invaded until the final battle at the capital's palace and her negotiation with the emperor guy.I love how much Trynne had to struggle. She loses her dad, then her mom, and then her brother. She doesn't just lose her head; she does her b [...]

    “They call him the Painted Knight, but I think of him as my silent shield. When I am in danger, he is there.”(from The Silent Shield)Unlike the second book in the series, which followed several years after the events in the first, The Silent Shield begins soon after the end of The Hollow Crown. The narrative continues to follow Tryneowy “Trynne” Kiskaddon as she continues to train and learn the extent of her powers. Fresh after the loss of her own father, Owen Kiskaddon, who was kidnappe [...]

    Excited for the next bookI have really enjoyed this series since the beginning and I have become a fan of Jeff Wheeler's writing as I have read his other works. The Kingfountain series is where I began with his work, and the continuation has not disappointed me at all. I love the re-imagining of familiar stories and legends from history. The characters are so well written. I'm actually struck by how well he writes following a woman as the main character. Trynne is a really great character to fol [...]

    I have enjoyed this series from the beginning. Strong characters, interesting landscape, enough action but not too much (nothing sours me on a book faster than guys fighting just because 50 more pages have passed, and it's time for a fight). The women warriors are believable to me, and welcome. There is one problem that almost led me to downgrade it to four stars, and it is almost inevitable in a series that runs beyond a trilogy: the need to recap previous story threads, remind us how the chara [...]

    This one was so much better than the last. There was more action and it was much easier to get through. I would have given it four stars but there were just some plot lines that bothered me. It just seems totally unrealistic that Gahalatine would be so power hungry but a short speech from Tyrnne and he realizes the error of his ways. And he would be willing to bow down to someone he sees as inferior just so she will marry him. I think it just happened so quickly at the end, it was hard to believ [...]

    Jeff Wheeler does it again! I've been a vocal advocate of the Kingfountain series (and all of Jeff's books) since I discovered them early last year. Since then, I have devoured them all and have loved every magical, battle torn, minute of it. The Silent Shield is a stunning adventure set in a world of complicated politics, espionage, and a magical history wrapped in religion. Trynn's story continues in The Silent Shield as she fights a distant emperor, learns to unleash her power and trains a gr [...]

    Well worth the wait!I had to read book five again to feel good going into book six! I am truly a fan of Jeff Wheeler's story telling. His books always grasp me and pull me in The Fountain calling me? However, I want to comment on a technical aspect of his books. There are NO typos, or words of the wrong definition (ie: star instead of stream, form rather than from). These errors are not missed by spellcheck They are missed by proof readers. I am a bit OCD when it comes to reading. I read every w [...]

    I'm liking these books kinda despite myself; I've already pre-ordered the last book, and am looking forward to seeing this series wrap up, to see what happens with it. It's light but sweet, and reasonably well-written. I did notice a couple awkward phrases and a typo or two, not enough to seriously detract, but more noticeable than the previous books. My prediction of the event that I felt was broadcast in the first book was fulfilled (or at least, it seems like it will be imminently, at the end [...]

    The Silent Shield is the fifth book in the Kingfountain series and is as excellent as the last four, if not even better. The book continues almost a year after the battle with Gahalatine's forces and centres around the life of Trynne Kiskaddon. The book is fast paced and Trynne, Fallon and Elwis have grown up and are ready to face all that is thrown at them. As usual, Jeff isn't afraid to push his characters to the limit with the twists, turns and grief he inflicts on them. This often has you in [...]
