Instead of making horseshoes or baking bread, Javan and Lia would rather be knights in the King’s army. “We’ll be the most famous, bravest knights the king ever had,” Lia says. But there are many ways to wear the King’s armor; ways not even Javan and Lia understand until the King reveals a secret that makes the two young villagers the real heroes.
