It is the dead of night. Sixteen-year-old Tiuri must spend hours locked in a chapel in silent contemplation if he is to be knighted the next day. But as he waits by the light of a flickering candle, he hears a knock at the door and a voice desperately asking for help.
A secret letter must be delivered to King Unauwen across the Great Mountains - a letter upon which the fate of the entire kingdom depends. Tiuri has a vital role to play, one that might cost him his knighthood. Tiuri's journey will take him through dark, menacing forests, across treacherous rivers, to sinister castles and strange cities. He will encounter evil enemies who would kill to get the letter but also the best of friends in the most unexpected places.
He must trust no one. He must keep his true identity secret. Above all, he must never reveal what is in the letter....
The Letter for the King is the thrilling story of one boy's battle against evil, set in an enchanted world of chivalry, courage, and true friendship.

A book to read again and again...
The first time I read The Letter for the King by Tonke Dragt and its sequel I was a teenager and that was over 30 years ago and since then I have reread it many times. It's a story about adventure, secrets, friendship, rivalry, a fight against evil in a medieval setting with legendary kingdoms and knights...
I love this unabridged audio version and Matt Addis does a great job to bring the wonderful story and its characters to life!
I recommend this book for children 10+ and adults alike.
Now I cannot wait to continue to listen to the story of Tiuri and Piak in the sequel The Secrets of the Wild Wood!
