Michael Bowler's Award Winning "Lance Chronicles" Series is on Sale! 99 cents per book through Friday! Don't miss this awesome series!



An orphan boy. A mysterious stranger. A city in crisis.

When 14-year-old Lance is saved from death, his life is forever changed. For starters, his savior claims to be King Arthur, the once and future ruler of ancient Britain. Lance has met lots of weirdos on the streets of L.A., and they claim to be many things. But this “king” not only reeks of sincerity, he wears armor, rides a gorgeous white horse, and lives in the storm drains underneath the city! Arthur has a throne, old-school clothes, and weapons up the wazoo. Swords, daggers, bows and arrows—the kind Lance has only seen in movies.

Turns out this Arthur guy wants to start some kind of revolution. He plans to collect other cast-off kids like Lance—even teen gang members—and create a New Camelot of Knights to gain more rights for youth and shake up the out-of-touch politicians who run Los Angeles.

Lance is all for helping kids like him. He’s spent his entire life in and out of the system, and it sucks. And he wants to believe in Arthur, but doubts even a king can accomplish such lofty goals. Despite these uncertainties, Lance readily accepts the position of First Knight—youth leader of Arthur’s new army—thereby setting in motion a crusade of tsunami proportions. When the children rise, will the city fall?

The Lance Chronicles begin…

In Children of the Knight, Lance and Arthur created a New Camelot of Knights in Los Angeles by using might for right. They rallied the populace to take charge of their communities, while simultaneously putting the detached politicians in check. Now, despite what appears to be the loss of their First Knight, the young activists—joined by a significant new recruit named Ricky—must find a way to move forward.

Their new goal is lofty: give adult rights to kids fourteen and older who are only considered “adults” when they break the law. The crusade seeks to provide teenagers with rights that make a difference in the real world: voting, driving, trading high school for work, and sitting as jurors for peers charged with criminal behavior.

The adults of California balk at giving such power to youth, and the road ahead is anything but clear. However, before Arthur can fully contemplate these matters, he finds himself face-to-face with an ally from the past—one who proves that things aren’t always what they seem, especially for the fallen Lance.

The Lance Chronicles continue…



The most famous boy in the world is a prisoner. He’s been charged with a crime that could send him
to prison for the rest of his life. Languishing within the most secure juvenile facility in California—with the district attorney vowing to make an example of him—Lance must endure the daily indignities of incarcerated youth.

New Camelot is fractured without him. Ricky is bereft, while Arthur feels the loss of his son with a despondency that can’t be quelled. Then there’s Michael, the volatile teen who helped write the proposition that will change California forever. His instability may well threaten the lives of everyone at New Camelot.

As the election looms closer, Proposition 51 takes on an even greater significance in light of the pending trial. The more harshly Lance is treated within the broken justice system, the more he contemplates the wisdom of children having more adult rights. If The Child Voter Act becomes law, and fourteen-year-olds become “legal adults,” might it simply allow real adults to throw more kids into prison?

Whichever way the voters decide, Lance’s greatest fear remains the same: will he ever rejoin the people he loves?

The Lance Chronicles continue…




The campaign to save California’s children was only the beginning. Now Lance and Ricky target America’s most sacred document – The Constitution.

Native American teens Kai and Dakota—harboring secrets of their own—join the crusade and swear undying loyalty to Lance. They carry the hope of their people that the movement will better the lives of Indian children, who are inexcusably neglected by government. This new campaign will take the young people to The White House, the halls of Congress, and beyond in their quest to change the prevailing opinion that children are property, rather than human beings in their own right.

But an unseen nemesis stalks Lance and ratchets up the attacks on New Camelot, promising to destroy all that Arthur has put in place.

“You were right, little boy, death is coming for you, but slowly, and only after it takes out the people you love.” These chilling words haunt Lance, but also strengthen his resolve to protect the people he loves. Or die trying.

The Lance Chronicles continue…




With Lance leading the way, the Knights of the Round Table have set out to convince the American
people that amending the Constitution to protect children is long overdue. As the team travels from state to state, they are met with acceptance, indifference, and hostility. But Lance’s popularity, coupled with his innate charm, gradually sways more of the populace to their cause.

The journey becomes a rite of passage that propels the young people into adulthood and solidifies Lance’s status as an iconic and influential figure.

But he’s uneasy. He knows Arthur is hiding something from him. After The Excalibur Incident in Las Vegas, Lance is certain the future will bring him great sorrow.

Then comes the attack, sudden and brutal.

Now the Round Table is in disarray, and Lance must confront a cold-blooded killer who’s luring him into an obvious trap. If he refuses the challenge, more loved ones will die, and everything he’s accomplished will die with them. Surrounded by the diverse young people who have become his family, Lance sets out for the final showdown with his enemy.

The Lance Chronicles conclude…
