The Noble Warriors Series by William Nicholson

People said the Nomana warriors had magic powers. They carried no weapons, wore no armour, they had no need. They were the Noble Warriors of the true way, and no one could stand against them - until Seeker. All his life Seeker has yearned to join the Nomana to fight alongside them, and to find glory. Until the day he discovers that this 'noble' sect are perhaps not as noble as they seem. Seeker sets out to uncover the truth, whatever the cost. Nicholson's first trilogy for teens, 'The Wind On Fire', met with universal acclaim. This second trilogy promises to be even more spectacular than his first.
Seeker, Morning Star, and the Wildman return in this gripping sequel to Seeker and discover that the mysterious warrior sect they were so desperate to join is not what it appeared to be from the outside. Deeply disillusioned, the three escape and head off on what they think are separate quests but that soon become intertwined--and desperately life threatening. Fortunately, they have acquired the remarkable physical skills of the Noble Warriors, for they are certainly going to need them. The mighty warlord of the Orlan nation is gathering his forces and has vowed to destroy Anacrea--and everything and everyone that crosses his path. With its riveting and deft handling of myriad themes including love, courage, friendship, desire, faith, and redemption, Jango will mesmerize every reader who dares to take the journey.
The safe haven of the Noble Warriors has been demolished and the Nomana have disbanded. When a young boy preaching peace and joy mesmerizes all who come in contact with him, a large following grows quickly--one that soon includes Morning Star and the Wildman. Yet Seeker, who is obsessed with his increasingly perilous journey to kill the last savanter, finds his mission placing him at odds with this new leader. As loyalties and friendships and faith are tested, all three heroes must question: Who can be trusted? And what can be believed? Part adventure-fantasy, part love story, and part reflection on the themes of power and faith, Noman is a thrilling and thought-provoking novel--a beautiful wrap-up to a critically acclaimed series.

This series is totally a teen series. I know someone who just read it and they said that it was a teen series. I copied/pasted the summaries of the books from another website and for some reason they call it a childrens book...why I don't know.
