Simon can only watch, helpless, as his family is killed and his friends are captured by enemy Travelers - men and women who can summon mystical powers from otherworldly Territories. To top it off, another young man from Simon's village discovers that he's a savior prophesied to destroy evil and save the realm.
Prophecy has nothing to say about Simon. He has no special powers, no magical weapons, and no guarantee that he'll survive. He sets off anyway, alone, to gain the power he needs to oppose the Travelers and topple their ruthless Overlord. It may not be his destiny, but Simon's determined to rescue his fellow villagers from certain death.
Because who cares about prophecy, really?

Such a fun and intriguing story!

Refreshing and the next couple books gets better
Quirky characters (I just wished they were more prominent in the series of books with more depth than some of the stereotypical hero/villains. Like Kai and Benson). And the story wasn't that predictable. It kept me entertained enough to purchase the next two books. I thought it just got better and better - almost as if a plausible fantasy/action movie.
Simon is my favorite character. He isn't born with special powers and/or talents. He actually works, painfully, many times, to earn what he gets. His sheer determination to gain the necessary skills to help his friends, family and others from his village is highly commendable.
I had a difficult time distinguishing: 1) when a character was talking; 2) which character was talking 3) when a character was pondering thoughts to themselves. He spoke rather clearly, but the cadence was sometimes quicker in random and obscure spots. Although I've read the 2nd and 3rd books, I would purchase the audio versions when it becomes available. I would hope that they/he may hire a woman that can at least do the female character's dialog. That at least would clear up some audio listening confusion.
Yes. Once I started, I rarely stopped. Fun for all ages.
I wish there was a detailed version in any of the books of the "Prophecy".
