Start of a thrilling series
"The Great Tree of Avalon: Child of the Dark Prophecy" is the first book in the new series by T.A. Barron. Avalon is literally a tree, planted by the wizard Merlin, and people live in the seven lands comprised of its roots. The story starts with a prophecy, babies, and flight from danger, capturing the reader's imagination right from the start.
The gist of the book is that the fate of Avalon now rests with three young people: one of whom is the true heir of Merlin, the only person who can save Avalon, and one of whom is the dreaded child of the Dark Prophecy, the person fated to destroy it.
You have a magical world, interesting characters, and a plot that keeps the reader guessing every bit as much as the characters. All in all, it's a very entertaining read.
