Publisher's Summary

Readers of I Am Number Four, The Maze Runner, and Legend will love this exciting new adventure series by the co-creator of the groundbreaking television show Twin Peaks, with its unique combination of mystery, heart-pounding action, and the supernatural.
Will West is careful to live life under the radar. At his parents' insistence, he's made sure to get mediocre grades and to stay in the middle of the pack on his cross-country team. Then Will slips up, accidentally scoring off the charts on a nationwide exam.
Now Will is being courted by an exclusive prep school...and followed by men driving black sedans. When Will suddenly loses his parents, he must flee to the school. There he begins to explore all that he's capable of - physical and mental feats that should be impossible - and learns that his abilities are connected to a struggle between titanic forces that has lasted for millennia.

Critic Reviews

"Mark Frost has created a wonderfully inventive and exciting tale where one exceptional teenager must discover the truth about his family...and himself. The mysteries are unexpected and the mythology is impressively original. A remarkably suspenseful ride. I can't wait for the next installment!" (Chris Columbus, director of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)

Overall a good book but its for YA readers.

I might have given this book an extra star if it was labeled as a teen or YA (young adult). I would not have purchased it if I had know because many of the obvious teen plot lines end up in the book. To be fair to the author, I did continue on reading even after I realized this book was written for kids in mind. The author is quite talented and I did enjoy his writing style. He kept me interested enough to keep reading. Will I get book 2? I'm not sure. I suppose it depends on how interesting the Summary sounds but right now I'm thinking no, I will not.

Final Words: The book's description is accurate. If you liked books like I am Number Four you will enjoy this book.

Exciting. Lots of heart too..Can't wait for book 2

Would you listen to The Paladin Prophecy: Book 1 again? Why?

Yes. I loved the narrator's performance. This story is well paced. This had lots of action and heart.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Will West is the main character and he is definitely very likable.

Which scene was your favorite?

don't want to spoil things. let's just say it had exciting battles.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Yes. If I only had the time.

Any additional comments?

I really loved this audiobook, if you haven't figured this out already. I can't wait for more from Mark Frost and Nick Chamian. I definitely want to get my 10 year old and 8 year old to read this. I'm buying a paper copy. I just might read it to my two boys. Loved it.
