The Paladin Prophecy (Library Binding)
Fall '12 Kids List
“Frost, co-creator of the cult classic series Twin Peaks, sure knows how to weave a complex flight of imagination. The Paladin Prophecy is chock full of twists, turns, back flips, and somersaults. The story of Will and his band of uncommonly talented friends -- and just as frightfully talented enemies -- tops the list of books I can't wait to handsell this fall!”
— Ramona Wanlass, Square Books, Oxford, MS
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.
