I really like this book. Although it was written for a younger audience, I really got into it. It was fast paced, creepy, but not creepy to the point where I had to keep the dog inside with me. The plot line was well written, I didn't find really any big holes there. It was a great book for parents who have kids into all the worlds paranormal stuff, because this does have a christian theme running through it.
Something sinister was after them, something that only they could see. Something from their past. But the memory from childhood - 7 years earlier was buried- buried deep. Will they remember what has been forgotten in time to save themselves?
Jonah Becker's world has gone from bad to worse. His parents were murdered. His brother, Sam is dead. And now someone or something is out to kill him and his friends. Jonah and his friends are caught in the endless struggle between good and evil because they have a special gift - the gift of sight!
The first six chapters seem slow as the key characters are introduced, but the story quickly draws you in with each successive chapter. When THE PROPHECY ends you are left wanting more.
This book will appeal to young adult readers who want a book with a supernatural twist while still dealing with real life situations that teens face. Some of the issues that are dealt with include drugs, alcohol, teen parents, and gangs.
This is a "can't put it down book," and perfect for a long weekend!
My daughter loved it! But you do have to stick to reading it at the beginning because you don't really know what's going on because of lack of full information. It's a true mystery and you have to use what info it gives to figure out what's happened! She is asking for another book like it or in the same series. We're going to look for one!!!
