Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Imaginative and Exciting Sequel! The thrills and excitement continue in the second book in Mark Frost’s Paladin Prophecy, “Alliance” after ten of the Knights of Charlemagne, a secret organization at the Center for Integrated Learning in Wisconsin are brought to justice, Todd Hodak remains missing and Lyle Ogilvy has escaped from the lab where he’s being held only to have his body change. Looking for answers Will West and his alliance turn to Happy Jolly Nepsted the disfigured dwarf who maintains the equipment in the men’s locker room. But before he will tell them anything they must bring him the key to his cage which is hidden in the bowels of the earth underneath the Crag. Action-packed and loaded with mystery and the paranormal the plot continues as Will and his friends not only look for the “aphoric device” to open Nepsted’s cage, but also search for a link between the Knights, the Center, Mr. Hobbes and the Black Caps as the war between good and evil draws closer. In this story Mark Frost masterfully brings to light the history of the Knights, their experimentation with cosmic technology and genetics, their connection to the school and the ancients imprisoned in the Never-Was as well as to Will’s lineage. But the excitement never dies as the action builds when the teens discover an underground city and are chased by Mr. Hobbes, his Black Caps, and tree root creatures. Filled with witty metaphors and humor that break the tension Will even explores romance with Brook and Elise; both girls seemingly unaware of his affection for the other. As the teens develop and use their super-human powers, the intensity and suspense build with plot twists that culminate in a startling cliff-hanger and betrayal at the end that you don’t see coming and beg for a third book that will finally have the answers to the mystery. In a cavalcade of unforgettable characters there are familiar faces like Will West who’s determined, loyal, and insightful as well as calculating as he worms his way into a job at the Haxley mansion and gains access to the Center and the Knights’ historical records that go back to the 1930’s. And there are new personalities like the enigmatic and deceptive Mr. Elliot; the bull-headed, egotistical and entitled Courtney Hodak; and the arrogant and commanding bizillonaire Stan Huxley. In this plot, you see more of the “sharklike”, cool and confident Mr. Hobbes (aka Edgar Snow) and the frightened, lost, hopelessness of Happy Jolly Nepsted (aka Raymond Lewellyn). All infuse this heady mix of mystery and the supernatural with color, power and constant turmoil. I thoroughly enjoyed “Alliance” although slower in pace than the first novel as more clues to the past and the future conflict are unraveled. I look forward to reading the next book in this captivating trilogy.
