Alliance by Mark Frost
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In The Paladin Prophecy Will West discovered a secret society known as the Knights of Charlemagne. He decides to stay at the Center during the summer break and discover what his new abilities include. His friends are also attempting to learn what they can do, but are realizing there are more secrets in their backgrounds that need to be uncovered. The group quickly discovers that there is a deeper plot that has been set in motion and it is not easy to decide who is really on their side.
Alliance is the second book in the Paladin Prophecy series and it leaves more questions unanswered then it answered. The story is action packed and readers barely have time to take a breath before another twist or turn approaches. Frost was able to deliver a compelling group of characters that have strengths and flaws like all of us. Second books are usually a hit or miss and this book swings both ways. Overall the story moved forward with purpose, but many segments of the story felt completely as if it was setting up for the next story without adding to this one. I loved the Paladin Prophecy and liked Alliance. I look forward to the third book which seems necessary after the unsatisfying ending.
