    This is a "Keeper"!! - especially since it will be continuting as a provocative and inspiring chronicle.

    This book has a new and fresh story line, and the thought-provoking plot just thickens as you turn each page. When I first picked up the book, I didn't know what to expect. Without giving away the plot, I can honestly say I was NOT disappointed. The characters are well developed, and you can't help getting hooked on six year old Allyson and her "sightings". This story went from spooky to scary to challenging to endearing to inspirational - and what a ride it was! The ending was captivating and left me wanting to definitely continue Allyson's story.

    A Page-Turner!

    This was a really good read that, with a little editing, could easily become great. The story opens in 807 B.C., at the start of a sacrificial ceremony. From there, it quickly jumps ahead to the present day, where those past events gradually tie in to a six-year-old girl who has become a virtual shut-in. Wilson has obviously done his research, which makes the story feel that much more real.

    At times, the dialogue is slightly forced or awkward and certain other issues require a bit of editing. However, the plot moves at a great pace and kept me on the edge throughout. W.E.D. Wilson is definitely an author to watch for!

    Detailed Religious Thriller

    Six year old Allyson Carter has been a complete shut in since she was little. Her episodes of screaming and terror forced her parents to home school and exclude their friends and family from Allyson's life. She passes the day drawing on art tablets. Her parents seek the help of Bill Monroe, a theology professor from Northwestern University. He discovers a pattern in her drawings that he believes could be words. Bill consults with Clay Harker, an old friend and linguist with the Smithsonian. He determines that some of Allyson's drawing are words written in ancient Aramaic.

    Bill and Clay research these words in an effort to discover what is haunting the young girl. One name keeps recurring throughout her drawings, Jezebel. They begin to unravel the mystery around Allyson's drawings and what they learn is terrifying for the Clark family. They must all travel to Israel in an attempt to release Allyson from her part in an ancient prophecy.

    The Prophecy's Child: the unseen is a fast paced religious thriller. The author has researched the material extensively and that gives the reader a learning experience along side of the adventure. While the overall message behind the plot centers around the battle between the followers of God and the worshipers of false idols, this is not an indoctrination for any faith.

    I became very emotionally tied to the character Allyson. The author is able to passionately communicate the details of her condition. I could easily empathize with the family. The dynamic between Bill Monroe and Clay Harker is also very well done. While both are portrayed as good people, Clay's inner demons are a stark contrast. Allyson's parents were a little too perfect in my opinion. I would think dealing with a condition such as Allyson's would put some strain on a marriage.

    I did find some of the descriptions early in the novel a bit wordy. I like to learn things about characters and locations as the story moves along rather than be told up front. This didn't take away from the story for me and I found that these types of descriptions disappeared as the plot kicked into high gear.

    I read this book in just a few days, but could probably have finished it in one day without any distractions. The plot moves along quickly but not so fast that it feels rushed. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the sequel. While this book is the first in a series, it can stand alone with no problems.

    I received my copy of The Prophecy's Child: The Unseen via the Member Giveaway program over at Library Thing. The author mailed the book to me directly and signed my copy.

    Totally AWESOME

    This book kept me reading, I could not put it down. The author did an excellent research into history and was able to make it come forward into 2009. The story line had me waiting to see what was happening next. I can hardly wait for the sequel.

    A Book you won't want to put down!

    When I read this book, I was totally captivated. I usually read to a chapter end and then put the book down but this book kept me glued to my seat. The story line and history that is involved is very detailed and it shows that the writer did his research. I can't wait for the sequel!
