Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In this sequel to The Paladine Prophecy, Will and his Center for Integrated Learning classmates continue to uncover information about the super-secretive Knights of Charlemagne. Things swerve dangerously however when Ajay makes chance discovery that leads to disturbing news about members of their own group. The intensity gathers in a series that has already won favor with readers.

From the Publisher
The action-packed New York Times bestseller!

"Frost’s novel has action and suspense mixed with aliens and genetically modified humans, so it will appeal to science fiction fans." —SLJ

School Library Journal
02/01/2014
Gr 8 Up—Alliance is the second installment in Frost's action-packed series. While it is possible to enjoy without having read The Paladin Prophecy (Random House, 2012), events proceed fairly quickly, so readers may miss elements of the backstory. In this sequel, Will West and his roommates continue to uncover the evil doings of the Knights of Charlemagne, learning more about their history and finding even more secrets hidden at the Center. The Knights seem to anticipate every move Will and his friends make; could they have a traitor in their midst? Frost's novel has action and suspense mixed with aliens and genetically modified humans, so it will appeal to science fiction fans. There are several unresolved plot points which presumably will be tied up as the series continues. There is plenty of action, but lengthy explanations occasionally drag down the pacing. Purchase where the first book is popular or where there is a strong demand for sci-fi and mystery.—Saleena L. Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
2013-11-27
Will West faces old and new adversaries during summer vacation in this sloppy sequel to The Paladin Prophecy (2012). Several months have passed since Will and his roommates defeated the Knights of Charlemagne, but many questions remain about the Knights, their ties to the monsters of the Never-Was and the disappearance of Will's parents. A wealthy school donor emerges as a major player in the conspiracy, so Will and his friends develop a risky plan to use their extraordinary abilities—which include superspeed, telepathy and sonic power—to infiltrate and search his island home. Unfortunately, Frost's everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink approach to worldbuilding doesn't make more sense the second time around; even with a clumsy extended recap in the first chapter, the mix of secret societies, genetic manipulation, guardian angels and monsters from another dimension is hard to keep straight. The busy plot leaves little space for characterization. Will's two romantic interests are particularly underdeveloped, making the love triangle feel perfunctory, and Will's cross-country coach, Jericho, only appears when Will needs a convenient source of generic Native American mysticism and lore. When the obligatory cliffhanger ending comes, it's hard to care what happens next. This muddled adventure won't leave readers impatient for Book 3. (Adventure. 12-16)

    Great Book

    Alliance was a pretty great book, a nice continuation from the first book but lacking pages. The first book had 539 pages this secomg book is sigfinicantly shorter being only 359 pages long, I finished it in under 2 days. I just was expecting a little more from it I guess. It lacked the ...... kick the first book had to it, sort of to speak. But had a nice twist ending. Keep up the wrighting Mr. Frost. I really appreciate all the hard work you put into the book! I can't wait for the next one!!!!!!

    Really Good

    This book is amazing. While, in my opinion, it is not as good as the first book, it is still extrordinary in its own right. Reader of the I Am Number Four and Heros of Olympus series will surely enjoy this book. I have read the first book at least fifteen times, and I will probably do the same with this one until the third(and probably last) book comes out.
    I hope that the movie for the first book does great if only for the fact that I would love to see this book made into a movie.
    Lastly, Courtney is awesome. That's all folks.

    My son ranks this series among his all-time favorites. He was the first to read ALLIANCE, and he loved it. After an awesome first book, I always hold my breath as I wait for the sequel, hoping it won't be a disappointment. No worries about that here. ALLIANCE is a riveting adventure full of deepening character developments, refinement of the kids' powers, the undertaking of a mysterious quest, and an ending that leaves us reeling. Now, we wait . . . book 3 can't get here fast enough for my son.

    Good

    The book was a good sequal. Not a huge page turner but still a good book. Too short and is cut off too soon, wish the end of this book was extended. Will be looking forward to a third in this series. Hopefully iit is as good as the first book!
